Nobody savvy is under the impression that Devin Nunes is a first rate, or even a third rate intellect, but the mish-mash of his mental processes, as evidenced by his commentary during the impeachment inquiry and now his reaction to his part in the Ukraine scandal being exposed, is truly astounding. Nunes was on a call in to Fox News Sunday and his reliance on simplistic jargon and paranoid rebuttal — all vaguely couched — reveals a mind set devoid of all reasoning power — yet this is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee? This is someone who is entrusted with finding truth in crucial matters of national importance? If that’s the case, we are so phucked. But then you knew that.
BARTIROMO: Were you in Vienna w/Shokin?
NUNES: Because there is criminal activity here, I'm not going to sit here & try to compete against the media
B: To be clear, you're telling me CNN committed criminal activity?
N: It's very likely, or they're an accessory to it, right? pic.twitter.com/epHJN0V7gK

The rate at which our American institutions are being eroded in the era of Trump is positively horrifying. I suppose that on the bright side, Nunes has found a more interesting defendant than a fake cow to litigate against. This guy has got to go. If there’s one congressional seat we get in 2020, it’s got to be his. The man is seriously not playing with a full deck.
