Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) announced that very soon Americans will learn the truth about the irregularities of the false collusion with Russia case, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, at the behest of the Democrats.
“We think there are other examples of things that they did during the Mueller investigation that I think you and your listeners and the American people will be very interested to learn in the coming weeks as we start to peel the onion of what the Mueller team was really doing,” Nunes told Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs Feb. 11, among other topics.

Nunes initially referred to the questionable recommendation by four Justice Department (DOJ) prosecutors to sentence Roger Stone, a former adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, to nine years in prison as one of the examples of the irregularities arising from the investigation.
The investigation eventually defined it as false collusion with Russia, of which President Trump was accused, is currently being reviewed by prosecutor John Durham—appointed by Attorney General William Barr.
Stone was convicted three months ago of seven charges, none of which refer to collusion with Russia, which was the subject of the main investigation.
According to statements by Nunes, who is a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Stone should not have been involved in this investigation.
“Roger Stone should have never been investigated in the first place, because the dirty cops knew … that there was no collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign,” Nunes emphasized.
Nunes said that Mueller, a former FBI director, knew that there was no evidence that candidate Trump’s campaign was conspiring with the Russians.
“They set up an obstruction of justice trap, and they went after a whole bunch of people that now got sentenced. Some already served their time, and I think all of this has to come into question now,” Nunes said in the same interview about the work of the investigators led by Mueller in the controversial case.
DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz found 17 “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in his review of the beginnings of the false collusion with Russia.
Barr expressed his opinion on the results obtained by Horowitz.
“The inspector general’s report now makes it clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation into a U.S. presidential campaign on the slightest of suspicions, which, in my opinion, was insufficient to justify the steps taken,” Barr specified.
Among the irregularities at the start of the investigation was that agents had defrauded the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) court to obtain false arrest warrants in order to illegally spy on Trump’s campaign aides.
Congressional Democrats have pursued a variety of strategies against President Trump for three years, but he became politically stronger after failed attempts to remove him.
Now, the outlook among voters is broadly favorable for Trump’s re-election in the upcoming November election.
