Devin Nunes’ constituent pens scathing editorial demanding ‘Trump’s errand boy’ lawmaker resign — now

Published

on

While Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) appears to have a safe seat in his conservative district, one local voter has had enough of the controversial congressman carrying water for President Donald Trump’s attempts to derail special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into his 2016 presidential campaign.

In a blistering letter to the editor, that the Fresno Bee published under, “In this writer’s opinion, Rep. Devin Nunes should resign,” local Patrick MacMillan tore into his congressional representative, comparing him to the late disgraced red-baiting Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) with a memorable quote delivered by attorney Joseph Welch during the Army–McCarthy hearings in 1954.

“Devin Nunes should resign,” MacMillan bluntly began.

“President Trump’s chief errand boy should leave his post as Representative of California 22. Our history demonstrates several instances of the renegade politics Nunes espouses,” he continued. “I am reminded of a famous line uttered to one Joe McCarthy many decades ago, ‘Have you no sense of decency, sir?’ Nunes’ loyalty to Donald Trump is shameful.”

“I see patients every day that need Mr. Nunes to fight for their health care. Instead Mr. Nunes is attempting to undermine the rule of law in this country. Mr. Nunes would rather serve a carnival con man whose ignorance and corruption surpasses the Harding Administration and Teapot Dome Scandal of the 1920s,” he continued. “Of course, the Nixon administration is our best example of political lies and deceit. I hope many in CA District 22 share my contempt for Mr. Nunes, and show up at the polls in November to kick him out of Washington D.C.”

“Mr. Nunes is the swamp” he added. “He epitomizes everything that Americans dislike about our government and its corrupted ways. Mr. Nunes’ assault on the FBI exposes his political motivations to aid and abet the worst political criminal in our nation’s history, Donald Trump. Mr. Nunes, please resign.”

Appearing on CNN on Friday morning to discuss an alarming whistleblower report on Donald Trump's actions that the president's administration is withholding from Congress, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) encouraged the acting Director of National Intelligence to hand the report over and ignore the administration.

Speaking with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Swalwell made a direct appeal to acting-DNI head Joseph Maguire.

"This is an opportunity for Republicans and Democrats to unite and say, we don't want this in our democracy," Swalwell explained. "You know, that's why I wrote the Protecting Our Democracy Act, to, you know, have a bipartisan commission look at this."
