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!!
