Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s entire Russia investigation was nothing more than a two-long scam that failed to give Democrats their chance to remove President Donald Trump from office.
While his witch hunt backfired and vindicated the president, a new surprise Mueller bombshell has everyone talking.
While speaking with Gregg Jarrett on his Fox Nation special “Witch Hunt,” House Intelligence Committee ranking Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said criminal referrals are coming for members of Mueller’s team who investigated Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“We’re looking at doing criminal referrals on the Mueller team, the Mueller dossier team, the Mueller witch hunt, whatever you want to call it. That’s where we are now in our investigation,” Nunes said.
Last year, Nunes sent eight criminal referrals to Attorney General William Barr alleging several “potential violations” of the law in the course the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling and contacts with Trump advisers during the 2016 campaign.
Now, in the wake of the Justice Department’s decision to drop charges against former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn, Nunes is turning his attention to the conduct of Mueller and his team.
“We’re doing a large criminal referral on the Mueller dossier team that put together a fraudulent report — that knew there was no collusion the day that Mueller walked in the door,” the California Republican added. “They set an obstruction of justice trap. There’s no doubt in my mind that we will make a conspiracy referral there.”
Finally, Nunes said that he will ask Barr’s DOJ to investigate potential obstruction of the congressional investigation into the origins of the Russia probe.
“We’ll also be making an obstruction of justice criminal referral because we know that the House of Representatives … had multiple requests, multiple subpoenas that were out there that effectively were never answered, even though they claim they answered them. Well, now what we learned is that they lied and misled Congress by omission,” Nunes said.

Having examined witness reports and other new documents released by the FBI, Republicans now claim to have evidence that Mueller’s team misled the courts during their investigation.
This comes as the recently released FISA spy report found that FBI officials had falsified documents for the FISA court so they had a better chance of securing warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign, such as aide Carter Page.
In part, the IG report found that there was extreme bias against then-candidate Trump and that the FBI deliberately doctored evidence they presented to the nation’s top spy court in order to gain authority to spy on a key Trump affiliate.
Last week, the Department of Justice filed a motion to drop the charges against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
In the newly released documents, we also learned that the FBI had drawn up paperwork to close the case against Flynn, but fired agent Peter Strzok made a last-minute move to keep it open.
Strzok was fired for sending countless anti-Trump text messages to Lisa Page, a former FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair.
Strzok played a critical role in going after Flynn, the new documents reveal.
Handwritten notes from the FBI — which were withheld from Flynn’s defense team for years — show that a key goal of the agents investigating Flynn was “to get him to lie so we can prosecute him or get him fired.”
