Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) spun a series of wild conspiracy theories involving a political research firm, Hillary Clinton and the Loch Ness Monster in his opening statement ahead of Robert Mueller's testimony.

The former special counsel testified Wednesday before the House Intelligence Committee that Nunes once led, and the California Republican wasted no time in chewing the scenery.

"The Democrats have argued for nearly three years that evidence of collusion was hidden just around the corner," Nunes said. "Like the Loch Ness monster, they insist it is there even if no one can find it."

Social media users poured on mockery of Nunes' opening statement.
