Rep. Devin Nunes stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on the escalating intelligence crisis sweeping the Department of Justice; saying investigators need to find the truth behind FBI abuse during the 2016 campaign.
“Am I over the target in thinking countries like Italy, and Great Britain, and Australia, maybe were outsourced intelligence gathering by our intelligence people to circumvent American laws?” asked Hannity.
“We don’t know who people were working for… What we still don’t know is when did the Clinton campaign operation -run by Fusion GPS- and the FBI, when did those merge? That’s what I’ve been trying to figure out for a long time,” said Nunes.
Nunes slammed recent revelations earlier this month; labeling James Comey and Andrew McCabe “dirty cops.”
“If America treats our heroes this way, we do not have a Democratic Republic. He needs to fight it, he needs to go after Comey and McCabe for setting him up that way. They abused their power,” said Hannity.
“In the future, if you look up the words ‘Dirty cop’ you will see the pictures of Comey and McCabe. These guys make Hoover look like a saint. It’s absolutely despicable that the head of the FBI would think it’s funny and cute to send over FBI agents to interview the National Security Advisor,” fired-back Nunes.
Comey -who admitted under oath to leaking classified material to a longtime friend- warned weeks ago that any “loose talk” regarding the 2016 election could potentially demoralize FBI agents across the country.
“Investigate whatever you wish about 2016 but don’t forget the people of the FBI must investigate and stop Russian efforts in the 2020 election. What impact will loose talk about ‘spying’ and disgraceful talk about ‘treason’ have on FBI agents and analysts?” posted Comey on social media.
