It would seem that Nunes fits the definition of toady.

It would seem that Gowdy knows that, even though he did not explicitly state it.


I havn't looked into the timing, however I also know the
DNC had already wiped or destroyed the servers by the
time the FBI asked for them. So what was Nunes supposed
to subpoena? Also there was no investigation he was involved
with, so ....? Right?

He wasn't involved with the investigation into Russian interference in the election? Isn't he the head of the house intelligence commitee?

Chairman Nunes and Ranking Member Schiff have approved the Scope of Investigation for the inquiry by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence into the Russian active measures campaign targeting the 2016 U.S. election.

tipton.house.gov...

Seems the allegations of Russians stealing DNC emails and their release through Wikileaks would be sort of important.

The DNC hacking took place in June and July 2016, according to Wikipedia.

As head of The House Intel Committee, Nunes had no authority at the time
because there was no official investigation yet, except by the FBI.

Right?

Say what? Are you saying that the committee has no authority to initiate an investigation?

The details, only in passing. But I do know the appointment was for a criminal investigation (leaking). Here's the letter.

Compare that with the appointment of mueller. Here's the letter. This references comey's testimony in which he said was a counter intelligence investigation. This basically authorizes a fishing expedition in paragraph (c).

That is not what I said.

If you care to look at the timing of events, you
will see your comment is ridiculous.

C'mon now, phage wanted the republicans to launch an investigation into the DNC in the middle of an election year... Would have been great.

Please clarify as to why Nunes' authority to initiate an investigation into Russian interference was limited.

The investigation was, actually, initiated. Are you saying it was illegal?

Read the wiki correctly.


The 2016 Democratic National Committee email leak is a collection of Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails stolen by Russian intelligence agency hackers and subsequently published (leaked) by DCLeaks in June and July 2016[1] and by WikiLeaks on July 22, 2016, during the 2016 Democratic National Convention.


Basic Timeline.


The leak includes emails from seven key DNC staff members, and date from January 2015 to May 2016.


DNC detected the intrustion some time on or before June 10th. Crowdstrike cleaned the DNC laptops and servers in about 2 days.

June 14, 2016 DNC goes public with hack.

CrowdStrike report first published June 15, 2016

The same day June 15, 2016 Guccifer 2.0 took credit for the hack. He first published focuments on June 22, 2016 and through into July.

Wikileaks published their files on July 22, 2016.


On July 25, 2016, the FBI announced that it would investigate the hack.

Yep, how silly....and how the FBI bent over backwards
to let Hillary decide all of her terms, work with her to allow
witnesses to be her lawyers, attorney client privilege,
she decided she did not want to be under oath, she
was allowed to sort though her own emails.

Then she destroyed what she thought was not
relevant after the emails were subpoenaed.

Bleach bit and etc and on and on.

So maybe you can find another taker.

You seem to be conflating the DNC server hacks with Clinton's email server.

Why are you doing that?


And do you think that Nunes broke the law by initiating an investigation into Russian interference in the election. Or was this post an attempt to deflect from that claim?


No, not what I said
But it is what you said. And you have not edited the post in which you said it. Props for that.

No, were just not on the same wavelength.

No, Nunes did not break the law.

No, I am not editing my posts not going
to either and not going to dig up parsnips.

Carry on.

So, did he have the authority? Or not?

When?

March 1, 2017, when this was released:

Chairman Nunes and Ranking Member Schiff have approved the Scope of Investigation for the inquiry by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence into the Russian active measures campaign targeting the 2016 U.S. election. While the detailed, six-page scoping document remains classified, the investigation will seek to answer the following questions:

What Russian cyber activity and other active measures were directed against the United States and its allies?

Did the Russian active measures include links between Russia and individuals associated with political campaigns or any other U.S. Persons?

What was the U.S. Government’s response to these Russian active measures and what do we need to do to protect ourselves and our allies in the future?

What possible leaks of classified information took place related to the Intelligence Community Assessment of these matters?

intelligence.house.gov...

Do you think a subpeona of the DNC would have been beyond the scope of this investigation?

Was an "investigation" into the tapping of Trump's phones by Obama beyond the scope of this investigation? Was that a legitimate investigation?

By that date the DNC servers were ( according to the DNC )
already destroyed...as I have said several times.

So what would be the point?
