Rep Nunes cuts through the political noise, saying the FBI and Obama had to know the DNC and Clinton funded the Fusion GPS dossier. Obama’s OFA sent almost $1 million…

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Laura Ingraham Monday to discuss the stalled effort by his committee to get to the truth about much of the corruption in DC and the obstructionism by the DOJ, which continues under Attorney General Sessions.
Nunes attempts to explain the complex situation in simple terms, noting that “there are a lot of moving parts.” He says, “We still have information from Fusion GPS that we need from the bank. We still have a whole host of information that we need from the Department of Justice and FBI that we hope to begin to get tomorrow.”
Nunes says, “We are just really at the beginning of unraveling questions that we’ve been asking since March. He says, “If people really believe the FBI did not know who paid for that dossier, I’ve got a bridge to sell you. There is no possible way that the FBI did not know who paid for that dossier. And yet month after month after month…”
Ingraham interrupts to ask who paid for it. Nunes doesn’t know, exasperatedly replying, “Is it just Comey or is it the whole FBI?” Ingraham reminds Rep Nunes, “What you’re saying about the FBI there, that’s quite a charge.” He replies, “Absolutely, this is the government out of control.”
He says, “It is not okay for us to ask since March, who paid for the dossier, what did you use the dossier for? And then it comes out, only because of subpoenas to the bank and the bank was going to have to produce the subpoenas and then they cut a deal.”
“We have a whole bunch of questions for Fusion GPS,” says Nunes. “We want to know were they being paid by Russia, were they paying Russians? We’re investigating this, we need the information. We have the FBI and other agencies who either didn’t tell us who paid for the dossier or didn’t know, which would be equally disturbing. But my guess is somebody over there knew who paid for that dossier.”
Withholding a verdict as to Mueller’s future, Nunes says, “What I see is we have Fusion GPS obstructing the investigation, the Democrats obstructing our investigation and the government, the executive branch obstructing our investigation.
Ingraham asks if Obama could have known about the dossier, and details the use of a chain of entities to hide the trail of those involved in its creation, the payments going to the law firm, then Fusion, then Steele to Russia.
She left out the part of OFA, Obama’s political agitation organization, funneling $972,000 to that law firm, Perkins Coie, in April of 2016. That occurred at about the time the dossier was created. It would be out of character for the micromanaging pretend ‘president’ not to have known. He almost certainly colluded with Russia and Clinton in its production.
Nunes makes that point, saying, “I think it’s hard to believe that when ‘president’ Obama was being briefed on this dossier, that all of his intelligence people, the best intelligence agencies in the world, had no idea who paid for that information.
