Rep. Nunes, ‘a fearless defender of truth,’ will be missed in Congress

In new role Nunes will lead charge to reestablish free, open internet

Fairfax, Va. – Americans for Limited Government President Richard Manning issued the following statement today in reaction to news that Rep. Devin Nunes will retire from Congress to work for the Trump Media Technology Group:

“Rep. Devin Nunes’s (R-Calif.) decision to retire from Congress at the end of 2021 to become the CEO of Trump Media Technology Group will be a true loss to the fight for freedom in Congress, but his unique knowledge and experience make him the best candidate for leading the charge to reestablish a free and open internet.

“Nunes was recognized as Americans for Limited Government’s Congressman of the Year in 2017 for his staunch defense of truth as the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and again in 2019 as he fearlessly exposed the onslaught of lies spewed by the disgraced Democrat Chairman Adam Schiff.

“Rep. Nunes is an example of the best of Congress.  A fearless defender of truth and limiting the expansion of the deep state, he will be very difficult to replace.  We look forward to working closely with him in his new, important role. Rep. Nunes has been a champion of expanding access to information and the unfettered exchange of ideas.  Nunes’s new role running Trump Media Technology Group will allow him to use the free enterprise system to break the stranglehold Silicon Valley titans have had over free speech. These titans have made a mockery of the idea of the internet as a great leveler between the powerful and everyone else.”
