Devin Nunes wants the Mueller report burned before Americans can see evidence of Trump's crimes and cover-ups.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), one of the most virulently pro-Trump members of Congress, wants the Mueller report to be burned up and said he doesn't care what the investigation found.
"I don't really care what the Mueller report says," Nunes ranted to Fox News on Sunday, adding that he believes "the Mueller special counsel should have never been appointed."
Nunes told the hosts on the pro-Trump right-wing propaganda network that the investigation — which has accumulated criminal charges against 37 people with 5 prison sentences and 199 criminal counts — is "fraudulent."
America hasn't seen the report, but Nunes insisted, "We can just burn it up. It is a partisan document."
Trump has lied and said the Mueller report exonerates him of wrongdoing, but the plaintive wails of his chief congressional ally indicate continued concern on the right for what is yet to be unveiled.
Thus far the only information known on the Mueller report comes from a brief letter written by Attorney General William Barr, Trump's hand-picked law enforcement agent.
Democrats in Congress are demanding that the full report be released so the world can see what Mueller found, not just the most Trump-friendly interpretation.
His desire to simply "burn" what has been uncovered is more of the same, an instance of one of Trump's most ardent defenders and co-conspirators seeking to cover up evidence.
The American people have repeatedly rejected the weak case to ignore Trump's misdeeds that Nunes continues to make. People want to know what Trump did and how he did it, and Nunes' cries to walk away from the scene of the crime are likely to fall on deaf ears for all but the most devoted Trump supporters.
