Republicans full steam ahead on surveillance memo release despite DOJ rebuke

January 25, 2018


Republicans appear to be proceeding with the release of a much-hyped memo that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuse — despite Justice Department officials describing such a move as “extraordinarily reckless.”

Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote Wednesday to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., urging him not to release the memo.

“We believe it would be extraordinarily reckless for the Committee to disclose such information publicly without giving the Department and the FBI the opportunity to review the memorandum and to advise the HPSCI of the risk of harm to national security and to ongoing investigations that could come from public release,” he said.

Boyd continued, “Though we are currently unaware of any wrongdoing relating to the FISA process, we agree that any abuse of that system cannot be tolerated.”

    The American people want to see the report—–its that plain and simple. We can make up our own mind of the guilty party.–and we are tired of being kept in the dark of all the wrong doings. After all it is our money that they have used irresponsibly. GET THIS STRAIGHT, THE CLINTON’S THE BUSHES AND OBAMA KEPT INFO FROM US FOR THEIR OWN DAMN REASON —–NONE OF IT WAS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.——ENOUGH.! STOP KEEPING US IN THE DARK.!!!!!!

      I agree with everything you just said, Barbara. We need to shake the trees until the guilty parties fall out. Then we need to strip them of their government credentials – the equivalent of tarring and feathering – and send them packing! We, the people, can’t control our government until we know the truth, the whole truth…well, you know the rest, so let’s do it. Rep. Nunes, Chairman of the House, Judiciary Committee is on the right track in wanting to make the 4-Page”Memo” available to the public. We need to support him and others who agree with his position.
