Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) doesn’t have a good poker face so he somehow manages to look guilty all of the time. But that’s probably because he’s up to his crazy eyeballs in Donald Trump’s Ukraine scandal and now it appears that he is a fact witness after the House Intelligence Committee obtained phone records from AT&T showing a flurry of phone calls between Nunes, Rudy Giuliani, indicted businessman Lev Parnas, and The Hill columnist John Solomon, the latter of whom ran propaganda-style op-eds for the website.
The report is damning, which is likely why Republicans have been obstructing the investigation.
“On the morning of May 8, Mr. Giuliani called the White House Switchboard and connected for six minutes and 26 seconds with someone at the White House. That same day, Mr. Giuliani also connected with Mr. Solomon (a columnist at The Hill) for almost six minutes, with Mr. Parnas, and with Derek Harvey, a member of Representative Nunes’ staff on the Intelligence Committee,” the report states.
Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) noted Nunes’ involvement.
“It is deeply concerning that at a time when the president of the United States was using the power of his office to dig up dirt on a political rival, that there may be evidence that there were members of Congress complicit in that activity,” Schiff said on Tuesday of Nunes’ communications, according to The Daily Beast.
Twitter users didn’t seem too surprised at Nunes’ activities.
No wonder Nunes has been so mad. Under committee rules, he would have known that Schiff subpoenaed call records for Giuliani and his associates and that it would turn up all these contacts with him. https://t.co/quzXadaLy7

Page 46: “Over the course of the four days following the April 7 article, phone records show contacts between Mr. Giuliani, Mr. Parnas, Rep. Devin Nunes, and Mr. Solomon. Specifically, Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Parnas were in contact with one another, as well as with Mr. Solomon.”

Lev Parnas’ attorney, Joseph Bondy, added: “Devin Nunes was definitely part of an attempt to gather information about the Bidens. He was definitely involved in Ukraine. He definitely had involvement in the GOP shadow diplomacy efforts in Ukraine, contrary to his claims.”

Phone records show Lev Parnas, charged with campaign finance crimes up in SDNY, having calls with Devin Nunes, Rudy Giuliani, Victoria Toensing & John Solomon. Edward B. MacMahon Jr., Parnas’s lawyer, says if Parnas got immunity, he “would be able to … fill in all the blanks.” pic.twitter.com/aL1MVE2E3K

These phone records suggest Devin Nunes may secretly have been an active participant in the scheme to get a foreign government to dig up dirt on the President’s political opponent.
If Republicans were actually upset about a secretive process they would be furious about that.

So, @DevinNunes is on the grand jury considering indicting someone for a crime, for which he is a co-conspirator. Entire time he has publicly acted like an unhinged defense attorney, while hiding the fact he is co-conspirator. He is simultaneously suing anyone who questions him.

This level of corruption doesn’t surprise anyone, especially with Nunes managing to be at the center of this entire shitshow.
