Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has said and done some incredibly absurd things over the years, but what he said Sunday about former President Barack Obama may be the dumbest thing that has ever come from his mouth.
During an appearance on Fox Business, Nunes told host Maria Bartiromo that Obama is directing everything President-Elect Joe Biden is doing:
“I would just point out to your viewers that President Obama is the only president that I know that only moved about a mile from the White House, set up shop, has all of his people there, most of his people were promoting Kamala Harris to run before she bombed out, wasting millions of dollars, hundreds of millions of dollars, and then they propped up Joe Biden. So it’s not just about how this is the first president that oversaw using a political campaign, using the FBI and DOJ to open an investigation into your rival campaign. That’s as big of a fraud as you get in the history of the United States of America, so he’s not giving up power.”
Actually, the FBI and DOJ began an investigation into how Russia was interfering in American elections, and Obama had nothing to do with that. As it turns out, Russia did indeed attack the 2016 election, and the investigations help us better prepare for future actions by foreign nations into our electoral process.
But Nunes was far from finished spinning his wild conspiracy theory, adding:
“He investigated his opposing party. He allowed it to happen if he was so high and mighty and above dashboard he should have told Clinton, Comey, Mccabe, Brennan, all of them, no we’re not doing this. You have no evidence that Trump is some type of Russian agent. Stop it. He didn’t do it and here, we’re left with this aftermath of four years of this nonsense and now we’re sitting waiting for Durham to complete this investigation. I think people are getting not only very frustrated but also, there’s a growing concern that Durham is not going to come out with anything and then Biden and Obama are going to be back in and they’re going to shut this investigation off, so, I’ve been very clear about this.”
Wow! Devin needs to loosen the straps on his tinfoil hat; they’re obstructing the blood flow to his skull.
Nunes finished with a call for Trump to appoint a special counsel:
“Every day that ticks by it’s going to become an absolute necessity that a special counsel is appointed on the way out. Now that doesn’t mean that Biden wouldn’t fire the special counsel but at least you’d have a special counsel office setup, with money, so that this investigation can continue because I’m not seeing indictments that I should be seeing when you take into the account that I’ve made 14 criminal referrals involving dozens and dozens of people.”

Republicans like Devin Nunes cannot get over the fact that Trump is a failed, one-term president who was also impeached. They still think Donald is going to be relevant after he leaves office. But he won’t be, and all the squawking in the world won’t change that simple fact.
