Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA)
Rep. Devin Nunes released a statement Saturday after the New York Times revealed the FBI opened up a counterintel investigation into Trump shortly after the President fired Comey.
According to the New York Times, the investigation into whether Trump was a Russian agent was then handed over to Robert Mueller upon his appointment on May 17th, 2017, about one week after the President fired Comey.
The New York Times admitted in their report that there is no evidence that the Trump campaign EVER had any contact with Russian government officials. The investigation was launched based on unverified rumors.
Investigative journalist of the Washington Examiner, Byron York posted Nunes’ statement ripping the corrupt FBI:
“This is yet more evidence that FBI leaders actually had no real evidence against the Trump team. Instead, they were simply trying to undermine a president they didn’t like and avenge Comey’s firing. By relying on the Steele dossier–a fraudulent document funded by Democrats based on Russian sources–FBI leaders were either complicit or too oblivious to notice they were being used in a disinformation operation by the Democratic party and Russian operatives.”

Congressman Nunes spearheaded the investigation into Russiagate when he was the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
Nunes came under fierce attacks from the Democrats (and traitor Paul Ryan) after he informed President Trump that Obama unmasked and surveilled members of his 2016 presidential campaign.
Congressman Nunes has been right the whole time about the illegal unmasking, surveillance and FISA abuses.
It is time for President Trump to declassify the Carter Page FISA docs and clean house.
