There’s good news and bad news for America. The bad news is we’re losing one of our most ardent defenders of America First policies in Congress. Devin Nunes is reportedly retiring from Capitol Hill. The good news is he is allegedly taking a job offer from President Trump to be the CEO of one of his media companies.
According to Fox News White House Correspondent Jacqui Heinrich:
NEW: Rep Devin Nunes is retiring. I’m told he “got a job offer that he can’t refuse” — CEO of a new Trump media org.

According to the Visalia Times Delta:
The Tulare native will exit the House of Representatives after he was “presented with a new opportunity to fight for the most important issues I believe in.”
“I’m writing to let you know I’ve decided to pursue this opportunity, and therefore will be leaving the House of Representatives at the end of 2021,” an emailed statement to his constituents reads. “I will deeply miss being your congressman. It’s been the honor of a lifetime to represent you, and I thank you for the trust you put in me through all these years.”
That opportunity will come in the form of a chief executive position at former President Donald Trump’s new company, which is launching a social media platform called TruthSocial. The platform will “provide an outlet that encourages open global conversation without discrimination against political ideology,” according to a press release.
“Congressman Devin Nunes is a fighter and a leader,” Trump said in a statement. “Devin understands that we must stop the liberal media and Big Tech from destroying the freedoms that make America great. America is ready for TRUTH Social and the end to censorship and political discrimination.”
Nunes was a staunch supporter of President Trump from his position as Chair of the House Intelligence Committee and has been a thorn in the side of current chair Adam Schiff since Democrats took control of the House in 2019.
