Devin Nunes says Democrats tried to get nude pictures of Trump from Ukrainians

California Rep. Devin Nunes said a bizarre thing this morning at a questioning of Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire: “Of course, Democrats on this very committee negotiated with people they thought were Ukrainians in order to obtain nude pictures of Trump.”

Apparently, the confused gentleman was referring to an old Russian prank. According to Vice, two Russian comedians pranked House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff last year "claiming to possess naked photos of the president."

Via Vice: "At the time, Schiff directed the pranksters –– who posed as members of the Ukrainian Parliament –– to send their photos to the FBI." Somehow Nunes didn't get the memo.
