Trump-hating California Congressman Adam Schiff has literally been seeing Russians in his sleep for quite some time now, but this one takes the cake, even for him.
Get a load of why the good congressman doesn’t think America deserves to take a peek at the heretofore unreleased Nunes memo that, according to plenty of others who have seen it, could blow the Russia investigation wide open in a whole other direction.
“Let me ask you about the Russia investigation because I can’t have you here and not,” said CNN Newsroom’s Ana Cabrera. “Can you tell us about this memo? What exactly is it?”
“It is essentially a set of talking points that the Republican Intel staff drafted based on the highly classified materials which most of the Republican members were forced to acknowledge they’ve not even read,” responded Schiff.
Riiight – the Republicans just made it up. Because Russian bots, or something.
No, seriously, he really said that. Russian bots…
“So they don’t know how distorted these talking points are. But as part of the narrative they want to push out. Interestingly enough, they’ve made common cause, once again, with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It’s in a redux of the campaign. We have Julian Assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hashtag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what’s driving this. And that is —”
When they finally put Schiff in the looney bin, the above paragraph sounds like something he’ll be muttering as he wanders the halls in his straight jacket.
So, why not allow the rest of America to look at it? To Cabrera’s credit, at least she asked him the question.
“Well, because the American people unfortunately don’t have the underlying materials and therefore they can’t see how distorted and misleading this document is,” said Schiff. “The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a fulsome attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller, to circle the wagons for the White House. And that’s a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the Bureau, but more than that, it’s a disservice to the country.”
Nothing to see here, folks. That’s what Schiff and the Dems desperately want America to believe. But Congressman Matt Gaetz begs to differ, and explained his view to Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday’s Justice with Jeanine.
“There is talk, a report that there is now a report that will show us and shock us about the abuses. Can you tell us about that report?” ask Pirro.
“There are four pages of a memorandum prepared by the intelligence committee that will shock the conscience of this country when it comes to the horrific abuses from the last administration and that I believe continue to pose a threat to the Donald Trump presidency,” said Gaetz. “It is so important that we are fighting to get this memo released to the American people. I don’t think the right answer is to just allow Congress to be shocked and horrified.”
Gaetz explained that the memo could be released anytime Nunes schedules and vote and President Trump doesn’t overrule it.
And apparently, all the usual suspects are involved.
“I can’t go into the specific names until we share the information,” said Gaetz, “but I can say this, names are named.”
“I think we’ll be shocked not only at the way information was collected, but at the way it was authenticated,” said Gaetz. “Heads are going to roll. I believe crimes were committed.”
Yep, no wonder Schiff doesn’t want America to see that thing.
