Feb 2, 2018  •  Post A Comment

On Friday afternoon The New York Times, among other media outlets, published the Nunes memo, approved by President Trump and released to the public by the U.S. House of Representatives.

In its introduction to the memo The Times writes, “House Republicans released a previously secret memo written by Republican staff members of the House Intelligence Committee and declassified by President Trump. The memo claims that F.B.I. officials abused their authority and favored Democrats in the early stages of the Russia inquiry. The documents released on Friday include a letter from the White House counsel to the head of the House committee, Representative Devin Nunes of California, and the memo itself.”

  1. the most boring El Trumpo news all year … at least our crooked leader normally makes for fun
    and crazy news … this one put me to sleep …

  2. This is devastating to the Democratic party. This corruption at the highest levels of the FBI and DOJ is stunning. But this is what happens when the press drools all over and kisses the boots of ANY President regardless of party. For the year leading up to the 2008 election, and then for 8 years of Obama, the press fawned, swooned, got tingles up their legs etc… And this led former President Obama to operate completely unchecked. To the point where our IRS, FBI and DOJ were weaponized against private American citizens. If you doubt this, you must have missed the news that our Federal Government had to “settle” with hundreds of Tea Party & Patriot 501C-3’s. They admitted they singled them out purely on their political viewpoints. The Government had to pay several million dollars to these groups (that’s YOUR money America). But they accomplished their mission: Each of these groups were sidelined during the 2012 Presidential campaign allowing Obama to defeat Romney. And that’s a fundamental problem with campaign laws. If you cheat to win, you still get to win. More memos will be coming out. Heads are going to roll. The FBI and DOJ blatantly lied about “National Security being at risk” if the memo was released. I read the memo. There was nothing in there at all that damaged National Security. They are in major CYA mode now and going forward. This is disheartening. It will be interesting to see what future Republican memos state. And it will be interesting to see the Democratic memo in response to the Republican memo released last Friday.

  3. There is a lot of spin around this by both sides, but the one question that can’t be answered – “If this wasn’t critical to getting the warrant, why was it included?”
