WATCH: Former House Intel Chair Accuses AG Garland of ‘Blocking’ Durham from Bringing Charges Against Russiagate Officials

Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on Friday accused Attorney General Merrick Garland of ‘blocking’ Special Counsel John Durham from bringing charges against officials implicated in the Russiagate scandal.


“Something else going on with Durham,” Nunes said. “He has put systematically the FBI on trial here. He has showed us that there were so many people that were not just working for the Clinton campaign and the DNC. They also happen to be working for the FBI or later after the fact. They start to work for the FBI when they know that they’re actually liars… and they’re not credible.”

“So, I think what’s happening here, that Durham is being blocked, and I don’t say this lightly,” he added. “He is being blocked by somebody within the Department of Justice, or he cannot bring the charges that should be brought right now. And those are charges of conspiracy, of lying to Congress, misleading Congress, defrauding the government…”

“He has probable cause, how…” Nunes said.

“Could he possibly be blocked?” Hannity asked.

“I just don’t see how he hasn’t been able to bring very basic charges,” Nunes said. “I mean, there are so many people that simply lied to Congress and misled Congress.”

Nunes also argued that people have to “go to jail” to restory trust in the FBI. Read more
