Republicans are getting scared over special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. It’s almost as if they’re complicit in a coverup. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has exhibited bizarre behavior and even broken protocol in order to defend Donald Trump but that might all come to an end, according to MSNB contributor Scott Dworkin who said that a GOP staffer informed him that she was instructed to keep her distance from Devin Nunes, his staff, and the Republican House Intelligence Committee staff. He added that they might be targets “of multiple ongoing investigations by Special Counsel Mueller’s office/FBI and the DoJ.”
BREAKING: A GOP Hill staffer just told me she was instructed today to keep her distance from Devin Nunes, his staff and the GOP House Intel Cmte staff, because it looks like they are targets “of multiple ongoing investigations by Special Counsel Mueller’s office/FBI and the DoJ.”

In February, Rep. Rooney (R-FL) said that there is an “erosion of trust, exacerbated by an ongoing ethics investigation into the ‘entire’ Republican staff” and later added that the matter was being handled by the Office of Congressional Ethics. In other words, the entire Republican staff of the House Intelligence Committee is under Investigation.
Last year, Rep. Nunes took a phone call while sharing a ride with a staffer. After the call, he switched cars without telling his team where he was going. As it happens, the unscheduled trip was to the White House, where an unnamed source provided him with information about a supposed incidental collection of Trump and his associates. He then told reporters that Trump and his associates were swept up in an “incidental collection” by US intelligence agencies.
Why would he do that? He wanted to validate Trump’s tweet at the time in which he claimed that President Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower. And there’s been zero proof of that since the claim was made in March of 2017.
If there’s anyone who acts suspicious in Trump’s orbit, it’s Nunes. It sounds like Robert Mueller and his special counsel team want to have a word with Nunes and his colleagues.
