House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Trump’s Rump) joined Bret Baier on “Special Report” on Friday to discuss Republicans’ release of a memo alleging U.S. government surveillance abuses. The crux of Nunes’ argument really was that weirdo blabbermouth Carter Page is an victim of security state run amok.
And after much mewling and bleating concluded thusly:
I don’t believe that somebody like Mr. Page should be a target of the FBI.
Now, why Nunes would decide for his Memo (first of many memos, we are told!) to focus on a savant-less idiot like Carter Page, we can only assume it must be some sort of professional courtesy.
We pick up the thread the very next day with Time magazine:
“The letter, dated Aug. 25, 2013, was sent by Page to an academic press during a dispute over edits to an unpublished manuscript he had submitted for publication, according to an editor who worked with Page.”
“Over the past half year, I have had the privilege to serve as an informal advisor to the staff of the Kremlin in preparation for their Presidency of the G-20 Summit next month, where energy issues will be a prominent point on the agenda,” the letter reads.
Sounds totally like the kinda guy that should not be under investigation. Once again, America’s comedy writers thanks Devin Nunes. The SNL Writers Room probably has a shrine up to him this week.
Only guessing of course.
