Watch Devin Nunes freak out and eject reporters when asked about phone calls with Lev Parnas

Published

on

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) lost it over the weekend when he was asked about his phone calls with Rudy Giuliani’s associate Lev Parnas, who was recently indicted.

Nunes was at a Republican Party fundraiser in New York City when two Intercept reporters asked about the impeachment probe. Recent phone records subpoenaed by the House Intelligence Committee revealed that Nunes had multiple conversations with Giuliani and with Parnas.

In an interview this week with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Nunes said he doesn’t “recall” speaking to Parnas but confessed that it’s “possible” they did speak. In fact, records show Nunes forgot they spoke four times.

When the Intercept reporters asked Nunes about the calls and if he was involved in any effort to pressure Ukraine, he sprinted off. A few minutes later, he returned with his cell phone and pointed it at the reporters. The reporters asked Nunes the questions again, he then went to the Capitol Police officer stationed at the event and had the reporters kicked out of the hotel.

“An individual Nunes spoke to in the hotel, wearing an earpiece, followed The Intercept around the block after the exchange,” they reported.

Nunes is involved in multiple lawsuits, one against his hometown newspaper, The Fresno Bee, and two suits against parody Twitter accounts, one of which is a fake cow.

Merritt Corrigan, who once complained the U.S. is in the clutches of a “homo-empire” that pushes a “tyrannical LGBT agenda,” according to Pro-Publica, made several announcements via her now unlocked but mostly-all deleted Twitter account.

MSNBC’s ‘demotion’ of ‘feckless’ Chuck Todd celebrated: ‘Hurray! More Nicolle, less Chuck’

Published

on

MSNBC host Chuck Todd was moved to an earlier timeslot where his show, "Meet the Press Daily," will likely earn lower ratings. Meanwhile, Nicolle Wallace seems to have been promoted to a two-hour timeslot leading into primetime.

Wallace, who has extensive experience in Washington, previously served in George W. Bush's White House until abandoning the GOP as the era of Trump came to power.

Todd has made several missteps where he's been unwilling to press GOP leaders who lie openly and obviously on camera.

George Conway blasts ‘blundering cheat’ Trump in new op-ed: ‘His name should live in infamy’

Published

on

Prominent conservative attorney George T. Conway III has written yet another Washington Post op-ed blasting President Donald Trump.

"If there’s one thing we know about President Trump, it’s that he lies and he cheats. Endlessly," Conway wrote. "And shamelessly. But still, mostly, incompetently."

"So it should have come as no surprise that Trump finally went where no U.S. president had ever gone before. In a tweet last week, he actually suggested that the country 'Delay the Election.' That trial balloon was a brazen effort to see if he can defraud his way into four more years in the White House," he explained. "And why not try? After all, Trump has managed to swindle his way through life, on matters large and small, essential and trivial."
