Devin Nunes was on with Lou Dobbs last night and discussed an array of topics. He interjected one thing near the end, however, saying that we’re about to learn what the Mueller team was really doing during their time investigating Russian collusion (it’s cued up to 6:14):
Devin Nunes first makes the point of how absurd the sentencing recommendation was for Roger Stone, noting that James Wolfe both leaked classified information and lied to the FBI and only gets a couple months in prison. Roger Stone, he says, who shouldn’t have been investigated in the first place, was charged with lying to Congress and they are trying to get him almost 10 years. I’ll add that Nunes was also charged with witness intimidation.
Nunes goes on to add that with respect to these four stone prosecutors that resigned yesterday, there will be more to come regarding the Mueller team and what they were really doing for the last few years:
DAILY WIRE – “There’s more to come on this,” Nunes told Dobbs. The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee added that the prosecutors behind the lengthy sentencing recommendation for Stone all resigned and a shorter sentence was recommended in a new court filing.
“We think there’s other examples of things that they did during the Mueller investigation that I think you and your listeners and the American people will be very interested to learn in the coming weeks as we start to unpeel the onion of what the Mueller team was really doing,” Nunes said.
As the Examiner’s Daniel Chaitin reported, Nunes “did not share any specifics, but the origins of the Russia investigation are being reviewed by Attorney General William Barr’s hand-picked prosecutor from Connecticut, John Durham.”
“The case against retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently took a wild turn, with the former White House national security adviser seeking to withdraw his guilty plea on a charge of lying to the FBI and the Justice Department changing its position on a recommended sentence,” Chaitlin added.
While the Mueller investigation took place, several members of Trump’s campaign orbit were charged with crimes, yet none of those crimes had to do with Russian collusion. Flynn was charged with lying to the FBI even though he didn’t commit an underlying crime. Stone was charged with lying and witness intimidation. Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was charged with various crimes relating to his lobbying career before working with Trump.
Nunes also told Dobbs that Stone should never have been in Mueller’s crosshairs.
“So, what the hell did they do for two years?” Nunes said.
“They set up an obstruction of justice trap, and they went after a whole bunch of people that now got sentenced. Some already served their time, and I think all of this has to come into question now,” the congressman added.
I hope Durham’s investigation doesn’t keep us waiting for too much longer because all of this really needs be exposed before Trump’s election.
