In yet another pathetic attempt to cover for Donald Trump’s corruption, Devin Nunes told Fox & Friends that the FBI and the DOJ set Trump up during the campaign.
On Tuesday morning, Republican Congressman and Trump toady Devin Nunes appeared on Fox & Friends. And he came up with a whole new conspiracy theory to get Trump off the hook for his Russia collusion.
The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said that the federal government actually set Trump up in 2016 by planting a mole in his presidential campaign.
“Let’s talk about how did this get started? You had Fusion GPS that was hired by the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign to draw up a dossier on the president — or as the president was running for president,” Nunes said. “What happened with that is that in [Glen Simpson’s] testimony he mentioned that there was a source within the campaign.”
According to Nunes, the head of Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, told Congress in a closed session that there was a mole planted in the Trump campaign; and he said that would come back to haunt the DOJ and the FBI.
“Glenn Simpson said that in what was closed testimony. Then it became public. Now he’s confirmed that he was telling Congress the truth, which is probably a good idea,” Nunes continued. “We believe he was telling the truth. And what we’re trying to do is get the documents to figure out — did they actually have, what methods were used to open this counter intelligence investigation?”
I think that Nunes is talking about George Papadopoulos. It’s a far-fetched idea that Papadopoulos was planted by the feds. But that’s not stopping Nunes from spewing this nonsense on Trump’s favorite morning show.
“I think if the campaign was somehow set up, I think that would be a problem. Right? If they were somehow meetings that occurred and all of this was a setup,” Nunes said. “Because we have yet to see any credible evidence or intelligence that led to the opening of this investigation.”
