Haven’t seen this reported anywhere except on Lawrence O’Donnell’s “The Last Word”, forgive me if I missed a diary.
Seems that when Devin Nunes briefed the press on his
obstruction...er... visit to the White House on Tuesday morning, he let it slip that he first took the information on the alleged “incidental collection” of information on Trump’s goons... operatives to none other than the Speaker, Paul Ryan.
Larry extrapolates from that that Ryan then told Nunes to take what he’d supposedly seen to Trump at the White House. You can see it below starting at 4:40 in the video.
This means that Ryan instructed his House Intelligence Chairman to brief the very person his committee is investigating on confidential information germane to that investigation... before he’d shared it with any of the other members of the committee.
This could be classic Obstruction of Justice.
Tonight Larry further revealed that before Nunes got to the White House to speak with Trump, Trump was being interviewed by Time Magazine where he talked about the very tidbits that Nunes had been sent by Ryan to reveal to him.
But I don’t have that video yet.
What a tangled web...and all that.
Maybe Nunes, Ryan and Trump can be best bunkies in the bighouse.
