Speaking by phone with the hosts of “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) attacked special counsel Robert Mueller’s report as a “partisan document,” even before seeing it, and said it should set on fire.
According to the California congressman who has been one of President Trump’s most ardent defenders, the real culprits who should be investigated is Hillary Clinton and the FBI– blaming them for Mueller’s Justice Department-initiated inquiry.
‘We can just burn it up,” Nunes said of the report submitted to Attorney General William Barr. “I mean, it is a partisan document. So there’s going to be a lot of calls for that. And the Democrats are going to be saying we need to see the underlying information.”
“What we really need to see is what was the FBI’s involvement with Fusion GPS,” he ranted. “I don’t want to gloss over this for the viewers, but Fusion GPS was essentially the Hillary Clinton campaign — they were hired by the Clinton campaign.”
Nunes went on to complain about the FBI interviewing Roger Stone associate Jerome Corsi before stating they had “every right” to speak with Wikileaks founder Julian Assanage — before admitting we wouldn’t agree with that either.

If the GOP thinks Trump is ushering in a crisis — why did they support him for the last year?: Bulwark editor
Veteran newsman Carl Bernstein revealed that there are 21 Republicans too scared to reveal they think President Donald Trump should have reached the end of his options to fight the 2020 election. Still, most of them aren't speaking out publicly and they spent the past year enabling Trump, knowing full well that this is who he is.
Writing for the Bulwark on Monday, Jonathan V. Last cited editors of the National Review who are calling Trump's behavior “disgraceful” and “the most outlandish and irresponsible performance ever by a group of lawyers representing a president of the United States.”
‘You can’t vote no’: GOP canvasser gets schooled at Michigan certification meeting
A Republican member of Michigan's Board of State Canvassers was confronted by a former state elections director over attempts to delay certification of the state's election results without a vote.
"I think, first of all, the answer is, of course, you can't vote 'no,'" Chris Thomas told Board member Norm Shinkle. "There is no 'no' in this circumstance. Each of you play a necessary role -- you're at the pinnacle of Michigan's democracy -- you're the endgame of the statewide elections for 2020."
Thomas went on to say that after 5.5 million people have exercised their right to vote, it's the Board's responsibility to make the results "which are already widely known, official."
