July 30, 2018 – Might Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) someday face obstruction of justice charges for his efforts to undermine the investigation into Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia in the 2016 election?
In a new piece for the Washington Post, conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin lays out the possible case against the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
Some of Nunes’ behavior is covered by a Constitutional clause that protects Congressional speech and debate, Rubin says, but not all of it.
“There is nothing official in sneaking over to the White House to review classified materials and then publicly misrepresenting them,” she writes. “There is nothing official in outing a confidential source.”
