Remember this: Comey gave Two Briefings on Capitol Hill and Nunes wasn't in one of them

Nunes has denied there was collusion with the Russians, but he may not know or have been briefed.

There may be a reason for that. The whole post is worth a read, but I've snipped part of it. Here is a post from DailyKos.

...snip

Although it would appear that both groups were seeking much the same information, from the two radically different responses it is evident that the content of those briefings were not the same. What may have made the difference is who Comey was addressing in each briefing. He trusted those in the Senate briefing with highly confidential information but the same cannot be said for the briefing given to Nunes and Schiff.

If there was someone in that House briefing that Comey didnít trust, it was Devin Nunes. The circumstantial evidence against Nunes is certainly piling up:

*He was on Trumpís transition team which was chockablock with Russiaphiles

*As chairman of the House Intel Committee, he initially refused to investigate Trump-Russia but focussed instead on White House and agency leakers

*As directed by the White House, he told media contacts (as provided for him by Sean Spicer) there was nothing to any of the Kremlingate stories

*His apparent agreement to investigate Trump-Russia after all came shortly after his total denial of the Kremlingate stories; he should have recused himself but refused to do so

*Having agreed to investigate Trump campaign ties to Russia, he has since spent his time avoiding such an investigation and diverted his committee down the garden path of non-existent wiretaps

*Comey has given two briefings to Nunesí committee and both times the briefings were very general, whereas Comeyís briefings to Upper Chamber have resulted in tight-lipped and very worried senators.

Thus far Nunes remains on my list of GOP congressmen who are likely to be involved to some extent in Kremlingate while Chuck Grassley is in the clear.

2. Comey is a traitor

Please do not put your trust in this mother fucker. He was the tipping point for the Fascist coup. After the installation of Putin's Puppet I saw the Omerta Kiss Trumpoli gave this scumbag who was all smiles.

4. Yes, it's very intriguing. Personally, I think Nunes is dirty.

Also, it was reported that the top secret briefing Comey gave to the select Senators DID NOT include McConnell, the Majority Leader. The same meeting that left Grassley looking at his shoes and Feinstein doing all the speaking to the Press with a pained and alarmed expression on her face.
McConnell was not invited. Why not? That's shocking to me.

6. McConnell prevented Obama from exposing Russian meddling

in exchange (I believe) for his wife's appointment as transportation secretary. Threatened to call it a politically motivated investigation. That amounted to blackmail, in my opinion.

7. Yes, that was huge and I think a fatal blow to Clinton.

I think Obama didn't expose the meddling because he believed, along with most people) that she was going to win.
If Obama DID go ahead and expose their fuckery, he reasoned that it would look like partisan interference.
That, to me, was a MAJOR miscalculation with obvious devastating consequences.
What I wouldn't give for Obama to have a do-over.

5. Lots to consider here.

In the end, I wonder if the majority of Republicans will finally put their country ahead of their party
