Musical Chairs – House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes Steps Aside – Mike Conway Moves To Chairman…

The DC pantomime continues today following a VERY FAMILIAR UniParty pattern. Once you see the strings on the marionettes it’s impossible to go back to a time when you didn’t see them.   Do not lose any of your peace over this. The DC UniParty is as predictable as the sunrise.  Fugheddaboudit, and go MAGA.

There was/is never going to be an outcome of significance to the DC pantomime being conducted in front of the capitol building’s House Intel Committee Potemkin village and visitor center.  It’s a show, a pretense, a charade, complete with scripts and roles to be played etc., countermeasures deployed.

Viewers and voters will tire of it. Just like the VA scandal; just like Fast and Furious; just like Benghazi; just like the IRS hearings; and the remaining visible corruption simply melts back into the swamp to reconstitute for the next public event du jour.

Left-wing activist groups ‘Democracy 21’ and ‘Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington’ filed a lawsuit accusing House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes of ethics violations following Nunes’ public statements about President Trump and his transition team being targets of intelligence community surveillance by the Obama administration.

The House Intelligence Committee is currently conducting an investigation into Russian interference with the U.S. 2016 election.  As a result of the ethics complaint, and subsequent investigation, Chairman Devin Nunes has temporarily stepped aside from the committee’s probe.  Representative Mike Conway (TX) will now take the role of Chairman until such time as the ethics review has completed.

Devin Nunes Statement:

“Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics. The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.”

“Despite the baselessness of the charges, I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan Statement:

“Devin Nunes has earned my trust over many years for his integrity and dedication to the critical work that the intelligence community does to keep America safe. He continues to have that trust, and I know he is eager to demonstrate to the Ethics Committee that he has followed all proper guidelines and laws.

In the meantime, it is clear that this process would be a distraction for the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in our election. Chairman Nunes has offered to step aside as the lead Republican on this probe, and I fully support this decision. Chairman Mike Conaway, a senior member of the Committee, will now lead this investigation in the House. I am confident that he will oversee a professional investigation into Russia’s actions and follow the facts wherever they lead.”

Interim Chairman Mike Conway Statement:

“I have been a member of the House Intelligence Committee for over eight years now, and it is a responsibility I take with the utmost seriousness. My profession as a CPA and auditor has taught me to be objective and methodical, and that is how I intend to help lead this investigation. I am confident that Ranking Member Schiff and I will be able to work together to conduct an effective, bipartisan investigation.

“I must emphasize that this is a temporary position- Chairman Nunes has my full support, and I am confident these charges levied by outside activists will be proven false. I thank Speaker Ryan and Chairman Nunes for entrusting me, along with Representatives Rooney and Gowdy, with this matter of critical importance to our national security.”

    When I first heard this news, I was so upset. I thought to myself, oh no now what the hell is this bull you know what. I have come to the conclusion, this is strategic posturing for Nunes to concentrate on the rice and obama side of this mess. I hope so. This Conway guy has been in congress a long time. Gowdy is a big talker, he is like a thunderstorm that builds up all day, then just goes around and does not even make the ground wet. Schiff the shiftless is a snowflake spy.

          Yours is the first comment I’ve3 seen that is even close to what I’ve been thinking. Now, keep in mind that I’ve justly been called naive, but my thoughts:
          Gowday “hasn’t done anything” because Congress does not file charges. That is the responsibility of the DOJ. Keep in mind that it was absolutely impossible to get charges filed by Holder and/or Lynch. Sessions has barely been approved as AG. I see him “getting his ducks in a row” for a guaranteed conviction…rather than going off half-cocked.

    Behghazi Dad’s phone scrubbed of press and congressional contacts:

    “After an interview with NRA Radio, Woods noticed that his contact list in his phone was smaller than it used to be, he said. “Every one of the media people, whether it had been Hannity or Fox News or whatever, all of those contacts had been scrubbed and then, all of the contacts that I have made with congressmen and senators–every one of those had been scrubbed.”

