Nunes Fires Off on ‘Dirty Cops’ Comey and McCabe

California Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, joined Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday to discuss former Trump administration national security adviser Michael Flynn, who long ago pleaded guilty lying to investigators regarding his contact with a Russian ambassador.
News had broken earlier in the day Thursday that Flynn, who’s awaiting sentencing, had fired his legal team.
Nunes pulled no punches as he described two former top officials at the FBI — Director James Comey and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, both of whom were fired — as being perfect examples of the term “dirty cop.”
That’s because both men, Nunes indicated, deliberately attempted to set Flynn up in a perjury trap.
Hannity started by noting that Flynn’s identity was “illegally unmasked” in raw intelligence materials, and suggested that Flynn needs to turn the tables and go after Comey and McCabe “for setting him up.”
“What I would say to this, Sean, is that, in the future, when you look up the word ‘dirty cop’ — if you have a fair internet and free internet — you will see the pictures of Comey and McCabe,” Nunes replied.
“These guys make Hoover look like a saint,” he added, referring to former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, who was accused of abusing his authority to go after political enemies and rivals.

Nunes then referenced a clip Hannity had played prior to the segment. In that clip, Comey told MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace how he had directed agents to casually interview Flynn in the White House in a manner that ignored and violated standard protocols.

Comey seemed to brag about how he took advantage of the incoming Trump administration.
“[I]n a more organized administration,” he said, “if the FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself to interview a senior official, you would work through the White House counsel and there would be discussions.”
“I thought, it’s early enough, let’s just send a couple guys over,” Comey added.
This flippant attitude caught Nunes’ ire.
“I had actually never seen that clip that you just played, but it is absolutely despicable that the head of the FBI would think it’s funny and cute to send over these FBI agents to go and interview the national security adviser for the president of the United States, and then they walk out of there and say, ‘look, we don’t think the guy’s lying.'”
“But instead, what do you do? You double down,” he added. “And closing with this, let’s not forget the biggest leak of all the leaks was the leak of General Flynn, the incoming national security adviser for the president of the United States, talking to the Russian ambassador.”
Hannity interjected to ask, “That’s a crime, isn’t it?”
Nunes replied, “It is an absolute crime,” and lamented that “nothing was ever done” to address what he characterized as the “biggest leak in U.S. history.”
Following a moment of commentary from investigative reporter Sara Carter about the recent developments and genesis of the Flynn case, Hannity tossed it back to Nunes and asked him for a “preview of coming attractions in the days to come.”
“Well, there’s clearly many problems at the State Department that we still are waiting to get to the bottom of, and I would just add that I don’t want people to forget, the ‘dirty cops’ were so busy looking at everything but themselves — don’t forget, they also leaked transcripts of the president talking to the Australian prime minister and the Mexican president,” Nunes said.
“I mean, can you imagine this?” he added.
“These massive transcripts getting aired out for the whole public to see and in the meantime, what are they doing? They’re actually investigating the president … instead of investigating themselves.”
Nunes has been doggedly digging for some time now to get to the bottom of exactly what transpired during the Obama administration’s failed efforts to block Donald Trump from winning the presidency, then undermine and subvert his incoming administration.
The FBI may have forced Flynn into a perjury trap — thus discrediting him and forcing him out of the administration — but that was only a small part of the overall scheme.
Despite incredible obstruction from Democrats and foot-dragging from bureaucrats in response to Nunes’ efforts, he’s helping the American people put together the puzzle, one piece at a time.
