Dimwitted Rep. Devin Nunes is such an obvious crook: Nunes aide communicated with Parnas about Ukraine campaign, messages show
“House Democrats released new documents Friday evening showing extensive contact between an associate of President Trump’s personal attorney and an aide to the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee regarding the effort to obtain material from Ukrainian prosecutors that would be damaging to former vice president Joe Biden.
“The text messages between Lev Parnas, who functioned as Rudolph W. Giuliani’s emissary to Ukrainian officials, and Derek Harvey, an aide to Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, indicate Nunes’s office was aware of the operation at the heart of impeachment proceedings against the president — and sought to use the information Parnas was gathering.
“The newly released texts show that Parnas was working last spring to set up calls for Harvey with the Ukrainian prosecutors who were feeding Giuliani information about Biden. … The messages also show that Harvey met with Parnas and Giuliani at the Trump hotel in Washington. Harvey and a spokesman for Nunes did not immediately respond to requests for comment.”

As you all know, Nunes claims that he doesn’t remember ever meeting Lev Parnas, even though phone records released in the Impeachment Evidence shows several back-and-forth phone calls, and now this. So he was part of the Pantheon of Dunces that was trying to strong-arm Ukraine into announcing an investigation of the Bidens and later was defending Prznint Stupid for strong-arming Ukraine.
I’m only a sonofalawyer, but that seems to me to make him an accomplice. He needs to be removed from office.
And on another Nunes Note, our hero Ted Lieu won the innernets last night:
