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.
