Republican House Rep. Devin Nunes of California made a startling statement on Fox Nation’s “Witch Hunt.” As ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence said criminal referrals are coming for members of ex-special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
“We’re looking at doing criminal referrals on the Mueller team, the Mueller dossier team, the Mueller witch hunt, whatever you want to call it. That’s where we are now in our investigation,” Rep. Nunes told.
Plus he added, “We’re doing a large criminal referral on the Mueller dossier team that put together a fraudulent report — that knew there was no collusion the day that Mueller walked in the door. They set an obstruction of justice trap. There’s no doubt in my mind that we will make a conspiracy referral there.”
And argued the lead prosecutor on Lt. Gen Mike FLynn’s case must be investigated. “That attorney had to know those documents existed, had to know they were working with a falsified 302 — that’s a very simple criminal referral.”
As he announced, “We’ll also be making an obstruction of justice criminal referral because we know that the House of Representatives… had multiple requests, multiple subpoenas that were out there that effectively were never answered, even though they claim they answered them. Well, now what we learned is that they lied and misled Congress by omission.”
Nunes also expressed, “They thought it was cute to just not give us things, not tell us things and say that they met the requirements. Well, now that these documents are turning up, you know, who was guiding the redactions that were done? Who was instructing things to remain classified?”
Then questioned, “Was that the leadership of DOJ and the FBI communicating with Mueller? And was that Mueller making that call or was that the senior leadership? Look, that’s not for us to determine. That’s for a U.S. attorney to determine who was lying. I want to see all of them held accountable for this.”
So much for the bipartisan spirit.
