You’re-The-Puppet Chronicles


So what didn’t our know-nothing preznint not know, and when didn’t he stupidly not know it? The investigation into the investigation of how the Russian’s overthrew our democracy is now a low-rent, Plan B from Outer Space-quality spy thriller featuring dunces:

The New Yorker:

The evidence is now clear that the White House and Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, have worked together to halt what was previously billed as a sweeping investigation of Russian interference in last year’s election. “We’ve been frozen,” Jim Himes, a Democratic representative from Connecticut who is a member of the Committee, said.

Politico:

Nunes has come under fierce criticism from Democrats, who have accused him of colluding with the White House to undermine the panel’s probe, which is also examining whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian officials.

But Nunes on Wednesday claimed it was Democrats who were not dedicated to the investigation.

“We’re beginning to figure out who’s actually serious about the investigation because it appears like the Democrats aren’t really serious about this investigation,” he said, as reported by NBC News.

The HuffPo:

When asked how exactly Nunes got into the White House last week, Spicer told reporters on Wednesday that it was “a question for him, not for us.”

Nunes, who has otherwise been tight-lipped about his source, told Bloomberg’s Eli Lake on Monday that his source was an intelligence official, not a White House staffer. Even if that is true, it would have had to have been an intelligence official with cleared White House access (potentially an official on temporary detail with the National Security Council), or Nunes and his source would have had to have been let in by someone else from the White House.

Perhaps Nunes’ most bizarre move thus far has been his refusal to disclose his source’s identity to [Rep. Adam] Schiff, his Democratic counterpart, who is regularly briefed on information in his role as the ranking member of the intelligence committee.

Even some of Nunes’ Republican colleagues are puzzled by his handling of the situation.

“The chairman and ranking member not talking with each other ― that’s bizarre on such an important issue,” one GOP lawmaker said Wednesday. “I just can’t imagine myself and my counterpart, on something this important to the country, having zero communication.”

Nunes’ behavior, the Republican lawmaker continued, is making it appear as though he is “somebody who’s in essence working for the administration.”

Before this thing is over, I’m predicting a Stooges-style pie fight to the finish.

    There appears to be hope in the Senate. Hopefully the Senate will also investigate Nunes.

    This whole incident doesn’t pass the smell test. And it appears that most Republicans have a severe case of anosmia.

    So long as it takes place in the yard at a federal prison I’m OK with that.
