Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on CNN last week that House Republicans Devin Nunes, Trey Gowdy, Jim Jordan, and Mark Meadows were the “four horsemen of this apocalypse” for their insistence on actually providing congressional oversight over the Department of Justice and the FBI.
Instead of simply carrying water for the Obama administration and the ethically-challenged law enforcement apparatus that went to work spying on and attempting to destroy the Trump campaign, these Republicans have decided it is their constitutional duty to shine a light on the corruption.
That’s a huge problem for people like Schiff, who are turning themselves into household names by proving to everyone in TV-land that THEY are the most vicious Trump opponents of all.
Schiff said the aforementioned Horsemen were only interested in getting to the bottom of the DOJ’s misdeeds so they could leak documents and information to the public, influence voter opinion, and help President Trump.
“They have been leading the charge basically to require the Justice Department to give them materials that can be leaked or fed or misrepresented, like the infamous Nunes memorandum, in the service of the president,” Schiff said. “And in the meantime, they do enormous damage to these institutions. Ultimately, they will be held accountable.”
Nunes, however, scoffed as his second-in-command on the House Intelligence Committee in an interview with Laura Ingraham. Asked to respond to Schiff’s remarks, Nunes said, “We’re not going to be threatened by the Democrats. They are the ones who have all this blood on their hands.
“They’re the ones who completely destroyed the FBI and DOJ,” he continued. “How did they do that? They did that by digging up dirt, the Clinton campaign dug up dirt, put it into a dossier, fed into the FBI and the FBI used our counterintelligence capabilities against a political campaign.”
Nunes has proven to be one of the most unlikely heroes of the Trump Era; we actually shudder to imagine how little we would know about the inner workings of this Russia investigation if it were not for his patriotic bravery. This guy is courageously facing down the FBI, the Department of Justice, the Democratic Party, and the mainstream media in his quest to find and expose the truth about this witch hunt. He has stepped on some mighty powerful toes to do so.
Make no mistake, he is not afraid of the likes of Adam Schiff.
