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.
