House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) lashed out at "the left" on Fox News Saturday after being mocked by CBS The Late Show host Stephen Colbert on Friday night.
Colbert derided the Fresno Republican as a "failed clone of Steve Carrell" during a trip to DC investigate the dueling memos issued by Intel Chair Nunes and ranking member Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA).
Following Colbert's "investigation of the investigators" segment, Fox News personality Neil Cavuto asked Nunes about Colbert's comedy sketch.
“Yeah well, I think this is the danger that we have in this country, this is an example of it,” Nunes warned. “So the left controls not only the universities in the country, but also control Hollywood in this country, and the mainstream media, so conservatives in this country are under attack and I think this is a great example of it, so I hope they'll continue to do it."
Nunes added the left must "resort to going to their friends in Hollywood to make fun of people and attack people trying to get to the truth."
"When they say, 'you're doing the president's bidding,' is that fair?" Cavuto asked. "Is that right? What do you think?"
"I don't know," Nunes replied. "We don't get any orders from the White House. We don't get any orders from anybody else."
In February, Nunes denied being a Russian agent.
“I was asked to serve on the transition team. It was at that point I began getting accused by all sorts of media and some platforms that I was some sort of secret Russian agent,” he remarked. “If anybody was going to be accused of being a Russian agent, I would have been down towards the bottom of the list, after you listed all the Democrats in Congress.”
