Donald Trump and Devin Nunes are working together to discover the name of a secret U.S. intelligence source so they can disclose his identity. Their goal is to undercut the credibility of the Mueller investigation. The practical effect of disclosing the name of a secret intelligence source, however, is that it may get him killed. It also may completely destroy the viability of other ongoing U.S. intelligence operations.
As Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes (R – CA) has become a hero to Republicans and a laughingstock to Democrats. His committee’s “investigation” into the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia during the 2016 election was indeed a total joke, although Republicans (especially the president) loved it because it concluded that without a doubt there was absolutely NO collusion between Trump and Russia.
Devin Nunes could be in trouble, and his supposedly safe congressional seat may be at risk due to an issue which has made him famous: the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections.
Republican lawmaker Devin Nunes' investigation into whether Obama administration officials used classified intelligence reports to discredit Donald Trump's 2016 campaign team could backfire on the congressman - and the president, sources familiar with the reports said.
Sean Spicer tried to put an end to questions about the need for a special prosecutor to investigate President Trump's Russian connections with nothing but arrogant outrage.
Spicer demanded, “I guess my question would be, 'A Special Prosecutor for what?'"
