Before he sabotaged the House intelligence investigation into Trump's ties with Russia, Devin Nunes received a mysterious phone call and disappeared.

Courtesy of the Daily Beast: 

Hours before the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee announced his shocking claims about surveillance of the Trump transition team on Wednesday morning, he practically disappeared. 

Rep. Devin Nunes was traveling with a senior committee staffer in an Uber on Tuesday evening when he received a communication on his phone, three committee officials and a former national security official with ties to the committee told The Daily Beast. After the message, Nunes left the car abruptly, leaving his own staffer in the dark about his whereabouts. 

By the next morning, Nunes hastily announced a press conference. His own aides, up to the most senior level, did not know what their boss planned to say next. Nunes’ choice to keep senior staff out of the loop was highly unusual.

That next morning Devin Nunes did this:
So the question to ask is who could have suddenly called Nunes that night to convince him to ditch his Uber ride, and then sabotage the investigation, and possibly his own career, the next morning?

Look I pride myself on having a fertile imagination, but I could NEVER have written a more convoluted and crazy scenario on my best day.

    Somebody said that his portfolio is completely invested in putin oil/gas stations in California called Ideal gas stations. I don't live there so not sure how true it is. Clearly he is being extorted or bribed or something.

    2. And the Russians will use their playbook to take this guy out. Five Russians grabbing him and throwing him in a car, a poisonous umbrella, or some interesting tea, a "heart" attack, or moving bathtubs with a helping crew of men in black turtlenecks.

    The behavior from Nunes is consistent with someone possibly being bribed, or threatened in some manner.
    These people have no scruples and will break the law to get what they want. They being trump and his supporters/henchmen etc.
    They are being embarrassing and will stop at nothing.

    I think Michael Flynn has already cut a deal with the FBI against Donald Trump

    There are times in every political journalist’s life when, based on limited and circumstantial evidence, he thinks he’s figured something out. For me, this is one of those times. I don’t have an inside source on this, just a pretty good gut feeling and some publicly known facts I can point to. So I’ll go ahead and make my case for why I think Michael Flynn has already cut a deal with the FBI against Donald Trump.

    Is Political Gravity Finally Sinking Donald Trump?

    By Andrew Sullivan

    Is he waving or drowning? Swimming or sinking?

    I ask this question because we’re more than two months in and the trauma has not subsided, but it has, perhaps, bifurcated. Sure, Trump still shows alarming potential as a would-be tyrant, contemptuous of constitutional proprieties, and prone to trashing every last norm of liberal democracy. But he is also beginning to appear simultaneously as a rather weak chief executive, uninterested in competent management or follow-through, bedeviled by divisions within his own party, transfixed by cable news, and swiftly discrediting himself by an endless stream of lies, delusions, and conspiracy theories. Even the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal challenged his credibility last Tuesday. They did this because, at this point, among sane people, he quite obviously has none.

    The polling, meanwhile, is brutal. Gallup puts Trump a full 21 percentage points below average for presidents at this point of their administration. Real Clear Politics’ poll of polls shows a new high in disapproval this week, over 50 percent, and a new low in approval, at 43. Gallup finds him in the upper 50s of disapproval, and in the upper 30s in approval. Even GOP-friendly Rasmussen now has his disapproval at 53. Quinnipiac sees his support among whites and men falling, and discovers that 60 percent of Americans think he’s dishonest and 61 percent say his values are different than theirs. Yesterday, Quinnipiac also found that the Republican Obamacare replacement — the first serious agenda item of the Trump era — is opposed by a whopping three-to-one margin. Money quote: “One out of every seven Americans, 14 percent, think they will lose their health insurance under the Republican plan. That 14 percent includes 27 percent of voters in families with household income below $30,000, 18 percent of working class families and 14 percent of middle class families.” Good luck with those midterms, guys.

    In Washington this week, as this shambolic health-care plan staggered, zombielike, into the House, there was a palpable sense that political gravity may, for the first time, be operational around Trump. If he somehow muscles this legislation through, he will be stuck with an avalanche of angry.

    So time to take a deep breath? I’d say a shallow one. I can see two possible scenarios that could follow a drawn-out Trump slump.

    ...Nunes was riding in an Uber vehicle with a “senior committee staffer” on Tuesday night when he received a phone call, prompting him to have the car stopped. He then jumped out of the car and vanished, leaving the confused staffer behind. Where did he go? No one knows for sure yet, and no one in his own circle saw him until the next day. But the phone call was presumably from whoever ended up feeding him the supposed Trump-Russia classified intel that night – and any authorized briefer from any intel agency would never have used such a method.

