Devin Nunes Warns Democrats And Media They Won’t Like Declassified Info On Russia And Spy Warrants
Devin Nunes knows a lot more than the average person in Congress when it comes to the Russia investigation. He is an ally of Trump and he has been pushing for Trump to declassify documents related to the FISA warrants that led to investigations of the dossier and Russia.
Nunes is now warning Democrats and the media that they won’t like what they see.
The Daily Caller reports:
NUNES: DEMOCRATS, JOURNALISTS WILL BE ‘FRIGHTENED’ BY DECLASSIFIED TRUMP-RUSSIA DOCUMENTS
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said this week that Democrats and the media are likely to be “frightened” by the information contained in Trump-Russia documents that Republicans are asking President Trump to declassify.
Speaking at an event hosted by the Center for Security Policy on Thursday, Nunes said that Trump is close to declassifying portions of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant granted against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
On July 21, the Justice Department released heavily redacted versions of four FISA warrants granted against Page from Oct. 2016 through June 2017…
Nunes, a close ally of Trump’s, noted that Democrats and media pundits claimed after the initial release of the FISAs that “the really bad stuff about the Trump campaign was buried in the redactions.”
“And I said, you know what, you might be right. We should declassify the whole thing,” Nunes said Thursday, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Nunes asserted that Trump’s critics have backed away from that argument out of fear that the rest of the FISA application will be damaging to the FBI and the narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.
“And you know why? Because I think they’re going to be frightened by what you see,” Nunes said of Democrats and the press.
The fact that Nunes is saying this so confidently leads one to believe the declassified documents will blow a major hole in the left’s narrative about Russia.
This report from the Washington Free Beacon is very telling:
Intel Chair: FBI, Justice Corrupted for Political Spying
Democrats and their media allies seeking to advance a liberal political agenda corrupted the FBI and Justice Department in improperly spying on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence said this week.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), the intelligence panel head who has spearheaded an investigation into corruption at the FBI, also warned in a speech that China has emerged as the most serious strategic threat facing the United States…
“The reason that the press is completely, finally, essentially come out of their shell and became who they always were is because they don’t know what to do,” he said.
“So they’ve put everything they have out on the field and this is really Nancy Pelosi’s last stand,” Nunes noted.
“The reason that they have this fight, the reason that they have Antifa, the reason that they’re protesting, the reason that they’re causing all of these riots, the reason that they’re doing things that you normally wouldn’t see in this country, the reason that they’re actually willing to corrupt the FBI and the DOJ—they’re doing it because we’re winning folks,” he said.
“We’re winning and I think we have a good chance to win this fall if we keep the faith, stay on message, and help out our colleagues.”
