Nunes blasts Dems for dropping ‘narrative bombs’ in media, says they ‘have poisoned the American people’

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told “Outnumbered Overtime” Thursday that he “is getting sick” of congressional Democrats pushing “narrative bombs” in cooperation with the mainstream media.

“You have Democrats, about a third of them, who are now proxy voting,” said Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. “They’re hiding in their basement, just like their candidate [Joe Bien] … [and] not even showing up in Washington, D.C. to work.”

“The irony,” Nunes went on, “is that these are people who have poisoned the American people.”

SUPREME COURT PUNTS, DENIES TRUMP IMMUNITY BUT BLOCKS HOUSE DEMS FROM TAX DOCS

Nunes was reacting to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s vow to continue to press for President Trump’s financial records in lower courts after the Supreme Court blocked Congress from getting Trump’s tax returns immediately, instead sending the case back to the lower courts.

“A careful reading of the Supreme Court rulings related to the president’s financial records is not good news for President Trump,” said Pelosi, D-Calif.

Pelosi claimed that she didn’t expect the Supreme Court to rule that Congress could get the records immediately, but said the high court had reaffirmed that Congress has a pathway to obtain documents and that Trump is not above the law.

In a separate case, the Supreme Court ruled that Trump is not immune from a subpoena for his financial and tax records issued by Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

“The gall and the brazenness of these folks is just incredible …” Nunes said. “What they try to do is they try to grab this information and then they try to create narratives that the media is willing to run with.

“I’m actually happy that we don’t have to deal with this between now and the election because it would just be more nonsense …,” he added. “When we have to deal with … a narrative bomb, it runs across all the platforms and then Republicans are always having to respond to it and I can just imagine what they would do by nitpicking little things and then throwing them out there for the American public to consume.”

Nunes: Twitter, Google, Facebook are ‘tech tyrants’ that censor conservatives

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., railed against Twitter, Google and Facebook tech giants, claiming they improperly wield power over the content Internet users view by censoring conservative-leaning content.

Nunes currently suffered a loss in a defamation lawsuit he filed against Twitter, parody accounts known as “Devin Nunes’ Mom” and “Devin Nunes’ Cow,” and a Republican strategist when a judge ruled that Twitter cannot be held liable for defamatory tweets because federal law classifies them as merely a platform, not a publisher.

DEVIN NUNES’ ATTEMPT TO SUE TWITTER OVER PARODY POSTS SHUT DOWN BY JUDGE

“Google, Facebook, and Twitter, okay; they’re the tech oligarchs, they’re tech tyrants,” Nunes told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” accusing them of furthering a left-wing agenda by controlling which media ends up being seen by their users — while the media is mostly “not only left-wing but it’s owned now by billionaire left-wingers.”

“There’s very few in the news media that are actually trying to get the facts out there,“ Nunes said. “When you have 92 percent of the searches going through Google, you might have a problem because when you plug that content into those three giant tech companies, it’s really starting to have an influence and an effect on the politics in this country.”

Nunes claimed that people are “getting funneled this garbage and fake news,” while “Republicans and conservatives are being driven out and off of” the Internet.

TRUMP CRAFTS EXECUTIVE ORDER ON SOCIAL MEDIA, WEIGHS COMMISSION TO PROBE BIAS AMID TWITTER FIGHT

The California Republican said that the Internet was supposed to be “a public square” where everyone could express their views, but “what’s happening on Twitter, Facebook and Google is we are being censored. Conservatives are being censored.”

The law that the judge in Nunes’ lawsuit cited that protects Twitter is Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, which says that social media platforms are not legally considered the publishers of the statements that third parties post.

The law allows social media platforms to have and enforce terms of conduct and restrict offensive content. The tech giants have been accused of overstepping by controlling the content that appears beyond their terms of service.

Both President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden have spoken out about Section 230 protections.

President Trump issued an executive order in May, clarifying that Section 230 does not protect platforms that “engage in deceptive or pretextual actions stifling free and open debate by censoring certain viewpoints.” In a January New York Times interview, Biden criticized Section 230, saying that the protections should “be revoked.”

