Pelosi: Intel chairman 'a stooge of the president'

Source: The Hill



BY MIKE LILLIS - 03/23/17 12:23 PM EDT

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hammered the Republican chairman of the Intelligence Committee on Thursday, saying Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is simply a “stooge” for President Trump who can’t be trusted to lead an unbiased investigation into ties between Russia and the White House.

Pelosi said Nunes “acted outside the circle of respect” for his responsibility as Intelligence chairman when he went Wednesday to the press and the president with new information surrounding the panel’s probe into Russian hacking of the 2016 election and possible surveillance of Trump's team — without telling the other members of the committee.

“By being a stooge of the president of the United States,” Pelosi charged, “he has demonstrated very clearly that there is no way there can be an impartial investigation under his leadership on that committee.”

Pelosi, who has called for months for an outside independent investigation of the Russian hacking and influence campaign, said Nunes’s actions only accentuate the need for Congress to create such a panel. “Chairman Nunes is deeply compromised, and he cannot possibly lead an honest investigation,” she charged.

5. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is simply a stooge for President Trump-the Republican Party patsy

Trump should turn on them, tell what he knows before Republican 'leaders' get rid of him and Pence takes over.


Patsy | Define Patsy at Dictionary.com
www.dictionary.com/browse/patsy

"fall guy, victim of a deception," 1903, of uncertain origin, possibly an alteration of Italian pazzo "madman" (see patch (n.2)), or south Italian dialectal paccio "fool."

15. Nunes is no victim-he is a perp. How do you get patsy from a co-conspirator?

Nor is Turd a patsy or a victim..

19. It's collusion.

I'm pretty sure Turd thought he was getting one over on everyone, including the repubs.
The patsy here is our country.

11. Nunes and Comey are both compromised

Independent means
- not investigating your own actions (like Nunes is)
- not investigating the guy you believe in (like Comey is)

Independent is somebody not connected to either side, and no fucks to give.

How about Barack Obama? He'd make a great independent prosecutor.

12. Republicans politicians are the lying scum of the earth.

They are a more most serious threat to our Republic than our traditional foes. They have consistently but their party first at the jeopardy of the people's best interest. They and their cadre of oligarchs have only one concern. Their enrichment is at the expense of the of very people who are stupid enough to swallow their propaganda. It appears that they must be stopped if the Republic is to survive. It is imperative that Trump and the entirety of his administration be relegated to the ash can.

13. This is actually good news because it is a bullet-proof argument for an independent

investigation.
