The “Russian collusion” narrative peddled by the Democratic party has been dealt yet another decisive blow, this time by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA). During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” with host Chris Wallace, Nunes was unequivocal in stating that he has encountered “no evidence” of Russian collusion as House Intelligence Committee chairman.
“I’ll give you a very simple answer: No,” Nunes replied when asked by Wallace whether he had found any shreds of information linking President Donald Trump’s campaign to Russia. “Up to speed on everything I have up to this morning, no evidence of collusion.”
Later, Nunes blasted members of the Obama administration – including some that have since left their post and others who currently remain – for intentionally leaking damaging information in order to hamper the Trump administration.
“There’s even been stories written about it in numerous newspapers talking about how they said they left breadcrumbs around to hurt the Trump administration,” he said. “Clearly, to leak Michael Flynn’s name talking to the Russian ambassador, that was clearly designed to hurt Gen. Flynn and the president’s national security advisor.”
As for Trump’s allegations that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower, Nunes appeared to debunk the claim on a semantic level but went on to note that other surveillance activities might have been used.
“Was there a physical wiretap of Trump Tower? No, but there never was. And the information we got on Friday continues to lead in that direction,” Nunes explained, later adding: “We have a lot of surveillance activities in this country, and I think the concern that the Trump administration has is, were they actually using surveillance activities to know what they were up to? Because we know that that happened with Gen. Flynn.”
