George Conway Goes After ‘Pure Garbage’ Nunes For Trying To Undermine Impeachment Hearings
During this week’s public impeachment hearings, all Republicans have been trying to do is undermine the investigation and claim it to be a giant waste of time.
On Tuesday, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) used most of his opening statement calling the media “puppets of the Democratic Party” and questioning the motivations of the whistleblower.
“If you watched the impeachment hearings last week, you may have noticed a disconnect between what you actually saw and the mainstream media accounts describing it. What you saw were three diplomats, who dislike the President’s Ukraine policy, discussing second-hand and third-hand conversations about their objections,” Nunes began. “Meanwhile, they admitted they had not talked to the president about these matters, and they were unable to identify any crime or impeachable offense the President committed. But what you read in the press were accounts of shocking, damning, and explosive testimony that fully supports the Democrats’ accusations.”
“If these accounts have a familiar ring, it’s because this is the same preposterous reporting the media offered for three years on the Russia hoax. On a near-daily basis, the top news outlets in America reported breathlessly on the newest bombshell revelations showing that President Trump and everyone surrounding him are Russian agents. It really wasn’t long ago that we were reading these headlines,” he continued.

Nunes’ opening statement did not sit well with conservative attorney George Conway, who called Nunes and his statement “pure garbage.”
“Nunes is an utter disgrace,” he said. “His statement, and he, are pure garbage.”
Nunes is an utter disgrace. His statement, and he, are pure garbage.
