Nunes’s memory seems to be improving now that Parnes has gone public

Politico reported earlier today that Lev Parnas, in addition to handing over all of the material we discussed yesterday, also gave investigators voicemails he’d saved from Trump associates. And, coincidentally, shortly thereafter, Devin Nunes went on television to announce that, contrary to what he’d said earlier, he now remembers that he did in fact have a few conversations with Parnas, the Trump administration’s bag man in Ukraine. It’s really amazing how the human memory works, isn’t it?

update: Well, Parnes just told Rachel Maddow that he not only “met with Nunes several times,” but that the Congressman was in involved in “getting all this stuff on Biden.”

    Nunez going down would be almost as satisfying as Trump going down. Unfortunately, I doubt either will happen.

    I was thinking today that we didn’t give Trump enough credit for being right about his base. He could absolutely shoot someone in Times Square and they would still support him and probably say the CIA framed him. Or the bitch was asking for it. Or something charming like that.

    Trump has taken down more Republicans than any Democrat has ever dared to dream they could.

    Watching all these corrupt Republicans sacrifice their reputations, careers, and freedom, is making me consider voting for Trump for re-election.

    Nunes should claim he was Catfished by Parnas.

    Parnas is part of the pro-Hillary Russian mob.

    Fresno Bee: “Devin Nunes is waist-deep in Trump’s impeachment mess. But do Fresno voters care?”

    The more we learn about the Ukrainian-military-aid-for-political-dirt scandal enveloping Rudy Guliani, personal attorney to President Trump, the worse it looks for Devin Nunes.

    Rather than participate in impeachment hearings, as Nunes did in November as ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, our congressman should be the one on the witness stand answering questions, under oath, about his exact role.

    Perhaps then we’d get the truth from Nunes – if he can still recognize it.

    After records released a couple months ago that Nunes and former Guliani associate Lev Parnas had spoken by phone, Nunes told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that although “it was possible” he and Parnas had talked, he did not “recall” his name.

    “I will go back and check my records, but it seems very unlikely I will be taking calls from random people,” Nunes added, seemingly unaware of the irony that he wasn’t chatting with a random person.

    Wednesday night, in an obvious preemptive strike shortly before a well-publicized Parnas interview aired on MSNBC, Nunes returned to his Fox News safe haven and was given the chance to alter his story.

    Lo and behold, he did exactly that.

    “I just didn’t know the name – this name ‘Par-nas,’ “ Nunes said, still pretending not to. “You know now that he called my cellphone and I didn’t know the name, I didn’t remember the name, but I did remember going back to where I was at the time – you can do that now, you actually know where you physically are – checked it with my records.

    “It was very clear. I remember that call, which was very odd, random, talking about random things. And I said, ‘Great, talk to my staff,’ … which is standard operating procedure.”

    Actually, it’s about as clear as a foggy morning in Corcoran.

    Actually, it’s about as clear as a foggy morning in Corcoran.

    Nunes didn’t say why it was “standard operating procedure” for someone under federal indictment for violating campaign finance laws to have his personal cell number.

    Nor did Nunes say why he and three aides allegedly spent nearly $57,000 of taxpayer money so they could travel to Europe between November and December 2018. (I hear Kiev is lovely in late fall.)

    That’s wishful thinking, of course. Not in a million years would Fox News make Nunes answer those questions on live TV.
