One of the more vocal critics of the Mueller Russia probe has been Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).
When Republicans still controlled the House, Nunes was Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, where he led his own investigation into the allegations of collusion with Russia.
After the Mueller probe concluded and it was revealed that Mueller found no evidence of any collusion between President Donald Trump, his campaign and Russia, Nunes vowed to get to the bottom of who was behind the probe in the first place.
In a recent interview, Nunes stated that Mueller knew there was no evidence of collusion with Russia from day one.
Washington Examiner – Devin Nunes: Mueller knew there was no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion on day one – Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., went further than Attorney General William Barr to answer the question of when special counsel Robert Mueller knew there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
In an interview that aired Friday on Fox News, Barr said he “couldn’t say.”
Appearing after Barr, Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, was not so hesitant.
“Bob Mueller knew the day that he walked in the door there was no evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Russians,” Nunes said, referring to the findings of the FBI’s counterintelligence that began in the summer of 2016. Mueller was appointed to lead the investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election in May 2017, eight days after President Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey…
If what Nunes says about Mueller knowing from day one that there was no evidence of collusion, that means that Mueller wasted about $26 million of taxpayer money on what President Trump appropriately referred to as a witch hunt.
Additionally, that means that Mueller helped the Democrats keep America hostage for almost 2 years for absolutely nothing.
One still has to wonder what is the overwhelming evidence of collusion with Russia that Rep. Adam Schiff continues to claim he has???
