After weeks of unhinged liberals calling for Devin Nunes to step down from the bogus Trump-Russia investigation, today they got their wish. Sadly for them, it looks like they may have bitten off more than they could chew because when Nunes announced his replacement, it’s none other than Trey Gowdy!
BOOM! How’s that for out of the frying pan and into the fire?
Devin Nunes released this statement earlier today:
“Several left-wing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics,” Nunes said in a statement Thursday. “The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.”
Nunes added: “Despite the baselessness of the charges, I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter. I will continue to fulfill all my other responsibilities as Committee Chairman, and I am requesting to speak to the Ethics Committee at the earliest possible opportunity in order to expedite the dismissal of these false claims.”
Naturally, Liberals are less than thrilled that they now have to float this Russia story past the committee with Trey Gowdy at the helm. On MSNBC today, liberal hack Zerlina Maxwell, Hillary Clinton’s director of progressive media (WTH?), said:
“The Benghazi guy,” Maxwell, who previously served as Hillary Clinton’s director of progressive media, incredulously responded to Tate. “The Benghazi guy is taking over, so that’s not necessarily something that Democrats will appreciate that much.”
No, they won’t! Of course they never really appreciated anyone who dared to stray from their party line. Thank Gowdy’s there to back up Nunes and get results!
