Nunes: obstructing justice

“Everything we’ve spoken about here this morning in the first 20 minutes is of critical, national importance. There’s no doubt about it: The Iran tweet, Carter Page, the FISA warrants. But right up there is the corruption of the process that has taken place in the House of Representatives over the past 18 months with Paul Ryan, Republican Speaker of the House, allowing–and in some cases encouraging–Devin Nunes to carry on a concerted and consistent effort to obstruct justice using a House committee,” says Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a conversation with host Joe Scarborough in reference to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and other House Republicans’ continued attempt to undermine the Trump-Russia probe, following the Justice Department releasing the FISA documents of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, and the president threatening Iran on Twitter.
