Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois went on CNN this week and made outrageous claims about Rep. Devin Nunes and President Trump with absolutely nothing to back it up. He even said “prove me wrong” at one point as if the burden of proof is on the accused rather than him.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Democratic congressman says Trump and Devin Nunes are conspiring, despite zero evidence
Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., claimed Friday that House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., may be conspiring to leak classified documents to President Trump’s legal team.
Naturally, the Illinois congressman has zero evidence to back up this claim.
Quigley claimed Friday on CNN that Nunes attended a classified briefing at the Department of Justice in order to gather important background information on special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. The way Quigley tells it, Nunes’ real purpose at the briefing may have been to “turn this information over to the Trump legal team to help them prepare their defense.”
CNN host John Berman interjected to say, “Alright, that last part is an explosive charge right there. You’re charging that the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee [Nunes] is handing over information to the president’s personal legal team. Do you have any proof of that?”
“No, I certainly don’t. What is their purpose?” Quigley responded. “Prove me wrong.”

Do Democrats have any idea how insane this comes off to normal Americans? Apparently not.
