In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Nunes to Recommend Criminal Charges Against Mueller Prosecutors

According to the Washington Examiner:

A leading Republican said he will make a criminal referral to the Justice Department concerning special counsel Robert Mueller’s case against Trump adviser George Papadopoulos in connection to Russia “dirt” tipster Joseph Mifsud. 

Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, signaled his intentions on Fox News on Monday, claiming newly released FBI interview notes known as 302s show that Mueller’s prosecutors misled the courts about what Papadopoulos told them about Mifsud, the mysterious Maltese academic who was central to the Trump-Russia saga. 

“Remember the whole story that Papadopoulos needed to be really treated badly and sentenced to some time because he really stopped the FBI from being able to find Joseph Mifsud?” Nunes asked Laura Ingraham. “Well, it ends up that’s not true. That’s not what the 302s say. The 302s actually say that Papadopoulos was actually trying to help the FBI, and they’re the ones that said that Mifsud was going to be in the United States.” 

The California congressman added that “the lawyers that wrote that to the court, that recommendation to the court, they need to be held accountable,” and “we’re scrubbing through all of these 302s, and we will be making some type of criminal referral.”
