Devin Nunes to Congress: ‘stop chasing Russian ghosts’ with Russian investigation, get ‘real work’ done

House Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes has urged Washington to stop pursuing false accusations of US President Donald Trump’s ties with Russia and concentrate on solving more pressing issues for the country.

Nunes participated in the Congressional investigation into rumored Russian meddling into the 2016 U.S. presidential election, but was forced withdraw from the inquiry, following accusations of mishandling classified data.

Speaking at the Orange County Republican Party’s annual Flag Day Salute dinner Saturday, Nunes recounted: “I said, ‘OK, I don’t think there’s any collusion here…And what happened to me? All the major papers in the country did a total character assassination on me. Why? Because I was telling the truth, that there was never any collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians.”

“I have to ask myself, Was this really an investigation in search of a crime? And I will tell you, if that’s what it ends up being, there will be a huge, huge division in this country,” Nunes added.

Nunes added that the Russian investigation has proved to be a distraction from important political issues such as repeal and replace of Obamacare: “we have to stop chasing Russian ghosts around the closet and actually get to real work.”

Nunes hinted that media should take part of the blame for the shooting at the congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia last week.

The attack didn’t surprise” him, Nunes said, because “every night there’s a news story that runs that… has something in common. It’s anti-Trump, anti-Republican, and promotes this nonsense that you’re seeing with protesters everywhere. And they continue to promote it, which continues to promote violence.”
