Is Devin Nunes Under Investigation?

Former House Intelligence Committee chairman and professional Trump toady, Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), has not been accused of any specific wrongdoing, but his feet are awfully close to the fire.

According to the Daily Beast, special prosecutor Robert Mueller and federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York are both investigating a breakfast event that took place before Trump's inauguration that was attended by Nunes and Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The two offices are investigating the same event for similar reasons -- they're following the money.

The breakfast event, which was first reported by The Daily Sabah, a pro-government Turkish paper, took place at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. at 8.30 a.m. on Jan. 18, 2017—two days before President Donald Trump’s inauguration. About 60 people were invited, including diplomats from governments around the world, according to those same sources.

The breakfast has come under scrutiny by federal prosecutors in Manhattan as part of their probe into whether the Trump inaugural committee misspent funds and if donors tried to buy influence in the White House. The existence of that probe was first reported by The Wall Street Journal. The Special Counsel’s Office is also looking at the breakfast as part of its investigation into whether foreigners contributed money to the Trump inaugural fund and PAC by possibly using American intermediaries, as first reported by The New York Times. Robert Mueller’s team has asked Flynn about the event, according to two sources familiar with the Special Counsel’s Office questioning.

We know -- because he has admitted as much -- that Michael Flynn was paid by foreign governments during the transition period.

Devin Nunes hasn't been accused of that, but he was a member of Trump's transition team when he attended this event alongside Michael Flynn. Nunes also did everything he could to obstruct various investigations while he was the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

I'm just sayin', if he looks and smells like a rat, he might be a rat.

    Devin Nunes always struck me as an enthusiastic Trump loyalist, but I wouldn’t have expected him to facilitate violations of federal law.

    Looks like I shouldn’t have given him so much credit.
