Rush Limbaugh summarizes Kim Strassel’s Wall Street Journal column of this past Friday, today’s Wall Street Journal editorial (obviously written by Kim), and a related Washington Post story in which the deep state strikes back against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. It’s a complicated story to unravel. In the transcript posted at his site, Rush links to each of the three sources and summarizes the salient details.
Close reading is required, and Rush zooms in to provide it. There seems to be a serious question whether the FBI had an informant in the Trump campaign.
At last word, Chairman Nunes and Rep. Trey Gowdy had met with Rod Rosenstein, FBI and intelligence authorities. They agreed to keep talking about obtaining the documents in issue (statement embedded in tweet below).

What is going on here? Kim Strassel comments today in her tweet below. Support Devin Nunes!
Alternate (and reality) read: DOJ/FBI don't want HPSCI to see what shenanigans they were up to in 2016. And now gunning for Nunes, cuz he won't give up. Side note: Ryan said in his presser this morning that he's read HPSCI request and it is "wholly appropriate." https://t.co/FJH66GiuJZ
