Well, speaking of “bombshells”…

  • HOUSE INTEL CHAIRMAN NUNES TO STEP DOWN FROM RUSSIA PROBE
  • RYAN SAYS NUNES CONTINUES TO HAVE HIS TRUST

Nunes 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.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) will temporarily step aside from an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, including interactions between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

The probe will be taken over by Reps. Michael Conaway (R-Texas), Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and Tom Rooney (R-Fla.)

  1. Consider this: Bannon was directly responsible for Nunes’ stupidity. Nunes got his “info” from Ezra Cohen-Watnick, one of Bannon’s lackeys. I’ll bet ten shares of XOM that Bannon instructed Ezra Cohen-Watnick. Bannon said “jump”, and Nunes said “how high?”. Now Bannon is [maybe] losing power, and Nunes is being investigated for ethics.
    Priceless!
