Remove Devin Nunes from Intelligence Committee
Chairman Devin Nunes serving on Trump’s transition team should have been enough to disqualify him from participating in Congress’ Russia inquiry -- but his partisan, fraudulent conduct after the fact should seal the deal.
In fact, the only thing releasing this memo proves is that Nunes has no business anywhere near this investigation. Devin Nunes must be removed from his committee chairmanship immediately.
Why is this important?
Moments ago, and with Donald Trump’s approval, the so-called “Nunes memo” -- a cherry-picked and misleading document commissioned by House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes -- was released publicly.
We read it so you don’t have to -- and this memo is obviously a partisan hack job, meant to derail Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Donald Trump’s campaign.
It echoes far-right claims that the Russia probe is a vast Deep State conspiracy to take down Trump -- but as is now abundantly clear, this memo an obvious effort to thwart the real and necessary work to discover the truth behind Russia’s attack on our democracy, how to prevent it from happening again, and who to hold accountable.
Devin Nunes has aided and abetted President Trump’s effort to sow misinformation and distrust in the Russia investigations. Now he is leading the Intelligence Committee’s gross politicization of a grave rule-of-law matter for partisan gain.
His continued chairmanship is a damning indictment of Speaker Ryan and an affront to our values. Add your name to demand his removal today.
