Democrats need to start playing the long game. Because when the GOP recovers the House in November, leftists will find themselves in hot water.
Actually, I think it will be more like quick sand. Democrats wasted almost four years on a complete and total witch hunt. They’ve lied and schemed and pushed hard-working honest men in the mud. But as they say, turn-about is fair play.
As Fox News explains:
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., warned Friday that Republicans have subpoenas “ready to go” if they take back the majority of the House of Representatives in November, saying they plan to continue investigating and interviewing top FBI and Justice Department (DOJ) officials involved in the Russia investigation.
In an interview with Fox News on the sidelines of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Friday, Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said it was difficult for people to “trust the FBI and DOJ” after the bureau’s initial Russia probe and former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s nearly two-year-long investigation.
That probe led to no evidence of a conspiracy or coordination between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election.
“You can be sure of this, if we take the House in November, we have subpoenas ready to go that will continue going after these dirty cops,” Nunes told Fox News.
Nunes went on to bash Democrats, specifically Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for not taking action to make “reforms” to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process.
We can rewind all the way back to the Mueller Report. The thirty-two million-dollar flop. At that point no Democrat in the world should’ve stood by their Russian collusion concocted theory. But they did. Then they tried to cover up the truth. Meanwhile, Republicans waited patiently for the Horowitz report to set the record straight.
And now, Democrats try to deflect as the truth pushed its way to the top. But Nunes is relentless, as he’s been from day 1. Thus, he won’t stop until every crooked leftist is exposed.
“What they’re trying to do is a cover-up — they’re trying to cover up the fact that their party was involved in the biggest political scandal in modern U.S. history, where they fed disinformation, likely Russian disinformation from a campaign into the FBI and opened an investigation on the other campaign,” Nunes said.
“They’re doing everything they can to not make reforms and that’s not going to be sufficient,” he said.
Nunes and Republicans on the Intelligence Committee have been blasting Schiff and Democrats and accusing them of ignoring FISA abuse, following the release of a scathing Justice Department inspector general report that revealed significant misconduct.
Justice Department Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz, in his Dec. 9, 2019 report, identified “17 serious shortcomings related to the conduct” of the surveillance of former Trump campaign foreign policy aide Carter Page, and that the FBI made repeated errors and misrepresentations before the FISA court, as they sought to monitor Page in 2016 and 2017.
Obviously, that only scratches the surface. You can expect to hear the word FISA over and over in the coming months.
Right now, Democrats have one smart move. They can reform FISA according to GOP recommendations. But I have a feeling the left isn’t quite that smart. Thus, FISA will play a role in the 2020 election. The intrusions on our President will be avenged at the ballot box.
“It is complicated to fix FISA,” Nunes told Fox News. “We’re going to give all of the information. We have a lot of ideas, we want to see those ideas and give them sunlight, so we’re going to give those ideas to Democratic leadership and they can choose to negotiate with us or do nothing.”
He added: “At the end of the day, they’re in charge.”
But make no mistake. November is just around the corner. And the change of the guard is preordained.
