Nunes to Look for Info on Three Possible “Setups” in Final Mueller Report
Ranking House Intelligence Committee member Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) said he will be looking for information on “some type of setup” on three subjects in the final Mueller report set to be released tomorrow.
Speaking to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham last night, Nunes said “What I’m going to be looking for is there’s three specific areas where I think there was some type of setup involved.”
The three subjects he cited were General Michael Flynn, Maltese academic, Joseph Mifsud, and the infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting:
- “The first is involved with Gen. Flynn,” Nunes said. “Gen. Flynn was supposedly entrapped, was meeting with a Russian woman. I want to know what really happened there because we are just now finding out about this and we need a lot more information on what really was general Flynn doing. It’s a big deal if somebody within our intelligence agencies were accusing a three star general of having some type of Russian fling. It’s serious stuff. I want to get to the bottom of that.”
- “The second big question is Joseph Mifsud,” Nunes continued. “Joseph Mifsud is how this whole investigation started. Mueller describes him as some type of Russian asset of some kind. If Joseph Mifsud was a Russian asset, we’ve got big problems with our British and Italian allies because he seems to be pictured with every British and Italian person that we know of. That is something that we also want to know about. And Mifsud was the guy who set up Papadopoulos.”
- “The third issue I want to know about is this infamous Trump Tower meeting. When you hear the Democrats talk about that there’s ‘evidence in plain sight,’ the Russians that are involved in the infamous Trump Tower meeting in New York, I call them the Fusion GPS Russians,” Nunes said. “Fusion GPS was the company that was working for the Clinton campaign and the Democrats and somehow Glenn Simpson meets with them before and after and he’s actually, these are Russians he’s doing work for? I mean come on. If Mueller can’t get to the bottom of this and answer this for the American people, I don’t know what the report was really worth.”
