As Democrats and the few Republicans in Congress try to pass legislation protecting FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Devin Nunes (R. CA) is trying to force them out through an impeachment process.
Nunes goal, of course, is firing Rosenstein so that his replacement will fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, thereby prolonging whatever small sense of “saftey” popular vote loser Donald Trump feels in the investigations into his massive, widespread “alleged” corruption.
The only logical reason Nunes could have for this, much like with the release of his fraudulent “Nunes memo” a couple of months ago, is because he’s ankle deep in this corruption himself.
Nunes says if FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decline to hand over the document used to launch the FBI’s probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election, he will lanch impeachment proceedings against them.
“I can tell you that we’re not going to just hold in contempt, we will have a plan to hold in contempt and impeach,” Nunes said on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle.”
Laura Ingraham asked if he was actually serious about impeaching Wray, Nunes said: “Absolutely.”
Nunes appeared furious on Tuesday when the FBI refused to hand over to the intel committee an unredacted version of the document used as justification for law enforcement to launch an investigation into the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia.
Nunes clearly has no place on the House Intelligence Committee, of which is the majority chairman. Of course, only one person can remove him, and that man is taking his ball and going home, clearly giving up on anything important.
Scott Dworkin paints the picture by saying: “Devin Nunes is trying to fire Rod Rosenstein on Trump’s behalf via an impeachment process. Get this lunatic off the Intel Committee. Only one person in the world has the power to do it-he won’t. Because that person is a miserable failure resigning in disgrace”
Dworkin is right. Ryan has a chance to do the right thing, with no political/electoral ramifications due to him not seeking reelection, but he won’t. He’s a massive failure as a leader and should go down as one of Trump’s biggest enablers of corruption, right alongside of Devin Nunes.
