Something really big must be coming

Is Devin Nunes Obstructing Justice?

More B.S. from King Bullshit:

House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) sent Attorney General Jeff Sessions a letter on Thursday accusing the FBI of breaking the law when acquiring surveillance warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

In the letter, which was obtained by Fox News, Nunes claims the bureau violated the Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide by obtaining warrants for Page on the alleged base of an unverified dossier that purports as evidence of ties between Donald Trump and the Kremlin and other Russian individuals.

The letter to Sessions takes the allegations outline in the House Intelligence Committee memo declassified by the president in January that laid the basis for the claim that the FBI used the so-called “golden showers dossier” to obtain Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants against Page. Page, however, had been under FISA surveillance since 2014, when the FBI became suspicious of his ties to Russian entities.

Sessions on Tuesday announced an internal investigation into the claim that anti-Trump bias is widespread within the Justice Department. On Wednesday, Trump called his AG “disgraceful” on Twitter for not investigating President Barack Obama, only to be rebuked by Sessions, who said he and the DOJ would “continue to do its work in a fair and impartial manner according to the law and the Constitution.”

What are the Repugs trying to hide?

WTF?

In a sign of increasing partisan hostilities, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee plan to construct a wall – a physical partition – separating Republican and Democratic staff members in the committee’s secure spaces, according to multiple committee sources. It’s expected to happen this spring.

For now, some Republican committee members deny knowing anything about it, while strongly suggesting the division is the brainchild of the committee’s chairman, Devin Nunes, R-California.

“I’m not part of that decision,” said Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas. “You’ve got to talk to Devin. I don’t know what they’re trying to do one way or the other.”

“I swear to God I didn’t know that,” said Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Florida, when asked about the plan. While acknowledging a wall might not be constructive for the committee’s work, he said, “The level of trust and the level of everything down there is – it’s poison. It’s absolute poison down there.”

Rooney said one reason for the tension is an erosion of trust, exacerbated by an ongoing ethics investigation into the “entire Republican staff,” including “the woman up front that answers the phone” for alleged leaks. He later added that the matter was being handled by the Office of Congressional Ethics.

Bipartisanship, he said, “is gone. It’s gone from that committee.”

“We have heard reports that the chairman may seek to erect a ‘wall’ to divide the staff of the intelligence committee on a partisan basis — this would be a terrible mistake,” the committee’s ranking member, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, told CBS News. “While we have more than our share of difficulties, the important oversight work of the committee continues with our staff working together irrespective of party. This would be a very destructive decision.”
