Republican California Rep. Devin Nunes made a stunning claim on Fox News Monday.
“Democrats were trying to get information from Russians to use against the Trump campaign.”
“We know exactly who was getting information from the Russians. It was the Hillary Clinton campaign —
they were getting information from the Russians, dirt on Trump to use in a campaign. That’s the very thing that for a year and a half we’ve been trying to investigate whether the Trump campaign was getting dirt against Hillary Clinton from the Russians. We have no evidence of that.”
“But yet here we have another example, even if the story is not, you know, completely accurate, we know that the Democrats were trying to get information from Russians to use against the Trump campaign.” (RELATED: President Trump Will NOT Approve Release Of Democrats’ House Intel Memo)
Nunes has also previously said that President Obama is responsible for the threat of Russia. He told a crowd at CPAC last month, “So who created this Russian threat? Who? It was the last administration that put us in this position.” (RELATED: Devin Nunes Reminds Everyone How Obama Is Responsible For The Russian Threat)
