'News' Site Run By Nunes Campaign Goes Offline After Report Exposes It

'News' Site Run By Nunes Campaign Goes Offline After Report Exposes It

A new political news site called "The California Republican" is making headlines of its own in other outlets.

A spokesman for Nunes did not immediately return a request for comment.

The House Ethics Committee should really look into this.

Controversial House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is said to be spearheading the head-scratching push to construct a physical barrier in the committee's secure spaces, according to CBS News.

Just like President Donald Trump, Nunes demands that everyone in his orbit subscribe to his worldview.

Politico asked Janz what he thought about the Nunes "news site".

This latest news won't make Nunes any less polarizing, that's for sure.

Similar to Kaspersky, Huawei continues to deny any attempts at conducting espionage or stealing information. Huawei reportedly got users to write fake reviews of the handset, just so it can sell more units.

But while Politico's David Siders frames the site as offering Nunes "a way around the often unflattering coverage of his role in the Trump-Russia investigation", it's not at all clear that anyone, including Nunes, has cared enough about the site for that to be true. President Trump initially said he would release the so-called "Schiff memo" but then backtracked and said that he wouldn't declassify it unless the Democrats reworked its sensitive and classified passages.

A distinction between us and the servile Soviet citizenry is that they knew their political leaders were lying to them.

Nunes also told Bartiromo that he would like to see a properly redacted version of the Democrats' memo released to the public. We are billing his campaign for the service.

Democrats say the memo is rife with inaccuracies and cherry-picked information to trash the Federal Bureau of Investigation and cast doubt on the ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. (The FBI, for its part, vigorously objected to the release of the Nunes memo over "material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo's accuracy.") Nunes was also at the center of a weird controversy last spring, where he went to the White House with allegations about Trump transition team messages being intercepted - with information he appeared to have gotten from the White House.

Furthermore, Nunes's "online magazine" didn't do much of anything to take advantage of his moment in the misleading-memo-sun a week ago, or offer any real insight from the congressman or his inner circle when it mattered most.

Some Republican committee members were quick to declare that they knew nothing about the proposed wall.

Peter Van Buren, a 24-year State Department veteran, writes in an opinion piece for The American Conservative that the Nunes memo matters - but not for the reason you think.
