In an appearance with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures” this weekend, Rep. Devin Nunes said that the media bore much of the blame for the incoherent, false narrative that had given birth to both the Russia hoax and its sequel, the Ukraine hoax. In a fiery interview, Nunes said that after surviving these witch hunts, it was up to President Trump and the Justice Department to bring the orchestrators to heel.
“I believe we’re going to get accountability,” Nunes said. “I believe [U.S. Attorney John] Durham is going to get to the full story. You see what the president is doing. I’ve been saying for a long time that the National Security Council that’s there at the White House, 400 and some people, he would be best to take all of those people, ship them across the Potomac, quarantine them, get them the hell away from the White House, because we know that a lot of the leaks for the last three-plus years have been coming from that National Security Council. The president really only needs to have Trump appointees with him in the White House, because we know they are talking to the media.
“That’s really what caused this problem, Maria, it has been the media,” he continued. “The legacy media in this country, they’re not doing their jobs. This whole Russia hoax and Ukraine hoax, they were in on it from the very beginning. They refuse to talk about just how wrong the Democrats really were. Why is that? At some point, you have to understand, they’re just part of the team. They’re part of the socialist left. There’s no other excuse for it.”
Nunes said that despite being called a liar, a schemer, and a colluder for his role in defending President Trump from the outlandish allegations being thrown against him, he was gratified to have been proven right.
“Everything the Republicans in the House have done over the last three years, we never missed once,” he said. “Everything we said came out to be true. The very thing that Adam Schiff accused President Trump of doing, trying to dig up dirt from foreigners, that’s what the Clinton campaign did. We have evidence the Democrats on the Intelligence Committee tried to get nude pictures of the president. The media doesn’t call them out on that, until that happens, we’re going to continue to have impeachment games until the election.”
Nunes, with a hint of resignation in his voice, said that a good portion of the public was now beyond hope.
“We have millions of Americans,” he said, “whose minds are poisoned by the left and the media.”
Nunes isn’t wrong on that last point, but we firmly believe that people are waking up from their propaganda-induced nightmare each and every day. A magician can only flub so many tricks before the audience starts walking out. And the American media has dropped a whole hell of a lot of cards since Trump took office.
