On Friday’s episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” English author and independent journalist Louise Mensch appeared to discuss her work investigating Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.
Her first order of business as the investigation progresses, she said, is to get Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) off of the intelligence committee, because he obviously cannot be trusted. She said that the Democrats on the committee are doing a decent enough job but have yet to call out Nunes and say “he’s got to go.”
“You’ve got to say, ‘He’s got to go now!’ I don’t care if he’s your mate. I don’t care if he’s your buddy. He’s got to go,” she said.
American horror author and screenwriter Max Brooks wants to see liberals and Democrats “get our FDR balls back” and suit up for a fight against the GOP.
Mensch argued that going after Nunes would bring the fight to the GOP and force them to be tied to Trump, who may very well be engaged in treason.
She went on to say that she thinks “we are a lot further down the line to the end of this than most people think” in the Russia investigation. “I sense panic at the White House. I sense an absolute whiff of panic.”
Maher noted that the White House is collectively sweating like whores in churches. He confessed that he has deep concerns of FBI Director James Comey and his inability to control the FBI.
Mensch said cited a Justice Department investigation that looks into the FBI agents in New York leaking to Gen. Michael Flynn, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and the NYPD, who was leaking to Eric Prince, brother of Betsy DeVos. She went on to say that no one is talking about the investigation into it.
Maher was concerned that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is heading the Justice Department but Mensch said that these leaks are part of the Russia problem and Sessions must recuse himself from all of that.
“There are two sides to the FBI,” she continued. “There are the criminal field office divisions that we’re talking about and there’s the counterintelligence division. They issued the FISA warrant as I reported, and James Comey is taking it very seriously.”
Maher speculated on Comey but Mensch said that she does consider him an upstanding person and believes he will do the right thing.

GOPer threatens to quit party on live TV over QAnon Republicans ‘who think Lord of the Rings is a documentary’
Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) on Sunday slammed members of his own party who believe in conspiracy theories pushed by QAnon.
During an interview on Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked Riggleman about "this wacky QAnon conspiracy that has led to some violent actions."
Todd noted that Republican Party had officially endorsed and funded QAnon follower Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress.
"I might as well just piss everybody off," Riggleman replied. "I think if we're doing this, if we're looking at misinformation to pander to a subset of voters, I think we've lost our way."
CNN’s Tapper fires back at White House’s Meadows for personal attack about mask-wearing
During a long and very contentious interview with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper snapped back at Donald Trump's righthand man for trying to mock him for not wearing a mask during the interview where Meadows was not in the studio.
After grilling Meadows for agreeing to designate Vice President Mike Pence as an "essential worker" so he can continue to campaign for Donald Trump after his office became a COVID-19 hotspot, the CNN host pressed Meadows why the president continues to refuse to wear a mask and doesn't demand it of his rallygoers.
Chris Wallace battles GOP chairwoman over laptop smear: ‘Do you have any proof Joe Biden took one penny?’
Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Sunday refused to say if she had any proof of allegations of corruption against Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter.
Fox News host Chris Wallace grilled McDaniel about the Trump campaign's smear against the Biden family on Fox News Sunday.
"Do you have any proof -- because he's denied it -- do you have any proof that Joe Biden every took one penny from either a foreign country or a foreign company?" Wallace asked.
"I think that's incumbent upon the press to start investigating," McDaniel replied. "I think what's frightening is we should have a free and fair press that should be looking at a laptop that has not been disputed by the Biden campaign to be authentic. These emails are deeply troubling as it looks like Hunter Biden is negotiating with a Chinese energy company to profit, not just for himself, but for his father."
