Scarborough Suggests White House Used Intel Chair to Change Headlines, ‘Blow up’ House Investigation
Scarborough also calls on Nunes to “step aside” as chairman of House intel committee
Did the Trump White House use the House intel committee chairman to divert attention from the committee’s investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russians? That’s what Joe Scarborough suggested on today’s Morning Joe. Scarborough said that his reporting suggests that the White House “shoved” committee chairman Devin Nunes in front of the cameras to reveal that communications of President Trump and associates may have been intercepted after the election by intelligence agencies conducting surveillance of foreign targets.
Scarborough: “it just looked like, and sounded like from some reporting I did yesterday, that you had the White House desperate to do anything to change headlines this morning, because, again, from the reporting I did yesterday, talking to people in the White House, they were so desperate to change the narrative that it looks like they shoved him out with this information—just any information, anything—to change the headlines. And to blow up the investigation in the House. And it looks like that’s exactly what they did.”
Earlier in the show, Scarborough joined the chorus of people calling for Nunes to “step aside” as chairman of the House Intel committee.

Looks like Joey got his talking points last night. Things are getting ready to blow and it is not going to fair well for the Dems.
When Trump said the word wiretapping, someone called it Thunderdome. Two go in, one comes out.
We are living in the middle of the greatest political thriller since Roman times. I Claudius, with Hillary in the role of Livia.
Anybody who has tried to ‘shove’ Nunes would know better than to think Trump put him up to this. Then again, we are talking about the media…
First thought: Nunes has put his career on the line, and possibly his life.
Second thought: I seriously doubt if any of this maneuvering is spur of the moment (I just got this packet over the transom and am going to tell everyone about it without checking.)
Third thought: I believe this is not going as planned for the democrats. They thought Hillary would win easily. When she didn’t, they expected Trump to be unpopular and easy to remove. Where it all went wrong is that people who don’t like Trump like his policies.
I am starting to think that Adam Schiff is the leaker.
Checked out his tweets and he seems to be on full blown war path out to do full distract. I think Trump know who the leakers are.

Today, Chairman Nunes shared information with WH still withheld from our committee. He cannot conduct a credible investigation this way.
russia had nothing to do with Hillary losing. The progressive fascist just can’t accept that their arrogance and failure to demand integrity cause them to lose. Hillary is a corrupt, lying, cheating criminal and a terrible candidate. That is why they lost.
The Russians and Trump didn’t force Hillary to cheat in the primary. They didn’t force her to sell the favors of her office in exchange for hundreds of millions in contributions to her slush fund/foundation. They didn’t force her to organize bands of thugs to attack Trump supporters. Or to organize voter fraud. They didn’t force her ignore 600+ requests for security improvements leaving our people defenseless in lawless Libya. They didn’t force Hillary to lie about the attack on our consulate and then call the families of her victims liars. Hillary did all that by herself and we should be gratefull to whoever exposed Hillary as they helped save our country from here evil.
Re: Conrad CA:
All these things, and Hillary narrowly lost. Narrowly. My gosh, how close that bullet came….
That’s only if you count the illegal votes.
I feel in my bones that Hillary was lucky if she got 15% of the honest votes………
The left has approached and framed the investigation from the very beginning as an investigation into Trump. They’ve been beating the “Trump colluded with Putin” drum since the election, facts be damned. To them, this is Trump’s impeachment hearing. The fact that the only illegal activity that’s been uncovered has come from the government itself under Obama’s administration is nothing more than a distraction from the real issue of Trump stealing the election. The media has been more than willing to promote the left’s narrative.
By going public quickly, he may have thwarted his own Arkancide.
Mark, I admire your ability to monitor these morons and still be a functioning human being. The cost of the liquor alone would bankrupt me.
Why does this site waste so much space addressing the utterly inconsequential opinions of these nothings?
Because even though these nothings have no audience, they do have a pipeline to the latest talking points and are often the first to float them.
Yes, the Leftist Dems and their Slaves (the MSM) always float what they are going to attempt.
They always telegraph what evil they have afoot.
See the headline? Just don’t click if it bothers you so.
The Dems and the anti-Trump movement have put all their remaining credibility, such as it is, on the narrative that Trump and/or his campaign colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton. They did this using information gleaned through surveillance of the Trump campaign and the transition team. Then Trump hit back by involving Obama in the surveillance. This elevated the surveillance and the leak of information from that surveillance to a Watergate level. Now the usual suspects are running damage control.
I see the damage, but not the control. the democrats have no facts to counter this and are reduced to name calling.
What did Obama know, and when did Obama know it?
And Hillary. What did she know when she tweeted about Russians before the election?
What Trump needs are some indictments; and the bigger the offenders, the better. Actual concrete criminal charges would keep the media entertained, and they wouldn’t have to follow the imaginary Russian circus for excitement.
Of course indictments won’t come before investigations, and—unlike spurious charges—investigations take time.
How would Nunes pressed blow up House investigation? Scarborough is senile.
Remember when Schumer said words to the effect of never attack the Intelligence community. They will retaliate.
Someone should record that on an endless loop and put it out as an advertisement and on the internet.
Restart the Benghazi hearings, restart Fast and Furious, restart the IRS investigation.
Might as well run the dems ragged.
Or, maybe he’s the first One to tell the truth, Joe.
