On Fridays Late Show, Stephen Colbert traveled to Washington, D.C. to grill lawmakers about the seemingly endless investigation into the Trump campaigns possible collusion with Russia. While he was there, he released his very own redacted memo about Devin Nunes.
You remember about a month or so ago when America had memo fever? the host asked Monday night. There was #ReleaseTheMemo, which was about a memo written by House Intelligence Committee Chair and youngest man at the seniors brunch, Devin Nunes.
While on Capitol Hill, Colbert tried to get Nunes colleagues to the fill in the blank on his redacted memo with an insult about the divisive congressman, but neither Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff nor GOP Rep. Jeff Flake would take the bait.
So as much fun as we had down there, ultimately what we wanted was for Nunes to respond to us, a comedy show, but say what you want about that guy, he's not that dumbis what I thought, Colbert added.
Thats because over the weekend, Nunes called into Neil Cavutos Fox Business show and called Colberts jokes a danger to the country. The left controls not only the universities in this country, but they also control Hollywood in this country, and the mainstream media, so conservatives in this country are under attack, Nunes said on Fox. They attack people who are trying to get to the truth.
He took the bait! Colbert exclaimed.
The congressman claimed not to know whether or not Colbert reached out to him for an interview, but as the host revealed, he did speak to members of Nunes staff, who rebuffed him and said he wasnt allowed to film in their office.
Either your staff didnt tell you that I charged into your office, or youre not telling the truth, Colbert told him. So is Devin Nunes a liar? Not that I know of.
