During an appearance on CNN with host Wolf Blitzer, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes addressed recent reports that he had met with an intelligence source on White House grounds the day before briefing the president.
Nunes came under fire last week for his visit with President Donald Trump, during which he tipped off the president to information that his transition team may have been “incidentally surveilled.”
When Blitzer asked if he understood why it might seem “conspicuous” that Nunes made the White House trip the day before meeting Trump, he said, “if I wanted to, I could have snuck onto White House grounds at night when nobody would have seen me.”
Here’s what people had to say about Nunes:

Honestly, at this point the most 2017 thing to happen would be for the next White House fence jumper to turn out to be Nunes. https://t.co/ewuQboQSgg

Around the IC, Devin Nunes was known as the Gene Parmesan of Capitol Hill. https://t.co/Xg8FfB9455

WH: Hi, we got some intel you can leak to vaguely pretend our wiretap claim wasn’t BS.
GOP House Intel Chair Nunes: I’ll be right over.

Nunes thinks he a combination of James Bond and a ninja, when in reality he’s just a not too bright guy in a very sticky situation. https://t.co/czvQDQWTsn

It’s like Devin Nunes and the White House are attempting some sort of conspiracy, but they’re too inept to pull it off.

@dbernstein Devin Nunes isn’t that bright.
