The mainstream media are using claims by Lev Parnas, facing criminal indictment on federal campaign finance charges, to further a years-long Democrat effort to attack House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA).
Nunes has been a target ever since he began investigating the FBI’s effort to conduct surveillance on members of the 2016 presidential campaign of President Donald Trump — an effort that lasted into the Trump presidency itself.
It was Nunes who revealed the fact that members of the outgoing Obama administration had “unmasked” the names of Americans who appeared in transcripts of surveillance of telephone conversations with foreign nationals. At least one of those names, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, was leaked illegally to the Washington Post, where his conversation with the then-Russian ambassador became part of the Russia “collusion” conspiracy theory.
The Los Angeles Times noted Saturday that Nunes had been investigated and cleared by the House Ethics Committee in 2017 after he was falsely alleged to have leaked classified information. The Times, however, used the fact that Nunes was investigated to bolster its theory that he was part of a “scheme” with Parnas.
In one passage, the Times claimed the ethics committee was “Republican-led” — ignoring the fact that the House Ethics Committee is the one committee in the House that has equal representation from both parties, precisely to avoid partisan investigations.
