A home democrat from California called GOP Rep. Devin Nunes out for comparing pro-blaming Democrats for belonging to a & # 39; cult & # 39; – and brought her own horrific experiences to the Jonestown massacre.
Rep. Jackie Speier struck back after Nunes, a Californian republican, said that Democrats who were investigating President Trump's accusation as a cult & # 39; commodities and media members like & # 39; cult followers & # 39; goods.
The comments from Nunes were among the most emotional of a debate on the floor of the House about a resolution that adopted the process of investigating a democratic accusation.
Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) condemned comments from GOP representative Devin Nunes comparing the demoral investigation into accusation with a & # 39; cult & # 39;
& # 39; Devin Nunes, who calls the inquiry mission of the Intelligence Committee a cult, is indisputable (sic) & # 39 ;, Speier wrote. & # 39; I know about cults. Cults are led by maniacal narcissists who expect complete admiration and distance from independent thinking. I suggest that Mr. Nunes looks elsewhere. & # 39;
Nunes was in House Intelligence chairman Rep. Wednesday. Adam Schiff and his committee investigated.
& # 39; What we see now among Democrats in the intelligence committees, now in the (secured Capitol facility), is like a cult. This is a group of people who loyally follow their leader as he bounces from one bizarre conspiracy theory to another, & said Nunes.
Speier called the comment from Nunes despicable and wrote: & # 39; I know about cults & # 39;
Jackie Speier, an assistant to Congressman Leo Ryan, was taken from a plane in Georgetown on November 19, 1978, after arriving from Jonestown where Speier was shot five times and Ryan and four others were ambushed and killed by members of the People & # 39; s Temple. Congressman Leo Ryan led a group that went to Guyana to investigate reports of abuse and human rights violations by the People's Temple and its leader, Jim Jones

American cult leader Jim Jones (1931 – 1978), circa 1975. Jones founded the Peoples Temple in Jonestown, Guyana, where he and more than 900 of his followers died in a massive suicide in November 1978
& # 39; And the media are the cult followers, permanently stationed outside the committee rooms, pretending to take everything seriously, because they also support the goal of removing the president from office, & # 39; he added, and shot at the press.
In 1978, Speier was shot five times as a young assistant to Rep. Leo J. Ryan on a trip to Guyana where she joined lawmakers to visit cult leader Jim Jones.
Speier was shot near a remote runway and had to wait 22 hours for help, as she said Roll Call in 2015. Ryan, who now represents the California congressional district that Speier now owns, was killed. Jones and 900 of his followers then died of cyanide poisoning.
