Rep. Devin Nunes is preparing criminal referrals re. FBI & FISA to Attorney General Barr

Is this another false hope?

A criminal referral or recommendation is a notice to a prosecutory body, recommending criminal investigation or prosecution of one or more entities for crimes which fall into that body’s jurisdiction.

In the U.S. federal government, agencies that investigate crimes — including the House Intelligence Committee — typically refer cases to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for prosecution at its discretion. The U.S. attorney general heads the DOJ.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), 45, is a farmer with a Master’s degree in agriculture from Cal Poly, who became a politician. His grandparents were immigrants from the Azores, a tiny group of islands more than 800 miles off the coast of Portugal. (See “The Devin Nunes You Don’t Know“)

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. (

Congressman Nunes was the chair of the House Intelligence Committee for four years until January 3, 2019. He lost the chairmanship because Americans in the 2018 midterm elections voted a Democratic majority to the House of Representatives. Since then, Nunes still serves on the committee as the senior Republican.

On January 30, 2019, during an interview on Fox News, Nunes said he plans to make criminal referrals as part of an investigation into political bias in the FBI, and that even though he is no longer chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and Democrats have taken control of the House and the committee, that won’t stop GOP investigators from making headway:

“A lot of people think just because Republicans are out of power that we are not conducting an investigation. We still are. Whether or not people will come in and interview with us, we don’t have gavels, we don’t have subpoena power. But we will still be trying to interview people and we will still be making criminal referrals.”

One person who has already been criminally referred to the Justice Department was former UK spook Christopher Steele, the  author of the fake “Russian hooker” Trump dossier. Steele was criminally referred in January 2018 by then-chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), and now-committee chair Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) who succeeded Grassley.

Nunes said on January 30 that to this day Congress has not heard any updates from the DOJ on the Steele referral. Referring to Trump’s AG nominee William Barr, Nunes said it will take a new attorney general to come in and “clean” up before any real progress can be made. (Washington Examiner)

On February 14, 2019, Trump nominee William Barr succeeded Jeff Sessions as the 85th U.S. attorney general.

See Deplorable Patriot’s post, “Attorney General William Barr jumps into the fire“.

On March 1, 2019, at CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference), Nunes told OANN (0:30 mark):

“We’re still continuing to get to the bottom of what was happening to the Department of Justice and the FBI, trying to make sure that everyone there is held accountable…either through the courts or otherwise…. We’ll be making criminal referrals on a whole host of topics, most importantly probably lying and misleading Congress.”

Five days later, on March 6, 2019, Nunes once again said he’ll be making criminal referrals. He told Fox News’ Sean Hannity (0:03 mark):

We are preparing a criminal referral that we will present to the attorney general at the appropriate time…for many crimes. The obvious ones that you would know about would be lying to Congress. But we will also be looking at FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] abuse and all the other matters that we have been looking into. It will probably be one large referral….

We’re probably going to be prepared in the next two to three, four weeks — one of the things that’s coming up. So don’t mind all the shiny balls that you see running around Congress here — the so-called new investigations [by current House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff (D-CA)]. Just ignore that.

What you should be out looking for is next week. On March 14, the federal judge down in Florida has ordered the release of depositions by Christopher Steele, who is supposedly the author of the dossier, and David Kramer, who pled the Fifth to this committee. who we know was handling and moving the dossier around to press outlets…. We [House Intelligence Commitee] had not ever interviewed Christopher Steele, and we don’t know what David Kramer would say because he pled the Fifth. So this could be critical. It may be nothing, but it could be critical for our referral. “

Note: David J. Kramer was nominated by President George W. Bush to be U.S. assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights, and labor, which he was from 2008 to January 20, 2009. Kramer is currently the senior director for human rights and human freedoms at the (John) McCain Institute, which is funded by the Saudis, Rothschilds, and George Soros. Kramer is a central player in how the fake Trump dossier made its way to the FBI in late 2016. He has invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to testify in connection with questions from the House Intelligence Committee about the anti-Trump dossier’s alleged Russian sources. (Fox News)

Sean Hannity said at the end of his interview with Rep. Nunes (2:16 mark):

“Finally, things are happening, which I’ve been telling you it will.”

Do you believe, too, that things are finally happening?

  1. I’m not going to hold my breath. Ain’t no such thing as equal justice in DC anymore…IMO.

    • Sadly, I agree.

      • Dr Eowyn . . . Although I can easily agree with you . . . somehow there is some faith, whisper, or glimmer of hope that lady justice will move on the horrific criminal acts that we have been forced to watch, time and time again!

        I pray that the Heavens will influence all those who love Justice to do the right thing.

        I must confess, although perhaps I am just a person riddled with anxiety, I do fear for the lives of those who are attempting to move justice forward. We have seen far too many lives cut short by various means–what we might call Arkincide or the like.

        Dr Eowyn . . . This is such an excellent article. Thank you for bringing it to us. At least this prompts us to mention in our prayers that justice might be done in this matter.

    • I agree, but all is not lost if it is done properly. We still have the presidency. If they use what they have they can put the brakes on these mutts in short order. For some reason they have not even tried to do that.

      These appointments are critical. They were even more critical when they had the House. It’s harder now and that’s a direct result of not using the power they had.

      Barr is not the right choice. Neither are 90% of the “career” criminals he has in there. We are a nation of 300m people. They need to flush that system out and bring in people with drive and ethics.

      This is disgusting. I don’t have to be a science fiction writer to see where this is headed. They need to round up these traitorous bastards and throw them in prison. This is an infection.

