‘We should just burn it up’ says Nunes of Mueller Report.

Devin Nunes
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.
