On this edition, a wide ranging interview with Representative Devin Nunes (R – CA22), the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee and its Chairman from 2015-19.

Among the topics discussed: The Steele Dossier and the current state of the Durham investigation, the politicization of the Intelligence Community and the Department of Justice, the readiness of our military and the aftermath of the January 6th riot at the Capitol.

Republican Rep. Devin Nunes has been in the middle of Trump wars on Capitol Hill. In this podcast, we discuss some scenes from my new book, Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment’s Never-Ending War on Trump, in which he played a prominent role. Like, what happened when Republicans took over the secret room where Democrats were conducting their secret impeachment inquiry? What about Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman? What was his relationship to the whistleblower? And did Nancy Pelosi really threaten to impeach President Trump again, right away?

Impeachment, the Horowitz report, FISA, battling the FBI, suing CNN, trolling Adam Schiff for getting so much of it wrong — Devin Nunes has a lot to talk about. He goes into detail about how he discovered the FBI’s abuses during the Trump-Russia investigation, and how he faced obstacle after obstacle in his work to make them public. Then, after the Mueller report came out, did he foresee Democrats turning on a dime to impeach President Trump over Ukraine? (Spoiler alert: No.) All that and more in a wide-ranging discussion with the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee.

In his debut podcast, Washington Examiner Chief Political Correspondent Byron York sits down with Devin Nunes to discuss the status of the House Intelligence Committee investigation into collusion, why the FISA applications ought to be declassified, when and if the the Mueller Report will be issued, and life in the minority.

This week, noted author Rob Long (come on, buy his book!) is back on the big show, so we booked a guest he’d have a lot to chat about with, California Congressman Devin Nunes. We talk collusion, Russia, Mueller, all the good stuff. Also, Bush the elder says the President “is a blowhard,” are entitlements bad for the nation’s health?, and Steve Martin’s King Tut is racist. Well, at least at Reed College it is.
