Nunes Calls Comey, Rogers For "Closed Session" After Finding "Concerning Info" In Intel Reports

Tyler Durden's picture

Last night we highlighted a Fox News story which suggested that Devin Nunes expected the NSA to deliver a "smoking gun" which would prove that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, as early as today.

Moments ago, Nunes fanned that speculation by holding an impromptu press conference announcing that he'll call both FBI Director Comey and NSA Director Rogers before a closed session of the House Intelligence Committee to discuss topics which "they couldn't answer in a public setting."

Here is Nunes's full statement:


And some early takeaways:

"There are just questions that we have for Dir. Comey and Adm. Rogers probably that they couldn't answer in a public setting."


Nunes also revealed that President Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, has volunteered to testify before the House Intelligence Committee on his alleged connections to Russia. 

"We thank Mr. Manafort for volunteering and encourage others with knowledge of these issues to voluntarily interview with the committee."

Nunes continues to decline requests from the press to reveal his sources...


But did confirm there was "no wiretapping of Trump Tower; That didn't happen"


This follows Nunes's appearance on Fox News last night in which he declared he had an obligation to raise issues he's discovered about the unmasking of Americans' names during serveillance.

@DevinNunes on "incidental" surveillance revelations: I had a duty and obligation to tell the President.


“What I saw had nothing to do with Russia. This has nothing to do with the Russia investigation.”


“The lack of a leak investigation is quite concerning. We need to make sure that these leaks are being tracked down.”


I have information that indicates Americans’ names were unmasked during surveillance.


“Clearly when I see a problem, I’m going to point it out.”


“Names for sure if they’re picked up in any incidental collection of any kind, they should be minimized.”


Meanwhile, proving that Nunes may actually be on to something here, WaPo has quickly called for an immediate investigation into his behavior.

I can't wait until TRUMP is vindicated. Watching that guy Rachel Maddow....and that woman Chris Hayes is so much fun when they try and spin this stuff.  Should be a great day no matter what.  When Dems Cry....We win.

...before offering Nunes a round trip ticket to pedo island, of course (executive stay in the room with the most hidden video cameras).

This is when Nunes says "OK guys is there anything you may of forgotten or couldn't say before that you wish to say now?" Using the fear of the unknown to see if he can get one of them to come "clean" before exposing them as either incompetent or rouge. They don't know what he has, they don't know what damage it can do and they don't know if he is bluffing or not.

Lawlessness. Question is, what, if ever, will it take for someone to be arrested.

The president & bar has been set so high among these Lawless Criminals that I doubt anyone for the rest of our lives will ever be arrested for anything.

Sessions is probably still dealing with the termite infestation at the DoJ - ditto Pompeo at the CIA.

Questions for Comey and Rogers?

In closed session?

You'd think that Trump would want his own people instead of Obama appointees at the FBI and NSA.

As president Trump has a perfect right to his own people.

Thank the gentlemen for their service.

That way there is no need for further questions.

Is this development going to make Watergate look like a children bedtime story magnitude and complexity wise?!

Yog Soggoth's picture

I was always taught that Nixon was a villian especially for the gold standard, but then I found out some other things. He might have started as deep state and been crooked , but he went rogue, and they took him out. Remember Hillary was fired from Watergate. Make no mistake about it,they are trying to get rid of Trump in any way possible, but they have to create the problem, which they have a playbook for, just like in high school football. Right now it is at Hail Mary in the beginning of the first quarter. Defence has stopped them. What play is next?

What kind of 'truth' exactly that these clowns think the public can't handle???

The KIND OF TRUTH I wanna see is for TRUMP to accept the intelligence finding that Israel did 9/11.

This is the kind of truth they can't handle:

Biggest link dump I have ever seen.  Over 5000 pedogate links, all categorized in one place.  Tick tock, kiddiefuckers...


In other news, Obama is now in Tahiti, without his family, for at least a month.  He's paying $13,000 / night to stay at Marlin Brando's private island.  Tahiti just happens to be a non-extradition country.  Hard to tell whether it is related to wiretapping, pedogate, or one of the thousand other acts of treason, corruption, abuse of power and Roman-style depravity which were the hallmarks of his administration.

Better watch what you hope for... His 'own people' is likely to result in Jared Kushners BFF's Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, & Jerry Seinfeld

Not that easy with so many agencies. Trump could fire everyone, but he would lose a lot of good guys that he needs. Now some people are finding out why we have so many agencies tasked with the same resposibility, obfuscation.

Isn't it a fact that because this is in the news (on ZeroHedge) that this call was ALSO leaked?

Good question.  Guess if this is no longer a Russian investigation he can put himself back on the case.

I think he is in the Bridal Suite on PEDO Island.  Sessions I thought would have been a decent pick, now no.  Time to dump Sessions, and put in Cruz, no sarc intended.  You need a rabid animal in that spot even the brown clown knew that.

BREAKING RIGHT NOW  Email Pres. Trump asking him to get "Dennis Montgomery, CIA/NSA Contractor Whistleblower testimony.  Larry Klayman, attorney has gone through all the legal channels with the survelliance testimony proving that; John Brennan, Clapper and James Comey knew about the spying on Trump, order by Obama!!!!  James Comey perjured himself at the hearing!!

 Larry Klayman letter to Dennis Nunes         Larry Klayman interviewed on AJ show today as well.

Need to let President know that We Americans have seen the letter requesting review of 48 drives with tons of whistleblower information that Dennis has recorded with the DC field office of FBI.  Dennis Montgomery has a brain anerism(sp) but has recorded his testimony proving DJT's tweets were right on target.

Godspeed with your emailing the Whitehouse!

Doubleguns's picture

+1000 for number 21.   


For those who do not know. FBI fired 2 shots, lied about it. stole the rifle shell cases that would have proved it, and lied some more to cover up the theft of evidence. They mention one shooter but anyone who knows anything about snipers knows they use bolt action guns and one shooter could not have fired two shots nearly simultaneously. Two shooters means it was intentional.

But, but....Lee Oswald managed it!  Three shots, almost simultaneously.  And he wasn't even a sniper.

Does Sessions have any balls... to be a curator of law?

Mareka's picture

Supporters of the Left will be un-phased.

It will be spun by the MSM as proof that there was so much collusion with Russia that the hero Obama was compelled to order surveillance.

It is becoming clear that the whole "Russia hacking election" crap was manufactured as cover for when the surveillance operation was uncovered.

Obama knew it was done and knew that a President Trump would learn about it and needed to get ahead of it.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall.  This is definitely interesting.

I've seen this and visited their website. If this is genuine, this is a very big deal. So, why is it not on all the blogs and some of the MSM? It makes me wonder, is this genuine?
