CNN is a cesspool of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The network has declared war on the Trump administration and airs anti-Trump propaganda 24 hours a day.
A CNN reporter tried to ambush Devin Nunes, but Nunes shut down CNN with one brutal truth.
The anti-Trump media is falling all over itself to try and discredit Nunes after the release of the FBI’s application for a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Nunes authored a memo in February that alleged the FBI misled the court when they used the Christopher Steele dossier as the central basis to obtain the warrant.
The House Intelligence Committee Chairman alleged that the FBI also misled the court about the nature of Steele’s dossier, including who paid for it, the veracity of the information and if Steele briefed the media on his findings.
Journalists and Never Trump Republicans attacked Nunes’ memo.
But the release of the FISA application backed up everything Nunes claimed.
So CNN set out to once again undercut Nunes’ findings as part of their full court press to destroy Donald Trump’s administration.
CNN reporter Manu Raju – who famously botched a story where he peddled fake news that sources told him Donald Trump, Jr. received advanced knowledge of WikiLeaks releasing hacked emails – confronted Nunes in the Capitol.
Nunes was having none of Raju’s games.
The California Congressman shut down Raju by declaring, “Do you really think I’m going to, um, talk to the leading Democratic Party propaganda…?”

Nunes followed by tweeting out that CNN left out the statement his office provided to the network:
Also when asked my office gave them this quote…“CNN’s slavish adherence to the Democrats’ comical talking points is an amazing sight to behold.”…..Guess what? They refused to run the statement…This is another great example of “Fake and fraudulent news.”
The level of dishonesty in the so-called “mainstream” media surrounding the Nunes memo and the FBI’s application to obtain a FISA warrant against Carter Page is stunning.
The FBI’s application clearly shows that the FBI did not make it clear that the Clinton campaign had paid for the dossier.
In the application, the FBI wrote that the dossier was funded by an entity that wanted to discredit Trump’s presidential campaign.
That could mean anything, including Never Trump Republicans or news organizations – and a news organization, the Washington Free Beacon – was the original client who fired Fusion GPS to investigate Trump, although their involvement with Fusion GPS ended long before the firm hired Christopher Steele.
Nunes’ memo was corroborated by the FISA application.
The FBI’s spying operation against the Trump campaign was based on a sham.
It was not based on real evidence or concern about Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Critics allege anti-Trump partisans in the FBI and Obama Justice Department like James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Sally Yates used a fake news dossier to frame an American citizen – Carter Page – for being an agent of a foreign government.
Even though the FBI alleged in its application that Page was acting as a Russian agent – he has not been charged with any wrongdoing during the two years of investigations, despite the FBI’s FISA warrant being renewed for three additional 90-day periods.
CNN – and other anti-Trump outlets – can run all the fake news stories about the dossier and the FBI’s conduct that they want.
No amount of misinformation and spin can change the fact that Americans have the ability to judge both the Nunes memo and the FBI’s application with their own eyes.
And any fair reading shows Nunes was correct that the FBI used a phony dossier to trick a judge into allowing them to conduct a politically motivated espionage campaign against Donald Trump.
