Pro-Chumph Police Union Chief Removed By Black Officers

Before coming out in support of a white supremacist…This guy should have checked his vote count.

Trump-loving police union chief ousted after black members revolt

Steve Loomis, the former president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, was ousted this week in the wake of a revolt by black police officers who were upset about his endorsement of President Donald Trump, among other factors.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Loomis lost his election race this week against former union president Jeff Follmer by just 38 votes. Loomis has long been a polarizing figure within the department, especially after he offered Trump a full-throated endorsement during the 2016 presidential election.

“Loomis has made headlines for several controversial issues, including having the union vote, and endorse, Donald Trump for President,” the Plain Dealer writes. “It was the first time in the union’s history that it endorsed a presidential candidate, sparking outrage from the Cleveland Police’s Black Shield, a separate union that represents black officers.”

Loomis has also stirred controversy in Cleveland in his attempts to appeal the firing of officer Timothy Loehmann, who fatally shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice in 2014, and for his criticism of Cleveland Browns players who knelt during the national anthem to protest police violence in the United States.

Another Chumph Lackey Bites the Dust – Devin Nunes Off House Intelligence Committee

Unbelievable the number of bodies hitting the floor during just the first three months of the Chumph regime.

Next in line, Devin Nunes, former Chair of the House Intelligence Committee – now under investigation for releasing classified intelligence material. Were Mr Nunes an ordinary citizen, and not protected by fellow Republicans to whom Party is more important than the Constitution or Patriotism…

He’s be looking out from a jail cell, dressed in the “Oh so stylish”…Orange jumpsuit. Nunes worked desperately to cover-up the Putin’s Bitch Treason, and to submarine the House investigation into collusion with the Russians. He got caught.

Devin Nunes – Should be doing the perp walk out of Congress…

Devin Nunes Steps Aside; Ethics Committee Investigating for Spilling Secrets

The Republican is now officially being probed for what he was so worked up about: allegedly disclosing classified intelligence.

Rep. Devin Nunes said Thursday he is stepping aside as chairman of the House intelligence committee because he is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for allegedly disclosing intelligence without proper authorization.

“The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power,” Nunes said in a statement, adding that the allegations against him are “baseless.”

Nunes said in a hastily-arranged press conference last month he had come into possession of classified information showing Trump transition team members were “incidentally collected” by U.S. intelligence agencies during their surveillance of foreign targets and improperly “unmasked.” Nunes made his claim following a late-night trip to the White House where he reportedly met with senior administration officials who played a role in giving him classified information. (Nunes maintains they were not his original source.)

Rep. Mike Conaway, a Republican, will take Nunes’s position as chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence as the Ethics Committee begins its probe.

The Ethics Committee is truly bipartisan, with an equal number of Democrats and Republicans. The 18a investigation, as its known, has subpoena power and may also look into what Nunes told Speaker Paul Ryan and President Donald Trump when he briefed them following his March 22 press conference.

Ryan said Nunes staying on would be a “distraction” for the investigation into Russia’s interference in the election and possible collusion with Trump’s team. Ryan earlier expressed support for Nunes.

“He continues to have that trust, and I know he is eager to demonstrate to the Ethics Committee that he has followed all proper guidelines and laws,” Ryan said in a statement. “In the meantime, it is clear that this process would be a distraction for the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in our election. Chairman Nunes has offered to step aside as the lead Republican on this probe, and I fully support this decision.”

Nunes had not briefed Rep. Adam Schiff, his Democratic counterpart on the committee, before running to Ryan and Trump. That decision blew up an already strained committee, leading to recriminations from Democrats that Nunes was acting like a presidential pawn. The committee’s downward spiral led to suspended hearings on the Russia probe, putting the onus on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