    Where did Nunes go after he abruptly exited his Uber? Did he hop the subway? Was he picked up by the person who had called him? Did he get into another Uber just to ditch the committee staffer? The Daily Beast article doesn’t say which committee the staffer worked for. But Nunes only belongs to the House Intelligence Committee and House Ways & Means Committee, and considering that this was the night before the big House Intel hearings, it’s presumable that he was out with a House Intel Committee staffer. That means he didn’t even want his own staffer from the committee he chairs to know whom he was meeting up with. But there are other odd clues here.

    Uber is trendy, but the primary reason people use it is that it’s significantly cheaper than a taxi cab. As a United States Congressman, Devin Nunes makes $174,000 per year and should be able to afford a taxi. However, Palmer Report has recently reported that Nunes – who is a farmer by trade – has one of the lowest net worths of anyone in Congress, and that around 98% of his money is tied up in a winery that does business in Russia. It raises the question of whether he may be so cash poor that he’s vulnerable to Russian blackmail or bribery – though we’ve found no specific evidence of that thus far – and whether it might help explain his bizarre self immolating role in the Russia scandal this week.

    Palmer Report is still attempting to determine which House Intel Committee staffer was with Devin Nunes in the Uber ride that night, and where they were supposed to be headed when Nunes suddenly bailed.

    Panicked Devin Nunes cancels Sally Yates public testimony on Donald Trump and Russia

    After House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes had originally announced that former acting Attorney General Sally Yates would testify during the March 20th public hearings on Donald Trump and Russia, that ended up not happening for reasons which were never explained. Now today we’re finally getting confirmation today that Yates was ultimately scheduled to testify during the March 28th public hearings – but we’re only learning this information because a panicked Nunes just called it off.

    Congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intel Committee, posted the following today: “BREAKING: Chairman just cancelled open Intelligence Committee hearing with Clapper, Brennan and Yates in attempt to choke off public info” (source: Twitter). This means that after Devin Nunes had his bizarre meltdown earlier in the week in which he shared classified information about the FBI’s Donald Trump investigation with Donald Trump, and then leaked it to the public as well, he’s now in total panicked meltdown mode.

    Until Trump Decides Otherwise, A Bloc Of House Conservatives Now Controls Government

    The House Freedom Caucus proved Friday that they cannot be run over by Donald Trump. Once Trump has finished sifting through the wreckage of his presidency, he may come to realize that he has two options left to rebuild it: Either run through the Freedom Caucus or run around it.

    Because, so long as Trump decides he wants to work squarely within a Republican framework, the Freedom Caucus, a bloc of 37 House conservatives who band together on major votes, has the power to stop legislation. And this week it showed that gumming up the works remains its objective, even with a Republican in the White House. Each concession Trump made to the recalcitrant caucus brought him no new support but further alienated the moderate Republicans he needs for a majority.

    Malcolm Nance Dismantles Devin Nunes: He Is ‘Clueless About What Surveillance Is’

    Counterterrorism expert Malcolm Nance expressed disbelief on Saturday over this week’s actions by Devin Nunes, when the GOP congressman provided Donald Trump political cover by revealing that some information about the president’s associates was incidentally collected.

    On MSNBC’s AM Joy, Nance said any incidental findings on the Trump team would have been legal and for Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, to use that information in an effort to validate Trump’s insane claim shows how “clueless” he is.

Donald Trump is American, right, but his advisors have worked with the Russians. His investors are Russian. His post-fact style is Russian and his whole idea of greatness is actually Russian.

    The committee probing the Russia scandal has erupted into open warfare

    There’s a war breaking out in the House Intelligence Committee over the unfolding Russia scandal. And in a weird way, the evident desire of the chairman of that committee to protect President Trump may only be increasing Trump’s problems.

    Today brought some new developments in the saga when Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes and ranking Democrat Adam Schiff held dueling news conferences. Nunes took what appear to be new steps to shield the committee’s investigation — into Russian meddling and possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign — from public view, and Schiff issued some scalding criticism of Nunes that has really pushed hostilities to a higher level.

    First, the background.

    It’s time for the feds to follow the Russian money

    ...Based upon what has come to light thus far, expect the FBI to be joined by Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and the IRS. They are the agencies best equipped to conduct financial investigations into any possible crimes dealing with or motivated by money — as in money laundering.

    Case in point: The Post’s March 21 article on a Ukrainian lawmaker’s release of financial documents allegedly showing that former Trump aide Paul Manafort laundered payments from the party of an ex-leader of Ukraine with ties to Russia using accounts in Belize and Kyrgyzstan.