    Analyst told him: “It would have been very easy for someone to erase all of your contacts, but they wanted to give you a message that ‘We are listening to you. We are watching you and there are certain people, namely, media and congressmen and senators, that we don’t want you talking to anymore.”

    Someone on Treehouse yesterday recounted that his phone standby time had fallen from 11 to 6 hrs (or something) and an analyst verified that his microphone was turned “always on” and there were lengthy 2-way transmissions in the middle of the night.

      • and this I believe is why Nokia hired Stephen Elop and didn’t fire him before he managed to run their mobile phones division to the ground. Nokia was the biggest mobile phone producer in the world and the inventor of smartphones too, not Apple like Americans sometimes think. They were running their smartphones on Symbian and were developing Meego, a Linux-based OS. Elop allowed one Meego device to be launched, which won all kinds of awards for best design and best phone. The 2nd device which was already in production was never launched as Elop announced there would never be another Meego device launched by Nokia as long as he was the boss.

        Meego developers started their own company Jolla and developed Meego further into Sailfish OS. It’s really nice (I’m actually writing this on Jolla Sailfish OS phone) and it runs both Sailfish and Android apps. But instead of fighting head to head against the American OS’s Android and iOS as an in-house OS of the biggest smartphone producer, it’s now a small scale operation developed by a small company with its share of touch and go financial situations and a very tiny market share of the mobile phones market.

        I’m convinced US Deep State threatened Nokia that they’d destroy all of their businesses if they didn’t stop Meego. Nokia is more open source minded and has privacy and users’ wishes high up on their list of priorities. They wouldn’t have wanted to build NSA backdoors to their phones and Deep State couldn’t allow a safer alternative to US smartphones to exist in big quantities.

        Why am I so convinced of this? Because a few years ago it was made public that CIA had done a similar thing to another Finnish big company in the 1980’s. Research the story of the Mir deep sea submarines. I think I’ve seen an English translation of the interview Tauno Matomäki gave about the real reason why Rauma-Repola Oceanics never produced anything else after Mir 1 & 2 and why there are still no other submarines which can dive as deep as the Mirs produced in the 1980’s.

    Michael Kinsley famously said that “a gaffe is when a politician tells the truth.” Kevin McCarthy admitted that the Benghazi panel had the political purpose to undermine Hillary Clinton, and the truth is that all Congressional inquiries are political.

    The Congressional investigation into Russian hacking has several political purposes.

    The clear political purpose of the Democrats is to undermine the legitimacy of Donald Trump. Nothing will come of that since there is no evidence of collusion. But the “From Russia with Love” angle puts him on the defensive and distracts from his agenda.

    The political purpose of the Republicans is to counter the Democrats by making the probe about unmasking and leaks of classified information. Nothing will come of that since DC runs on leaks.

    Chairman Nunes then went on a frolic of his own, the political purpose of which was to provide political cover for the President Trump’s early morning tweets that President Obama had him wiretapped. This frolic was undertaken at the behest of Ezra Cohen-Watkin who apparently could not get his “bombshell” evidence taken seriously within the White House itself.

    This was because the grownups in the White House we’re trying to tamp down on the tweets since that story was seen as harming the President. Public opinion has concluded that those tweets were untrue when they were first tweeted so it doesn’t really matter if something else comes out now.

    But Cohen-Watkin was not to be dissuaded and did an end around his superiors at the White House using Nunes. It looks like the White House counsel’s office was correct — the result is another ignominious recusal by a Trump supporter over the Russia inquiry.

    As Casey Stengel once said about the 1962 Mets, “Doesn’t anybody here know how to play this game?”

          The difference is Sundance says that nothing will come out because the UniParty would cover it up to protect the Swamp, and you say that nothing will come out because Obama is clean as the fresh fallen snow. Nothing to see here, move along.

          As for political winners, it remains to be seen. So far, the Media’s response shifted from “This is a dirty lie, Obama would never!” to “Well, that was just routine spying.”

      I don’t agree Nunes went off on a frolic. He saw something extremely serious that implicates Obama people and possibly Dems on the Hill. I suspect that in 2-3 seeks from now, Trump’s wiretapping tweets will be largely irrelevant as the full scale of Obama’s illegal surveillance emerges.

