(NationalSentinel) Politics: Let’s be crystal clear about two things: The Russians did not “hack the election” to help Donald J. Trump become president, and there is no Trump-Russia “collusion” to steal said election.
These two post-election memes have been created out of whole cloth by the Marxist Left, led by Team Obama from the White House and his sycophants in the “mainstream” media. There is nothing to it, at least in terms the Democrats and the media are trying to define.
So knowing that, why in the world would House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., hand the political enemy a victory by “recusing” himself from his own committee’s probe into this bogus narrative?
We don’t have an answer to that just yet, but Nunes has nevertheless stepped aside, turning over the Russia “investigation” to Reps. Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney.
Nunes added that the recusal will last while House Ethics Cmte reviews accusations against him he calls “politically motivated.” Nunes will keep his other responsibilities as chairman.
Here’s his statement:
“Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics. The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.
“Despite the baselessness of the charges, I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter.
“I will continue to fulfill all my other responsibilities as Committee Chairman, and I am requesting to speak to the Ethics Committee at the earliest possible opportunity in order to expedite the dismissal of these false claims.”
If the claims are false and the charges are politically motivated – as they so clearly are – you have to ask yourself at what point in time will Republicans grow and spine and figure out they are in a political war with the Alt-Left Democratic Party for the survival and future of our republic?
Because it doesn’t make a damned bit of difference what Nunes says, the Left – and their echo chamber, the establishment media – will use this as “proof” that Nunes was “compromised” after he passed along intelligence information to President Donald J. Trump not related to the Russia probe indicating he and his campaign and transition teams had been improperly surveilled and unmasked by the Obama regime.
Nunes was simply doing his job. And as for the intel he passed along, he was given it by sources within the Deep State who knew that the [alleged] unmasking of Trump Team personnel by Obama functionaries Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes was improper and potentially illegal. He has no reason to ‘recuse’ himself from his own committee.
If you want to fully understand what is taking place and what is at stake, we urge you to read this brilliant piece by Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage Magazine. The Left is waging war against our system and these damned fool Republicans are too meek to step up to the challenge or are too stupid to understand their enemy.
Either way, it doesn’t bode well for the survival of the republic.
