(National Sentinel) Hoax: The FBI began its ‘counterintelligence’ investigation into the Trump campaign in July 2016. In May 2017, Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate alleged nefariousness involving “Trump-Russia collusion.”
But in the year since, despite the expenditure of millions in taxpayer dollars, Mueller hasn’t found jack — and he isn’t going to find it either because no such criminal activity involving the Trump campaign and Russia exists.
Don’t take our word for it. Take the word of the House Intelligence Committee chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.
As reported by the Washington Examiner, in the year that Mueller and his Democrat-supporting prosecutors have been on this case, Congress hasn’t found a shred of evidence that criminal collusion took place.
What’s more, Nunes said that Congress has yet to see any legitimate reason as to why the Justice Department decided to launch its counterintelligence probe a year before Mueller showed up.
“We have yet to see any credible evidence or intelligence that led to the opening of this investigation,” the California Republican said on Fox News.
The Washington Examiner noted further:
Nunes has been pushing the Justice Department to explain how it justified the launch of the special counsel investigation that has hounded Trump for a year now. He and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., are keying off a statement from Fusion GPS’ Glenn Simpson, who said a source within the Trump campaign provided information for the controversial Trump dossier.
Nunes said if there was a “spy” of some sorts in Trump’s campaign, that could look bad for the Justice Department since it could give the appearance that they were trying to set up Trump for a fall.
“I think what it really means, I think it will look badly on the Department of Justice and the FBI on how they conducted this investigation,” he said.
The chairman added that he and others on his panel believe that Simpson was telling the truth — when he made reference to someone inside Trump’s campaign during congressional testimony last year. That’s why he wants Jeff Sessions’ DoJ to come clean.
“We believe he was telling the truth, and what we’re trying to do is get the documents to figure out did they actually have… what methods were used to open this counterintelligence investigation,” he said.

Nunes then said what needs to be said over and over again: That the Justice Dept. never should have launched a counterintelligence probe against a rival political campaign in the first place.
“I believe they never should have opened a counterintelligence investigation into a political party,” he said.
This investigation was phony to begin with. It was made up. It’s a fabrication.
The only “collusion” that Nunes has seen — and that we have seen — was between Russian operatives and the Clinton campaign.
Deniers will claim that Nunes and the Republicans can’t be trusted on this because they are partisans who are just trying to run cover for Trump.
Fact: If such evidence did exist a) Mueller would have brought charges by now; because b) the information would have been leaked to the media — perhaps even by a certain Democratic member of the Intelligence Committee.
