Devin Nunes has his own fake news site

Devin Nunes' Intelligence Committee wall is a monument to his craven partisanship House intelligence chairman Devin Nunes wants to physically divide committee members by party

"The Nunes memo is the best evidence that the DOJ didn't mislead the FISA court, but rather, that the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have tried to mislead the American people".

The site has been down since at least Sunday, with all pages redirecting back to the site's Facebook page, as The Hill notes.

Politico reported the story Sunday in an article titled, "Devin Nunes creates his own alternative news site".

"He's got fake memos, fake websites and fake news", Nunes' main Democratic challenger Andrew Janz told Politico.

Nunes often complains about "fake news", telling conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh this week that "almost every story" is fake news. His campaign's foray into the news and information space would follow similar efforts by members of both parties, from the Trump campaign's show on Facebook Live in the final stretch of the campaign to podcasts Sens. Headlines include "CNN busted for peddling fake news AGAIN!", "California's budget future isn't as good as it looks" and "Billions of dollars later, Democrats and the LA Times start to see the light on high-speed rail".

A spokesman for Nunes did not immediately return a request for comment. That memo awaits review by President Donald Trump, who can either redact all or portions of the text, or allow the full document to be released. I mean, they refuse, they absolutely refuse to cover the truth.

He said his government has not allowed any increase in power tariff in the past three years, unlike the previous government. The party workers marched towards the chief minister's residence and police had to use water cannons to disperse the crowd.

"Until POLITICO retracts its multitude of fake stories on Congressman Nunes, we will not go on the record", Nunes' office emailed POLITICO when asked about the outlet. "And now the Democrats are doing their memo, and we're in memo hell". The committee voted to release the Democrats' memo early this week, after Republicans stalled, but the White House is still mulling whether to declassify it or not.

The mention by Politico is clearly benefiting the website in terms of traffic.

The committee has been riven by divisions over an ongoing ethics investigation into its members, as well its handling of a probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

The report about the wall comes amid the increasingly volatile environment over the released GOP surveillance memo and the still unreleased Democratic countermemo.

Janz said that the Trump administration is "doing everything they can to cover up" for Nunes, who has been criticized by Democrats and some Republicans for publicly releasing a memo that alleges the Federal Bureau of Investigation abused its surveillance powers.
