Secret House Republican memo causes new rifts over Russia investigation
Los Angeles Times ^ | January 19, 2018 | by Chris Megerian

Conservative Republicans are pushing to release a memo containing classified information about the federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign, sparking new controversy in a case that has already caused deep partisan rifts.

The contents of the four-page memo, which was written by staff working with Rep. Devin Nunes have not been publicly revealed. But President Trump’s allies in Congress say that they are explosive.

Democrats on the committee have dismissed the memo as a dishonest attempt to undermine the Russia investigation, and Rep. Jackie Speier called it a “pack of lies.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz said the information was “jaw-dropping.” Rep. Darrell Issa said Americans would be “outraged” if they read the memo.

But Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin), another committee member, said the memo was filled with misinformation and should not be released.

“It is a perversion of the facts to brainwash our members and protect the president,” he said.

Hillary Clinton could not lose the 2016 election. She collaborated with the Hussein administration and it's top FBI/DOJ hacks to gather information that the Clinton administration would use to destroy Donald J. Trump, his family, businesses, and associates.

Then Trump shocked the world. And won.

If it’s a “pack of lies” and a “perversion of the facts”, then the democrats should have no problem with releasing the memo. After all, that would serve to harm and embarrass the Repubs, right?

Release The Memo!

Instead of releasing the memo, it will be methodically marginalized by the Democrat Thug Party and MSM.

This is exactly what the spineless GOP-e permits time after time.

Rep. Jackie Speier called it a “pack of lies.”

The definition of "lies" in this case is "anything I disagree with".

Release the memo and all the backing information you can for now. The DOJ obviously isn’t going to do anything about what happened until you do, and they have nomother choice.

I’m sorry, but that Q stuff is so corny. Is it real? Maybe, but it sure seems written like a dirty novel for lonely ladies.

Thanks Oldeconomybuyer. DNC talking points regurgitated by a Partisan Media Shill from the Los Angeles Slimes.
