Looks like another horrible week for Team Trumpster Fire. Vindicating calls for Rep. Devin Nunes to recuse himself from the investigation into his cohorts, the not-so-failing New York Times is reporting the identities of two White House staffers responsible for sharing the reports with Nunes that became the subject of the "incidental collection" press conference.

2 White House Officials Helped Give Nunes Intelligence Reports


WASHINGTON — A pair of White House officials helped provide Representative Devin Nunes of California, a Republican and the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, with the intelligence reports that showed that President Trump and his associates were incidentally swept up in foreign surveillance by American spy agencies.

The revelation on Thursday that White House officials disclosed the reports, which Mr. Nunes then discussed with Mr. Trump, is likely to fuel criticism that the intelligence chairman has been too eager to do the bidding of the Trump administration while his committee is supposed to be conducting an independent investigation of Russia’s meddling in the presidential election.

It is the latest twist of a bizarre Washington drama that began after dark on March 21, when Mr. Nunes got a call from a person he has described only as a source. The call came as he was riding across town in an Uber car, and he quickly diverted to the White House. The next day, Mr. Nunes gave a hastily arranged news conference before going to brief Mr. Trump on what he had learned the night before from — as it turns out — White House officials.


Is anyone believing seriously still believing this bull#? Nunes had his chance to step away and if Paul Ryan has one ounce of integrity, one honest bone in his body, it's time for him to remove Nunes.

Let's recap here:

Saturday, March 4th:

* President Trump, eager to deflect attention elsewhere makes a dubious claim about wiretapping on Twitter.


Wednesday, March 15th:

* Nunes says he doesn't believe Trump's claims about wiretapping but adds:


"I remain even more concerned about … the incidental collection of Americans that were possibly tied to the Trump campaign that could have been leaked, similar to Gen. Flynn, and secondly, the unmasking of Americans' names, potentially for political purposes," Nunes said. "We're continuing to ask more about that."



Monday, March 20th:

* Hearings begin, second question from Nunes? Oh, but of course:


Were the communications of officials or associates of any campaign subject to any kind of improper surveillance? The Intelligence Community has extremely strict procedures for handling information pertaining to any U.S. citizens who are subject even to incidental surveillance, and this Committee wants to ensure all surveillance activities have followed all relevant laws, rules, and regulations. Let me be clear: we know there was not a wiretap on Trump Tower. However, it’s still possible that other surveillance activities were used against President Trump and his associates.


* Comey and Rogers testimony dismiss Trump's wiretapping bs.


Tuesday, March 21st:

* As revealed by the Daily Beast — three days later:


Rep. Devin Nunes was traveling with a senior committee staffer in an Uber on Tuesday evening when he received a communication on his phone, three committee officials and a former national security official with ties to the committee told The Daily Beast. After the message, Nunes left the car abruptly, leaving his own staffer in the dark about his whereabouts.



Wednesday, March 22nd:

* Without a word to his fellow committee members, sparking calls for his removal, Nunes gives a hasty press conference with vague insinuations about reports that he's seen that support "incidental collection" — clearly designed to give Trump supporters and the right-wing media something else to talk about:


Nunes held a brief press conference Wednesday afternoon saying that “on numerous occasions the Intelligence Community incidentally collected information about U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition.” But Nunes’s vague statements raised a host of questions, and his decision to announce them publicly and then go to the White House to brief President Trump, having not informed Democrats on the committee about his new findings, cast a pall of politics over the proceedings.


* About half an hour after the start of Nunes conference, in an interview with Time's Michael Scherer:


Yeah well if you’d look at, in fact I’ll give you the front page story, and just today I heard, just a little while ago, that Devin Nunes had a news conference, did you hear about this, where they have a lot of information on tapping. Did you hear about that?


Nothing fishy about that. Right?

* Less than 45 minutes after the Nunes conference, Sean Spicer mentions the claim at his own press briefing.

* Nunes went to the White House to allegedly brief the President before taking questions outside at 3pm. (speed briefing? Not very likely imo.)



Thursday, March 23rd:

* Sean spicer deflected:


“I don't know what he actually briefed the president on, but I don't know why he would come up to brief the president on something that we gave him,” Spicer said.

“That doesn't really seem to make a ton of sense,” he added. “I'm not aware of it, but it doesn't really past the smell test.”


* Nunes briefed Schiff and other committee members and apologized for briefing the White House first.

* Daily Beast published story about Nunes disappearing after taking call in Uber ride with staffer. (to go to the White House to be shown reports.)

Friday, March 24th:

* Nunes went for the stall and abruptly canceled the open hearings with Clapper, Brennan and Yates. Schiff accuses him of trying to choke off public info.


