Before you tell me you are tired of hearing this, just stop and listen. This is not the same as the other times we have been disappointed. Nunes is not asking for an investigation, because none is needed. The referral in this round is limited to the low lying fruit, perjury and leaking.
But more importantly, neither Jeff Sessions or Rod Rosenstein will be the decision maker, it will be AG Bill Barr, known for his zeal in prosecuting corruption from both parties. The indictments will not happen overnight, but neither will they take months or years. The DOJ will just check to make sure Nunes facts are correct.
House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) is planning to send a criminal referral next week to the Justice Department that will detail “multiple referrals on a number of different crimes,” including leaking classified information, as part of his investigation into misconduct at the Justice Department and the FBI.
“As of now, it’ll be one criminal referral but with multiple referrals on a number of different crimes,” he told Breitbart News on Wednesday in an exclusive interview. “We will have some leakers in there for sure.”
He said on the ending of the Special Counsel investigation after it found the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia, “We knew this was a joke from the beginning, and I’ve said as much for a long time. Basically, from the time our report came out, which has been a year. But now, the real work begins. It’s good to not have that sitting out there. But we have to now go on offense and track down all these dirty cops and bad players.”
