The quality of Devin Nunes’ problems has just escalated out of the realm of fake cows and what he deemed the “circus” of the House impeachment inquiry. Congressman Nunes may be looking at an indictment for breaking federal law, by trying to solicit something of value to a political campaign from a foreign national. Rudy Giuliani’s henchman, Lev Parnas, is testifying that former Ukrainian prosecutor Victor Shokin met with Nunes in Vienna for the purpose of discussing digging up political dirt against Joe Biden. This is precisely what Fiona Hill spoke of with respect to Gordan Sondland, when she said that Sondland was doing a personal errand for Donald Trump whereas she and others were advancing a diplomatic agenda, and those two things had diverged, and were likely to “blow up.” Nunes was part of the contingent that was furthering Donald Trump’s personal political interests in Ukraine, not America’s. CNN:

Congressional travel records show that Nunes and three aides traveled to Europe from November 30 to December 3, 2018. The records do not specify that Nunes and his staff went to Vienna or Austria, and Nunes was not required to disclose the exact details of the trip.
Nunes’ entourage included retired colonel Derek Harvey, who had previously worked for Trump on the National Security Council, and now works for Nunes on the House Intelligence Committee. Harvey declined to comment.
Bondy told CNN that Nunes planned the trip to Vienna after Republicans lost control of the House in the mid-term elections on Nov. 6, 2018.
“Mr. Parnas learned through Nunes’ investigator, Derek Harvey, that the Congressman had sequenced this trip to occur after the mid-term elections yet before Congress’ return to session, so that Nunes would not have to disclose the trip details to his Democrat colleagues in Congress,” said Bondy.
At the time of the trip, Nunes was chairman of the Intelligence Committee. In January, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff took over as chairman of the powerful committee, which is now conducting the impeachment inquiry.
Here’s where we run into two other names recently in the news with respect to investigating the Bidens, journalist John Solomon, who attacked Fiona Hill, shortly after she exposed the false narrative and conspiracy theory of Ukraine having a part in the 2016 election, and of course Lindsey Graham, because he, too, now wants to launch a formal investigation of the Bidens, as does Nunes.
[Parnas’ attorney] Bondy says that according to his client, following a brief in-person meeting in late 2018, Parnas and Nunes had at least two more phone conversations, and that Nunes instructed Parnas to work with Harvey on the Ukraine matters.
Parnas says that shortly after the Vienna trip, he and Harvey met at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, where they discussed claims about the Bidens as well as allegations of Ukrainian election interference, according to Bondy.
Following this, Bondy says that in a phone conversation Nunes told Parnas that he was conducting his own investigation into the Bidens and asked Parnas for help validating information he’d gathered from conversations with various current and former Ukrainian officials, including Shokin.
Parnas says that Nunes told him he’d been partly working off of information from the journalist John Solomon, who had written a number of articles on the Biden conspiracy theory for the Hill, according to Bondy.
Nunes has been asked about these matters and his response has been as whacked out, if not more so, then his bizarre running commentary during the House impeachment inquiry about “what drug deal the Democrats are cooking up here on the dais.” Nunes’ response to reporters’ inquiries on the Vienna trip has been answered with, “To be perfectly clear, I don’t acknowledge any questions from you in this lifetime or the next lifetime,” Nunes said while leaving the impeachment hearing. “I don’t acknowledge any question from you ever.” Nunes has crossed a bright red line, here. This is not a normal, sane response by an adult to a reasonable question by a reporter. Nunes is clearly not playing with a full deck, plus he has violated his oath of office with respect to truthfulness and serving his country first. The people of his district deserve far better representation than this.

They are all so evil. They had some old Republican fuck that was one of the leading cheer leaders during the Clinton impeachment. As old and out of service as he is, he still had all the stupid and evil thug talking points. You know it is bad when you can’t decide which Republican congressman is the most disgusting.

This is one of the reasons they are all defending the dotard so hard, they are all in it almost as deep if not more. The funny part of it is (not funny) if the dotard didn’t have such a big mouth and could keep it shut for just one day, they might all be in the clear for the next 20-25 years.

Such is the state of decay in the GOP, Wolf. Any such players at the leadership level have long since fled the scene.

You really have to wonder…the GOP has had nothing but bad results from Trump’s own devil’s bargain. Why oh why would pouty little Nunes assume that entering into one of those himself will work out? And I also wonder if, like the congenital conspiracy-peddling idiot he is, he’s overestimating how much ACTUAL help Russia can provide. While 2016 were bad elections for US and UK, I get the impression that it’s a trick that was only ever going to work ONCE. Now everybody’s on the lookout, nobody’s keeping this crowd’s secrets and the primary institutions Trump and Co would need… Read more »

How can Devin Nunes do political dirty tricks against the Bidens and this activity not be Illegal for using taxpayer funds for partisan politics? Why Nunes does not recuse himself for conflict of interest? Nunes should be investigated for violating federal law and his conflict of interest remaining as ranking member of the committee!

Ok, who looks into Nunes’ Behavior? He was on my radar since he went to the White House and grounds within a week or two of trump‘s inauguration with a briefcase he didn’t come out with. I’ve been waiting for the FBI to pick him up forever since then. He was one of the entourage to visit Russia that pre-presidency May.
I really couldn’t imagine this country devolving into the abyss— the swamp grows. “We haven’t got a prayer” came to mind; more likely, we only have a prayer.
We really need the whole dirty Mueller report.