Monday, March 27th:

* In an interview with Bloomberg reporter Eli Lake, Nunes lied, saying that his source was not a White House staffer and was an intelligence official.


"We don't have networked access to these kinds of reports in Congress," Nunes said. He added that his source was not a White House staffer and was an intelligence official.


* The story breaks that Nunes had gone to the White House to view reports. Bull# story about proximity to SCIF foisted.

* Nunes spox lied to LA Times:


Nunes and his spokesman said he went to the White House to meet his source because there was a facility there for reviewing classified information. “Chairman Nunes met with his source at the White House grounds in order to have proximity to a secure location where he could view the information provided by the source,” the spokesman, Jack Langer, said.

A similar facility exists on Capitol Hill, however, which Nunes would routinely have access to.

Langer said the source of Nunes’ information was not a White House staff member.


* Nunes lied to Wolf Blitzer:


NUNES: No. And in fact, I'm quite sure that people in the West Wing had no idea I was there.


* Sean Spicer repeated the lie at the press briefing:


“He has said, from my understanding on the record, that he did not meet with White House staff,” Spicer said at another point.



Tuesday March 28th:

* In what should now be understood as an obvious stall tactic, Nunes abruptly canceled the closed door hearings that would have included AG Yates.

* WaPo accused Nunes of canceling hearings to block Yates from testifying at White House's behest. The administration denied the claims.


Wednesday, March 29th:

* During his daily press briefing, poor Sean Spicer inadvertently let slip that two individuals had feeding Nunes info:


But when the information that is occurring now, which is two individuals who were properly cleared — or three, or whoever [Nunes] met with, I don’t know — that they are sharing stuff that is entirely legal with the appropriate clearances — and then there is an obsession on the process.



That should just about catch us up. Let's face it folks, Nunes has been coordinating with the White House all along and they're all lying about it. All of them. More shady behavior covered up with a bunch of bull#.

If there's nothing to the suspicions, then why all the shady shenanigans? Why all the lying? When do we starting calling this what it is?

A COVER UP.

Wow a hit piece article written right after the Awan brothers fled to Pakistan and amazingly bypassed the no fly list the fbi controls. How is this information confirmed or is it just more anonymous sources to fuel the dumpster fire of a political party we call the left

Lol this just in about the awan brothers

Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.

Wow some of the same people who are accusing trump of russian collusion what are the chances lol

Who cares who gave him the documents. Are the documents true, did Obama's administration do this?

These documents were created before Trump even got into the White house. So, someone in the White house can't give evidence of wrongdoing to protect themselves from lies being spread?

The assertions by the Democratic party and Democrats are insane, does any evidence supplied have to be considered acceptable to them before it can be used?

This sets presidence if it is allowed, a criminal will tel the Judge that only evidence he approves can be used to convict him of a crime. No evidence he does not approve of is relevant. There were no laws broken by Numes viewing evidence at the white house, that is acceptable evidence no matter who informed him of it.

The Democratic party seems to be insane, maybe a law should be passed that allows the police to have people in politics and media investigated if they spread fake news that interferes with our governments functions.

Don't forget the family money Nunes has tied up in the winery that needs the Russian sanctions lifted.
That & he was at a few "special" meetings with Flynn.

Have you checked out the Palmer Report yet?

Hey Anti do a piece on Pence, he was Manafort's dark horse choice, so up to his well coiffed theocratic skull in all this.

I was just thinking that if Trump and Pence are impeached together, the presidency may not go to Paul Ryan either whereas, clearly, Ryan should be barring Nunes from the investigation. Then I realized that leaves us with !@#$%^& Orin Hatch. Then again at least he's American slime vs Russian slime.

ETA: I was thinking Orin Hatch was someone else... I can deal with Orin Hatch.

So what's the problem? Nunes is a Republican. Thanks to Democrats, the Republicans are IN CHARGE of the House, Senate, and the White House.

They are proving to be a right load of cowboys.

That's what you get when you vote for arrogant, rude amateurs who only know how to make money for themselves, not for you.

Don't go entertaining any big notions that they are going to make America great again. More like they are going to make America broke again, lol, broke and bankrupt.

It's fun watching people trapped in a loop, falling for the same gag every four years from men who only want to keep it the same as it's always been because that is how they stay rich and keep you very very very poor.

Same as it ever was:



A fool deserves his delusion. You may say to yourself, "My God, what have I done?"

This sounds like childish games that would only prolong the inevitable. From what I read, this whole supposed charade was only to keep Sally Yates from testifying?

The risk doesn't seem worth the reward.

If not, then why. Why the cloak and dagger to push out the information through Nunes and not just publish it? Does Nunes have more credibility than the White House?
