Looks like President Trump’s detractors may be dealing with an unexpected “boomerang effect” from their own Russia witch-hunt.
Devin Nunes has a warning for the president’s enemies, and it’s simply dripping with irony.
The very people who have been screaming from the rooftop’s for Trump’s impeachment, are now the ones who need to worry.
From Washington Examiner
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said the Left’s efforts to cast President Trump as someone guilty of misconduct and subject to impeachment “has effectively boomeranged on them.”
During an exchange with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday, the California Republican said investigations into alleged bias in the U.S. government and possible abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act could place some Democrats in jeopardy.
“The Left has continued to say this is Watergate and Trump’s going to be impeached,” Nunes said, riffing off Hannity’s misgivings with Trump’s opponents who believe his campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 campaign and that Trump may have obstructed justice — two matters being looked at by special counsel Robert Mueller.
“Now this has effectively boomeranged on them,” Nunes continued. “You have at least I think half of the American people now know that the other party, the Democrats, appear like they weaponized, to some degree, the intelligence services by using the foreign intelligence surveillance apparatus in this country to go and target the opposition campaign is totally unacceptable.”

Nunes was referring to his panel’s memo, put together by the majority party, which outlined alleged FISA abuses by the U.S. government under the President Barack Obama administration to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. His comments also come after House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., subpoenaed the Justice Department for documents related to alleged FISA abuses, the agency’s investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server in 2016, and the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Nunes said he was happy his House colleague sent the subpoena, but added that they needed those documents “like yesterday.”
Nunes said if the subpoena is not honored, “We should move quickly to contempt [of Congress] and then we should move to impeachment.”
