Devin Nunes warns ‘growing concern’ that Biden and Obama will shut down Durham inquiry

Devin Nunes

Rep. Devin Nunes warned of “growing concern” that President-elect Joe Biden, taking cues from former President Barack Obama, will shut down U.S. Attorney John Durham’s inquiry into the Russia investigation.

The California Republican, who is the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, said on Sunday that Attorney General William Barr should set up a special counsel before Inauguration Day to keep the so-called investigation of the investigators alive.

“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 told Maria Bartiromo on her Fox News program, Sunday Morning Futures.

The congressman noted that Obama moved about a mile away from the White House after his eight years as president, asserting that Obama “set up shop” and spent time propping up Sen. Kamala Harris, who is now vice president-elect, during the Democratic Party presidential primaries until she “bombed out” before they shifted to backing Biden.
