Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) appeared on “Hannity” the other night to discuss how the DOJ and FBI are “obstructing” the investigation into the 2016 election. He claimed that it was all due to the fact that the DOJ and FBI want Democrats to win the midterm elections. This audacious claim was made with a threat that no matter what happens, they won’t be off the hook.
“It’s the oldest trick in the book,” Nunes explained. “We are getting a very slow snail-pace cooperation that is clearly designed to wait until next week when Congress adjourns. Now, I have news for them. They are still going to have to come in and give depositions. They may think they are not going to, but they are going to be coming in and getting depositions throughout the summer.”
He continued, “They would love to see Republicans lose. I hate to say that, but I have to believe that the Department of Justice and FBI, the people at leadership, they are banking on a loss by the Republicans in the fall.”
