Devin Nunes, the far right wing California Republican infamously known for accepting propaganda from the Trump White House then breathlessly calling a press conference to claim he had just shared information from "whistleblowers" with the White House, is quitting Congress to head Donald Trump's new "media" company, Trump Media & Technology Group.
