Devin Nunes was on fire during the sham hearings called by Jerry Nadler. He asked a question of the two former NeverTrumper FBI agents that made them stare in disbelief.
He asked them if it was usual FBI protocol to hire Christopher Steele when he was also being paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Neither witness answered. Nunes went on to say that the investigation into Trump started in 2015 and not July 2016 as previously testified by James Comey and others.
He then warned that the Counterintelligence Department at the FBI was in deep trouble.
“There’s been a lot of talk about when this investigation began, now that’s an open-ended question because we can say this investigation coulda begun in 2015 because we know some of the same players were having run-ins with individuals that have questionable ties to either Western intelligence or possibly political campaign operatives, but officially they have said that it started at the end of July .” Nunes said.
Nunes blasted the Steele-Media-Mueller loop of information, leaks and articles that ravaged the US for years and said the FBI is in big trouble.
The FBI witnesses were left speechless when Nunes asked them if it’s normal to have an FBI informant (Christopher Steele) who was paid by the FBI to investigate Trump’s campaign while simultaneously being paid by the Clinton campaign to investigate Trump — then went on to leak to the press.
“This counterintelligence department over at the FBI I think is in big trouble — the fact that you guys are sitting here, former FBI officials, and not saying anything and basically making the case that it is ok to use these very special powers to target a political campaign really troubles me,” Nunes said warning the FBI witnesses.