    ...If the financial documents are accurate and, as alleged by Ukrainian lawmaker Serhiy Leshchenko, Manafort falsified an invoice to a Belize company to legitimize a $750,000 payment to himself, then the FBI and Treasury may come calling.

    Manafort, according to the New York Times, denied the allegation, stating that the ledger is forged and that Leshchenko was part of an effort to blackmail him. However, Treasury agents, the Associated Press reported , have already obtained information about offshore transactions involving Manafort in connection with a federal anti-corruption investigation into his work in Eastern Europe.

    If, during the investigation of links between Russians and Trump campaign associates, the feds come across financial transactions aimed at evading taxes on illegal income by concealing the source and amount of profit, those associated with such activities should prepare to hear the words: “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury . . . ”

    There’s plenty of ground for federal agencies to plow.

    Does Anyone In the Trump Administration Not Have Ties to Russia?

    Perhaps we’ve been asking the wrong question. It’s not so much a matter of which members of the Trump administration (and campaign) have ties with Russia and Vladimir Putin, but whether any of them don’t. The web of those who do now includes Sec. of Commerce Wilbur Ross.

    To understand the connection it is important to know that banks on the island of Cyprus have a long history of being used to launder the money of Russian oligarchs. Back in 2014 when the Russians invaded Ukraine, the U.S. Treasury Department began keeping an eye on Cyprian banks in order to recover stolen Ukrainian assets after the ouster of pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych. The AP reports that this investigation by the Treasury Department now includes former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

    Here’s where Wilbur Ross comes into the picture. According to public records reviewed by the AP, one of the banks Manafort used in that country was the Bank of Cyprus. Ross served as the vice-chairman of that bank following an investment of €400m in 2014.

      WASHINGTON — Dear Donald,

      We’ve known each other a long time, so I think I can be blunt.

      You know how you said at campaign rallies that you did not like being identified as a politician?

      Don’t worry. No one will ever mistake you for a politician.

      After this past week, they won’t even mistake you for a top-notch negotiator.

      I was born here. The first image in my memory bank is the Capitol, all lit up at night. And my primary observation about Washington is this: Unless you’re careful, you end up turning into what you started out scorning.

      And you, Donald, are getting a reputation as a sucker. And worse, a sucker who is a tool of the D.C. establishment.

      Your whole campaign was mocking your rivals and the D.C. elite, jawing about how Americans had turned into losers, with our bad deals and open borders and the Obamacare “disaster.”

      And you were going to fly in on your gilded plane and fix all that in a snap.

      You mused that a good role model would be Ronald Reagan. As you saw it, Reagan was a big, good-looking guy with a famous pompadour; he had also been a Democrat and an entertainer. But Reagan had one key quality that you don’t have: He knew what he didn’t know.

      You both resembled Macy’s Thanksgiving Day balloons, floating above the nitty-gritty and focusing on a few big thoughts. But President Reagan was confident enough to accept that he needed experts below, deftly maneuvering the strings.

      You’re just careering around on your own, crashing into buildings and losing altitude, growling at the cameras and spewing nasty conspiracy theories, instead of offering a sunny smile, bipartisanship, optimism and professionalism.

      You promised to get the best people around you in the White House, the best of the best. In fact, “best” is one of your favorite words.

      Instead, you dragged that motley skeleton crew into the White House and let them create a feuding, leaking, belligerent, conspiratorial, sycophantic atmosphere. Instead of a smooth, classy operator like James Baker, you have a Manichaean anarchist in Steve Bannon.

      You knew the Republicans were full of hot air. They haven’t had to pass anything in a long time, and they have no aptitude for governing. To paraphrase an old Barney Frank line, asking the Republicans to govern is like asking Frank to judge the Miss America contest — “If your heart’s not in it, you don’t do a very good job.”

      You knew that Paul Ryan’s vaunted reputation as a policy wonk was fake news. Republicans have been running on repealing and replacing Obamacare for years and they never even bothered to come up with a valid alternative.

      And neither did you, despite all your promises to replace Obamacare with “something terrific” because you wanted everyone to be covered.

      Instead, you sold the D.O.A. bill the Irish undertaker gave you as though it were a luxury condo, ignoring the fact that it was a cruel flimflam, a huge tax cut for the rich disguised as a health care bill. You were so concerned with the “win” that you forgot your “forgotten” Americans, the older, poorer people in rural areas who would be hurt by the bill.

