House Intel chair: Trump investigation ‘almost like McCarthyism’
David Siders, Politico, Feb 26 2017
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, responding to calls for an independent investigation into contacts between Trump associates and Russia, told reporters Saturday at the California Republican Party’s spring convention in Sacramento:
This is almost like McCarthyism revisited! At this point, there’s nothing there. Once we begin to look at all the evidence, and if we find any Pindostani that had any contact with Russian agents or anybody affiliated with the Russian government, then at that point we’ll be glad to subpoena those people before the House and let the legislative branch do its oversight, and then we would recommend it over to the appropriate people. But at this point … we can’t go on a witch hunt against the Pindo sheeple, any Pindo creeple who have not had any contact, just because they appeared in a news story!
Nunes’ remarks came after Darrell Issa called for a special prosecutor to oversee the investigation.
