A Republican Congressman has let loose and expressed his true feelings about President Donald Trump to Erick Erickson, a far right wing pundit. Erickson is a former Fox News contributor and was the editor of RedState. He will not identify the GOP lawmaker who is from a “very Republican” district for obvious reasons, writing the Congressman “is happy to be quoted, so long as I don’t name him.”
“If we’re going to lose because of him, we might as well impeach the motherf**ker,” the unnamed Republican Congressman we’ll call “Rep. X,” supposedly said to Erickson.
Erickson says Rep. X continued his rant, saying, “dammit he’s taking us all down with him. We are well and truly f**ked in November. Kevin [McCarthy] is already circling like a green fly circling sh*t trying to take Paul’s [Ryan] job because nobody thinks he’s sticking around for Nancy [Pelosi]. She’s going to f**k up the cafeteria again too. [Lord’s name in vain], at least I’ll probably lose too and won’t have to put up with that sh*t.”
(Speaker Ryan announced today he is retiring at the end of his term.)
“It’s like Forrest Gump won the presidency, but an evil, really f*cking stupid Forrest Gump. He can’t help himself. He’s just a f**king idiot who thinks he’s winning when people are b*tching about him. He really does see the world as ratings and attention. I hate Forrest Gump.”
The House Judiciary Committee “just might pull the trigger if the President fires Mueller,” Rep. X supposedly said. “The sh*t will hit the fan if that happens and I’d vote to impeach him myself. Most of us would, I think. Hell, all the Democrats would and you only need a majority in the House. If we’re going to lose because of him, we might as well impeach the motherf**ker. Take him out with us and let Mike [Pence] take over. At least then we could sleep well at night.”
Rep. X calls Vice President Pence “competent.”
“I say a lot of shit on TV defending him, even over this,” Rep. X tells Erickson. Erickson describes the Congressman as someone who defends Trump on Fox News and in public but obviously has a different personal opinion. The media and Democrats on Capitol Hill often say many Republican lawmakers oppose Trump in private, but won’t in public. (There are several words for that.)
“But honestly, I wish the motherf*cker would just go away. We’re going to lose the House, lose the Senate, and lose a bunch of states because of him. All his supporters will blame us for what we have or have not done, but he hasn’t led. He wakes up in the morning, sh*ts all over Twitter, sh*ts all over us, sh*ts all over his staff, then hits golf balls. F*ck him. Of course, I can’t say that in public or I’d get run out of town.”

‘We should just burn it up’ says Nunes of Mueller Report.
Devin Nunes (R-CA), who has most recently been in the news after suing a Twitter account based on a fictitious cow, has a unique take on the report prepared by Robert Mueller into Russian interference into the 2016 election: he thinks it should be burned.
“The Mueller report, we should just burn it up,” said Nunes on Fox & Friends this morning. “I mean, it is a partisan document. The Democrats are going to say, ‘Well, we need to see the underlying information.’ What we really need to see is, what was the FBI’s involvement with Fusion GPS? Who did they know about?”
“Fusion GPS was essentially the Hillary Clinton campaign,” added Nunes. “They were hired by the Clinton campaign. We need to see all that. We need to see the FISAs fully disclosed.
“I can’t imagine why they brought Jerome Corsi into this,” said Nunes. “He’s just a longtime kind of press guy. He had every right to call Julian Assange or anybody else that he wants to. Press people do that all the time. That’s part of our First Amendment rights.”
Nunes’ mention of Clinton is noteworthy: The re-emergence of Hillary Clinton in GOP talking points the last couple days has, to some signaled that Republicans will once again attempt to use her as a scapegoat going into the 2020 election cycle.
Lindsey Graham, speaking last night at Mar-a-Lago, called for a new investigation into Clinton and her involvement in the Steele Dossier. That dossier was one part of the Mueller investigation. A chant of “Lock Her Up!” started as Graham spoke about Clinton.
Nunes was part of the Trump transition team and could potentially face liabilities in the report.

Paul Ryan Falsely Claims Intelligence Agencies Determined Russian Interference Did Not Affect Election
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan broke with President Donald Trump Tuesday morning, stating that Russia did interfere in the U.S. 2016 elections – but in a gift to Trump, he falsely claimed a “year-long investigation” proved Russia’s interference did not have an effect on the outcome of the election.
“We just conducted a year-long investigation into Russia’s interference in our elections,” Speaker Ryan told reporters. “They did interfere in our elections. It’s really clear. There should be no doubt about that.”
But Ryan continued, wrongly claiming that it’s “also clear” that Russia’s interference “didn’t have a material effect on our elections.”

That is a false GOP talking point, one that even CIA Director Mike Pompeo stated, and the CIA moved quickly to correct.
The U.S. intelligence community did “not make an assessment of the impact that Russian activities had on the outcome of the 2016 election,” CNN, quoting a declassified public report issued by the Director of National Intelligence, reported.
The consensus of the U.S. Intelligence agencies is that Russia absolutely interfered in the 2016 elections, but they did not investigate if Russia’s actions had any effect on the result of the elections.
To be clear, the CIA, the National Security Agency (NSA), the FBI, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin “ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election,” and turned from seeking to “denigrate” Hillary Clinton to developing “a clear preference for President-elect Trump,” as The New York Times had reported.
On Monday, after President Trump’s disastrous performance supporting Putin over America, Ryan issued a statement stating in part: “There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders Cancels Fox News Interview After Internet Mocks Her for Being Bad at Her Job
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders cancelled a scheduled interview on Fox News after twenty minutes of intense online mockery.
Fox News had hyped on Twitter that Sanders would make an appearance with The Daily Briefing host Dana Perino, who had served as press secretary during the George W. Bush administration.
The network then deleted their tweet hyping the appearance after a brief period of intense backlash.
Perino tweeted that Sanders had “been pulled into a meeting” and would be unavailable.

Between the announcement and the announcement of the cancellation, many people mocked Sanders for not holding a press briefing and instead going on Fox News.
