Devin Nunes sending criminal referrals to DOJ over FISA abuses during 2016 campaign

March 27, 2019

  After two years of investigations into the 2016 election we learned that not only did Donald Trump not conspire with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton but also that there is a good chance that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the intelligence community might have been colluding in an attempt to stop Donald Trump from becoming President.

  From misleading FISA courts, to wiretapping Trump Tower, to having a spy infiltrate the campaign, and to creating a false dossier the list of potential crimes is quite exhaustive. 

  Now that Robert Mueller’s investigation is over Devin Nunes has decided it is time to “go on the offensive” and is now sending a criminal recommendation to the Department of Justice related to the “spygate” fiasco. Here is more:

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.”

“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,” he said.

In addition, Nunes plans to interview about 50 people—some who have never been called before Congress—who were involved or know about the pushing of the “pee dossier” within various U.S. government agencies, and its use to get a surveillance warrant on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“It all stems from the fact that we know that this investigation started long before the end of July,” he said. “We are quite confident that this investigation started long before they told us that it did.”

He said it reaches all the way to the Obama White House, though it is not yet clear how involved former President Barack Obama was.

“Look, there’s big problems — big problems that the public needs to know about. Maximum transparency is the best thing here,” he said.

  It looks like this could be pretty extensive before all is said and done although he is being pretty mum about the details right now. It is going to be interesting to see what William Barr does with this; will he have the guts to move forward or will he by another disappointment like Jeff Sessions?

  For his part Devin Nunes does not believe this can be ignored so we will see, but does anybody else find it interesting that since the Mueller reported came out Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have been silent? Especially Hillary Clinton,  you would think she would have something to say…
