Devin Nunes To Adam Schiff: You Were ‘Complicit In The Violation’ Of Carter Page’s Civil Liberties






Republican California Rep. Devin Nunes tore into Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff in a letter Sunday that suggested Schiff was “complicit in the violation” of Carter Page’s civil liberties and had “hijacked” the House Intelligence Committee.

Nunes wrote the letter, obtained by the Daily Caller, to the chairman of the committee, in response to Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report released last week. That report said FBI actions were “pretty bad” and found widespread abuse in how the bureau obtained Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to spy on Page, who worked on President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Nunes noted that “the IG’s findings of pervasive, major abuses by the FBI dramatically contradict the assertions of your memo released on February 24, 2018, in which you claimed, ‘FBI and DOJ officials did not ‘abuse’ the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump Campaign.'”

The ranking Republican member on the committee suggested that Schiff is “in need of rehabilitation, and I hope this letter will served as the first step in that vital process.”

Nunes reminded Schiff of how the congressman had consistently offered his “misguided validation of the FISA warrant” as well as touting former MI6 agent Christopher Steele’s legitimacy and the now discredited dossier that he provided to the FBI that, among other things, suggested Trump was cavorting with prostitutes in Russia.

“For example, during this committee’s March 20, 2017 open hearing, you claimed Steele ‘is reportedly held in high regard by U.S. Intelligence,’ and proceeded to read into the congressional record numerous conspiracy theories proffered by Steele, all of which are false,” Nunes wrote, adding that “this makes it clear your rehabilitation will be...

  1. James Comey also did an Emily Latella nevermind on the dossier as well. Either the Horowitz
    report prompted this mea culpa or they are seeing someing much more damaging coming from
    Barr or Durahm. This is a legal game that Democrats are famous for playing. (just ask
    Manafort or Flynn about how this game is played) Being questioned by federal agents or in
    sworn testimony, a single mistake can land you in prison if at the end of the day you
    do not correct the record.

    Every one of the shampeachment witnesses did this under cross-examination, by admitting they
    had no evidence, where not fist-hand witnesses, etc. If other known deep state players follow
    suit, you can be assured something big is coming!
