Billboard takes a jab at Republican Rep. Devin Nunes
CLOVIS, Calif. (FOX26) —
A new billboard near Republican Rep. Devin Nunes' district office takes a jab at the congressman, showing him as a Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin puppet.
The billboard, located in Clovis at Herndon and Highway 168, displays Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, on a leash held by Trump who is on a leash held by Putin. "You’ve been a good boy Devin,” it states.
The billboard was purchased by Andrew Janz for Congress. Janz is a candidate for California's 22nd congressional district.
Officials with Janz's campaign say Nunes is currently under an ethics investigation for improperly handling classified information on the Russian government’s interference in the 2016 election. He was forced to recuse himself from the investigation after it was revealed he potentially disclosed classified information and lied to the public to cover up Trump’s close ties with Russia. Nunes has repeatedly interfered with the investigation even after his recusal.
