Nicolle Wallace: Trump has not read controversial Devin Nunes Memo — but he may have helped write it

The controversial memo that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been urging President Donald Trump to declassify may have been written by the White House, a panel on MSNBC’s “Deadline White House” with Nicolle Wallace explained Wednesday.

“If you just look at the public comment so far, which is that [Nunes] won’t answer the question and that the White House won’t unequivocally say, no…when you see hedges like that in public, it often means the answer privately is yes, they did work together,” Washington Post reporter Ashley Parker concluded. “But again to be clear, we don’t know that definitively yet.”

“Let me offer a theory. What if he helped create the memo?” Nicolle Wallace asked. “What if he knows he’s going to release it because he helped create it?”

“It’s certainly possible and certainly the history, Devin Nunes recused himself from the Russia investigation which was for doing this thing, collaborating with the White House to create a bogus charge back in a year ago now, right?” NBC News national-affairs analyst Jon Heilemann replied.

“So, if a precedent tells you anything, I have no basis, no factual basis to say that theory is true, but we have precedent for that theory being true because it’s happened before,” Heilemann concluded.

Reporting on a planned White House task force meeting on Tuesday where FDA head Steven Hahn is expected to provide an update on the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, CNN's John Harwood said officials in the government are having to fend off a pestering Donald Trump.

According to CNN's Jim Sciutto, Trump is "upset" that the vaccine hasn't been released to the public yet because he doesn't understand the complexity of the massive public health project and why the FDA hasn't approved the vaccine's release.

"This is not the first time we've been concerned about the president interfering, perhaps with an eye towards politics, to the scientific questions about vaccine approval. What do we know?" Sciutto asked.

C-SPAN caller claims vaccine companies are trying to implant him with ‘tracking device’

Published

A C-SPAN caller from North Carolina claimed on Tuesday that pharmaceutical companies are plotting to include a tracking device in COVID-19 vaccines.

"I'm 71 years old, basically in pretty good health," a caller named Mark told C-SPAN's Washington Journal. "I don't really have any problem taking the vaccine except that I'm hearing of the possibility of them including a barcoded tracking device that will be a part of the vaccination and they say the reason for that, if it's true, would be to better get effective results with respect to the virus and the vaccination."

"Where are you reading this report?" the C-SPAN host interrupted.
