Devin Nunes Gets Stomped By His Hometown Newspaper’s Latest Editorial Over His Involvement In Ukraine Scandal
The editorial board of the Fresno Bee, Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) hometown newspaper, tore into the Republican lawmaker in a piece written on Thursday.
The editorial board called out Nunes for his extreme loyalty to Donald Trump, which they say is harming the country.
Specifically, the editorial accuses Nunes of forsaking his oath of office as a congressman to serve as Trump’s most loyal toady on the House Intelligence Committee.
“As has been true for nearly all of Trump’s first term, Nunes has relinquished his proper role as an independent representative of Congress and has instead acted like a member of the Trump 2020 re-election team,” the editorial states.
The piece then raises concerns about Nunes’ quick defense of Trump. They note that Nunes calls any evidence against Trump a “hoax.”
The editorial board also calls out Nunes for his involvement in the Ukraine scandal and his phone calls with Rudy Giuliani.
“To advance the cause of getting at the truth, Nunes should come clean on the phone calls and tell the House what was discussed,” the editorial states. “He should also provide travel records to debunk the charge that he met in Vienna last December with the Ukrainian to get information that might hurt Biden; Nunes says he was in Libya and Malta.”
