White House confirms President Trump’s decision to award the Medal of Freedom to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).
It’s official. The highest national award, the Medal of Freedom, President Trump will award to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).
“Congressman Nunes pursued the Russia Hoax at great personal risk and never stopped standing up for the truth. He had the fortitude to take on the media, the FBI, the Intelligence Community, the Democrat Party, foreign spies, and the full power of the Deep State. Devin paid a price for his courage…” said the White House in a statement.
As a rationale for Trump’s decision, the White House pointed to the year 2017 “when Congressman Nunes launched an investigation into the Obama-Biden administration’s misconduct during the 2016 election – and began to unearth the crime of the century. As a result of his work, he discovered that the infamous Steele Dossier was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. He found that a senior Justice Department attorney was married to one of the architects of the document. He learned that the Obama-Biden administration had issued Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to spy on President Trump’s campaign and illegitimately unmasked several innocent spying victims for political gain”
The Medal of Freedom is given to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.
Reactions to the news are mixed.
One lied repeatedly about his contacts with shadowy Ukrainian figures in an effort to betray American democracy.
