Thanks to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), Americans know far more about the Democrat/Deep State/mainstream media hoax narrative accusing the 2016 Trump campaign of criminal “collusion” with the Russian government to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton.
And despite the fact that his party no longer holds the majority in the House and he has lost his chairmanship of the Intelligence Committee to serial leaker and California colleague Adam Schiff, Nunes is continuing to work on exposing the fraud and ensuring that the men and women who helped perpetuate it are held accountable.
Nunes joined Fox Business Network host Maria Bartiromo on her “Sunday Morning Futures” program to discuss two of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators, how they have been compromised during the entire investigation.
The two discussed a letter sent to newly-minted Attorney General William Barr from Freedom Caucus Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) asking him to provide all documents and disclosures made by Meuller investigators Andrew Weissman and Zainab Ahmad related to their appointment to the special counsel’s office.
In addition, the two lawmakers want Barr to provide all documents and communications used to determine their supposed independence and how both were judged to be qualified to be on the special counsel’s team.
The request came after both questioned the impartiality of Weissman and Ahmad, as both demanded answers regarding what they may have done with information gleaned from the discredited and wholly fabricated “Steele dossier.”
“So Weissmann is the number two, he’s Mueller’s deputy. He was involved in the custody of the dossiers. In early 20016 he was given the dossier,” Nunes told Bartiromo.
“He is someone, along with the other one mentioned there, both DoJ people, both on the Mueller team. They shouldn’t be involved in this investigation,” he continued. “There’s clear regulations the DoJ has. You can’t be conflicted.
“Look, did they disclose before Mueller picked them that they were involved in the custody of the dossier?… We know these two individuals were involved in the custody of important evidence, dirt from the Clinton campaign that is the basis for the entire hoax,” Nunes said.
As we reported, top DoJ official Bruce Ohr testified last year that he told Weissmann and Ahmad about his meeting with former British spy Christopher Steele, alerting the two prosecutors that Steele was “desperate” to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president before the special counsel was appointed.
In their letter to Barr, Jordan and Meadows wrote:
Since beginning our investigation in October 2017, we have obtained evidence of political bias and self-described ‘unusual’ conduct within the Department raising questions about the independence of the Special Counsel’s Office. We learned several employees of the Special Counsel’s Office are affiliated with political opponents of President Trump.
Nunes said there is every indication that Weissman and Ahmad were not “independent investigators.”
“These are people who were in on it from the beginning… We also have information that Weissman was meeting with reporters,” Nunes said.
“And this is part of this whole disinformation campaign… You also had people with the Department of Justice and the FBI who were briefing reporters. What was Weissman doing talking to AP reporters? We asked those questions and never got those answers,” he added.
Maybe Barr can provide them.
