Yet another insulation layer of Donald Trump’s from his Russia scandal has been stripped away, and an angry Trump appears to know it. House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes was supposed to act as a failsafe if his committee states investigating Trump. But now Trump has comprehended that the bumbling Nunes has made things worse instead of better. And so now Trump is publicly attacking the House Intel Committee in deceitful fashion.
NUNES GOT CLASSIFIED INTEL
Devin Nunes was given classified intel by someone last Tuesday evening, in unfitting manner, which revealed some kind of surveillance of Trump’s transition team in respect to Russia. Nunes unfittingly delivered the evidence to Trump, then told four or five various contrasting forms of his story to the public. He’s made things even worse for Trump, and now there’s pressure for Nunes to resign or recuse himself from the investigation totally. Of course that would permit the House Intel Committee to pursue an honest investigation into Trump-Russia. Now, Trump has begun attacking the committee.
Trump’s angry tweet-storm invokes absurd false claims about his election opponent in an attempt at changing the subject: “Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech money to Bill, the Hillary Russian “reset,” praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!”
CLAIMS MADE BEFORE
Donald Trump has made these claims about Hillary and Russia and Uranium before, but PolitiFact long ago ruled that the claims are “mostly false”. Trump is now using fake stories about Hillary in order to attack the House Intel Committee, indicating just how deeply backed into a corner he is. He groomed Nunes during the transition period in the hope that doing so would prevent the committee from being able to properly come after him. He’s only doing this now because he knows Nunes is burned and there’s little lingering to protect him.
