It’s time for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes to recuse himself from this investigation. He knows that. He’s compromised himself too much to be even remotely impartial, if that was ever going to happen. Nunes was part of President Pee Pee’s transition team, so the idea that he could lead an investigation into whether the president lied about being wiretapped was a stretch. But everyone, including Democrats, was willing to go with it.
Then he went missing and popped up at a press conference where he not only revealed that he’d seen information from a secret source but also alluded to the president’s original claims that he had, in fact, been wiretapped by the Obama administration. And get this: He didn’t even tell the rest of the folks on the committee what he’d found before he went live. This week, news broke that when Nunes was missing; turns out he was on White House grounds.
