This morning, Devin Nunes issued a statement declaring that he was “temporarily” stepping away from the Russia investigation even though he hasn’t done anything wrong. Lulz. The totally *cough* innocent *cough* chairmen of the intel committee blamed his recent conundrum on all of the stinkin Democrats who have reported him to the House Ethics Committee:
Several left-wing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics. The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.
Damn those Democrats for ensuring that the investigation in election tampering by a foreign government and the president’s possible role in it is impartial! WTF are they thinking?!
Naturally, Nunes sudden decision to step aside left everyone wondering why he really did it, especially since he has been adamant that he was a good boy and did nothing wrong. Unfortunately, we may not get the real story because Nunes summoned his inner Forrest Gump this morning and ran away reporter Cecilia Vega when she tried to get to the bottom of his change of heart. And it is hilarious:
