John Oliver opened his show, Last Week Tonight, with an exploration of the growing scandal surrounding Republican House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes — something he has taken to calling “Stupid Watergate”
It’s “a scandal that we’ve been referring to as ‘Stupid Watergate,'” said Oliver because it had “all the potential consequences of Watergate but everyone involved is really stupid.”
Oliver described Nunes bizarre trip to the White House last week to receive classified intelligence from White House sources in no uncertain terms.
“Devin took what appears to be an unnecessary trip to tell what appears to be unimportant news to what may have been the source of the news itself.”
The fall-out from that trip has largely crippled the House investigation and led to growing calls for Nunes to recuse himself or resign.
