Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said the FBI was lying to Congress about the case of the fake collusion with Russia, filed by the Democrats against President Donald Trump.
“So, I have made the statement on your show and many others publicly over the last few years that we know the FBI was lying to Congress,” Nunes told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Dec. 20.

Nunes referred to text messages from controversial FBI agent Peter Strzok, which revealed that the agency did not open an investigation into the actions of the then-alleged Trump campaign partnership with Russia.
Instead, the FBI used George Papadopoulos, a former member of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, as a justification for counterintelligence investigations, causing him harm.
“And look, I would also say it’s now clear that Papadopoulos was so mistreated, it’s just so unbelievable,” said Nunes.
He also explained that Papadopoulos was used as a “phony target,” which was not revealed in testimony before Congress.
“I mean, they’re actually—this—the FBI and DOJ in this country ought to be ashamed of themselves, mocking a target that they knew was a phony target.” demanded Nunes.
After special counsel Robert Mueller spent tens of millions of dollars on a two-year investigation against President Trump, he found no evidence of any crime to charge him with.
The Justice Department then began a review of the origin of that investigation, and many irregularities involving top FBI officials were uncovered.
Nunes insists that those responsible for the investigation that was trying to illegally remove Trump be revealed.
Although U.S. Attorney General William Barr delegated Attorney General John Durham to conduct this latest review, the results have been delayed too long, causing public concern. Several of Bartiromo’s supporters have commented.
“Now let me get this straight, the FBI can lie to the American people/congress without any ramifications BUT I can not lie to the FBI because there will be ramifications….is that correct??? Something is truly wrong with this analogy,” said MaryAnn Klem.
“The FBI must be held to a HIGHER STANDARD than the rest of us, one would think. Too bad for the REAL MEMBERS OF THE FBI who truly do their job for the few scumbags on the 7th floor that ruined the name,” she added.
And she added, “The FBI IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW and we are still waiting for justice to be served!!!”
Even further goes Bartiromo’s follower, Milton Almeida, who implicates the characters who may have been involved in this serious case.
“I’ve been predicting that the way overdue Durham report will demonstrate that, besides being a political witch hunt, perpetrated by Hillary, Obama, Biden, and the deep state, the Russia hoax was also a law enforcement conspiracy, which includes the past CIA director,” Almeida wrote.
He added, “All of them seeking something to make themselves HEROES. … Sort of the arsonist/fireman syndrome.”
