The left apparently loves having intelligence agencies in the tank for their party.
They just really don’t like it when the truth gets exposed to the public.
Nancy Pelosi’s reaction the the release of the FISA memo was every bit as ridiculous as you’d expect it to be.
As reported by CBS
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) blasted President Donald Trump and House Republicans for their decision to release a controversial four-page memo alleging abuse of surveillance authority by the Justice Department and the FBI, saying it could ultimately cause a “constitutional crisis.”
“He has abdicated his responsibilities as commander in chief to protect the American people by protecting our intelligence sources and the rest,” she said of Trump. ““If the president uses this fake, horrible release of distorted intelligence as an excuse to fire [deputy attorney general Rod] Rosenstein or [special counsel Robert] Mueller, it could lead to a constitutional crisis.”
Trump announced Friday afternoon he was declassifying the memo, which was prepared by Republican staff of the House Intelligence Committee.
“The GOP memo is a disgrace,” Trump said in the Oval Office while meeting with a group of North Korean defectors. “It was declassified and let’s see what happens…But a lot of people should be ashamed.”
The president suggested that the FBI and Justice Department have favored Democrats over Republicans in the process that led to the release of the Republican memo alleging abuses of a surveillance law. Trump tweeted that they have “politicized the sacred investigative process” but added that “rank & file are great people.”
In Chicago for a town hall meeting on the Trump tax plan, Pelosi also called House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) a “stooge for the president.”
Pelosi noted Nunes was supposed to have recused himself from the Russia investigation last year, and she said he should resign for releasing what she called a release of “distorted intelligence.”
“He should not be the chairman of the committee,” Pelosi said.
