“One-hundred percent, they [the FBI and DOJ] are putting all their chips on the Republicans losing the House and all these investigations will shut down,”
This is the play. Limp along on the hope that the Dems take the House. Brennan is clinging to this. Otherwise things don’t look so good for him and some of his buddies.
We still put the odds at 50/50 of a Dem House takeover, which is not a cop out, it’s just the vibe we get at this moment. It’s been steady since about February.
But the Dems are hoping to get traction out of Helsinki. They need to and that is why they are going nuts right now. Everything else they have tried has failed. Whether they can move things in their direction finally will be interesting. The Dem leadership wants that “blue wave.” They’ve been practically guaranteeing it for a long time.
I fear the reaction if they don’t deliver. The Dems are desperate now. What happens if they don’t take the House?

Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), in a wide-ranging audio interview with his House colleague Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), accused top officials at the FBI and DOJ of “putting all their chips on the Republicans losing the House” so that their Democratic allies can “shut down” the longstanding Intelligence Committee probe, which has unearthed information disputing claims of collusion in recent months.
Rep. Duffy interviewed Rep. Nunes for an upcoming episode of Duffy’s podcast, “Plaidcast.”
Nunes also lashed out at the U.S. media, accusing “90 percent” of reporters covering the Russia probe of being “essentially an arm of the Democratic party,” according to an advance copy of the interview shared with the Washington Free Beacon.
Nunes has been running the Intelligence Committee’s investigation into claims the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to cement the 2016 election. The committee has unearthed a body of evidence indicating senior officials at the FBI and DOJ worked to take down Trump on behalf of Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.
“One-hundred percent, they [the FBI and DOJ] are putting all their chips on the Republicans losing the House and all these investigations will shut down,” Nunes told Duffy.
