“There were concerns at the FBI that this could be Russian disinformation,” Nunes said. “Now look, let’s talk reality here. 98% of this was just made up by the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele, and other dirty actors … However, you did have people at the FBI who raised these concerns that this could be Russian disinformation.”
Nunes made the comments during a Monday appearance on Sebastian Gorka's podcast, “America First.” Watch below.
“We know they were all phony and fake Russians, but you also have this potential lead that these phony and fake Russians could be disinformation from Russians at the time time,” Nunes said. “So, where’s the investigation? Where was the investigation of Christopher Steele? Of Fusion GPS — the Clinton campaign’s racketeering outfit that loves to slander and defame people and cause them lots of harm? Where was the FBI to look into these guys and to look into whether this was Russian disinformation?”
3/ And here is why the Russia disinformation point is key: https://t.co/iUTpSNQaWL Either Steele should have been investigated or Russia disinformation should have been investigated. Neither was = Mueller was an incompetent hack.— Margot Cleveland (@ProfMJCleveland) April 14, 2020
