Trump Insists Devin Nunes Will Go Down in History as a ‘Great American Hero’ in Psycho Tweet

President Donald Trump on Monday praised Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) as a “Great American Hero” for his role in releasing a controversial memo that critics have assailed for providing a misleading picture of the FBI’s actions in 2016.

Representative Devin Nunes, a man of tremendous courage and grit, may someday be recognized as a Great American Hero for what he has exposed and what he has had to endure!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Nunes on Friday released a memo that aimed to undercut the FBI’s role in investigating President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, as it purported to show alleged surveillance abuses related to Carter Page, a former Trump foreign policy adviser who had once openly boasted about his connections to the Kremlin.

However, the Nunes memo also unwittingly undercut the notion that the FBI’s investigation of the campaign was a “witch hunt,” as it confirmed reports that the FBI had started looking into potential collusion between the campaign and Russian officials after former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos had drunkenly boasted about hacked emails that the Russians had taken from Trump’s Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