      IMHO Kevin McCarthy made his statement about the Benghazi panel being political to hurt Hillary because as Uniparty he was concerned that they were uncovering the truth, and this would de-legitimize the findings.

    To me Rep Nunes is still a hero in my book! What he did that day by speaking to the press and then to our President was truly a gift. He went out on the plank and made sure that the MSM and the Democrats couldn’t say that what happened with the unmasking had anything to do with Russia. He literally blew up their cover. Look at everything else that has happened since. The WH through our Lion continued to press the issue. Evelyn Farkas became a household name. Susan Rice was caught lying to PBS on March 22nd. She had to admit to MSNBC that she did request for unmasking to take place. She also used a dumb example to make it seem that the President and his people were about to plot with terrorists to blow things up. Our President used a #FBI. The next day he stated to the NYT that Rice should face criminal prosecution.

    Catherine Herridge from Fox has stated that the surveillance was done on normal everyday activities that had nothing to do with foreign nations. John Brennan’s name is now being bantered around as the person that might have been responsible for the leaks being disseminated. Eric Holder announced via twitter that Barry is Back. Two days later, our President sent Barry away for a long long time. I could go on and on but the reality is that at the end of the day, this will end up at the DOJ where folks will be testifying in from of a jury to determine their faith in life. Nothing that happened today takes us away from the inevitable!

    The comical part of this now is watching Republican leadership scramble to try and convey appropriate rage at this surveillance scandal for we sheeples and simultaneously lead the cover up as they are complicit in the whole affair.
    Telling how both house’s committees said they might invite Susan Rice to testify, but neither expressed any urgency. Also notice how conveniently they use the cloak of “classified intelligence” to avoid public hearings about the surveillance information which was said to be in the most top secret President’s Daily Briefings which sounds like it was distributed to anybody that wanted it.
    No way the members of the intel committees haven’t known about this all along and had been getting away with it until Evelyn Farkas spilled the beans. The cover for the Uniparty is being blown and they are panicked about that. Well played Mr. President, well played.

    Folks, the greatest lessons I have learned from this site, is, A) EVERYONE in the swamp, any aisle side, any committee, any branch, any organisation, any council, any coalition, is dedicated to one purpose, and only one purpose; to remove the God-given right to be free, from us, outlined in a wonderful, well written, timeless document known as COTUS so a select few controls the entire wealth of humanity. We are the core source of that wealth, but they will never let us into their big club. B) Through his words and actions he has taken, President Trump really is trying to Make America Great Again for those who work and sacrifice, and C) you are NEVER going to hear the truth from the centuries-old and deeply corrupt conduit known as the media. So from now on, I will wait to read about political events here at TCTH before investing ANY emotions. The good Lord has seen to it that the man got elected, the man has accomplished more positive changes in 75 days in office than more than 16 years of the past two “administrations” combined, I’m sleeping better at night, and have renewed hope for the future generations of Americans willing to work hard just so they can “live the dream”.

      Dekester thank you for you perspective! What occurred today in the Senate was truly a gift from the heavens. The fact we got to use the nuclear (Harry Reid) option of Judge Gorsuch was the biggest mistake the Democrats have made so far. Justice Kennedy will see what occurred today and realize that the Republicans had no other option. This will not stop him at all from retiring this summer. Our Lion can now use the hard core conservatives on his list of 20. Judges like Pryor (54 years of age from the 11th circuit).

      When the WAPO is writing articles like this (below)

      from the article

      Pryor, 54, has been an especially outspoken critic of abortion rights, calling Roe v. Wade “the worst abomination of constitutional law in our history.”

      Pryor’s family life also shaped his strong views on abortion. His mother remembers her eldest son sitting at the kitchen table the morning she and her husband discussed their concerns and disapproval of the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. “It affected him more than I realized,” she said.

      This would never have been possible if the Reid option wasn’t invoked today. Wait when old Ruth goes off into the sunset and another hard core justice is selected by our President. We will all look back on 4/6/17 not about Nunes’ decision but about how moronic the Democrats were to allow this to happen.

