Mike Flynn told special counsel Robert Mueller everything, which includes the role of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) in the Russia scandal
The Valley Voice, a community newspaper in Nunes’s district wrote in November 2017:
As reported by the Valley Voice in May, on January 18, Nunes attended a breakfast meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu at the invitation of disgraced former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who was also present. Former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus may also have attended.
Nunes and Flynn were members of the Trump administration’s transition team at the time the meeting took place. Two days after the meeting, Flynn accepted his position as national security adviser to the President. By February 13, he had been fired for failing to disclose his paid work as a Turkish lobbyist.
The meeting took place in a Trump-owned hotel.
Devin Nunes Was The Point Man For The House GOP Russia Cover-Up
Rep. Nunes used his position as the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee to obstruct, derail, and eventually shut down the committee’s Russia investigation. Nunes worked against the investigation that he was supposed to have recused himself from at every turn. Nunes was Trump’s man on the inside in the House. He floated bogus conspiracy theories, abused his powers, and generally made it impossible for the House to investigate the Russia scandal.
His behavior was originally thought to have been an effort to save Trump, but with Mike Flynn singing to Mueller, it is possible that Nunes was also trying to save himself. Nunes admitted on secret audio that the Trump campaign may have committed crimes.
Mike Flynn was a member of the Trump transition team, so were Devin Nunes, and Vice President Mike Pence.
If the transition team is as dirty as the campaign was, Devin Nunes could have a big Robert Mueller problem and might be the next figure in Trump’s orbit to go down.
