Nuñes Revelations on Obama PANICKED Democrats [VIDEO]
When Congressman Devin Nuñes (R-CA) made a statement to the press yesterday, he did much more than confirm that Trump was right about Obama’s wiretapping scheme.
As George Orwell once wrote, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”
The Washington Establishment overflows with deception. And Nuñes started a revolution by telling the truth directly to the American people.
In his press conference yesterday, the House Intelligence Committee chair indicated he has proof that the intelligence community surveilled and wiretapped members of the Trump campaign.
But, Nuñes went further. He confirmed that the Obama administration knew about this surveillance. This allegation substantiates the president’s earlier allegation that Obama and his team “wiretapped” him.
Normally, journalists are tasked with speaking truth to power. But Nuñes felt the need expose Obama’s misdeeds against Trump for public scrutiny. As a result of Nuñes’ public revelations, Democrats are in panic mode. Thus, they have struck out against the California congressman with every insult in their toolbox.
Democrat Outrage rained down swift and hard on Nuñes.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), struck first.
“I think he has demonstrated that there is some question about his respect for the committee. I think he sent a signal that as a member of the Trump transition team himself, he probably should not be intricately involved in this investigation.”
Insulting her colleague further, Pelosi said Nuñes was an idiot or a “willing stooge.”
“I don’t know if that was a cry for help, or ‘let me out of here,’ or whatever that was. But it was highly unusual. Outside, the accepted behavior of a Chairman of an intelligence or any committee.”
What’s unusual is a president wiretapping the presidential campaign of an opposing political party. That is a hell of a lot more damning and illegal than Nuñes conveying the truth about it to the American people.
Did Nuñes strike a nerve, perchance?
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), deflecting criminality away from his pal, former President Obama, called for an investigation against Nuñes.
“What he did was basically to go to the President, who is being investigated by the FBI and others and by the intelligence committee, to give them information.”
You’d have to be Stevie Wonder to see that one coming. Why bother, when we can just check Obama’s wiretaps?!
Obama’s treachery in surveilling an opposing party’s presidential candidate goes far beyond acceptable standards of a president’s executive powers.
Remember when Democrats railed against then-President George W. Bush granting increased powers to the U.S. intelligence community following the 9-11 terrorist attacks? A national security response to the largest terror attack in U.S. history seemed like a pretty good reason at the time.
But, Cummings voted no on allowing electronic surveillance without a warrant in 2007. However, in a complete reversal, Cummings voted to expand those same federal surveillance powers just four years later.
Cummings standard for that reversal?
A black, Leftist president get a pass when trouncing individual liberties, whereas a white Republican one does not.
Others including, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Rep. Donald M. Payne, Jr. (D-NJ), and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) allege that Nuñes’ actions compromised his lead position in the House investigation of Russian interference into the U.S. election. Payne even called Nuñes to step down from chairing the committee.
The Nuñes disclosure on surveillance conducted against Donald Trump and his campaign is likely just the tip of the D.C. abuse of power iceberg. Cummings would see Nuñes punished for that. Because deflection is how criminals avoid accountability.
