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.

House impeachment managers released an in-depth trial memorandum laying out the case for convicting President Donald Trump during his Senate impeachment trial.
The memorandum was released by representatives Adam Schiff (D-CA), Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Val Demings (D-FL), Jason Crow (D-CO) and Sylvia Garcia (D-FL).
The document divides the argument by the House of Representatives into three points.

"The Senate should convict President Trump of obstruction of Congress," is the second section.

President Donald Trump is reportedly "distracted" by impeachment while vacationing at Mar-a-Lago as the United States Senate trial begins.
"A source close to the White House who speaks to Donald Trump regularly said the President has appeared 'distracted' by the impeachment trial that begins on Tuesday, telling people around him Friday night at Mar-a-Lago that he 'can't understand why he is impeached,'" CNN's Jim Acosta reported Saturday. "'Why are they doing this to me,' the source quoted Trump as saying repeatedly."
Rod Rosenstein’s legal defense in lawsuits from Strzok and Page won’t hold up under oath: legal experts
Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein claimed responsibility for the release of text messages between then-FBI attorney Lisa Page and then-FBI official Peter Strzok.
Emails released in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) revealed the highly unusual release by Sarah Isgur Flores, who at the time was the spokesperson for Trump's Department of Justice (she is now overseeing CNN's 2020 election coverage).
Flores instructed reporters to not cite the release of the documents to the Depart of Justice.
