House Ethics Committee Just Began Investigation Into Nunes Over Trump-Russia Cover-Up

The real reason for House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) abrupt recusal from the investigation into President Trump’s ties to Russia appears to be an impending investigation into Nunes himself.

The House Ethics Committee has announced they are launching a probe into Nunes over his very public mishandling of classified information.

A few weeks ago, Nunes held a press conference to announce that “I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, I guess, at least monitored. It looks to me like it was all legally collected, but it was essentially a lot of information on the president-elect and his transition team and what they were doing.”

While Nunes was attempting to give credence to President Trump’s Brietbart-inspired conspiracy theory that President Obama was illegally wiretapping Trump Tower, he really had just publicly revealed that Trump campaign officials had been communicating with the targets of FISA court-approved wiretaps or other surveillance methods placed on foreign agents by US intelligence services.

It goes without saying those wiretaps are highly classified and Nunes may have just alerted the wiretap targets that their communications were being monitored.

“In my humble opinion, yes, Nunes disclosed classified information that day. The existence or non-existence of a FISA warrant is a classified fact. The details from the warrant, namely who got caught up in incidental collection, is a classified fact” said classification lawyer Bradley Moss to the Daily Beast.

Nunes’ clumsy attempt to stir up a fake controversy to distract the public from the Russia investigation drew loud criticism from both sides of the aisle, and it appears the ethics investigation was the excuse both parties needed to get rid of Nunes once and for all.

Nunes embarrassed himself and his party in his shameful determination to abandon his constitutional duty to provide oversight of the executive and instead carry out Trump’s orders and manufacture a fake scandal to distract the public from Trump’s treason, and now he can kiss his career goodbye as even his fellow Republicans wash their hands of him.

The silence from the Republican Party is an outrageous hypocrisy. They launched investigation after investigation at Hillary Clinton over the possibility she might have accidentally revealed classified information through her private email server, called her traitor, and demanded her execution, even though she was cleared of all wrongdoing.

Nunes openly mishandled classified information in an attempt to shield President Trump from an investigation into his potentially treasonous collusion with agents of a hostile foreign power to subvert our democratic system, yet we hear not a peep from those on the right.
