The former Speaker of the House, California’s lefty Democrat Nancy Pelosi who herself is the queen of bizarre behavior, is now out there accusing Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) of exhibiting “bizarre” behavior with his conduct over the ongoing witch hunt into purported ties between Donald Trump and Russia.
Pelosi is desperately trying to whip up suspicions that Rep. Nunes is lying about evidence he said he witnessed about Obama’s alleged surveillance of the Trump campaign.
“Whether the president was aware or not is one thing. The Trump administration certainly was, and it is very bizarre,” Pelosi told the Today Show Friday morning.
“I’ve never seen behavior this bizarre on the part of the chairman.”

“I have a long experience in the intelligence committee — served with Republican and Democratic chairmen,’ Pelosi continued. “I’ve been the top Democrat there myself. I’ve never seen behavior this bizarre on the part of the chairman.”
This is the same woman who said we had to pass Obamacare so we could “see what’s in it.”
She’s the same blind partisan who blurted out that Democrats aren’t driven by ideology.
Then there was her strange performance when she was talking about Trump’s budget and rambled, stuttered, and spouted words that simply made no logical sense. If you want bizarre and quirky, look at this presser that was shared liberally on social media…
In any case, so far, even with the government desperately trying since early last year to find ties between Trump and Russia, there has been no evidence uncovered that Trump was assisted by Russia in his bid to win the White House. But liberals like Pelosi continue to insist there are such ties, despite the paucity of evidence.
Earlier this month Rep. Nunes, the head of the House Intelligence Committee, said he had seen evidence that the Obama administration was conducting surveillance on Trump, just as the president controversially stated in a tweet. Since his revelation, the left has been gunning for him.
Indeed as soon as he revealed what he had seen as head of the Intel Committee, liberals began making all sorts of crazy accusations. In one case they insisted it was “unusual” that he had visited the White House before making his announcement. With this the left was trying to hint that Nunes was colluding with Trump on the announcement.
In another case, liberals were trying to make something of the way Nunes travels around D.C. into something suspicious. But, the truth is, his travel from office to office is no different than any other Intel Committee chairman.
Then the left tried to gin up opposition to Nunes by illogically saying he should “recuse himself” from the investigation into Russia on the committee. But the truth is, the committee is not a court-based or legalistic entity. It’s political and not something anyone should ever be expected to “recuse” themselves from. This liberal smear proves that Democrats don’t know what the definition of “recuse” even is.
