Sunday on FNC's "Sunday Morning Futures," Rep. Devin Nunes discussed former FBI director James Comey's Congressional testimony this week
and suggests that problems in the intelligence community might be beyond oversight:
BARTIROMO: So, first, evaluate the Jim Comey testimony that we saw in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee this past week.
NUNES: Well, you know, on certain days, James Comey has an intelligence level higher than Einstein. He seems to know everything. He takes immaculate notes. He even takes those classified notes home and shares them with a lawyer. Somehow, those notes end up in The New York Times.
But then, other times, like you would think when you have actually opened an investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia, he seems to have amnesia. He's forgotten everything.
And, look, I will just make this point. We asked him specifically and all the other dirty cops at DOJ and FBI and the intelligence agencies, in January of early 2017, where did this dirt come from? None of them seem to know the answer.
And you know what, Maria? Every damn person in that room knew the answer, except for the Republicans. That's the truth...
There was plenty of circumstantial evidence to know this, Maria, that this -- that the Clinton campaign had created all of this because they knew the 33,000 e-mails were out there somewhere.
They knew that Jason Chaffetz and House Republicans were trying to find those e-mails. So, what did they do? They created a sick fantasy, OK? This was the Clinton campaign. I want you to remember this. The Clinton campaign created this sick fantasy.
Then they went out and hired avatars to do it. So, they hired a former British spy named Steele, who did the Steele dossiers. Then they hired a suspected Russian spy, OK, so that they could give it a veneer of being a Russian. So, imagine that.
Now you have the Democrats hiring Russian spies, getting $3.5 million from Moscow, and nobody in the media seems to give a damn about it.
And so I think what Leader McCarthy said is exactly right. Every Republican senator and member of Congress should be saying, this is over. We want every damn bit of evidence that every intelligence agency has, or it's maybe time to shut those agencies down, because, at the end of the day our liberties are more important than anything else we have in this country.
And they have been stampeded over by these dirty cops and the Democratic Party, and the media, who fails to report on it.
