Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is leaving Congress at the end of this month to become the CEO of former President Trump’s new social media company.
“The time has come to reopen the Internet and allow for the free flow of ideas and expression without censorship,” Nunes said. “The United States of America made the dream of the Internet a reality and it will be an American company that restores the dream. I’m humbled and honored President Trump has asked me to lead the mission and the world-class team that will deliver on this promise.”
“Devin understands that we must stop the liberal media and Big Tech from destroying the freedoms that make America great,” Trump said in a statement. “America is ready for TRUTH Social and the end to censorship and political discrimination.”
Nunes is currently serving his 10th term in Congress and has been praised for his work in discrediting the Steele Dossier.
As the New York Post reported, “In 2019, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that the bureau’s Russia investigation was littered with errors and relied heavily on the [Steele Dossier], while former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe admitted to lawmakers last year that he would not have approved a June 2017 warrant application to monitor Page had he known the source of the supporting evidence.”
“As the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, with the entire weight of the legacy media and Washington establishment bearing down on him, Devin stood by his convictions on behalf of his constituents and hardworking Americans across the country,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said in a statement.
“And every step of the way, Devin was proven right. There is no better person prepared to compete head-to-head and lead an alternative to the big tech and big media cartel that has carried water for the Democrat Party for years than Devin.”
“Devin’s departure leaves a gaping hole in this institution, but his dedication to our country will persist,” McCarthy added.

Biden supports ‘exception’ to filibuster to ‘codify Roe v. Wade in the law’
Breaking Thursday, President Joe Biden gave his support to amend or drop the filibuster rule in order to restore perceived abortion rights lost following the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade on Friday.
While at the NATO summit in Spain, Biden said “The most important thing to be clear about is I believe we have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law, and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that.”
“And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this, requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision,” Biden added.
A filibuster requires 60 votes, and The Hill writes “There are not 50 senators who support changing the rules around the filibuster, however, making Biden’s suggestion unlikely to go anywhere.”
