Conclusion? Release ALL the documents.
You know, I’m really starting to see this as a power struggle. Nunes and Schiff are just trying to outdo each other. The memo wars have become more about who can come out on top rather than an effort to expose the truth. But I digress.
House Intelligence Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-CA) released his memo Sunday and claimed it refuted the memo released by Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA). Of course, it took no time for Nunes to refute Schiff’s memo, leading Schiff to release his own fact sheet. (See what I mean? They both want the last word.)
Background: Nunes released his memo earlier this month that alleged the FBI used the disputed dossier on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, authored by Christopher Steele, to receive a warrant to spy on Trump’s former campaign member Carter Page.
Schiff released his memo this weekend that he claims counters Nunes’ memo, but it confirmed the main point of the GOP memo…that the officials used information from the unverified source to get that warrant. There were also some other agreements with the GOP memo.
But the power struggle between these two continues because there are parts of Nunes’ memo that remain unclear. Here are the main refutations Nunes provided:
Honestly, I don’t care how much information they used. The fact is they used information from an unverified dossier that even former FBI Director James Comey called salacious to get a warrant to spy on a U.S. citizen.
Here is the entire response from Nunes:
Schiff couldn’t let Nunes end this whole discussion:DONATE