      As The Times’s chief Washington correspondent Carl Hulse put it, the G.O.P. falls into clover with a lock on the White House and both houses of Congress, and what’s the first thing it does? Slip on a banana peel. Incompetence Inc.

      “They tried to sweeten the deal at the end by offering a more expensive bill with fewer health benefits, but alas, it wasn’t enough!” former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau slyly tweeted.

      Despite the best efforts of Bannon to act as though the whole fiasco was a clever way to bury Ryan — a man he disdains as “the embodiment of the ‘globalist-corporatist’ Republican elite,” as Gabriel Sherman put it in New York magazine — it won’t work.

      And you can jump on the phone with The Times’s Maggie Haberman and The Washington Post’s Robert Costa — ignoring that you’ve labeled them the “fake media” — and act like you’re in control. You can say that people should have waited for “Phase 2” and “Phase 3” — whatever they would have been — and that Obamacare is going to explode and that the Democrats are going to get the blame. But it doesn’t work that way. You own it now.

      You’re all about flashy marketing so you didn’t notice that the bill was junk, so lame that even Republicans skittered away.You were humiliated right out of the chute by the establishment guys who hooked you into their agenda — a massive transfer of wealth to rich people — and drew you away from your own.

      You sold yourself as the businessman who could shake things up and make Washington work again. Instead, you got worked over by the Republican leadership and the business community, who set you up to do their bidding.

      That’s why they’re putting up with all your craziness about Russia and wiretapping and unending lies and rattling our allies.

      They’re counting on you being a delusional dupe who didn’t even know what was in the bill because you’re sitting around in a bathrobe getting your information from wackadoodles on Fox News and then, as The Post reported, peppering aides with the query, “Is this really a good bill?”

      You got played.

      It took W. years to smash everything. You’re way ahead of schedule.

      And I can say you’re doing badly, because I’m a columnist, and you’re not. Say hello to everybody, O.K.?

    Rant of day:

    Could people PLEASE for the love of Lucifer stop posting their personal sexual details? Jesus Christ. NO ONE CARES. It's no one's business. There are great couples who have no sex. There are badly matched, unhappy couples who fuck thrice a week.

    And if youre someone who obsessed over other's sex lives, really? Why? Get a life. Buy some maturity. Grow up.

    I swear if I see one more 40 yr old post "last night was the best ever + details I will never be able to remove from my brain, I will fucking go ballistic.

      I think you have the wrong site.

    3. Maybe you should be more selective in where you hang out to do your reading.

      I somehow manage to not see such articles ever.

      And those people have every right to post whatever they want, just as you have the right to post (and Gryphen has the right to reject) your constant vicious angry tirades about anyone who doesn't do or believe or think exactly what you want them to. What a nasty piece of work you are.

    Gryphen----sorry about this, it's totally off-topic, but I just saw a video on Daily Mail that Bristol posted of her parents' new house under construction by the ocean. Surely your sources have something to say about this!

    Huh? About that "Buy some maturity and grow up crack? You might want to look into that.

    Just curious, do you know where you are? And WHY are you obsessing over other people's sex lives?

    Have I been missing some good sex stuff or did this just blow in from way out in left field?

    Paul Manafort Was Already Planning Putin Influence In Washington in 2005

    "Paul Manafort pledged to influence politics, business dealings and news coverage inside the United States to benefit President Vladimir Putin's government.”

    When news started leaking out that members of the Trump campaign, and Trump himself, were tied to the Russian Putin, there were a couple of Republicans who were not “stunned” like many Americans. In fact, Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain have been stalwarts in warning that at the rate Putin had already been interfering in Western democracies in Europe to undermine confidence in government, it wasn’t out of the realm of possibility that he was intricately involved in attacking America’s democracy.

    However, according to a report from the Associated Press, one of Donald Trump’s trusted campaign advisors, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, had been hard at work for Putin before he worked for Trump and “crafted a plan to influence American politics for a Russian oligarch aligned with Vladimir Putin in 2005. “

    The AP report stated that Trump’s Putin connection and former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, proposed a confidential strategy plan to a Putin ally in early June 2005 that he promised would “influence politics, business dealings and news coverage inside the United States, Europe and former Soviet republics to benefit President Vladimir Putin’s government.”

    In a 2005 memo to Russian oligarch and close Putin ally Oleg Deripaska, Manafort wrote:

    I can see Nunes in a pair of concrete shoes thrown in the Potomac soon.

    "So the question to ask is who could have suddenly called Nunes that night to convince him to ditch his Uber ride, and then sabotage the investigation, and possibly his own career, the next morning?"

    I'm not saying it's aliens...

    But it's aliens.