      This is not “normal” in the sense of every day politics. This is a rolling coup. Most of those involved are already working for the Odor. This is both a “push” and a “cleanup operation”. Think of it like Agenda 21 and 2030. It is the same idea. Every element of existence planned and controlled.

      If you don’t want this it is past time to apply the brakes. If you don’t have access to a brake pedal better start throwing out rocks or bricks to slow this train down. Right now they are all up to their elbows in a Congressional colonoscopy of Trump. They are going after anyone who ever said “hi” to Trump.

      That bug-eyed little slime ball, Schiff, is checking the “P traps” to see if they’ve collected any dirt. Talk about an obvious “operative” for the Odor. He must be looking for a promotion from slime ball to scumbag.

  2. One American News and especially Pearson Sharp’s numerous special segments are excellent. Easily the best TV coverage/exposure of the Bolshevik/DemocRats current attempts to overthrow our government. A “De-Bolshevik” program must be installed to clear out the traitors who have infiltrated into our government, lying MSM, Lobby’s (which should be banned) courts, foundations, and corporations.
    Currently Pearson Sharp is running a segment on the Clinton Foundation/Awan Bros Pakistan Muslim collusion with the DNC to steal classified intell, etc

  3. Good article Dr E, thank you for posting it.
    I believe things will come to light, but I dont think a Navy Seal would be willing to hold his breath. Things move slow in DC and our population’s attention span is short. Things are happening, so I remain hopefull!

  4. When Devin Nunes does interviews with Maria Bartiromo, he often does so from an agricultural exhibition hall or museum; there’s always that old, red tractor in the background… 🙂

    • MarkyMark . . . Thank you for making that comment. It reminds me that I am ever so thankful for honest and true people such as Devin Nunes. He is one of a few federal politicians who have not succumbed to the graft and utilization of his office for personal gain.

      • You are right Auntie, Nunes strikes me as very honorable, but
        I am afraid that one or two people out of the whole congress are pretty much helpless to do anything. Jason Chaffetz said he quit because he couldn’t stand deal with the lawlessness going on in DC.

        • The version that I heard was that they threatened his family. I can believe that.

          • I’m sure the latter is true, though they both amount to the same thing don’t they? Do you have any more specifics on that threat that he received?

            • I don’t think so. That was some time ago. I think it was before my last hard drive blew up. I’ll look.

            • Lana, I looked for it but I can’t find it. If you recall, Chaffetz was knee-deep in the Benghazi investigation with Trey Gowdy. All of a sudden he decided to bail. At the time I bookmarked an article on it that claimed someone had threatened his family. I don’t know how true it was.

              His leaving WAS strange though. I didn’t get the sense that he was simply “tired”. When you mess with the least likable woman in the world you could get “Seth Riched”.

              • Thanks. It does make sense. I do remember him saying that he wanted to ” spend more time with his family” initially. I don’t think he made the remark about the filth of DC until after he had already quit and was doing some commentary on Fox. One wonders about the rest too like Gowdy. I don’t like him or trust him. I think he is pretty much all show, and yet he all of sudden decided to call it quits too.

  5. I’m with Auntie Lulu on all counts!

  6. Does anyone really believe that the FISA judge was defrauded by the Clinton cabal? If so, why hasn’t he or she demanded an explanation or even complained?

  7. Would you not be better of giving these referrals to Muller??

  8. Too bad I wont be here to see the end of it!

  9. Jackie Puppet

    Nunes is smart enough to not only make the referrals, but also to know that nothing may come of them – unlike Trey Gowdy, who for all his blather, was rather ineffective.

  10. This sounds good, BUT, I’ll ONLY believe ACTUAL justice is coming when I SEE these New World Order, Deep State TRAITORS in Washington, in HANDCUFFS, going on trial for TREASON !!!!!!!!

  11. Richard Orberson

    I seriously doubt we ever see anything happen. I won’t believe it until someone is put in jail

  12. Ever wonder why 18 U.S. Code § 2384. Seditious conspiracy (below) is NOT being enforced and Misprision of Treason
    and Misprision of Felony below?
    Confront your senators and congressman!!!

    Pardon me, but…TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION sound familiar?…

    You still believe in leprechauns and 2 political parties laddie/lassies?
    Those who have been intoxicated with power… can

    never willingly abandon it. Socialism/communism need two legs on which

    to stand; a right and a left. While appearing to be in complete opposition

    to one another, they both march in the same direction.

    In these times of deceit truth becomes revolutionary.

    For evil to prosper, none dare call it evil.

    Welcome To The Reality Of THE UNIPARTY (republicrat party) aka democrats/republicans
    Enemies of The Republic and States
    Listen and learn Sons and Daughters of Liberty…especially sunshine patriots and summer soldiers-

    It is up to the forth branch of government, the American people, to enforce the Rule of Constitutional Law. The future of American sovereignty, security, freedom and liberty has always been in the hands of the American citizens, not their “elected public servants.”

    Rome’s greatest statesman, Marcus Tullius Cicero, witnessed the end of the Roman Republic. Before paying with his life, he spoke to the Roman Senate:

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    When a country is captured by traitors who write its laws and punish dissenters, it can rightly be regarded as a colony. The people can likewise be regarded not as citizens, but as subjects, or slaves.

    In 1776, the Colonists fatefully decided to “dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them.”

    The situation we face today is imminently dangerous. We are threatened with the loss of our God-given freedoms. Though the cost may be high, the American people can still secure the blessings of liberty. We must. We owe it to posterity.

    FACT: barrack hussein obama aka barry soetero has committed felony fraud and treason. Knowledge of same under above with no action places one in peril and in dereliction of duty.

    18 U.S. Code § 2384. Seditious conspiracy

    If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
