To what Is Devil Nunes loyal?
The one who is better known as Devin Nunes (R-Calif.)
Based on his stonewalling of investigations into Russia’s role, and his frantic attempts to divert the focus of the investigation away from Russia and away from Trump’s campaign, and toward the patriots who alerted the country, and his secret nightime trip to confer with the White House, it appears that Devin Nunes’ loyalties, in their order of importance to him, are
- First, Devin Nunes himself, followed – possibly closely – by his family.
- Second, Trump, followed – possibly closely – by the Republican Party in its present grotesquely deformed version.
- Third, possibly the United States, possibly including the district that he supposedly represents.
Given that order of priorities, it is not fitting that Nunes should be a member of the House Intelligence Committee, much less that he should chair it.
Nunes was in Trump’s transition team. Yet he claims that there is no conflict of interest for him to lead the investigation of contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russia.
The conflict of interest is clear. Nunes cannot be objective about this issue.
In attempting to deflect attention away from the real danger – Putin’s mafia – Devin Nunes betrayed his country.
He doesn’t belong in Congress.
For his future, his best career option is to apply to become a caddy at one of Trump’s golf courses.
