dumb fucking fuck


We feel like it was less than 48 hours ago we gave GOP Rep. Devin Nunes the coveted Wonkette first prize for being the biggest legislative shitheel of all of 2017. And that's because it was less than 48 hours ago!

Now, the next steps in Nunes's campaign to obstruct justice for Donald Trump in the Russia probe are becoming clearer, as he wants to wrap up the House Intelligence Committee's real investigation into Trump-Russia conspiracies, and instead investigate the FBI for investigating Donald Trump, whom Devin Nunes loves with all his heart. He also, according to the Washington Post, wants to write up a hit piece about "corruption" at the FBI and release it like it's a serious report from a serious Congressional committee. LOL!

Didn't Wonkette legislative hero of 2017 Rep. Adam Schiff warn us about this? Yes, he did! Doesn't Nunes seem like Russia probably has something on him too? Yep, sure does! Wonder how gross it is, allegedly.

At least one Republican is like "Slow down, buckaroo, not even I can keep up with your bullshit right now," and that Republican is Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-Stopped Clock, Twice A Day):

“I’m interested in getting access to the information and not the drama,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said last month, when Nunes began threatening contempt citations for FBI Director Christopher A. Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein in the wake of revelations that former Mueller team members had exchanged ­anti-Trump texts.

More recently, Gowdy said that his “heart would be broken” if Nunes follows through on reported plans to issue a corruption exposé about the FBI, citing concerns that issuing such a report outside the context of a comprehensive investigation of the Justice Department could prove damaging to law enforcement.

Gowdy also says he thinks Nunes is doing all this without Paul Ryan's permission, which is naughty.

Ever since Nunes unrecused himself from not actually being recused from the Russia investigation, he's been doing his own make-believe investigation into whether or not Hillary Clinton and James Comey wrote the Dodgy Steele Dossier together in the bathtub (they didn't), and leading a working group on the House Intelligence Committee to prove definitively that the FBI used the dossier as a pretense to investigate Trump, on account of how the FBI obviously hated Trump during the election season. And now, he is pissed at the FBI and Justice for failing to bow down to his authori-tah:

California Rep. Devin Nunes (R), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, wrote a letter Thursday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein accusing the Justice Department of ignoring subpoenas sent to the agency by the Intelligence Committee back in August.

In the letter dated Dec. 28, the California Republican accuses the agency of ignoring his requests for information pertaining to the Steele dossier, a dossier of unverified information linking President Trump to Russia compiled by a former British intelligence agent. [...]

"Unfortunately, DOJ/FBI's intransigence with respect to the August 24 subpoenas is part of a broader pattern of behavior that can no longer be tolerated," Nunes wrote. "At this point it seems the DOJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves."

BIG MAN. BIG, BIG MAN. (For real, though? What does Russia have on him? A video of him tongue-kissing a life-sized Donald Trump sex doll on the butt?)

Last week, Nunes VERY BIGLY ANGRILY subpoenaed a guy named David Kramer, whom John McCain sent to meet with British spy Christopher Steele in London, because Nunes seems to think Steele gave Kramer all the sources for his Dodgy Dossier. (You know how spies are always like "here is a list of my sources"!) In Nunes's mind, outing Steele's sources will prove ... something something underpants gnomes, Devin Nunes does not even know what he is doing here.

This weekend, we learned that actually the FBI's investigation into Trump's conspiracies with Russia started after campaign aide George Papadopoulos got drunk and tried to get into an Australian diplomat's pants by bragging that Russia had secret dirt on Hillary Clinton, and didn't simply start because of the Dodgy Dossier.

Which would seem to kind of negate all of the GRRR ARGH FARRRRRRRT coming out of Devin Nunes's mouth hole at the moment.

Oh well, nobody ever accused him of being the sharpest dildo in the dildo dispensary.

Shall we just give Nunes the Wonkette legislative shitheel of 2018 award in advance, or should we make him dance for it for a few more months?
