Has everyone forgotten Ryan told Nunes to tell Trump? Why is Nunes taking all the Heat? (ODonnell)

Last edited Fri Mar 24, 2017, 06:21 PM - Edit history (1)

Those of you who saw Nunes's presser after he went to Trump will remember him saying he first went to Ryan. Lawrence O'Donnell did a whole segment on this last night talking about how people seem to be completely overlooking this, and that Ryan is desperately hoping people will forget this. Many are demanding that Ryan remove Nunes but forgetting that it was Ryan who told him to go to the WH in the first place. In his later presser, which O'Donnell shows, he says Nunes fell on his sword for Ryan when he took Ryan out of the story and took full responsibility for going to the WH.

So why is Ryan not taking heat for this and Nunes is taking all of it? This is a really big deal and digs the corruption hole much deeper:

Transcript of Lawrence O'Donnell Thursday:

Everything Devin Nunes did yesterday was crazy, unprecedented just isn`t
the word for this. It was out of control crazy.

The sequence of what he did shows that the justification that he offered
yesterday for what he did is just not true. The first thing he did with
that information was tell the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Why did you not discuss this with the Ranking Member
before you came to the White House?

NUNES: So yes no, and I`m going to be meeting with Mr. Schiff at some
point to go talk about where we go with this investigation. But I have
been I had to brief the speaker first.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

O`DONNELL: I had to brief the speaker first. That`s the line that`s been
lost in all the coverage of this. That was Devin Nunes` second press
conference of the day.

That was at the White House after he spoke to the president. His first
press conference of the day was at the House of Representatives announcing
that he was on his way to speak to the president, and what he was going to
tell the president about.

So he didn't have time to speak to Adam Schiff, the senior Democrat on the
committee, which is the first thing an intelligence committee chairman is
supposed to do with new information.

That`s what we`re supposed to believe. He didn`t have time because he had
to tell the Speaker first before Adam Schiff?

Everything Devin Nunes did after telling the Speaker was something the
Speaker approved of. You don`t go running into the speaker`s office with
something like this and not get the word directly from the speaker of
exactly what he wants you to do next.

You have every right to believe that Paul Ryan was very angry with Devin
Nunes exposing him as being involved in the delivery of this intelligence
information to the White House yesterday.

Because today, when Devin Nunes talked about it, he fell on his sword for
Paul Ryan. He completely took Paul Ryan out of that story. Devin Nunes
took full responsibilities for the decision to go to the White House.

This segment starts at the 14 minute point. Swalwell interviewed here as well:

1. Hey, maybe Ryan knows the trump is going down...

he really doesn't care..pense Is not too far behind..that leaves ryan in the drivers seat...of course a special prosecutor should be called for, by ryan - think he will do it..but then, Nixon fired the SP Archibald Cox during Watergate -and then the Atty gen. at the time resigned....

Ryan was surely pissed Nunes exposed him...

2. Nunes had the first opportunity to do the right thing, which was

to take the intel stuff to the co-chair and cmte. He didn't. If he had performed correctly, no one could honestly criticize him. He's a weak worm.

3. Yes, but point is Ryan should be getting at least equal heat.

5. If he was directing Nunes' actions in this episode of obstruction...

Ryan should certainly be getting heat.

4. This whole thing smells

Little Squealer Nunes was on the transition.

I think he made the whole thing up at Trump's suggestion.

He did not go to Ryan. Ryan was up to his ass in alligators with TrumpFail

Little Squealer just tried to pull of a propaganda scam on us all.

Screwed his only sad reputation and lamed his own committee.

Then he runs to daddy Trump to rat people out for something that never happened.

There are no intercepts. He will never get them. They didn't exist.

He will then just sit on his pudgy ass and do nothing.

Thereby sabotaging anything schiff tries to do.

Just more evidence that Donnie is dirty. If the story keeps going as it has been, Donald J. Trump is a traitor and has blood on his hands in aiding and abetting Putin's government and violence.

At the least he is incompetent in that allow criminals onto his campaign. No extreme vetting there.
