Executive Officer of Trump Media & Technology Devin Nunes says that the FBI has evidently been obstructing investigations based on the recent bombshell that dropped from the Durham investigation. 

News broke Tuesday that the FBI paid a Russian businessman as a confidential human source in the investigation of Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, despite knowing the businessman had ties to Moscow's intelligence services. The businessman's name is Igor Danchenko and he was eventually fired in the fall of 2020 for lying to agents on multiple occasions. 

"This is now the strongest evidence that we've seen that they obstructed the FBI, DOJ, and obstructed Congress' investigation," Nunes, the former Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said on the "Just the News, Not Noise" TV show.

"This is the best evidence that I have seen that these guys were conspiring to do this because you would not bring this guy (Igor Danchenko) on as a confidential human source when you know the dossier is bogus," Nunes continued. "They lied and misled us and they conspired to do it."

The discussion shifted to the politicization of the FBI and other federal agencies. 

"There has long been a group that worked with high level Obama and Biden administration officials back in 2015 and 2016," Nunes explained. "I don't know when they put this unit together, but it became a 'Get Trump, Get Republican' group subset buried within the DOJ and the FBI. We thought we had outed them back in 2017 and 2018. We thought we at least stopped the bleeding. Clearly, we did not because the same crew kept going. They worked on Mueller, they worked on the Whitmer case, they worked on on Jan.6, and they were involved in the Mar-a-Lago raid."

Nunes said he doesn't trust the FBI, especially with the current leadership of Christopher Wray. 

"We cannot trust after all this time that Wray has done one damn thing to clean up this agency," Nunes stated. "In fact, it's gotten worse. The American people know it's worse."
