You never saw it on CNN but one of the biggest reasons that the entire establishment media mobilized as shills for the Democrats is that a House win would completely shut down any investigations into Deep State malfeasance over the use of the bogus Fusion GPS dossier to obtain FISA permission to conduct surveillance on the Trump campaign.
HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes fought the good fight to have the information declassified but has been thwarted by dirty cop Rod Rosenstein at the Justice Department and now only days before Thanksgiving, the documents that would show that it is all a scam and that certain high-ranking officials conducted themselves in a dishonest if not criminal manner are still classified with hope waning that President Trump will act to allow the American public to see how the sausage is really made.
Nunes sat for an interview on Fox News Sunday in which he addressed this travesty.

From the transcript via Real Clear Politics “Nunes: We Finished Our Investigation; “Four Buckets Of Information We Want Declassified”:
BARTIROMO: Let me move on, Congressman, and ask you about your investigations. We have been with you for the entire year following your moves from the Intel Committee in terms of investigating the FBI and the DOJ and this number of people, the small number of people at the top of those agencies, who tried to stop Donald Trump and exonerate Hillary Clinton, as you have said many times on this program.
Now you have got the Democrats holding the majority in the new Congress in January. What will happen to your investigation?
NUNES: Well, we largely are done. So, a lot of people don’t understand that, but we — we finished our investigation.
So, we have three buckets of information that we want declassified. We now have a fourth bucket that we want declassified. The president has called for three of those four to be declassified.
We sent a list of about 40 names to our Russia task force that Chairman Goodlatte and Chairman Gowdy are heading up. Likely, they’re not going to get through those names, because they just haven’t had — haven’t had enough time.
But, look, this begs an investigation by the Department of Justice. So either the Department of Justice, under new leadership, can actually go in and investigate these cast of dirty cops, is really what they were, and their connections to the Russians and their connections to the Clinton campaign.
Either it’s a special counsel or the DOJ has to do that. Now, that’s the way that this is going to be solved, because our committee — and I’m very proud of the work we have done. We unearthed all of this information. The American people now know that the Trump campaign was unmasking American citizens.
They know that — that many of the Trump campaign — campaign people were targeted. They know that they used a dossier that was paid for by the Clinton campaign to go after and use it in a FISA warrant against the campaign.
So, we’re really proud of what we have done. And we want the American people to see these — these four buckets of information that need to be declassified.
NUNES: And if the president would do that, it would — it would, I think, give some finality to our investigation.
BARTIROMO: Well, let’s go through that, because you’re now giving us new information on this fourth bucket.
But you want to see the last FISA renewal, which was signed by Rod Rosenstein. You want to see Bruce Ohr reports, which are the e-mails that you want to see from Bruce Ohr and his wife and others. And you want to see the exculpatory evidence that wasn’t presented to the FISA court, in other words, evidence that would say there was no collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians.
But that actually wasn’t presented to the FISA court. What is this fourth bucket? And am I right about the first three?
NUNES: Yes, so the first three, you’re right on. We have been calling for those for many months.
The president actually directed them to be done. And then you had Rod Rosenstein, who convened a meeting to stop that and get that kicked to the I.G. But that’s not a workable solution.
We have let the White House know that. That’s not going to work. That will — that will just bury this, and none of it will ever be declassified.
The new fourth bucket that we’re asking actually to be declassified now is, for months, we have been reviewing e-mails between FBI and DOJ and others that clearly show that they knew about information that should have been presented to the FISA court.
So, it is real evidence that people within the FBI withheld evidence from the FISA court.
NUNES: Now, these are classified. And they need to be declassified.
We have been asking. This went to the highest levels, even above myself. It went as high as the speaker. The speaker has been requesting the Department of Justice…
NUNES: … to give us these e-mails, to make as many public as possible.
NUNES: And still, even though we know what’s in those e-mails, a lot of them are still redacted.
BARTIROMO: Well, meanwhile…
NUNES: So, they’re still refusing to give Congress even in a classified setting this information.
BARTIROMO: I asked David Cicilline about this last week. He, of course, is a Democrat congressman on the Judiciary Committee. And he’s the co-chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee. So he’s in leadership.
Here’s what he said about the FISA court.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
BARTIROMO: We know that there was massive abuse to the FISA court when information was not given to the FISA court about the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paying for the dossier, et cetera.
There has been this investigation in the Judiciary Committee, your committee, as you know, Bob Goodlatte leading the investigation of Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr.
Are you going to drop that investigation now, or are you going to pursue the truth there?
CICILLINE: Well, let me correct you, Maria. There has not been massive abuse of the FISA court.
CICILLINE: There’s been no evidence of any abuse whatsoever.
BARTIROMO: Are you saying that they did not withhold information? They did not withhold information to the FISA judge in terms of…
BARTIROMO: … dossier? Is that what you’re saying?
CICILLINE: I’m saying there’s been no abuse of the FISA court, absolutely no abuse of the FISA court.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
BARTIROMO: Wow, he was pretty adamant there.
NUNES: Yes. Yes.
So, look, they have been in denial for a long time. Their party was colluding directly with the Russians. Their entire party and the Clinton campaign should be investigated, because, if you’re going to investigate — if you’re going to open up a secret investigation on the Trump campaign, when you had no evidence into them colluding with the Russians, when you — in fact, the FBI used the evidence that the Clinton campaign paid for that was coming directly from Russians.
So, the very thing Trump’s being — Trump campaign was investigated for, they did. So I assume maybe there is no FISA abuse in their own mind because they think it’s OK. They think, as long as the Democrats are the ones that are using secret courts to spy on their political opponents, then it’s OK.
If that’s — if that’s the way people want it in America — I don’t think that is, but, clearly, that’s what the Democrats think it should be.
Trump has until January 3rd which is when Little Adam Schitt takes over. A declassification would be a nice lump of coal in the Christmas stockings of the neo-Stalinist Democrats.
