Amazing what happens when Democrats get caught in the cross-hairs. Suddenly, the Republicans just aren’t playing fair.
That seems to be the sentiment behind the Democrats on the House Intelligence Community’s efforts to get their rebuttal memo to the Devin Nunes memo declassified and released to the public.
The panel, which on Friday released the Republican document, will consider whether to declassify the Democratic memo, which Democrats say will highlight flaws and other shortcomings in the Republicans’ memo, which President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday that the memo “totally vindicates” him in the Russia probe. The meeting will take place at 5 pm ET on Monday, one of the sources said….
Nadler’s talking points – which are separate from the official response by House Intel Committee Democrats – call the GOP-authored memo “deeply misleading,” and claim that Republicans are now “part and parcel to an organized effort to obstruct” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“Until now, we could only really accuse House Republicans of ignoring the President’s open attempts to block the Russia investigation,” Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee said in the four-page letter released on Saturday. The document provided a point-by-point rebuttal to the Republican memo alleging bias in Mueller’s probe of possible links between Russia and Trump’s campaign, according to Bloomberg’s summary.
Somehow all of this sunlight shining on the efforts of the FBI and the Department of Justice under the Obama Administration working toward getting Hillary Clinton elected president by conducting surveillance on members of Donald Trump’s campaign staff using a dossier full of made up crap is somehow blocking Robert Mueller investigating collusion between Trump’s team and the Russians.
What has Mueller found that the Democrats don’t want released to the public? Obviously something if they are working overtime to keep it a secret.
Whatever it is, the talking points aren’t covering it that’s for sure.
