More projection from Trump's puppet on the House Intelligence Committee.

Rep. Devin Nunes made an appearance on Fox's Sunday Morning Futures, promising the release of transcripts from his committee's farce of a Russia probe, and had the nerve to accuse anyone who takes the accusations that team Trump colluded with the Russians during the presidential election seriously of being Kool-Aid drinkers who live in an alternative universe.

BARTIROMO: There's been a call from your colleague for the president to declassify documents related to the trump Russia investigation. You've been asking the president to do just that. You also have depositions of important interviews that you've done. Will you declassify all of those interviews?

NUNES: Yes, Maria. So, the American people now are beginning to see the walls are beginning to close in on the corrupt officials at the Department of Justice and the FBI. Many of them have been fired. Many of them are on leave. Many of them have been demoted, but you are slowly starting to see this collapse in on them, even though the mainstream media is not covering this, because they seem so focused on drinking the Russian Kool-Aid on terms of, what's... whose getting indicted by the Special Counsel and instead focus on look, was there any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, which the answer is "No."

So, we've known this for a long time. Our committee really led this investigation. If you look at a lot of the facts that are now out, it's the facts that we found on the House Intelligence Committee. So, we believe that the depositions that we took, I think for nearly about seventy people, those need to be published and they need to be published I think before the election.

Published, I mean put out for the American people to review, so that they can see the work that we did, and they can see all of the people that were in interviewed by us and their answers to those questions. I think full transparency is in order here, so I expect to make those available from our committee to the American public in the next few weeks.

BARTIROMO: So let me just go back here. This is breaking news right now. You are going to declassify your depositions of some seventy individuals related to the Trump Russia collusion narrative?

NUNES: Yeah, so some of them are not even classified. Some of them are just held at the committee. So matter of fact I think seventy or eighty percent of them are not classified. The ones that are classified we will have to send to the department of, or the Director of National Intelligence to declassify, but we hope that would only take a matter of days and they don't do their normal foot dragging where they slow roll and we don't get these before the election.

But just for the sake of full transparency, because there's so much that's out there, that's misinformation or disinformation on this Russia-gate fiasco, that we need this information out before the election and that's why we've been asking the president of the United States to declassify many more document s as it relates to not only Bruce Ohr but also with the Carter Page FISA.

BARTIROMO: Will the president declassify those documents before the mid-term elections?

NUNES: Well look, I think he doesn't have any choice. The president talks a lot about how this Russia investigation has hampered his administration and I totally agree with the president on that and if the president wants the American people to really understand just how broad and invasive this investigation has been to many Americans, and how unfair it has been, he has no choice but to declassify.

And I will tell you, as we continue to move forward here, it's in the best interest of our intelligence agencies to have full transparency on this, because you're really dealing with many Americans who are living in an alternative universe, who have drank this Russia Kool-Aid.

There is a large number of Americans, Maria, I know it's probably not the people watching your show right now, but you'd be shocked at the number of Americans who have drank the Russia Kool-Aid and they actually believe that Donald Trump is under control of Vladimir Putin.


NUNES: They actually believe that House Republicans are somehow under the control of Vladimir Putin.


NUNES: I bet 10, 15, 20 percent of Americans believe this, and it's absolutely nuts.

Anything to keep the rubes watching Fox distracted from the actual indictments in the Mueller probe and the walls closing in around Trump, his family, and his administration.
