Republicans are claiming that House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes never actually recused himself from the Russia investigation because he did not use the word “recusal.”
Democratic Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Rep. Adam Schiff is trying to invalidate the subpoenas that Nunes sent out to three intelligence agencies asking for information on the alleged “unmasking” of Trump transition officials by Susan Rice and possibly John Brennan and Samantha Power.
Schiff said that Nunes violated his recusal on the Russia matter by issuing the subpoenas, though it is unclear that the subpoenas Nunes issued on the unmasking are actually related to Russia. Nunes stepped aside from the Russia probe after Democrats complained about Nunes briefing the White House before the Intelligence Committee with information about Trump’s transition team being surveilled. House Speaker Paul Ryan joined with the Democrats in supporting Nunes stepping aside.
“He didn’t ‘recuse’ himself. That has a very specific legal definition and isn’t accurate here,” a senior Republican aide told CNN, noting the difference between “temporarily stepping aside” and “recusing.”
Let’s look at Nunes’ statement announcing his so-called recusal (emphasis added):
“I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter,” Nunes stated.
After Facebook Censors ANTIFA Warning Video, Georgia Congressional Front-Runner Doubles Down with TV Ad Buy
Marjorie Greene will not stop exposing ANTIFA no matter the consequences.
Georgia GOP Congressional candidate Marjorie Greene is doubling down after Facebook censored her video calling out ANTIFA domestic terrorists and refused to allow her to promote it on their monopoly platform.
“This content also violates our violence and incitement policy within our Community Standards. You can read more about that here. This post will be removed,“ Facebook told Greene’s campaign after they attempted to promote a video about the far-left terror group.
This is the video released by Greene that Facebook does not want you to see:
Even though social media has censored her message, she is continuing to push the message about the evils of ANTIFA, a group which has supplanted ISIS as the top threat to the American national security. She released an explosive new ad that could potentially potentially millions of Georgians before the upcoming primary election next week.
“ANTIFA terrorists have declared war on America,” Greene says in the ad. “Rioting, looting and burning our cities. George Soros, Hollywood elites, and Joe Biden’s staff are funding ANTIFA.”
“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

Moreso than perhaps any other candidate running for office in the United States, Greene’s messaging is congruent with the White House with regards to ANTIFA. President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr recently announced that they would be treating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization, a move that Big League Politics has been advocating for years.
The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.

“It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protesters, as well as all other citizens,” Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement about the violence.
“It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed,” he continued.
Greene is running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in Georgia’s 14th Congressional district against several competitors. The primary election is set to take place on June 9.
