This is getting even more bizarre.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, under fire for his refusal to share knowledge with the very committee he chairs, is claiming Democrats are the ones not serious about investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.
If you believe nothing else, you can believe Democrats want to know if Russia tried to influence the election in Donald Trump’s favor.
“We’re beginning to figure out who’s actually serious about the investigation because it appears like the Democrats aren’t really serious about this investigation,” he told the media, as reported by NBC News.
Many Democrats, including Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, are calling for Nunes to step aside. After Nunes said he had seen evidence that Trump associates were incidentally surveilled after the election, it was revealed this week that he met with his source on White House grounds.
Personally, the amount of partisan politics going on in this investigation is sickening.
You would think both parties would want to scrutinize every available scintilla of evidence, for the good of the American people, but that’s not what’s happening.
Republicans are circling the wagons around Nunes and acting no better than Democrats acted during the hearings into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified emails.
Nunes said the Democrats have not given him a witness list and said as far as he knew they had done “very little” to read the documents provided by the intelligence agencies.
“So, at the end of the day here, we’re going to get to the truth, we’re going to find out who’s actually doing a real investigation,” he said.
Big words from a man whose own actions can only be described as “suspect,” and frankly, I’m a bit sickened by the hypocrisy.
Is it possible that Nunes and Republicans on the committee don’t realize they’re just a different side to the same filthy coin, or is this purposeful?
There is no honor in Washington. You go into that machine and whatever good intentions you may have started with, they’re quickly siphoned off and lost in the swirling morass of filth that passes as our government.
I’m completely disgusted with the entire lot of power-grabbing Corruptocrats and Reprobates.
