Honestly, why should Rep. Devin Nunes be trusted about anything—anything at all?
Asked by a Fox News reporter whether he would inform the other committee members about who gave him the reports he viewed on the White House grounds last week, Nunes said: “We will never reveal those sources and methods.”
That includes saying he will “never” reveal information to the House Intelligence Committee that he chairs.
Nunes won’t say who signed him into the White House. Who he met with. What he looked at. What he learned. In fact, the only reason we know he was at the White House—twice—is because he was seen at the White House. After which he provided perhaps the most ludicrous series of explanations delivered by someone not named Trump, and created a cover story which he contradicted multiple times within the same interview.
Nunes could have gone straight to Trump to warn him of information. He could have been outing sources within the White House. He might have been strategizing to stall the investigation and throw out false information. We don’t know.
And not only is Nunes saying he’ll never tell the public what he’s really been up to, he’s vowing to never tell the members of his own committee.
Why would anyone trust him?
