Nunes SLAMS “Dirty Cops” Comey, McCabe

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) slammed former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as “dirty cops” last night on Fox News’ Hannity.

Nunes’ comments came after Hannity played a clip of Comey’s December interview with MSNBC anchor Nicole Wallace where he bragged about sending over FBI agents to interview Lt. General Michael Flynn at the White House when the administration was unprepared, ultimately setting up a perjury trap.

“What I would say this, Sean is in the future when you look up the word ‘dirty cop,’ if you have a fair and free internet, you will see the pictures of Comey and McCabe,” Nunes said.

“These guys make [J. Edgar] Hoover look like a saint. I had actually had never seen that clip you just played, but that’s absolutely despicable with the head of the FBI would think it’s funny and cute to send over these FBI agents to interview the national security advisor for the president of the United States and walk out and say, ‘We don’t think the guy is lying,’ but instead, what do you do? You double down,” the Congressman continued.

He concluded, “Closing with this — let’s not forget. The biggest leak of all of the leaks was the leak of General Flynn, the incoming national security advisor for the president of the United States, talking to the Russian ambassador.”

Nunes: Strzok/Page “Insurance Policy” Referred to Obtaining FISA Warrant

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) claims that the infamous “insurance policy” text message between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page referred to their ability to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.

The August 2016 text message from Strzok to Page stated, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Nunes said, “We believe that ‘insurance policy’ is not just about investigating the Trump campaign. We believe it’s to ensure that they were able to get the FISA warrant on Carter Page so they could go in and look at the emails in the campaign.”

Nunes also told Hannity that the FBI was aware of the problems pertaining to the reliability of the infamous Steele dossier and knew it was opposition research for the Clinton campaign.

“These really were the perverted fantasies of [Fusion GPS Founder] Glenn Simpson working with the Clinton campaign to say ‘What can we draw up here that we can spread out lies to the American people, that we can feed into the FBI and – lo and behold – let’s get an investigation going into the Trump campaign.’ That’s really what happened here,” Nunes said.

In July of 2018, Page explained to lawmakers in her closed-door testimony that the “insurance policy” referred to the fact that the FBI’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion would become more significant if he were to be elected president.

“If he is not elected, then, to the extent that the Russians were colluding with members of his team, we’re still going to investigate that even without him being President, because any time the Russians do anything with a US person, we care, and it’s very serious to us,” Page said.
“But if he becomes President, that totally changes the game because now he is the President of the United States,” she continued. “He’s going to immediately start receiving classified briefings. He’s going to be exposed to the most sensitive secrets imaginable. And if there is somebody on his team who wittingly or unwittingly is working with the Russians, that is super serious.”

Nunes Demands CIA, NSA, FBI, DOJ Provide Info on Mysterious Mifsud

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) is requesting documents from the CIA, NSA, FBI and DOJ pertaining to the mysterious Maltese professor who told Trump campaign volunteer George Papadopoulos that the Russians had thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Nunes sent a letter to the government agencies on Friday evening where he requested “copies of all the information in your departments’ and agencies’ possession related to Joseph Mifsud, including emails, all relevant reports and records of his contact with any elements of the U.S. government.”

He told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that he is “trying to get to the bottom of Mifsud” since he is the alleged catalyst for the entire Trump-Russia investigation.

“Well, we’re trying to get to the bottom of Mifsud, so as we talked about it on the last segment this guy originates the investigation. We know that as the Mueller team wrote this Mueller dossier, they used a lot of these news stories that sometimes were generated by leaks from the FBI. Now I don’t think the American people expect 20 DOJ lawyers and 40 FBI agents to write a 450-page report that’s built off of news stories that in many cases they generated,” he said.

He continued, “I particularly have a problem with this with one of the stories is because they pick a news story and then they cherry-pick from it, so they use it partly to describe where Mifsud worked, but then they fail to say in that same story, that they have given support to by using it in the Mueller dossier, they cherry-pick it and they don’t use that Mifsud was described as a ‘western intelligence asset.'”

Nunes went on to describe how Mifsud worked at Link Campus, a university in Malta, and said the FBI was at the school doing training all the time.

“So how is it that we spend 30+ million dollars on [the Mueller investigation], as taxpayers, and they can’t even tell us who Joseph Mifsud is?” the congressman asked.

Nunes then said he believes Mifsud has ties to the U.S. State Department and that he was invited to the U..S Capitol in 2017.

“And remember, why is Mifsud so important?” Nunes asked. “Because Mueller, the Mueller dossier team, they essentially make this guy out to be a Russian asset under the control of Putin, said that he has ties to these Russians. Sound familiar? ”

“So, this is the origination of this investigation and it seems like Mifsud has an awful lot of ties to U.S., British, and Italian intelligence services,” he continued.
