About that memo…

Nunes in a future frog march?

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.

    But “her emails” exposed double, triple top secret info. Right?

  2. After Nunes worked with the WH to pull that stunt about “unmasking”, I’d be pretty sure he’s working with them now. And so odd that people with no clearance (like Seb Gorka) think they know exactly what’s in it despite the classified info.

  3. Well, of course it will compromise sources; Daddy Putin want to clean up all those loose lips so he can continue to enjoy his complete immunity from sanctions.

    The GOP has GOT to have some members who are smart enough to know that Pooty poot is NOT THEIR FRIEND. What if the Russian meddling in the 2018 election means it’s their turn in the barrel? That would maximize chaos and confusion.

    Rumor has it that this memo will backfire bigly on their dumb asses.

    • In reality, yes, but if it gives the orange-hued shitgibbon cover to purge the FBI do you expect the GOP to give a fuck? trump is steadily enacting their agenda; taking a wrecking ball to the administration, ethnically cleansing the country, appointing reactionary judges at a steady clip, stuffing the bureaucracy with incompetent hacks and eager grifters, and busily demolishing our standing in the world. They’re as happy as pigs in shit. trump could literally walk on stage grab a woman form the audience, rape her on camera then shoot her in the head, and they wouldn’t do a damned thing. Mueller’s investigation is threatening their backup Pence, so no impeachment will happen.
