Nunes Busted For Hiding Key Evidence In Russia Probe, Dems Will ‘Turn It Over To Mueller’
As more information on the ongoing Russia investigation is revealed, Donald Trump continues to grow worried. On Thursday, his former “fixer” Michael Cohen turned on him yet again by agreeing to a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller.
Following the Cohen bombshell, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) appeared on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” where he told host Nicolle Wallace that outgoing House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been hiding key evidence from the investigation in “the basement of the Capitol.”
“We believe, buried in the basement of the Capitol, at the House Intelligence Committee, are pages of lies from a number of witnesses particularly in the Trump family, Trump campaign, the Trump business, that Devin Nunes has protected every time that [ranking member] Adam Schiff and my Democratic colleagues have sought to turn them over to Mueller,” said Swalwell.
“So, has anyone other than Don Jr. and the Trump family testified before the House Intel Committee?” asked Wallace.
“Yes, dozens,” said Swalwell. “Most folks involved with the campaign, the business, and in the family have testified, and we’ve seen multiple contradictions. And we tried to test their stories, that’s what you do in an investigation, you want to corroborate or contradict by bringing in outside evidence. Cell phone records, bank records, travel logs. And every time we tried to do that, to make sure we’re not just taking them at their word, we were blocked. And we thought the best way to at least test their stories would be to send it to Mueller, and we were blocked from doing that as well.”
