NUNES: ‘Shut Down’ Intelligence Agencies if They Continue to Withhold RussiaGate Info

'Our liberties are more important than anything else we have in this country...'

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., suggested dismantling the intelligence community if its agencies continue to withhold information regarding the Russia-Gate hoax and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s role in it.

A letter released last week from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe confirmed that U.S. intelligence agencies received “insight” into a Russian intelligence analysis alleging that Clinton, who was running against President Trump at the time, approved a campaign to “stir up a scandal” against Trump by tying him to Russian officials.

The agencies, however, have refused to share that insight with Congress, Nunes told Fox News on Sunday.

“We want every damn bit of evidence that every intelligence agency has, or it’s maybe time to shut those agencies down,” Nunes said. “Because, at the end of the day … our liberties are more important than anything else we have in this country. And they have been stampeded over by these dirty cops.”

The FBI, CIA, and the National Security Agency have tried to argue that disclosing the Russia report would undermine the credibility of the intelligence community’s investigation.

But Ratcliffe released details about the report anyways, which was the right call, according to Nunes.

Allowing agencies to slow down the process only emboldens Democrats, he said.

“The intelligence services in this country have been corrupted by the Democratic national party and their propaganda arm in the media,” he said. “It is orchestrated among the national left-wing media, the Democratic party that has become an outrage in this country. And the intelligence community working hand in glove with the Democratic presidential nominee of 2016, Hillary Clinton, and her campaign and the Democratic National Committee. There is no guesswork here. It is obvious.”
