It Was a Picnic, Y’all. A Picnic, I Tell You.

March 27, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, here’s the deal.

Devin Nunes, National Man of Mystery, made an announcement that Trump’s communications may have been picked up by the CIA.  He won’t say where he got that information or why he took it to the White House before revealing it to other members of the committee.

Well, let’s add another conundrum to this. Nunes admits that he was on “White House grounds” the day before he made the announcement, but that he did not go in the White House.

In all fairness, there are other buildings that share the White House grounds.

It went down like this.

Two congressional sources said Nunes was with a staff member Tuesday night when he got a message, got out of the car and got into an Uber. Staff did not hear again from him that night.

They next heard from Nunes Wednesday morning, the day he scheduled a news conference before going to the White House. The staff do not know where he went Tuesday night.

Bond. James Bond.

Or maybe hiking the Appalachian trail?

A specially called Congress Anonymous meeting?

Nunes said he was there for additional meetings “to confirm what I already knew” but said he wouldn’t comment further so as to not “compromise sources and methods.”

Okay, look, if you already knew it, couldn’t you confirm it with yourself?

An unnamed government official says that Nunes was seen at the National Security Council offices of the Eisenhower building on that night, probably pretending to the Mata Hari.

Nunes has more secrets than a parish priest in Las Vegas.

Congressman, you can be on the House Intelligence Committee or you can be Jason Bourne, but you can’t be both.

    Ms. Juanita Jean Herownself, as always your humor is sublime and erudite. 😀

    On a more crude note, when not in DeeCee peeing on his own foot, Devin has been busy in his home district peeing in the vineyards with Luding Trade Company. Six points of connection would be a hexagram or sexagram with all points pointing to Russia. Oy vey. Is there not anyone in the Donnie camp who hasn’t kissed Vlad?

  2. There is a positive to this story. In contrast to the miserable sneaky machinations of Nunes the statesmanship shown by Adam Schiff stands out.

    At the rate Vlad has lost his Russian friends with Drumpf connections from such disparate methods and means of death as apparent cardiac events, acute lead poisoning, etc those with an insurable interest in Devin’s life might ought to take out a gazillion dollar policy. The possibility he’ll outlive the investigation he chairs is pretty slim.

    Micr, gotta hand it to Vlad for upping the game of “kiss and tell” to “kiss & kill.” Yeah, Devin is probably practicing aerial flights out of upper story windows without a kite.

  5. Micr: I’m gonna take the upside of your bet. I think the “he chairs” part is gonna trump the remainder.

    Every incident of bizarreness. Every incident of moronic petulance. Every time looks of concern and worry flash onto reporters’ faces, Putin is smiling somewhere at how easy it is to utilize partisanship to scuttle our ship of State…

    What good is a solemn oath when people like McTurtle put party above Nation?

    Nunez will end up being a subject of his own committee’s investigations at this rate.

    @Jane & PKM: Leave it to Putin to give a graphic demonstration^ of defenestration to the historically ignorant peoples of the world. Greenface isn’t the limit of how hard Putin plays…

  10. This fool is starting to remind me of a guy who graduated from our liberal arts college and came back for a visit. He said he’d joined the Green Berets (because they had summer camps for children, sort of like the Peace Corps with guns) and “They’re sending me somewhere… but I can’t tell you where! And I’m learning a language… but I can’t tell you what!” Finally someone burst his little bubble by saying, “Scott, no one cares. Really. NO one.”

  11. A Man of Mystery. In his own mind.
    Catch him wearing a red striped shirt with round black glasses and the real Devin Nunes may reveal himself, if you look carefully:

    Where’s Waldo? Washington D.C. Edition.

  12. Jane & PKM says:

    Old Fart, the challenge for the 17 intelligence agencies is finding one Orange Foolius associate or family member who doesn’t have a Russian connection.

    Before Messylina became a Drumpf, she was Slovenian Melanija Knavs, later Germanized to Melania Knauss. Maybe Vlad will dispatch her to give Donnie his final defenestration. Can’t say as anyone would blame her. In fact, she might receive a medal for public service.

    It’s like I was really starting to like Senator Graham, until he apologized to Teddie Crooze for his remark about Teddie being killed on the Senate floor and no one being convicted.
    snacilbupeR almost never apologize, yet on those rare occasions they are onto something, they apologize. Don’t know what the APA is saying, but there should be something in the DSM-5 covering snacilbupeR; possibly the entire manual.

  13. Opinionated Hussy says:

    Jane & PKM – unsure, but I’m leaning toward Borderline Personality D/O because of the chaos they cause around them. There are, of course, histrionic, antisocial, and narcissistic characteristics mixed in.

  14. Jane & PKM says:

    Opinionated Hussy, given Donnie’s absurd fixation with our southern border, the APA might add Over the Borderline Personality D/O to the DSM-5.

    Life would be better, if Orange Foolius was the only psychopath in the pack. But no. Donnie is big into the “birds of a feather” pack mentality with both his hiring and spawning practices.

    If Congress was reasonable Dolt45 and his cabal wouldn’t last 100 days.

  15. One down, Trumpcare. Coming up. A real possibility of a government shutdown in April. Tax reform, benefitting only the 1%. Never coming up: the damn wall and jobs for all the blue collar workers who voted for him. By then, it will be obvious that this presidency is going nowhere and the party with it. Then somebody turns on the fan.

  16. Chloe Bear says:

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, called on Chairman Devin Nunes to recuse himself from the panel’s investigation of Russian interference in the election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

    Schiff’s move came after Nunes (R-Calif.) last week stated he had evidence that Trump transition officials were inadvertently picked up by intelligence surveillance – a claim he made a day after appearing on the White House grounds.

    “After much consideration, and in light of the Chairman’s admission that he met with his source of information at the White House, I believe that the Chairman should recuse himself from any further involvement in the Russia investigation, as well as any involvement in oversight of matters pertaining to any incidental collection of the Trump transition, as he was also a key member of the transition team,” Schiff said in a statement. “This is not a recommendation I make lightly, as the Chairman and I have worked together well for several years.”

  17. If, in fact, Trump’s communications may have been picked up by the CIA then I hope they were wearing rubber gloves.

    And nose plugs.

  18. In all fairness, there are other buildings that share the White House grounds.

    Not that I know of and I’ve lived here 40+ years. And the Eisenhower building (formerly the Old Executive Office Building) is across the street. If Nunez was “on the grounds” he was, literally, on the ground. He’s lying.

  19. Lunargent says:

    I really like Schiff. I don’t think he has the charisma for prez, unfortunately. But he’d be a kickass Attorney General.

  20. Tilphousia says:

    Nunes must go. But trump’s tweets say how things “really are”with crystal clarity. Cockwomble tweeted that the real people to investigate were – wait for it- Bill and Hillary Clinton. Idiot brat thinks he can divert attention from his treason with Russia by screaming “Bill & Hillary!” Will someone please, PLEASE take that insane foaming at the mouth creature’ phone away and shut off Twitter. Trump becomes a worse national embarrassment daily.

  21. “Two congressional sources said Nunes was with a staff member Tuesday night when he got a message..”

    From the White House.

    “…(He) got out of the car and got into an Uber.”

    That took him to the White House.

    “Staff did not hear again from him that night. They next heard from Nunes Wednesday morning…”

    Mission accomplished!

  22. Something about that smile just says, “my fly is open, isn’t it?” to me.
