Nunes 'Source' Was A "Whistleblower-Type", Ryan Says

Tyler Durden's picture

As the imbroglio within the House Intel Committee continues with Democrats refusing the listen to the 'message' without knowing who the 'messenger' was, Speaker Ryan provided a little more color on the source of Devin Nunes' information about incidental surveillance of President Trump’s team.

As The Hill reports, Ryan said Thursday on “CBS This Morning" that:

"[Nunes] had told me that a whistleblower type person had given him some information that was new, that spoke to the last administration and part of this investigation,”


“What Chairman Nunes said was he came into possession of new information he thought was valuable to this investigation and he was going to go and inform people about it.”

We wonder what Ryan's definition of a "whistleblower-type" is?

Ryan also said he did not urge Nunes to inform Trump of his findings, saying he told him to include it in his committee's probe of Russia’s election interference.

“He didn’t have the documents, so I didn’t,” Ryan said when asked if he saw Nunes's physical evidence. "He was going to brief everybody.”

Of course, 'whistleblower' or not, Democrats will refuse to accept the facts in the new information because it just does not fit their narrative. Is anyone surprised that multiple Democrats (and one Republican) have demanded that Nunes recuse himself (or resign) and are even beginning a probe into Nunes' connections? Govern the bloody country already!!

So wait, the Democrat-Socialist-Islamist-Fascists won't listed to whistleblower info re; Trump getting spied on without knowing who the source is, but they'll listen to it all day long re; what is going on inside Trump's White House without knowing the source?  

I fucking hate these people.

Classic Reality.  Just a page out of the libtards playbook.  Deny that which is bad for me and exaggerate that what is bad for you.

Every liberal I know operates this way.

Unless, of course, it is an "unnamed source" or "senior official who wants to remains anonymous"... then all checks go out the window.

Republican:  Get shelter, the North Koreans have launched a nuke at us and its on our radar coming at us!

Democrat:  Until you tell me the source of the info I don't believe you.


Fucking liberals, they are blind because they want to be. They won't look at the evidence because they don't care about the evidence...all they want to do is discredit and bury the messenger.

Because RELIGION demands adherence to DOCTRINE.


Liberalism is the lefts counterfeit of Christianity and it is NO LESS a religion for many of them.


Not attacking Christians, many of you are legit and by that I don't mean "well meaning".


The Roman Catholic Church is not Christian FYI and is pretty much the lefts religion now as well.

Not sure why you got downvoted.  Statism is a belief system, just like religion.  In spite of the state being the greatest murderer of all time, people persist in believing that the state can be trusted.  It's unfathomable, but it is so nevertheless.

I am coming to believe that religion, like statism, is a mechanism of population control promulgated by the sociopaths in order to furnish public support and cover for their mass murder, looting, and so on.  Christinaity has largely grown up and become much less aggressive.  I am quite thankful that it did so before it acquired nuclear weapons.  But regarding Islam, a 7th century school of thought which observably is largely stuck there, and also followed by hundreds of millions of low-IQ north Africans who are living a 16th century lifestyle; if you are willing to drive a truck through a crowd of civilians "because Islam", imagine them getting nuclear weapons?

I can't even speak with liberals anymore. They have reached a level of brain dead that I simple cannot stomach. They refuse to do anything, right or wrong. I could present legislation stating that every American will be cured of all disease and they would vote against it.

Looking forward to the debt ceiling debate where they all get magically fiscally conservative and the GOP turns into big spenders. 

I hate politicians.  If there is a revolution, I hope they start with the politicians, then to the bankers, then to the class action and tort lawyers.

Such a bill would be a jobs killer. Of course they'd vote against it.

So let me make sure I understand this. This Democrats---and a few Repubs---will accept without question the truthfulness of 17 intelligence agencies, based solely on "high confidence" that Trump colluded with the Russian government.

They will not, however, under any circumstances believe that the Trump organization was targeted to obtain information during the election.

Got it.

Hypocrisy rules.

It would take a hot saw with a diamond blade to slice through this hypocrisy.

What the fuck is a "whistleblower type"? You are assuming Ryan is telling the truth.

Devin Nunes will be an Absolute Hero that history will remember or an Absolute Zero.  There will be no middle ground on this one.  I really hope he has the goods because this will force a complete rethink of "Pathetic W's" stazi'ish data collection program.

The source is protected even if he is wistle blower, the committee offers close hearing. Can republican trust the anonymous wistle-blower who claimed to have underage sex with Trump? So why should they trust him.

The libturds have a track record of outing whistleblowers, from this committee.

Finally, someone with a clue.

There are 22 members of the House Intelligence Committee....each of whom have staff.

So, we already know for a fact that members of the various intelligence agencies are prone to lying to Congress when it benefits them.

A whistle-blower gives Nunes highly classified info related to testimony he plans to solicit from senior members of the Intelligence community.  Nunes wants to ask questions in a closed door session so there is no bullshit about them not being able to provide answers related to classified matters in public.

Right now, Comey, Clapper, etc know only one thing - Nunes has info.  They don't have any idea what he knows, therefore they don't know when he may catch them in a lie.  They also know that Trump has been briefed by Nunes.

Who in their right mind believes that if Nunes shares this info with the the Committee that this info will remain secret to those being called to testify?  22 members, plus staff equals a whole lot of potential leaks, and would allow those summoned time to prepare a stronger defense.  

As long as Nunes stays quiet, he has them by the balls.  This is why the Schiff and the other Democrats will not sign off on a letter compelling Conmey to testify in a closed door hearing.  This is from a Reuters article:

By Wednesday morning, the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election had all but stalled, with the committee's Republican chairman blaming Democrats — and vice versa — for the impasse.


"It appears like the Democrats aren't really serious about this investigation," Rep. Devin Nunes, the committee's chairman, told NBC.

Nunes said Democrats had not signed a letter inviting FBI Director James Comey to testify before the committee in a closed session and had not provided their witness list to the committee's majority.

"We always want to keep the committee bipartisan," Nunes said. "But at the end of the day, we're going to do an investigation with or without them, and if they want to participate, that's fine, but the facts of the matter are pretty clear."

They are all scared shitless about what Nunes may have learned, and how he may entrap them in false testimony.

When can a whistle blower be prosecuted and when can they be protected? Snowden and Manning (and I ) would like to know.

The Democrats and the deep state are intent on not permitting any governing to take place -- it's all about taking down Trump.  Day in, day out.  Day in, day out.  I'm afraid our country has become something worse than a banana republic and a cheap B-grade spy novel, at the hands of the Democrats, liberal media, and deep state.

Governing starts with the President and the two majority leaders in Congress.

If they're weak and not aligned, then this is the chaos and mess you get.

The Swamp looks as deep and lively as ever. Tweets won't change that.
