Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was reported to be visibly shaking when a reporter attempted to ask him questions about his connections to the Ukraine scandal which has President Donald Trump on the verge of impeachment.
Video taken by the Intercept shows Lee Fang attempting to ask Nunes about his contacts with both Lev Parnas and Rudy Giuliani – two people key to President Donald Trump’s apparent efforts to pressure Ukraine for personal political benefit. Call records obtained by House Democrats indicate Nunes was in contact with both Parnas and Giuliani throughout the Ukraine efforts that have resulted in potential impeachment for Trump.

When confronted with queries about his Ukraine connections, the hand of the California congressman trembled visibly as he grabbed his cell phone and began recording the reporters who were asking questions:
“After The Intercept approached Nunes about his contacts with Parnas and whether he was involved with the effort to pressure the Ukrainian government, the California lawmaker sped off, walking through the Palace Hotel to the hotel’s lounge. Moments later, he returned with a cell phone, pointed at this reporter. He remained quiet while asked again about his calls. Nunes then conferred with a U.S. Capitol Police officer stationed at the event, who had The Intercept removed from the hotel.”
Nunes later claimed he had been stalked, posting this on Twitter:

It appears that Nunes is afraid of his own shadow. And he probably should be since he’s potentially facing an investigation by the House Ethics Committee, an uncertain reelection bid in 2020, and even criminal charges for attempting to interfere in the next presidential election.
Tick, tock, Devin! Karma is coming for you.
