President Donald Trump recently spoke to top House Intelligence Republican Devin Nunes about replacements for the country’s intelligence chief — the latest sign that Dan Coats’ tenure may be short-lived…
Because of these similar views, some on Capitol Hill and in the intelligence community think Nunes himself could be in the mix for an intelligence post, even if it’s not at ODNI.
“The president would certainly consider Devin Nunes for the director’s position and I eventually see him serving in some capacity in this administration,” said one member of Congress who speaks to Trump frequently. He noted, however, that he sees “all of Devin’s efforts being directed towards a reelection effort in Congress.”
Gee, does the name of that one member of Congress who speaks to Trump frequently rhyme with Nevin Dunes?
Given the lavish tongue-bathing from Nunes and the loyalty oafs (not a typo) that Godfather Stupid prefers, this speculation carries a lot more weight than I care to believe. He’d be confirmed by the GOP Senate in a heartbeat, too, as much as I hate to believe.
*count your blessings, I had a lot of puns to choose from.
