Nunes, the chairman of the House Foreign Intelligence Committee, has had an interesting several months. A Facebook Page for the site had at least 6,400 Likes on Monday morning. Congressional Republicans want to build a wall separating GOP and Democratic staffers on Capitol Hill, a new report says.

But the outlet was paid for by Nunes' campaign committee, according to small print at the bottom of its website first noted by POLITICO.

The website/Facebook page is vintage Nunes, a continuation of one of his tried and true conspiracy theories: The "mainstream" media ignores all of the real stories (in Nunes' view) and peddles nothing but "fake news". The site is better described as a conservative content farm, as it only publishes heavily aggregated news and commentary from other publications, with the resulting posts occasionally used as fodder for shares on Nunes's mailed-in Facebook page. Political campaigns should not be allowed to label themselves news organizations.

Nunes and his campaign may have intended big things for, but the result so far is as transparently inadequate as Nunes efforts to defend President Trump have been. I mean, they refuse, they absolutely refuse to cover the truth.

The congressman's chief of staff, Anthony Ratekin, declined to comment in an email to Politico.

"It was clear from the development of the Democratic memo from the very beginning that they packed it full of sources and methods".

The mention by Politico is clearly benefiting the website in terms of traffic.

In recent days, Nunes has painted himself as a victim of biased mainstream media coverage, snarking at CNN's Manu Raju lately that "democracy dies in darkness" while brushing off questions about the memo. He said the sparsely-attended meeting came at the same time lawmakers were publicly debating their differences over a GOP memo that criticized methods the Federal Bureau of Investigation used to obtain a surveillance warrant on a onetime Trump campaign associate.

Then he became the subject of an ethics investigation after he traveled to the White House, examined classified information provided to him by Trump administration aides, and disclosed the information in a clumsy attempt to validate the president's false claims that his phone was tapped by then-Preisdent Obama during the 2016 campaign.

Democrats say the memo is rife with inaccuracies and cherry-picked information to trash the Federal Bureau of Investigation and cast doubt on the ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
