The Daily Beast has a bit of a scoop: Devin Nunes Won’t Say If He Worked With White House on Anti-FBI Memo.
“The Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee refused to answer when a colleague asked him if he had coordinated his incendiary surveillance memo with the White House, The Daily Beast has learned… According to sources familiar with the exchange, Nunes made a few comments that didn’t answer the question before finally responding, “I’m not answering.”
And so we now have some possible lines of inquiry for Mr. Mueller, you know, about collaborators helping the Russian Usurper obstruct justice. Mr. Nunes has a funny definition of recusal, which seems to be get involved up to your eyebrows.
The WaPo reports that DOJ #2 Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray (the bag man for firing McCabe) met with John Kelly to argue against releasing the memo on national security grounds. Presumably there must be something in it from sources that could be endangered if revealed?
Rosenstein and Wray (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, redux?) noted that releasing the memo sets a dangerous precedent for members of Congress releasing confidential information to further their own political goals. Shocked, shocked I say.
Comrade Trump has not read the damn memo, but you know, he has already said on live mic that he would, “100%,” so this is just another cliffhanger from the set of The Apprentice.
