Devin Nunes Puts Obama On Notice, Calls For Special Counsel Probe Into Barack After Calling Him Biden’s Overlord

GOP Rep. Devin Nunes just put Barack Obama on notice saying he wants a special counsel to investigate the former president and how the Russia probe started before he hinted Obama is still calling some of the shots by calling him Biden’s ‘overlord.’

Nunes was on Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo when he dropped the bombshell.

“President Obama is the only president that I know that only moved about a mile from the White House set up shop, has all his people there,” Nunes said.

“Most of his people were promoting Kamala Harris to run before she bombed out, wasting hundreds of millions of dollars, and then they propped up Joe Biden,” Nunes said.

Later in the interview, Nunes referred to Obama as Biden’s ‘overlord.’

Nunes also called on Attorney General Bill Barr to appoint a special counsel to take over U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into potential malfeasance in the Russian collusion investigation.

‘Now we’re sitting waiting for Durham to complete this investigation. I think people are getting not only very frustrated but also, there’s a growing concern that Durham is not going to come out with anything and then Biden and Obama are going to be back in, and they’re going to shut this investigation off,’ Nunes said. 

Durham was appointed by Barr more than a year and a half ago to investigate any misconduct by the FBI and others others related to the inquiry into links between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

So far, Durham’s investigation has secured one guilty plea from a former FBI lawyer, who admitted to doctoring a document used to obtain surveillance warrants on a Trump campaign aide.

Trump has raged that the Russian collusion probe, which cast a shadow over much of his presidency, was a ‘failed coup,’ and expressed fury that Durham did not issue more indictments prior to the November election.

Nunes said that he feared Biden’s administration would shut down the Durham probe before it could be concluded.

‘I’ve been very clear about this,’ the congressman said. ‘Every day that ticks by, it’s going to become an absolute necessity that a special counsel is appointed on the way out.’

‘Now that doesn’t mean that Biden wouldn’t fire the special counsel, but at least you’d have a special counsel office set up, with money, so that this investigation can continue, because I’m not seeing the indictments that I should be seeing when you take into the account that I’ve made 14 criminal referrals involving dozens and dozens of people,’ he continued.
