CNN’s Don Lemon: Devin Nunes Looked Like ‘Shill for the White House’ Today

CNN’s Don Lemon had some words of criticism tonight for House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes after disclosed the “incidental collection” of Trump team communications earlier today.

He got into it with former Congressman Jack Kingston over Nunes leaving the other committee members “in the dark,” telling him “it seems that his credibility is in question now.”

The top Democrat on the committee, Adam Schiff, slammed Nunes and said earlier today that he needs to decide whether he’s the chair of an independent investigation or if “he is going to act as a surrogate of the White House.”

Lemon himself observed tonight that because Nunes was on the Trump transition team himself, his actions today “made him look like a shill for the White House.”

Kingston defended Nunes as a man of honor and said the intel committee has generally been “way too public” with all of this.
