Fox News anchor Shep Smith this afternoon accused Rep. Devin Nunes of being a “shill” for the White House. Raw Story reports:
“Chairman Nunes claims he needed to be in a secure area,” Smith said, “He also refuses to give up his sources, though he has not denied that they came from inside the White House.” Nunes apparently told House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) that he received the information from a “whistleblower type person.”
“A whistleblower type person,” said Shep. “Clearly very different from two men who work inside and for the White House.” “Chairman Nunes gave the White House cover with information provided by the White House, and seen by no one else,” he continued, noting how his actions have raised questions — particularly whether he can remain impartial in this investigation. “Or, is he a White House shill?” Shep asked.
