Rep. Devin Nunes Sues Fusion GPS

 

Finally, someone is fighting back against the Trump-Russia hoax. I’m not surprised that the person who’s made this decision is Rep. Devin Nunes. You can review the complaint here. Nunes is suing, “alleging conspiracy to obstruct investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.”

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to a new Fox News report showing another link between the Justice Department and Fusion GPS, the firm that compiled the campaign dossier on Donald Trump.  They also react to Sen.
