We just found out why Rep. Devin Nunes tried to shut down the impeachment trial of Donald Trump: Devin Nunes is part and parcel of the crime committed by Donald Trump. A crime that put America in the crosshairs of Russia.

U.S. News reports: ‘In his statement, Nunes, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, did not mention the key witness appearing before the committee Wednesday, Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland.

Read Nunes’ full statement below:
As I’ve noted before, the Democrats on this committee spent three years accusing President Trump of being a Russian agent. In March 2018, after a year-long investigation, Committee Republicans issued a 240-page report describing in detail how the Russians meddled in the 2016 elections and making specific recommendations to improve our election security.

Denouncing the report as a whitewash and accusing Republicans of “subverting” the investigation, the Democrats issued their own report focusing on their now-debunked conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to hack the elections.

Notably, the Democrats vowed to present a further “comprehensive report” after they finished their investigation into Trump’s treasonous collusion with Russia. For some completely inexplicable reason, after the implosion of their Russia hoax, the Democrats failed to issue that comprehensive report.

This episode shows how the Democrats have exploited the Intelligence Committee for political purposes for three years, culminating in these impeaching hearings. In their mania to attack the President, no conspiracy theory is too outlandish for the Democrats.’
