Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told “Fox & Friends” on Monday that he’s outraged that Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has chosen former Obama administration attorney David Kris to oversee reforms to the FISA warrant process.
During an appearance on President Donald Trump’s favorite morning news show, Nunes slammed the appointment of Kris, who in the past had written articles that were highly critical of Nunes and his attempts to claim Trump had been framed by the FBI.
“One of the worst people that you could find in the Swamp!” Nunes fumed.
“Unbelievable!” concurred co-host Brian Kilmeade.
Nunes has been sulking about Kris’s appointment for days now, as he lashed out at the former assistant attorney general for national security during a Sunday morning Fox News interview as well.
“Of all the people in the swamp… this is the guy that you come up with?” Nunes said. “The guy that was accusing me of federal crimes? The guy that was defending the dirty cops at the FBI?… The court must be trying to abolish itself. There is long-term damage.”

July 4 re-opening still on after employee at private sports club owned by billionaire governor tests positive for coronavirus
After at least three complaints alleging lax reopening practices at West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s luxury resort hotel, a kitchen employee has tested positive for the coronavirus at a residential and sports club affiliated with The Greenbrier.
Local Health Department officials directed a 14-day quarantine for potentially exposed employees at The Lodge, a restaurant at the Greenbrier Sporting Club, and the venue will remain closed until July 10. Festivities planned at the club for July 4 will go on, but with food from other facilities.
"While the events of the past few days certainly have thrown us a curve ball, we have reached out to our friends and colleagues in the area to pull together a festival that will have something for everyone," the director of operations at the sporting club, Allen Wills, told its 400 members in a Tuesday night email, obtained by ProPublica.
Why people want to see Donald Trump’s tax returns
The Supreme Court is expected to rule on two cases regarding access to President Donald Trump’s tax filings soon. At the heart of the cases: Can House committees and a New York grand jury subpoena financial institutions for Trump’s personal and business tax filings?
If the Supreme Court rules against Trump, it opens the possibility that the public could eventually see his personal tax return and business records, though experts say it would be unlikely to happen quickly. Here’s why people want to see Trump’s tax returns and what they may reveal about the president.
Cheyenne River Sioux Chair offers to rip down Mount Rushmore— ‘Free of charge… by myself if I must’
As local communities, states, and nations worldwide contend with the legacies of racism, colonialism, and exploitation chiseled or molded into monuments of historic figures with bloody and contemptuous pasts, Frazier said in a statement Monday, "Nothing stands as a greater reminder to the Great Sioux Nation of a country that cannot keep a promise or treaty than the faces carved into our sacred land on what the United States calls Mount Rushmore."
