Chuck Schumer calls for Nunes to be removed as House Intel Chair ahead of FISA memo dropping

The Nunes memo that’s (hopefully) about to turn the Deep State on its head has Democrats all in a tizzy.

On the one hand, they claim it’s much ado about nothing, absurd Republican fabrications meant to discredit Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion. On the other, the memo’s release will – although nothing is there, mind you – end Democracy as we know it, or something.

Either way, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is really, really angry at Devin Nunes.

So much so that the Senate Minority Leader is calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to remove the California congressman as House Intelligence Committee chairman for deciding to let America read his memo and decide for themselves as to the merits of its contents.

“The decision of Chairman Nunes and House Republicans to release a bogus memo has taken the GOP’s cover-up campaign to a new, completely unacceptable extreme,” Schumer wrote in a letter to Ryan. “Both the DOJ and FBI oppose releasing the Nunes memo. As the Department of Justice warned, the public release of the memo would be an ‘unprecedented action’ and ‘extraordinarily reckless.’ The FBI also expressed that the agency has ‘grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.'”

Schumer also added that Nunes’ “deliberate actions make him unfit to serve as Chairman, and he must be removed immediately from this position.”

Shockingly, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi thinks the same thing, and expressed her sentiments via letter on Thursday as Democrats panicked.

“It is long overdue that you, as Speaker, put an end to this charade and hold Congressman Nunes and all Congressional Republicans accountable to the oath that they have to support and defend the Constitution, and protect the American people,” Pelosi wrote.
