Keep in mind that Devin Nunes had to step down as head of the House Intelligence Committee after being caught lying about the Obama Administration spying on Trump campaign and sharing classified information.

Donald Trump has given the US attorney general permission to share classified information about the Russia investigation with Devin Nunes, the Republican House Intelligence Committee ranking member who has called for Justice Department and FBI officials to be jailed over the probe.
The US president said he had given William Barr “a total release” of documents relating to the investigation into Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election, and had also “given him authorization to release it to whoever he wants”.
“He’s got everything; everything he needs, he’s got,” he told Sean Hannity in an interview on Fox News on Thursday night.
Mr Trump added: “He’s the attorney general of the United States, he’s has got a lot of very good people under him that I guess are involved and I gave them a total release. So, all of it’s been released and he has all of it.
“I’ve also given him authorization to release it to whoever he wants, whether it’s his people or frankly perhaps people like Devin Nunes, who is a star.”
The only reason that Donald Trump calls amybody a “star” is because they are doing exactly what he wants them to do for him.
And Devin Nunes always does exactly what Daddy tells him to do.
Earlier this month, he described officials who triggered Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation as “a bunch of dirty cops”.
“Some of them better go to jail, or we’re going to go down in a spiral in this country because you will not have a Republican that will trust the FBI or the Department of Justice for generations to come,” he told Fox News presenter Bill Hemmer.
Mr Nunes has repeatedly been accused of attempting to undermine investigations into the Russia allegations.
Keep in mind that some of this classified information sounds like the same info that the Democratic heads of several commitees have been blocekd from accessing.

The Trump administration has been quietly engaged in an escalating tug-of-war with the House and Senate intelligence committees over sensitive documents from the special counsel’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, the latest in a series of attempts to stymie Congress, including with claims of executive privilege, sources have told ABC News.
“The scope of confidentiality interests being asserted by the executive branch is breathtaking,” said Andrew M. Wright, an expert on executive privilege who served as a congressional investigator and as a White House attorney in two Democratic administrations. As is “the lack of accommodation and compromise,” he added.
The only reason that Trump would give Nunes this classified information while blocking the House Democrats from seeing it is that he expects Nunes to leak and misrepresent the information to make the sources look untrustworthy and to undermine the legitimacy of Mueller’s findings.
And remember Nunes always does what Daddy tells him to do.
