Devin Nunes: “We Have Briefed DOJ on Eight Criminal Referrals – Two for Criminal Conspiracy”
Here is a, perhaps, worthy comment from over at The Conservative Treehouse:
Nunes did say that the referrals ARE being investigated within the context of the much larger investigation being conducted by USA Durham. And he also said that Horowitz should be allowed to finish and issue his FISA investigation report, which touches on he conspiracy referrals (obviously). I totally understand the impatience and the desire to extract a pound of flesh (and much more) from the likes of Comey, Brennan, McCabe, Mueller and their odious ilk. There are things that have to happen first, like the due process these disgusting, arrogant people never afforded President Trump, Carter Page, General Flynn, George Papdopoulos and many others known and unknown. Due process is in progress, strange as that may seem.AND THEN THERE'S THIS:
“There are things that have to happen first”?
One of the first things that happened was Horowitz had to release his long, long awaited report. Barr’s DOJ stamped the report “Let him walk”. Comey rec’d the same level of repercussion as he gave Hillary. The requisite comments about how wrong decisions were made but overall, let’s be satisfied his own conscience will provide punishment.
Yes, there is impatience because if any other American had done what Comey did we would be indicted on every single count. The entire DOJ would not be carefully cherry picking which crimes deserve punishment and which ones aren’t severe enough to prosecute. In the real world, average Americans face the music.
Now we’re told to hold on because while they let him off on this piece of the investigation, just wait till they get to the part about the FISA warrants and the lying to Congress thing. That’s when he’s gonna really get the book thrown at him.
Please. When is the last time we’ve ever seen somebody hauled off to jail for lying to a Congressional committee?AND THIS:
