Nunes: Flynn is in good. Trump: Flynn’s fired. Spicer: Flynn quit

What a difference a day makes.

“House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) says he expects embattled national security adviser Michael Flynn to keep his job amid controversy over his talks with the Russian ambassador.” – The Hill, 2-13-17

Nunes told Bloomberg News on Monday, “there’s a lot of nothing there”.

Monday night, Trump fired Flynn, then Tuesday the White House basically changed the story and said he resigned, so I suspect it was a case of Flynn saying “you can’t fire me, I quit!”

Either way, Nunes isn’t going to investigate Flynn or the Russians, but is hot to find leaks in the FBI, and why calls to the Russians are monitored (maybe he’s not up on the legacy of the Patriot Act?). He’s not going to go after the collaborator, but he will go after those charged with catching them.

One thing is for sure – Nunes has been left holding the bag by the Trump administration, and it certainly doesn’t contain Hershey Kisses.

I keep seeing images in my head of a Keystone Cops movie, set at the White House and Capitol Hill.
