During one of his many recent interviews, former FBI director James Comey said it’s “possible” that Russia has dirt on President Trump. It was an incredibly irresponsible thing to say and Devin Nunes recently fired back during an appearance on FOX News.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Devin Nunes: ‘It’s possible’ the Russians have dirt on James Comey
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., took a rhetorical jab at James Comey on Tuesday, responding to the former FBI director’s open-ended suggestion that it was “possible” that the Russians have dirt on President Trump.
During an interview on Fox News with host Sean Hannity, the California Republican said, “The irony here is quite frankly hard to believe.”
“Well, it’s certainly possible that the Russians could have information on Comey,” Nunes suggested. “It’s certainly possible that the Russians could have information on Hillary Clinton. It is certainly possible that they have information on all kinds of people.”
Nunes and Hannity were reacting to Comey’s ABC interview in which he said it was “possible” but “unlikely” that Trump is compromised by Russian operatives in the wake of unsubstantiated claims made in the controversial Steele dossier.
Kudos to Nunes for doing this. Republicans have to start pushing back on all this nonsense.
