Raw Story reports:
President Donald Trump on Monday praised Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) as a “Great American Hero” for his role in releasing a controversial memo that critics have assailed for providing a misleading picture of the FBI’s actions in 2016.
Nunes on Friday released a memo that aimed to undercut the FBI’s role in investigating President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, as it purported to show alleged surveillance abuses related to Carter Page, a former Trump foreign policy adviser who had once openly boasted about his connections to the Kremlin.
Representative Devin Nunes, a man of tremendous courage and grit, may someday be recognized as a Great American Hero for what he has exposed and what he has had to endure!
