Nunes Unchained: DOJ and FBI Have Bet All Of Their Chips on Democrats Winning the House, Which Will End Investigations Into Their Misbehavior; 90% of Reporters "Essentially an Arm of the Democrat Party"



Ben Smith immediately demanded that Devin Nunes be excluded from any future meetings with FaceBook.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), in a wide-ranging audio interview with his House colleague Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), accused top officials at the FBI and DOJ of "putting all their chips on the Republicans losing the House" so that their Democratic allies can "shut down" the longstanding Intelligence Committee probe, which has unearthed information disputing claims of collusion in recent months.

Rep. Duffy interviewed Rep. Nunes for an upcoming episode of Duffy's podcast, "Plaidcast."

Nunes also lashed out at the U.S. media, accusing "90 percent" of reporters covering the Russia probe of being "essentially an arm of the Democratic party," according to an advance copy of the interview shared with the Washington Free Beacon.

Speaking of Ben Smith:

Buzzfeed is being sued for publishing the Steele Dossier (or is that the Blumenthal/Shearer dossier, rewritten by Steele to make it less obvious this was a Hillary Clinton conspiracy theory?) which claimed that a Russian businessman was involved in the Podesta/DNC hack. He's claiming that Buzzfeed, therefore, defamed him, by publishing allegations they didn't bother to confirm.

Well, the feds indicted 12 Russians for that hack -- and this Russian businessman wasn't mentioned at all.

A Russian tech executive suing BuzzFeed News over the Steele dossier says he is vindicated by special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 12 Russian nationals allegedly involved in cyber attacks against Democrats.

Aleksej Gubarev, the executive, says Mueller's indictment shows he was not involved in hacks of Democratic National Committee emails, as the dossier alleges.

He has filed defamation lawsuits against BuzzFeed News, the website’s editor, Ben Smith and dossier author Christopher Steele. BuzzFeed published the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017. Steele, a former British spy, compiled the dossier as part of an anti-Trump research project funded by the DNC and Clinton campaign.

"This is a complete and utter vindication of our clients," Gubarev's attorney Val Gurvits said of the Mueller indictment.

Maybe Buzzfeed Ben should worry about his own trash-site's journalistic standards and worry less about the Daily Caller's.

Oh: Representative Ratcliffe says that Lisa Page admitted the texts she and Peter Strzok exchanged meant exactly what they seemed to mean, rather than resorting to Strzok's dishonest "By 'We'll stop it' I meant the American voter would stop it" bullshit:
