Nunes is currently in his 10th term in Congress and has long been hailed as a hero by former President Donald Trump and his supporters for his drive to discredit the Steele Dossier.
As The Daily Wire reported in 2019, even The Washington Post had to admit that Nunes was more correct in his assertions regarding the dossier and chief Trump critic Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) had been proven mostly wrong:
Now that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has finally released his much-anticipated report on alleged misconduct by the FBI during the 2016 election, two famous memos — one released by Republican Rep. Devin Nunes while he was House Intelligence Committee chairman, and Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who has since taken over the position — have come under renewed scrutiny. The memos presented dueling versions of how the FBI began to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in an effort to investigate alleged “collusion” with Russia.
So who had it right? A fact-checker for The Washington Post has been forced to admit that Nunes got a “fair amount” right — in fact, his version of events aligned far more closely with what Horowitz found than the Democrats’ rebuttal.
