I shit you not, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) is reportedly planning to build a pillow fort in the committee's secure room so Democrats can't copy his answers to the big test.
From CBS News:
In a sign of increasing partisan hostilities, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee plan to construct a wall – a physical partition – separating Republican and Democratic staff members in the committee's secure spaces, according to multiple committee sources. It's expected to happen this spring.
It's an open question just how ridiculous one must be for fellow Republicans to call you out, but we may have reached that point.
"I'm not part of that decision," said Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas. "You've got to talk to Devin. I don't know what they're trying to do one way or the other."
"I swear to God I didn't know that," said Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Florida, when asked about the plan. While acknowledging a wall might not be constructive for the committee's work, he said, "The level of trust and the level of everything down there is – it's poison. It's absolute poison down there."
This reads like a story from The Onion, but I promise it isn't.
