House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton paid for the anti-Trump dossier, funded the spy warrant, and collaborated with Russia to frame President Donald Trump.
That’s what Nunes said during an interview Monday night with Fox News host Sean Hannity, and he wants Clinton held accountable for weaponizing the FBI against Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
“It’s what happens in banana republics. It’s scary,” Nunes said, detailing how the recently released four-page FISA abuse memo from the House Intelligence Committee shows there was a “clear link” between the Clinton campaign and Russia.
“There’s clear evidence of collusion — that the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign colluded with the Russians,” Nunes said, asserting that there’s been “crickets from the media” about arguably the biggest scandal in modern political history.
Nunes told Hannity the GOP memo further solidifies that “the counterintelligence investigation should have been opened up against the Hillary campaign when they got ahold of the dossier.”
“I just go by the old rule: Whatever they accuse you of doing, they’re actually doing,” Nunes said.
Hannity claims he "hasn't yet been wrong yet in all of this," asks Nunes how "it's possible in the United States of America" for Clinton to collude *both* with Russia & the FBI.

The GOP memo exposed how high-ranking officials at the Justice Department and FBI not only abused their power, but likely broke the law by using the dossier from former British spy Christopher Steele to secure a warrant with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to spy on Trump’s campaign.
Steele was working for Fusion GPS, who had received nearly $10 million to finance the dossier from Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
We are finally seeing corrupt actors exposed for their potentially illegal actions, and it appears Nunes is prepared to turn up the heat even more to ensure these hostile actors are held accountable for abusing their power.
Many would agree Clinton deserves to go to prison.
