Rep. Devin Nunes: NYT reporters are paid to write fake news by Democrat Super PACs

On March 15, 2018, in a televised interview on Fox News, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said something stunning.

Beginning at the 5:20 mark in the video below, Congressman Nunes upbraided the “friends of the Democrats in the mainstream media”. Referring specifically to the New York Times, Nunes said the newspaper’s reporters “are heavily funded by Democratic Super PACs,” which the Times “should have disclosed”.

On March 12, 2018, after a 14-month investigation and who knows how much in taxpayer dollars, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence announced that they had completed their Russia investigation and found no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), who led the bipartisan investigation, said on FoxNews’ Special Report:

“We didn’t find any evidence of collusion and I don’t think [special counsel Robert Mueller] will either.”

Committee Chairman Devin Nunes issued this press release:

“After more than a year, the Committee has finished its Russia investigation and will now work on completing our report. I’d like to thank Congressmen Trey Gowdy, Tom Rooney, and especially Mike Conaway for the excellent job they’ve done leading this investigation. I’d also like to recognize the hard work undertaken by our other Committee members as well as our staff. Once the Committee’s final report is issued, we hope our findings and recommendations will be useful for improving security and integrity for the 2018 midterm elections.”

In more good news, the New York Post reports that last night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he had fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, just two days before McCabe is due to retire.

Sessions said in a statement that investigators “concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”

As Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe signed a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) order, requesting the FISA Court to authorize electronic surveillance on Carter Page, a Trump campaign volunteer. The FISA orders were made under false pretenses because material and relevant information was omitted.

Devin Nunes, 44, is a farmer who became a politician, having grown up on his family farm in Tulares County in California’s Central Valley. His grandparents were immigrants from the Azores, a tiny group of islands more than 800 miles off the coast of Portugal.

Nunes has a Master’s degree in agriculture from Cal Poly. When he was 14 years old, he became an entrepreneur when he bought seven heads of young cattle. He once said, “I never pictured myself running for office. I always wanted to be a winemaker and make cheese, that sort of thing.” (See “The Devin Nunes You Don’t Know“)

Diogenes found an honest politician!

Nunes is that rare politician who has not sought to exploit his public office for financial gain.

Unlike corrupt politicians like Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee with a 2015 net worth of $3.5 million, Nunes’ net worth in 2016 and 2015 was estimated at only $158,001. (Heavy.com)

  4. Thanks for sharing this Dr. Eowyn. It is nice to have my perceptions about Nunes confirmed. I always felt he was a straight shooter. The fact that he was a farmer and comes from a farming family is impressive to me. Family farmers are hard working, down to earth people who live close to the basics to life. I think we all owe him a debt of gratitude for bringing this whole thing to light. He certainly stuck his neck out in a place where to being honest can ruin you.

  6. Didn’t know about Nunes’ background before…hopefully, he’ll continue to remain true to his roots.

    I hope he’ll become a winemaker – after he’s done his part in cleaning America’s house.

  7. I admired this young man for not giving up. The left tied his hands and shut him up for several months and still he came back. I think he is a straight shooter. It is sad the left is so twisted they can’t even run a fair and honest campaign or in daily life. They think evil money is the answer to everything.
    Their day will come and it won’t end like they think.

    Yes, that is true some of these supposedly “journalists” are double dipping – being paid by their employer and then being paid on the outside. Isn’t that a conflict of interest?

  12. I believe his claims on NYT funded by DNC. But w/ statements like this? they are rarely sourced so cant be used in arguments or essays etc. Opponents can deny them- and reasonably so.
