(Jul. 28, 2019) — In an interview with Maria Bartiromo of “Sunday Morning Futures,” ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes described former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, capping a 22-month investigation assumed from the FBI, as “nothing more, nothing less than a cover-up.”

The interview, conducted in two sequential parts, began with Nunes stating that Mueller, who testified Wednesday to the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, “didn’t write the report.”

Following Mueller’s testimony on Capitol Hill, many observers reached the same conclusion, including Harvard Law School Prof. Emeritus Alan Dershowitz.  Some speculated further that Mueller may not, in fact, have overseen the investigation, but that rather, it was carried out by a number of prosecutors on his 19-member “team.”

During the second segment, Nunes said that former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos “had been cooperating” with Mueller’s investigation prior to his July 2017 arrest at Dulles Airport by the FBI. Papadopoulos would later accept a plea agreement on one count of lying to the FBI for which he served 12 days in federal prison last year.

“None of this makes any sense, and it really looks like the Mueller team — remember, I call it the Mueller ‘dossier’ — Mueller clearly wasn’t involved in this, but look, this is nothing more, nothing less than a cover-up,” Nunes told Bartiromo.

Chairman of the Intelligence Committee during the 115th Congress, Nunes has long contended that the FBI opened its investigation much earlier than July 31, 2016, the date the law-enforcement agency has officially provided.

For the first time, Nunes disclosed that according to the committee’s investigation, the FBI placed Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret) under investigation in 2015 for an alleged affair with a former Russian national who is now a British citizen. Flynn became President Trump’s first national security adviser but was forced to resign three weeks later after parts of his conversation with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak were leaked to The Washington Post.

Nunes and others have observed that the perpetrators of leaks which plagued the Trump transition and early presidency have not yet been identified nor prosecuted.

In response to Bartiromo’s question, “Who is the mastermind of the plan to insert Donald Trump into Russia meddling…?” Nunes responded, “…The Clinton campaign’s involved. We know the FBI is involved to some degree; we don’t know exactly what they were doing before July 31, 2016.  Why? Because they wouldn’t answer the questions that we had over the last two years.  And in fact, when we were getting close — we wanted transcripts, there were things that we wanted — those were not given to the United States House of Representatives under Republican control. You know why? Because the Mueller ‘dossier’ team wouldn’t let us have them.  So that’s why I say somebody needs to look at these characters that were on Mueller’s team.  I think they obstructed justice; they obstructed a Congressional investigation,” he said.

  1. It’s ‘broken record’, as in spinning repetitively cycling vinyl disk, time again. Time to regurgitate Senate Resolution (SR) 511.

    Caveat to next paragraph: I understand that putative president Chester Arthur was a usurper too, but I believe that he was a lone wolf and possibly only he and his close associates were privy on the usurpation deception.

    When the U.S. Senate blatantly, but coyly, passed SR 511 during the month of April 2008, with a 99-member “YEA” vote, they set into motion the Original Sin of the usurpation of the office of the presidency of the U.S.A. The Senate portion of the U.S. Congress dug a hole and they keep digging, because there is no other way to avoid the dilemma that they are in. This Resolution resulted in the Obama usurper lawlessness, the H. Clinton security violation lawlessness, the spying on Donald Trump lawlessness before and after the 2016 general election, and the Mueller Probe lawlessness – and many more lawlessness actions that would consume too much space in this comment.

    SR 511 resulted in a rogue unconstitutional government and the U.S. Senate knows it. Simultaneously, the U.S. House of Representatives knows this too, based on the fact that they have been lying to their constituents on a 24/7-basis about Obama’s presidential legitimacy both before and after the 2008 and 2012 elections.

    Yes, the full U.S. Senate rushed on over to the General Store and they each purchased a digging shovel with SR 511 stamped on the handle. They will keep digging to avoid treason charges, because they know they messed with the U.S. Constitution.

  2. President Donald Trump announced via Twitter on Sunday that National Intelligence Director Dan Coats would be stepping down on Sunday and that conservative Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) would be nominated to take his place.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Love it.

  3. It’s obvious to me. The anti-American fraud who goes by the name Barack Hussein Obama is the primary instigator and key cheerleader of this perverse attempt to at first, prevent Trump’s election and then ultimately remove Donald Trump from office. For Mueller to play along with this abomination of justice tells me that his 4 1/2 years as FBI director under the Obama regime required some covering up too. IMO Mueller is a complicit deep-stater who is feigning ignorance, perhaps hoping that his pathetic performance can provide some cover under the guise of elder befuddlement and misunderstanding. Time to round them all up. All of them deserve to be treated as the traitors they are.
