BEHOLD! ‘The Memo’

Listen, this “memo” boondoggle is so laughably transparent in terms of what it is Devin Nunes and Trump are trying to do, that I’m not even sure what to say to anyone who takes it seriously, but on the off chance you do, we’ve embedded the whole thing below.

Essentially, it tries to argue that the FBI and the DoJ were concealing their anti-Trump bias in the course of monitoring Carter Page. The “evidence” presented is, well, seemingly flimsy but I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m a FISA expert. I mean, it doesn’t seem to discredit the investigation and it doesn’t seem to suggest that it was wrong to monitor Carter Page. Additionally, it basically admits that the investigation was already ongoing prior to the Page FISA applications and on top of that, it fails to mention any other evidence that was used to obtain the warrants in a pretty blatant attempt to try and make is seem as though the dossier was the only thing that was involved, an absurd proposition.

Oh, and although I’m not a FISA expert, Asha is:


And then there’s this:

Implicated in this allegedly nefarious plot are all the people you’d expect to implicated given what it is Trump’s trying to do. In fact, it almost seems like he could have sent Nunes a list of people who he wanted named because there’s Comey, McCabe, Yates, and Rosenstein.

Only one of those people hasn’t yet been fired or otherwise forced out and that person is Rosenstein who just happens to be overseeing the Mueller probe. Imagine that. And here’s what Trump said when a reporter asked him this morning if he still had confidence in Rosenstein:

Yes, “you’ll figure it out.”

So basically, he’s going to try and use what you’ll read below to get rid of Rosenstein and put someone else in charge of the Mueller probe and you can bet that someone else will “figure out” a reason to curtail or else shut it down altogether.

If you have a different read on this, do let us know.

  1. As a former FISA “expert”, I’ll tell you that expertise has zero relevance to the situation at hand…and that if you want to talk about a big fat “nothing burger”–this is it.

    The irony is that this President has now released more classified material/intelligence in his first year than HRC did…her emails were not TS…they were “confidential”, and secret noforn at most…

    This guy…

    1. Natasha Fatale
      who really give sh&^%%.
      the chances of him finishing his term are slim.
      he won’t get a second term. the market and poor people will see to that.
      our .gov is corrupt.
      the joke is on the american people.
      and now we are discovering it.
      like all empires (DM markets) politics will end it all, well that and the bond guys/gals.
      just a quote from a VC conference in early 2016.
      but hay–all i care about is being on the right side of the trade.
      good luck to you anyway.

  2. So, when and who will eventually yank this total fruitcake out of the WH? In his stupid speech yesterday to his GOP idiots – did you see him introduce Cornyn, look at him and speak directly to him … then a few names later he was astonished that Cornyn’s name had been omitted and wondered how that happened — better to see it, here, watch:

    What the hell is it doing to take to get rid of him !? A world disaster?

    1. Somebody needs to fact-check Dr. Ronny Jackson’s credentials or his childrens’ bank accounts in light of the ludicrous press conference Ronny gave singing the praises of Trump’s world greatest health as if he were Vic Tanny!!

      1. I took that information/diagnosis to my doctor and asked for a re-evaluation of my chart — she suggested to go see Dr. Ronny.

        The people inside the WH are all corrupt, some before they arrived there and some since they arrived there! (I had to ask Google who the hell is Vic Tanny) LOL

        Now there is a horrible attack ad against Rod Rosenstein – just shown by Jake Tapper. Absolutely unbelievable how far this has gone.
