Jay Bookman discusses the serial mendacity of Devin Nunes. A nugget:
But if Nunes is not too bright or ethical, he is certainly diligent. That fake scandal was quickly followed by another, this time over the so-called Nunes memo. In that memo, the California congressman claimed to have compiled classified information proving the existence of an anti-Trump cabal within the FBI that had abused its powers in investigating the president. Once again, the conservative noise machine revved itself up; once again, Trump joined the fray, clearing the way to have the Nunes memo declassified and telling aides that it would prove his claim of a witch hunt against him.
Yet when the ballyhooed memo was made public, it too proved to be nonsense . . . .
