My VIP for this week is Representative Devin Nunes (R-California) who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom today. The medal was presented to Nunes in an Oval Office Ceremony attended by Nunes’s family, staff, and several Republican congressmen. The medal was presented to Nunes for his diligence in reviewing the Russia collusion delusion. According to the press release:
Devin Nunes’ courageous actions helped
thwart a plot to take down a sitting
United States president….
Devin’s efforts led to the firing,
demotion, or resignation of over a dozen FBI and DOJ employees. He also forced
the disclosure of documents that proved that a corrupt senior FBI official
pursued a vindictive persecution of General Michael Flynn – even after rank-and-file
FBI agents found no evidence of wrongdoing.
[Nunes] pursued the Russia Hoax at great

Devin paid a price for his courage. The

In 2017, Congressman Nunes launched an
investigation into the Obama-Biden administration’s misconduct during the 2016
election – and began to unearth the crime of the century….
As a result of his work, he discovered that
the infamous Steele Dossier was funded by the Clinton campaign and the
Democratic National Committee. He found that a senior Justice Department
attorney was married to one of the architects of the document. He learned that
the Obama-Biden administration had issued Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act
(FISA) warrants to spy on President Trump’s campaign and illegitimately
unmasked several innocent spying victims for political gain.
rejoiced when I read that Nunes’s effort had been recognized in such a
wonderful way. In my book, he, his staff, and his family are all heroes in this
battle to maintain our republic.
