    Let’s do it! Let’s see how crooked the Trump Campaign was that they were the interest of the FBI and intelligence agencies!

    The memo that every Republican voted to make public and every democrat voted to not make public, you think will show Trump as crooked? What?


    Being honest, the memo isn't much. Its a summary of some of the evidence Nunes has seen. I'd rather see the evidence and not a partisan summary of it. I would also rather see Horowitz report in a few weeks.

    Hey, we actually agree, both on it not being much and it being a partisan summary. The memo was a hodge podge of Nune's thoughts on what was found. Hopefully, the context behind the information is also released so that people won't make wrong conclusions; and yes, if it had been bipartisan. But the House investigation has been suspect (putting it mildly) from the get go. And from what I understand democrats didn't even get to be briefed by the IG. And the republican majority voted down a memo presented by Schiff.

    There is a huge uptick in the urgency from the Trump side of things ever since the Trump interview with Muller was announced.

    Look I am all for law and order and if FISA warrants were improperly obtained then we should review that. But it seems strange that the guy who needed to "recuse" himself from the investigation is the one whistleblowing on the situation. The entire judicial committee had access to the documents he did...none of the other republicans thought it was so urgent to get the word out like he did?

    I am not saying it is impossible that a bunch of partisan people made out to undermine an outsiders legitimacy, but I, for one, have faith in our institutions, rather than individuals. That is what has made america strong. Why have republicans lost faith in our country?

    Adam Schiff refused to allow any republicans to see his memo. Then he demanded the republicans vote to make it public despite none of them having seen it. Instead republicans voted that everyone in the house can read it (same process Republican memo went through). Schiff is playing politics and you got played and embarrassed.

    You mean most House Republicans.... some of them didn't want to release it..... Senate Republicans didn't want it release or Trump's own DOJ.

    I'm sure the memo will show that Trump was an interest early on and only further cements how he hires the best....

    Isn't it the summary according to Nunes?

    You and me both.... which is why there's a push to not release a partisan memo by a partisan congressman.

    Horowitz started delivarying the 1.2 million documents from his investigation to the house two weeks ago. That's why this stuff is coming out now. All of this stems from his investigation. He will release his recommendations in a few weeks.

    No, I mean the house intelligence committee voted on party lines to release it. Senate has not seen it. Are you really so absurd to think house democrats wouldn't want the memo (written by a republican) made public that showed Trump as crooked? Good greif.

    So you would also want the Democratic Memo released right? The one that every single Republican voted to keep hidden from the nation.

    LOL like Nunes? Except he has the president behind him to push it through..... this is purely partisan by Nunes. Why not vote to release both memos to the public for transparency?

    And folks want this to go through the proper channels instead of using it in a partisan manner.

    House Dems don't want some partisan memo use to discredit Mueller's investigation. All this will do is push Mueller to release his findings sooner than the GOP wants. It seems this memo only further solidifies wrongdoing by the Trump campaign, which is why Nunes and company are trying their best to discredit the entire investigation .

    The Democratic memo is going through the exact same process as Republican. The difference is that nunes let both sides see his before voting to release to public. Schiff wanted intelligence committee to make his memo public despite the majority not having seen it.

    It did? It's usual for this stuff to be released in this manner? It's not, don't be dishonest.

    Nope. Both memos going through same process. Made available to house for a week then voted on to be made public. Schiff wanted intelligence committee to publicly release a memo they had not seen. Thats unusual. He dooped you. hes playing politics.

    Usual process is for democrats to leak to the press. This was the correct and legal process. SChiff is known for leaking everything to the press, ever wonder why he hasn't leaked his memo?

    With the exception that the memo that would be beneficial to the President is being released, who ultimately decides if it gets to be released.

    I will give it the GOP, they played the game with this memo, much better than that transcript. The GOP succeeded in pushing their memo forward with their narrative, where they failed with the transcript.

    Very advantageous to the president who is under investigation for high crimes....

    The vote on Schiff's will come in a week after the people voting on it have had a chance to read it and determine if it contains sensitive material. This isn't complicated. Schiff knew the republicans would not vote to release a memo they haven't been allowed to read. Its the intelligence committee so they need to see what they are making public. He did this so you and other liberals could act stupid like this. Republicans responded by voting to make the memo (which only dems have read) available to everyone in the house. Same as republican memo. BTW Schiff still isn't showing any house members his memo (if it even exists).







    why wont they vote to make this memo nobody has seen public ?!?!?!?!? dmoney, you (and NewRoxFan) are getting dooped and more over you are letting yourself get dooped by being incredibly stupid.

    mueller has no white house staffers on his team.
