Devin Nunes

From Publishing the Pentagon Papers to Suppressing the Nunes Memo

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

It all depends on whose ox is being gored, of course. If the release of government secrets hurts Republicans or some cherished conservative cause, journalists support it. If the release hurts Democrats or some cherished liberal cause, they oppose it. Daniel Ellsberg, good. Devin Nunes, bad. But unlike Ellsberg, Nunes has broken no laws. No matter; the media will treat him as a traitor while exonerating real ones.

Naming Names Is Mandatory in the House Intelligence Memo

The current House investigation into the activities of the FBI is of paramount, even epoch, importance -- way beyond the brain-deadening partisanship that seems to be engulfing the discussion.  Everyone, no matter the party, no matter the belief, even if they are foolish enough not to realize it, will be at risk at one time or another from the titanic (and anonymous) technological capabilities of government.

Rep. Devin Nunes: Twenty-First Century Patriot

There are few patriots in Washington who will stand in the breach and take the pressure, smears and abuse that Devin Nunes has suffered since he resolved to make public the memo about Obama-era FBI and Department of Justice attempts to undermine Donald Trump. All liberty loving Americans of whatever political stripe owe him a debt of gratitude for his patriotism, perseverance and integrity.

FISA Memo Released FBI Assistant Director Resigns

The FBI Director himself read the memo on Sunday night, and HPSCI staffers met with FBI agents on Monday to further discuss its contents. After the memo was released to the FBI Director, FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe abruptly resigned. However, it may not have been the FISA memo alone that gave McCabe the push out the door.

What We Know About #ReleaseTheMemo

The Nunes memo is the first official document to summarize and substantiate the explosive charges against Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Director James Comey. The public has a right to see that evidence, and Congress has a duty to expose and refer for prosecution all of those involved – especially those who are still serving in government.

#ReleaseTheMemo: Senator Grassley Unloads On FBI And DOJ

If we were betting men, we’d bet that Chairman Chuck Grassley's outrage with the FBI amd DOJ signals he has uncovered evidence that they are neck deep in the peddling of the phony Trump dossier and he’s not happy that the criminals at the Justice Department are now investigating themselves.

The FBI-Led Coup Against President Trump

It is time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to recover control of their agencies before the soft coup being led by Robert Mueller, James Comey and rogue FBI agent Peter Strzok engenders a real constitutional crisis.

Trump Tweets Order To DOJ: Will Sessions Override Corrupt Dems And Comply?

As much as we respect Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Trump wasn’t elected, and he wasn’t appointed Attorney General, to continue the Obama-era policies of defying congressional subpoenas. If Jeff Sessions can’t get his underlings to comply with Congressional subpoenas heads should roll – either theirs or his.

Keeping Devin Nunes out of the game

Byron York, Washington Examiner

As the Russia case continues to dominate public attention, the House investigation is going largely without its chairman, who has been pushed to the side by an unusual investigation that Republicans believe is being extended for the purpose of keeping the chairman away from the Russia affair. And there is no idea of when that situation might change.

Chairman Nunes Plows Ahead With Unmasking Investigation

Debra Heine, PJ Media

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes sent three subpoenas to the CIA, FBI, and NSA, asking for details about any unmasking requests made by former national security adviser Susan Rice, former U.N. ambassador Samantha Power, and former CIA director John Brennan in 2016 and January 2017.

Mr. Nunes Went to Washington

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

It seems that the explosive unmasking charges are at last being seriously investigated. The mainstream media has caricatured Nunes’s bulldog bluntness in going public as naive and partisan, and they have predicted his demise as a committee chairman amid a climate of hysteria. Instead, Nunes seems unconcerned and plows straight ahead — in the fashion of dairy farmers from the Central Valley of California.

A Scandal So Great It Has No Name

The intentional targeting of Obama’s political opponents – even members of Congress, reporters, business people, citizens is becoming more obvious says former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova, who calls for a federal grand jury to reveal the truth about the Obama-era intelligence leakers and their abuse of power.

In the Nunes Affair, Don’t Lose Sight of the Unanswered Questions

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Nunes’s lapses have raised the decibel level of calls for a special congressional committee to take over the investigation. We may end up there, but I still believe the House and Senate Intelligence Committees should first have an opportunity to show they can do the job; I harbor no illusions that a special committee would be any less partisan than the existing committees.

Intelligence Committee Democrats Launch Civil War Against Trump

The behavior of Rep. Adam Schiff and other Democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence isn’t caused by their purported outrage at the phony allegations of Russian “hacking” of the 2016 election; it is merely the latest episode in a long running series of Democrats politicizing leaks and using secret intelligence to discredit their political opponents.
