Nunes on Rush Limbaugh says he is not going to take DOJ’s crap
Devin Nunes says he is not going to take the FBI and DOJ’S crap in regards to his investigation. Congress is for oversight and controls funding for departments such as the FBI.
Nunes was responding to a question from Rush that some have suggested he should be careful what he reveals about the FBI there could be repercussions. Nunes said that is the problem with the FBI, CIA, IRS and many government agencies they had become weaponized. And he would not take their crap.
Nunes is the Chairman of the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and was a member of President Trump’s transition team. It is the primary committee in the U.S. House of Representatives charged with the oversight of the United States Intelligence Community, though it does share some jurisdiction with other committees in the House, including the Armed Services Committee for some matters dealing with the Department of Defense and the various branches of the US Military.

The controversial “Nunes Memo” claims that the FBI and Department of Justice officials were aware that the author of the so-called Steele dossier, used to secure a FISA warrant to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and had a strong bias against Donald Trump and his run for the presidency.
The decision by Nunes to employ an obscure rule to release classified information for partisan political purposes crossed a dangerous line, and increases the risk of a constitutional crisis and another Saturday Night Massacre.

Adam Schiff (Trump calls him Little Adam Schiff) the ranking Democrat on the House committee has done everything he can to stop the release of the memo. The FBI also has stonewalled the investigation. Devin Nunes said they have been trying to get the documents to run the investigation since last August and just received them a few weeks ago. The FBI and intelligence community is protecting itself and it is now time Americans see how the Obama administration used them as weapons against the citizenry.
