WATCH: Devin Nunes tells Sean Hannity the Russians ‘could have information on Comey’

Published

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Fox News personality and close Donald Trump confidante Sean Hannity to try out a new deflection defense of the Republican administration.

On the same day former FBI Director James Comey’s new book, A Higher Loyalty, was publicly released, the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence went on Fox News to shield the White House.

Congressman Nunes began by misquoting the former FBI director.

“I think he said it’s ‘certainly possible that the Russians could have information on Trump,'” he claimed.

Comey’s quote, in an ABC News interview, was actually far more specific, referring to the salacious Steele Dossier.

“I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013,” Comey said. “It’s possible, but I don’t know.”

Congressman Nunes then deflected by listing other things that were “possible.”

“Well, it’s certainly possible that the Russians could have information on Comey,” Nunes suggested. “It’s certainly possible that the Russians could have information on Hillary Clinton. It is certainly possible that they have information on all kinds of people.”

The few police willing to join in solidarity with protesters

Published

on

Reports of the protests across the country are focusing on the violence, clashes and property damage caused by a small few rather than the peaceful protest of those rallying against injustice and the police standing in solidarity with them.

A few captured positive moments of cities where officers support the protests and believe Black lives do actually matter.

There were moments of protesters fist-bumping police, hugs with police, and in one incident in New York City over the weekend, one officer was separated from his unit. Protesters surrounded him with locked arms to protect him from those being violent. In Miami, Florida and Seattle, Washington, police joined protesters in kneeling.

Trump shows all the signs of being ‘rattled’ now that the White House is under siege from protesters: columnist

Published

on

In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.

As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."
