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.

Iran probes seized UK-flagged tanker — Britain to hold emergency meeting
ran warned Sunday that the fate of a UK-flagged tanker it seized in the Gulf depends on an investigation, as Britain prepared for an emergency security meeting on Tehran's action.
Iranian authorities impounded the Stena Impero with 23 crew members aboard off the port of Bandar Abbas after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized it Friday in the highly sensitive Strait of Hormuz.
Video footage released by Iran showed the Stena Impero tanker being surrounded by speedboats before troops in balaclavas descend a rope from a helicopter onto the vessel.
In an audio recording of a radio exchange, an Iranian officer can be heard ordering the tanker to change course "immediately".
For Cubans — a day at the beach is no easy task
Cuba's constitution guarantees its people access to its beaches, but many locals are unable to enjoy the island's pristine white sands and crystal clear blue waters.
While foreign tourists flock to such paradisiacal Havana sites as Varadero, which was this year named the second most-beautiful beach in the world by American travel website TripAdvisor, Cubans are typically found elsewhere.
"Not many tourists come here," said 43-year-old Rey Gonzalez, who was enjoying a day at Guanabo, a beach east of the capital.
Guanabo's sand isn't as white and the water not quite as clear as Varadero's, but that mattered little to Gonzalez, who was there with his family.
