President Trump was impeached by the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and then acquitted by the Republican-controlled Senate on both counts. Democrats and Republicans have framed the proceedings as a miscarriage of justice, but for different reasons. The President and his supporters perceive the latest impeachment drama as the culmination of a deep state coup d’etat, resulting from years of constant attempts by Democrats to find any reason to nullify the 2016 election and remove Trump from office. Recent statements from Democrats suggest that, despite their latest high-profile failure to remove the President from office, they’ll likely try again. Meanwhile, Congressional Republicans have pledged to push forward with investigations into abusive practices by the Intelligence Community. My guest today is Congressman Devin Nunes, he’s a Republican representing California’s 22nd congressional district and the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. On today’s show, we’re going to discuss the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, what Congressman Nunes discovered through his own investigation, Objective Medusa, and how this all led to Trump’s impeachment and acquittal.