Devin Nunes’ attempt to sue Twitter over parody posts shut down by judge

A Virginia judge nixed Rep. Devin Nunes’ lawsuit against Twitter over parody posts from a fake cow account, someone pretending to be his mother and a Republican strategist who has criticized the congressman.

The judge ruled that federal law prevents social media platforms from being held liable for posts made by third-party users.

The lawsuit sought “to have the court treat Twitter as the publisher or speaker of the content provided by others based on its allowing or not allowing certain content to be on its platform,” wrote Judge John Marshall in his decision, according to the Fresno Bee, Nune’s hometown newspaper. “The court refuses to do so.”

Twitter has been removed from the suit, but the case against the two parody accounts and strategist Liz Mair will continue, according to the Bee, which reported that it is also the target of a lawsuit from Nunes.

The complaint alleged that the timing and substance of the tweets suggested that Mair was working jointly with parody accounts.

NUNES SUES TWITTER, SOME USERS, SEEKS OVER $250M ALLEGING ANTI-CONSERVATIVE ‘SHADOW BANS,’ SMEARS

The California congressman filed the $250 million lawsuit last year in Virginia state court, alleging defamation, conspiracy and negligence while seeking damages and accusing the social media site of “shadow-banning conservatives” to secretly hide and censor their posts.

He also sought also an injunction compelling Twitter to turn over the identities behind the accounts he said harassed and defamed him. Twitter has declined to do so, although the @DevinNunesMom account was suspended after Nunes’ real mother complained to the company last year. The account @DevinCow is still active and retweeted a post about the lawsuit as recently as Thursday morning.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has testified previously before Congress that his platform is a kind of “digital public square,” although he has insisted that Twitter, as a private company, retains the right to censor speech.

Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act has drawn criticism from lawmakers for years. It says social media companies cannot be considered “the publisher or speaker” responsible for third-party content posted to their platforms.

“It’s the reason why websites can offer platforms for critical and controversial speech without constantly worrying about getting sued,” according to the American Civil Liberties Union.

President Trump issued an executive order last month aimed at curtailing some of those protections given to social media companies, and even Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden has criticized the law. In January, he told the New York Times that the section protecting social media outlets should “be revoked.”

Section 230 does not protect users from being held responsible for their own posts.

Nunes and a number of other prominent conservatives have recently tweeted in favor of Parler, a Twitter alternative that describes itself as “an unbiased social media focused on real user experiences and engagement.”

Nunes knocks Democrats amid FISA legislation stalemate: ‘We have a lot of serious problems here’

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told “America’s Newsroom” Wednesday that Democrats had not involved Republicans in making changes to legislation reauthorizing surveillance powers used by the FBI.

“It’s an unworkable bill, along with the fact that we still have a real need for transparency so the American people know what happened back in 2016,” Nunes said.

Earlier Wednesday, the Justice Department urged President Trump to veto legislation to reauthorize and reform national security authorities in the USA Freedom Act hours before a scheduled vote in the House.

“You have the press, who’s denying this, and then you have Twitter, what I call the tech oligarchs … that are bringing new wrinkles to this because they’re essentially editing and censoring what the American people get to see,” Nunes said, referencing a fact check attached by Twitter to a tweet from President Trump on Tuesday.

TRUMP URGES GOP TO OPPOSE FISA BILL

“So we have a lot of serious problems here and it starts with Democrats needing to be here to work,” he continued.

The legislation was already in jeopardy when Trump tweeted Tuesday night that he’s urging all Republicans to vote no “until such time as our Country is able to determine how and why the greatest political, criminal, and subversive scandal in USA history took place!”

Trump’s warning referred to his longstanding belief that the intelligence community improperly used FISA authorities to surveil his presidential campaign for political reasons.

On Wednesday, Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd said, “The [Justice] Department worked closely with House leaders on both sides of the aisle to draft legislation … the Senate thereafter made significant changes that the Department opposed because they would unacceptably impair our ability to pursue terrorists and spies … the House is now poised to further amend the legislation … if passed, the Attorney General would recommend that the President veto the legislation.”

Nunes explained that lawmakers had reached an agreedment earlier this year with Attorney General Bill Barr to “actually go back and rewrite that law so that we would have access to … all the things that were done in this conspiracy by dirty cops and the Clinton campaign and likely people within the Obama administration, so some of those changes were made.”