    I know I continue to go back to this but it is so true. It is so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day nonsense.

    They can swing this in the MSM all they want but at the end of the day they are DEAD! When you have unmasking of conversations that had absolutely nothing to do with Russia, your cover is dead. Two day’s ago our President’s tweet used the hashtag #FBI. Yesterday he tells the NYT that she is guilty of a crime. Folks he just sent over another nuclear bomb and he is telling them and us that people will be arrested and indited. PATIENCE is a must in this!

    George Wallace fellow Treeper stated the following:

    Too many people are assuming that all Trump has is the Nunes material.

    I don’t agree. Suspect he has a huge amount of damning information implicating Obama, Clinton, Lynch, Brennan, Clapper and many others.

    I also think he has had it for some time – certainly before the tweets, perhaps as early as January.

    He (and Bannon) have decided to leak it slowly. Death by a thousand cuts.

    This is a very effective strategy. If he dumped the lot, the MSM would be able to try and cover for their Democratic masters and make the issue go away. It also keeps his enemies on the defensive and constantly looking over their shoulder. Over time, they will become demoralized and exhausted, making it easier to finish them off.

    It’s a classic strategy used by detectives in serious criminal investigations. Gather evidence, but don’t reveal it.

    It also allows him to continually demonstrate what lying scumbags these people are. For example, I expect Rice will claim that it was all ‘legal’ pursuant to Obama’s change of dissemination policy and that she would never have done any unmasking unless it was 100% legal and justified. She goes on MSM and they duly sanitize her criminal activity. Then, boom – more information will come out, for example showing she was involved in unmasking and dissemination during the campaign.

    The drip, drip, drip is killing them and neutralizing them daily. You will never again see any of Obozo’s clowns on tv other than in handcuffs. They cannot speak because they are burying their graves deeper and deeper. You will never ever again see Barry from Hawaii step foot on the mainland of the US (other than Hawaii). This allows our President to forge ahead with eliminating Barrack Hussein Obama from the books. By the time 2 years are up, there won’t be a single EO our piece of legislation left in that POS’s name. The remaining 6 years will be used to MAGA!

    I wish he had not stepped aside, but I hope there is good cause for it. I’m disappointed until that revile happens, It’s a shame when we worked so hard to win so much that we’d have our leaders cave to suck crap.

    I still have full faith in my president Trump, but he better start slappin some of this crap down if he wants my unconditional support. I’ll not be trying to support this own causes if he wont do it himself.

    Intel Committee Official: Democrats Have Leaked Classified Info
    Senior House source says Nunes recusal temporary, ethics probe bad news for panel Democrats
    by Brendan Kirby | Updated 06 Apr 2017 at 4:28 PM

    The official, who has direct knowledge of the investigation and spoke on LifeZette on condition of anonymity, characterized the surprising decision by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) to step away as a willingness to take a bullet for committee members who likely would be dogged by questions about the controversy when they returned to their districts for the Easter recess.

    Nunes faces an inquiry by the House Ethics Committee, but the House Intelligence Committee official told LifeZette that there is no evidence Nunes did anything wrong. By contrast, the official said, there is evidence that some Democrats have leaked classified material — both inadvertently and intentionally.

    The Intelligence Committee official said that the direction of the Russia investigation would not change with Rep. Michael Conaway (R-Texas) at the helm. The official said that Nunes eventually would resume his leadership position and would continue to lead the panel’s investigation of other matters, such as leaks of classified information unrelated to Russia.

    While the Dems look for smoke in R’s camp, fires maybe exposed in the D’s camp by just going through the process. Meanwhile the Republicans get a quieter Easter/Spring break and continue on with investigations. And Nunes resumes his other main Intel work when he gets back.

      From that same article, this is interesting too:
      “The Intelligence Committee official said that Rice appears to have been sloppy but that there is reason to believe that other Obama political appointees engaged in similar unmasking activity but did a better job of covering their tracks.

      Ultimately, the official said, Republican members of the committee believe it will require the Justice Department or a special prosecutor to ferret out all of the information surrounding how Obama administration officials handled classified surveillance information.”

