As far as we’re aware, Nunes nor his office has spoken out yet with reasoning behind his sudden early retirement from his congressional position — especially considering he appeared to be on the fast track to a chairman position on the Ways and Means Committee, should the Republican party regain control of the House after midterm elections.
However, PunchBowl News’ Jake Sherman is reporting that rumors indicate Nunes is leaving Capitol Hill for a position within ex-President Trump’s new digital media company — the very same company that’s already under heavy scrutiny with regard to where all their funding has come from.
A report from the New York Post on Nunes’ sudden retirement claims that sources expect the CA GOP congressman to soon be named the CEO of Donald’s new social media platform.
Nunes has, of course, been one of Donald Trump’s most loyal and devout defenders, especially through both of the ex-president’s impeachments in the House. While nothing has been solidly confirmed yet, we certainly wouldn’t be taken back by a high-up position with the ex-president’s newest pet project. Frankly, we’re just glad to not have to hear his mouth in Congress anymore.
