Trump: ‘Devin Nunes Should Get the Medal of Honor’


President Donald Trump, on Thursday, called for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) to receive the Medal of Honor.

During a sprawling rant in a phone interview with Fox & Friends, the president lauded the California Congressman for his efforts investigating former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

“People like Devin Nunes, he should get — if this all turns out like everyone thinks it will, Devin Nunes should get the Medal of Honor,” Trump said. “He is really — what he’s gone through, and his bravery. He should get a very important medal.”

Trump later clarified his comments, saying he’d call for Nunes to be given the Medal of Freedom instead — as it is an honor reserved for civilians.
