‘Obstructing justice on what, you jerks? Stuff that you had planted…’ Devin Nunes unloads on Trump raid

CEO of Trump Media & Technology Group Devin Nunes had a heated round table about the FBI ransacking former President Donald Trump’s home that he argued was “basically an investigation in search of a crime.”

“We have been following these charges of entrapment and bad behavior by the FBI for so many years now,” Host Maria Bartiromo stated to Nunes and former Trump administration official Kash Patel on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”

As Trump’s representative with the National Archive, Patel piped up to note that he has been in a “bureaucratic battle” for transparency on the hordes of documents Trump declassified during his tenure.

“Trump, as a sitting president, has the unilateral authority for declassification,” Patel argued. “He can literally stand over a set of documents and say these are now declassified and that is done with definitive action immediately.”

After touching on the Russiagate hoax and Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified emails, Bartiromo said it was “extraordinary that they convened a grand jury, and I’m talking about espionage charges.”

Nunes agreed that it was completely absurd that the FBI was even thinking about investigating the former president for treason.

“And they went into the grand jury looking at the president for treason as if he’s, And look, if that was the case, if he really was holding these these these documents, these so-called classified documents and documents, we even heard, you know, leaks of nuclear secrets that the president was holding,” Nunes responded passionately.

“Well, that’s preposterous!” he continued. “And if that was true, you should have sent, they should have immediately sent and made this public and sent FBI agents around Mar-a-Lago if the nuclear secrets were really there.”

“But the fact that they convened a grand jury – accuse a president – again, this look, this is the second time, this never stopped. Remember, back in 15 and 16 is when they started first saying that he was colluding with Russians and Vladimir Putin and Republicans were all colluding with the Russians. They went to a grand jury with that,” the former California congressman said.

Nunes thought the FBI’s investigation of “obstructing justice” was a ruse to justify an otherwise baseless investigation.

“So so once again, this is a continued investigation of Trump and the Republican Party. It’s basically an investigation in search of a crime. And then conveniently, they brought back the Mueller witch hunt argument that ‘Oh, my God, he’s he’s obstructing justice,’” he said.

“Obstructing justice on what, you jerks!?” Nunes exclaimed.

“Stuff that you had planted on an investigation that you basically created out of whole cloth. And I think that’s what we’re dealing with. The American people need to pay attention to it,” he concluded.
