“No conspiracy theory is too outlandish for the Democrats,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) during his opening statement at the House Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday.

Nunes argued that partisan House Democrats have “hijacked” the Intelligence Committee and are concocting “asinine” theories about President Trump.

“Time and time again, they floated the possibility of some far-fetched malfeasance by Trump- declared the dire need to investigate it and then suddenly drop the issue and moved on to their next asinine theory,” Nunes said.

“A sampling of their accusations and insinuations includes these:

Trump is a longtime Russian agent, as described in the Steele dossier.

The Russians gave Trump advanced access to emails stolen by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign. 

The Trump campaign based some of his activities on these stolen documents. 

Trump received nefarious materials from the Russians through a Trump campaign aide.

Trump laundered Russian money through real estate deals. 

Trump was blackmailed by Russia through his financial exposure with Deutsche Bank. 

Trump had a diabolical power plan to build a Trump tower in Moscow.

Trump changed the Republican National Committee platform to hurt Ukraine and benefit Russia.

The Russians laundered money through the NRA for the Trump campaign.

Trump's son in law lied about his Russian contacts while obtaining his security clearance.

It's a long list of charges - all false. And I can go on and on and on, but I'll spare you for these moments.”
