Devin Nunes contemplates his existence

CNN gives us more details on the month-long trip to Vienna that dim Trump sycophant Devin Nunes and some of his staff took, to, you know, freelance a little graft and corruption for da boss:

A lawyer for an indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani told CNN that his client is willing to tell Congress about meetings the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee had in Vienna last year with a former Ukrainian prosecutor to discuss digging up dirt on Joe Biden.

The attorney, Joseph A. Bondy, represents Lev Parnas, the recently indicted Soviet-born American who worked with Giuliani to push claims of Democratic corruption in Ukraine. Bondy said that Parnas was told directly by the former Ukrainian official that he met last year in Vienna with Rep. Devin Nunes.

“Mr. Parnas learned from former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin that Nunes had met with Shokin in Vienna last December,” said Bondy.

Shokin was ousted from his position in 2016 after pressure from Western leaders, including then-vice president Biden, over concerns that Shokin was not pursuing corruption cases.

We already know the broad outlines of this story, so what makes it new?

Way down the article, things get fun when CNN starts to fact-check their story:

In the Capitol on Nov. 14, as CNN began to ask a question about the trip to Vienna, Nunes interjected and said, “I don’t talk to you in this lifetime or the next lifetime.”

“At any time,” Nunes added. “On any question.”

Asked again on Thursday about his travel to Vienna and his interactions with Shokin and Parnas, Nunes gave a similar response.

“To be perfectly clear, I don’t acknowledge any questions from you in this lifetime or the next lifetime,” Nunes said while leaving the impeachment hearing. “I don’t acknowledge any question from you ever.”

CNN was unable to reach Shokin for comment.

Totally sounds legit.

      Infidel, if I were a betting man, I’d say that House Ethics will be investigating him for being on the impeachment panel when he was an active participant in the story. It’s corrupt in the extreme that he didn’t report it and/or didn’t recuse himself.

    Hello TG. The news I have read said he made these trips on government money and used government services. If true wouldn’t that break laws because he was not doing a government function or mission? Hugs

  3. To be perfectly clear, I don’t acknowledge any questions from you in this lifetime or the next lifetime,

    This is absolutely the expected response from a sane, innocent man.

    It’s as if he’s trying to class-up sticking his fingers in his ears and screaming “LA LA LA LA LA LA LA! I CANT’T HEAR YOU!”

    Was he wearing a monocle and top hat when he said it?

      If he actually believed in “the next lifetime” he’d be a bit more careful about his karma in this one.
      And I think they leave the wearing of the monopoly man outfit to Roger Stone. I could be wrong…