    “I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation”. TREY GOWDY. BWAAAAAH-HAAAAAH-HAAAAAH! THE REGRESSIVE LEFT IS TOAST.

    Does any RINO seriously think that the “distraction” will go away with Nunes’ being yanked??
    Will these dunderheads ever realize that capitulation to the Left yields only more capitulation.

    A reminder on Nunes side-step 2day. We said b4, as part of his transition role, he was a *subject* of Obama surveillance. Think about it

    He had to step aside, he can’t lead the investigation if he was being spied on.

      The Obama administration spied on everybody. This was confirmed by Snowden and Wikileaks Vault 7.

      So I guess nobody can investigate Obama and his co-conspirators.

    So where in the hell is Sessions concerning the Rice/Obama scandal? Where is the FBI? isn’t he in charge of the FBI and supposed to direct them to conduct investigations? Can we even trust the FBI? These Intelligence oversight committees are nothing but a waste of time and useless. if they were doing their jobs we wouldn’t be having these scandals in the IC. Where were they when it was revealed the IC was spying on their own intelligence committees, the media and every person in the country. There is never any consequences for any of these scum and I’m not confident there will be any in the foreseeable future.

      you know I hate to say it but Sean hannity should worry a little. He may have led them to the trough. He called a wanted international fugitive to get an interview with the most hated guy on earth by the intel orgs….Many want to assasinate him and Sean flys to Europe to meet with him….Now that is plenty reason to unmask him and surviel him. I’m sure he called Trump many times and was recorded. He’ got runoff of the mouth so I hope he didn’t say too many strange things while they were listening. He says he’ll sue them but he left himself wide open if you ask me playing with Assange and building him up…Big mistake……

    Congress is the ultimate boys-club. Once you arrive, you circle the wagons to keep feeding at the trough of power and fortune. You arrive with a middle-class bank account and leave a multi-millionaire, after living the good life at the expense of the tax payers. Behind all those serious ‘hearings’ is a kabuki theater, full of performing toothless sharks. They snarl for the cameras and then retreat to their cigar lounges, patting each other on the back at the latest performance, while sipping on their expensive Scottish whiskey and smoking their Cuban cigars – all generously funded by the tax payers. No doubt, when you arrive at Congress, you know you have made it! Set for life while having to deliver nothing of note. All you have to do to keep your good life is to toe the line of the backroom dealers and life will remain sweet. Anyone who thinks sending someone to Congress to ‘shake the joint up’ is going to actually do just that, has rocks for brains. The system is broke beyond repair. I thought Trump would be able to do something about it, but as the days move on, it’s clear Trump has no real say in running government. He’s only allowed to do so much before the boys-club closes ranks. It’s called self-preservation and they can’t allow anyone to breach their wagons. Good luck America!

    It’s a race between Charles Grassley and Trey Gowdy as to who will stalkl longer to get the bottom of something. Grassley pops up like 6 months too late on every issue and writes a letter and stutters we’ll get to the bottom of this…Gowdy does the rooster dance and puffs up and has good points and talking style but his chain is made of titanium and will be allowed to really attack just bark and say …yes mam yes mam…….Pathetic… Let Judicial Watch take care of business…….

    (Bold mine)


    The U.S. government’s foreign surveillance sweeps up American lawmakers and their staffers so routinely now that Congress is alerted as often as once a month that its employees involved in intercepted conversations have been unmasked and their identities shared with intelligence or law enforcement agencies, Circa has learned.

    The so-called Gates notifications — named for former CIA Director Robert Gates — go to the Gang of Eight leadership team in Congress.

    That’s about what I thought.

      Reminds me of the constant notifications I keep getting about being swept up in hackings/illegal activites e.g., OMP, Home Depot, Wells Fargo, Yahoo, Yahoo, Yahoo, and now via mics on IPhone/iPad.

      I’ve lost track. Has anyone gone to jail yet?

        Nah, I think .gov keeps the bad guys out of jail so they have a reason to spy on all of us. My theory sounds as plausible an explanation as any for all the spying that has been going on since 9/11.