“It went to the Senate, it was changed,” he continued.

Nunes added that the fact that many Democrats are not in Washington, D.C. presents a key problem with the process.

“They made these changes, I’m guessing they had conference calls amongst Democratic members of Congress,” Nunes said. “They didn’t involve the Republicans and the attorney general has said these aren’t even workable changes at this point.”

Rep. Devin Nunes on Sunday celebrated the return of a U.S. cruise ship entertainer who’d been stuck at sea for months amid the coronavirus pandemic, as the congressman told “Fox & Friends” that helping him get home was “one of the really only good parts left about this job.”

San Diego native Ryan Driscoll, 26, said he’d been stuck aboard the Seabourn Odyssey off the coast of Bridgetown, Barbados, for 80 days before Nunes caught wind of his situation.

“A lot of times, we’re the last line when people get to us, we’re their last hope. And, we’ve had a lot of people in Ryan’s case. All the members of Congress all over the country have had similar situations, but Ryan’s was particularly important because it took so long,” Nunes, R-Calif., said.

“I’m very thankful to Congressman Nunes and his office,” Driscoll said. “They all helped me get home quicker and safer. They were putting pressure on the local Bridgetown and Barbados government, working with the U.S. State Department as well as the U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown to arrange a charter flight to bring back American citizens, and I was one of those lucky Americans that got to come home on that flight.”

The cruise ship performer added that “without Nunes and his amazing staff in California, I would not be here right now in sunny San Diego. I would be stuck on that ship like many of my friends are still stuck on ships around the world. So, I’m very thankful to be back.”

Nunes said he was “thankful” Driscoll was able to return safely to his family, adding that his team was focussed on bringing home other citizens “trapped overseas” amid the pandemic.

Devin Nunes tells Trey Gowdy why he believes the Mueller probe was on ‘thin ice’ from the start

Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said Tuesday on the “Trey Gowdy Podcast” that he believes the basis for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was on “thin ice” from the very beginning.

Rep. Nunes, R-Calif., joined former Rep. Gowdy, a Fox News contributor, for a wide-ranging interview on the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation, the targeting of Gen. Michael Flynn and House Republicans’ efforts to find out what the FBI under then-Director James Comey was doing in 2017.

Nunes said he knew something was amiss when the committee’s access to key documents about the Mueller probe was continually blocked, including the memo from then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein outlining the “scope” of the investigation.

BRENNAN SAYS HE’S WILLING TO BE INTERVIEWED BY DURHAM, SAYS HE HAS ‘NOTHING TO HIDE’

“They were not supposed to use counterintelligence to send up a special counsel. I mean, that is all questionable. … We pounded and pounded away. We couldn’t get access to it,” he explained, adding that when he did finally get a look at the memo in late 2018, the contents couldn’t be revealed because the Mueller probe was ongoing.

“You look back on that and think when they wouldn’t give us a scope memo and now that everybody knows what’s in there, you knew they were lying. I mean, you know, by the documents they don’t give you, you can essentially look back and say, ‘wow’ they were truly on thin ice,” said Nunes, calling the scope memo “damning” because it relied heavily on the discredited Steele dossier about suspected Trump-Russia ties.

“It was all the dossier that they already knew was fake and phony. And I think the question is did Rosenstein and [Christopher] Wray — and whoever was involved in standing up the Mueller team — did they know that the FBI knew at the time and the Mueller team knew at the time that there was no there there? As Peter Strzok said in his infamous text message in early 2017 with Lisa Page, there was no there there.”

Nunes told “The Story” on Monday that Republicans have not referred either former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden for criminal investigation over the Russia probe.

“We’ve been running our own investigation, House Republicans have, for three and a half years and we’ve made our own criminal referrals,” Nunes told host Martha MacCallum after Attorney General William Barr said he does not expect U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the origins of the Russia probe to lead to a “criminal investigation” of either man.

Nunes told Gowdy that he hopes Durham is getting to the bottom of all these matters, including why the FBI and DOJ were “lying to and misleading Congress” in 2017 and 2018.

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told “The Story” Monday that Republicans have not referred either former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden for criminal investigation due to their role in the Russia investigation.

“We’ve been running our own investigation, House Republicans have, for three and a half years and we’ve made our own criminal referrals,” Nunes told host Martha MacCallum after Attorney General William Barr said he does not expect Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the origins of the Russia probe will lead to a “criminal investigation” of either man.

“I don’t want to get into who we’ve specifically criminally referred,” Nunes went on. “So I don’t want to play this cat and mouse game, so to speak. But I can tell you that we have not referred either Biden or Obama.”

BRENNAN SAYS HE’S WILLING TO BE INTERVIEWED BY DURHAM, SAYS HE HAS ‘NOTHING TO HIDE’

“It’s about what what’s on the books and what law was broke,” Nunes added. “You know, we may wish that some people could serve some time because they maybe knew things that were happening that were not right. But that doesn’t mean they broke the law.”

Earlier Monday, Barr spoke at length about the Durham investigation, saying he has a “general idea” of how the investigation is going and confirmed that “some aspects are being investigated as potential crimes.”

Barr added that “not every abuse of power, no matter how outrageous, is necessarily a federal crime.”

MacCallum also asked Nunes to elaborate on other examples of “unmasking” of people affiliated with the Trump campaign in addition to the case of national security adviser designate Michael Flynn.

“Just through a quick cursory look … we noticed dozens of reports that if it said ‘Trump’ or ‘Trump transition official,’ those were being unmasked. And so, you know, this is not really anything new that we haven’t talked about in the past,” Nunes said. “It’s just that it was covered up by the media.

“That’s really the problem here. You know, I went out and publicly said this, and my reward for that was being accused of leaking information to the White House.”

Former House Intelligence Committee member Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., defended the committee’s former chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., Monday, saying he had done a “phenomenal job” investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election campaign during 2017 and early 2018.

“This is what he [Nunes] said,” Gowdy told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “‘We are going to find out what Russia did, with whom, if anyone, they did it, how to make sure they don’t do it again in 2020 and then the issue of unmaskings and leaks.’

“So, there were four pillars of what he wanted us to look at,” Gowdy added. “It’s just [that] nobody gave a damn about three of them. The only thing they cared about was the ‘with whom, if anyone.’ So we did, what, 60-70 witness interviews, the Senate [Intelligence Committee] did that much or more, and then we had [Special Counsel] Bob Mueller.

TRUMP ESCALATES FEUD WITH OBAMA

“Am I defensive of Devin?” Gowdy went on. “I am because he had an incredibly difficult 2017. He wrapped up his investigation a lot quicker than Bob Mueller did, and with a lot less help from the witnesses.”

In February 2018, Nunes released a four-page memo detailing improper surveillance by the FBI and Justice Department in the course of the Russia investigation. The memo specifically raised concerns about the use of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to obtain a surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

Earlier in the interview, Tucker Carlson told Gowdy that the Russia investigation had been allowed to “metastasize” in 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held both houses of Congress.

“It’s sinister, what they [the FBI] did to Michael Flynn,” Carlson told Gowdy, who acknowledged that he had erred in trusting briefings about the investigation in May 2018 by FBI Director Christopher Wray and then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein instead of relying on documents related to the investigation.

“I went over to the Department of Justice. I sat there for four hours. That’s when I saw that Peter Strzok actually initiated and approved Crossfire Hurricane,” Gowdy said. “That’s when I saw the exculpatory information on George Papadopoulos. That’s when I saw, for the very first time, that it was the Trump campaign mentioned in that predicate document.

“They’d been telling us all along, ‘Trump’s not the target, the campaign’s not the target,’ so yes, my mistake was relying on the word of the FBI and the DOJ and not insisting on the documents. Luckily, it took me about three weeks to correct that mistake.”

Nunes: Transcripts show Russia investigation was ‘phony the whole time’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6115142777001_6115139242001-vs Nunes: Transcripts show Russia investigation was 'phony the whole time' fox-news/person/devin-nunes fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/politics fnc article Andrew O'Reilly 8c7374ef-6c79-5d3c-b999-ba082356dad4

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said the Republican strategy during the House investigation into the Russia probe focused an asking if there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The answer they got: none.

“We had a strategy here that we wanted to get every single person that we interviewed, to say whether or not they knew of any evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” Nunes said during an interview on “Sunday Morning Futures.” “Furthermore, what you will see is that we’ve been asked questions about hearsay. Did they hear anything? Do they know anything? Do they have any leads for us whatsoever?

“And the answer was always the same. Nothing,” he said.

COMEY SOUNDS OFF AFTER MOVE TO DROP FLYNN CASE: ‘DOJ HAS LOST ITS WAY’

Nunes, a fierce ally of President Trump, also slammed Democrats in the House for launching an inquiry into the Russia investigation in the first place

“I think that’s the real revelation for the American people, is they were using their own Russian dirt to ask questions,” he said. “And it was all fake. It was all phony the whole time.”

The House Intelligence Committee on Thursday released transcripts of interviews conducted by the panel during its Russia probe in 2017 and 2018 — amid demands by Republicans to make them public after being cleared by the intelligence community.

The committee, led by California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, publicly released 57 transcripts, as well as additional material, from the committee’s investigation.

In a statement, Schiff did not back down from his contention — fiercely disputed by Republicans — that President Trump and his campaign “invited illicit Russian help” to win the 2016 election.

“Despite the many barriers put in our way by the then-Republican Majority, and attempts by some key witnesses to lie to us and obstruct our investigation, the transcripts that we are releasing today show precisely what Special Counsel Robert Mueller also revealed: That the Trump campaign, and Donald Trump himself, invited illicit Russian help, made full use of that help, and then lied and obstructed the investigations in order to cover up this misconduct.” Schiff said in a statement.

But the transcripts are full of testimony from officials who said they were unaware of evidence showing coordination between the Trump team and the Russians.

Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen – who later had a falling out with the president and was sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to several crimes – repeatedly told the House panel that he had no evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russian government.

Earlier last week, House Republicans sought the transcripts after the panel in September 2018 voted on a bipartisan basis to approve their public release. Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell then notified Schiff, D-Calif., that the redaction and declassification process was complete, and that the records were ready for release.

Schiff’s committee said they sent a letter to Grenell informing him that they are releasing transcripts with the redactions applied by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

Nunes: House Intel Committee’s concerns about China have stretched back years, long before coronavirus

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., discussed during an exclusive interview on “Sunday Morning Futures” what he has learned from his panel investigating China over the past decade.

“The concern that we had back in the beginning of 2011, 2012m was that China was trying to take over the global communications architecture, so we looked into companies like Huawei that were somehow underbidding every company in the world,” Nunes told host Maria Bartiromo. “They were giving things away for free and as we know the Chinese don’t do anything for free.” 

He said China then “moved in from communications architecture, which I do believe now that’s given them a global footprint to listen in and grab communications across the globe and to spy on not only people within the United States, but also our allies.”

Nunes continued, “We warned way before anybody else. We warned about those challenges.”

Huawei, a multi-billion dollar Chinese conglomerate and one of the biggest cell-phone manufacturers in the world, has been accused by multiple U.S. intelligence agencies of leaving back doors in its mobile phone equipment, which allegedly could be used to spy on users.

China has been making headlines during the new coronavirus outbreak that originated in the city of Wuhan. Fox News reported earlier this month that the U.S. has been conducting a full-scale investigation into whether the coronavirus, which went on to morph into a global pandemic, escaped from a lab in that city.

“You also look at what they’ve done in giving money out to other countries where they’ve now owned their financial infrastructure and they own their energy structure,” Nunes noted.

“The next big challenge here is going to be 5G,” he added. “Our companies here in the United States are so far behind. China is giving out free 5G products.”

Nunes pointed out that Americans have been getting “lapped by the Chinese over and over and over again.”  He continued, “We’re going to have to make some changes if we want to deploy 5G across this country and beat the Chinese.”

Earlier this month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said China’s role in the global coronavirus pandemic will likely force countries to rethink their telecommunications infrastructure, including the adoption of China-based Huawei’s 5G networks.

Asked about the use of Huawei and 5G, Pompeo told Fox Business in an interview: “I am very confident that this moment — this moment where the Chinese Communist Party failed to be transparent and open and handle data in an appropriate way — will cause many, many countries rethink what they were doing with respect to their telecom architecture.”

He went on, “When Huawei comes knocking to sell them equipment and hardware… they will have a different prism through which to view that decision.”
