House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes appeared before the annual CPAC gathering in DC to share with the conservative crowd some inside baseball perspective on his committee’s multiple investigations.
And it just so happens that serial lefty Dem.
Rep. Adam Schiff’s ‘Demo Memo’ was released a day beforehand, which made for some great punchlines.
According to Nunes, the memo essentially engages in ad hominem against him and other members of the committee and then attempts to explain why a FISA warrant for political purposes is totally okay.
The biggest problem is that the memo is so heavily redacted it’s almost unreadable.
That might be why Trump called it a ‘bust’.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) finally released the Democratic rebuttal to the GOP FISA memo moments before HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes took the stage at CPAC late Saturday afternoon.
Also known as “the Schiff memo,” the rebuttal claims that officials at the FBI and Justice Department “did not abuse the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign.”
The Democratic memo was delayed after it was voted out of committee earlier this month because “the Justice Department and FBI claimed the initial draft would reveal information about sources and methods, ongoing investigations, and other sensitive information.”
It took Schiff and Co. over two weeks to make the necessary redactions.
CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp asked Nunes what he could tell the CPAC audience about the memo.
Nunes joked that it was just posted, but the website had probably crashed already due to “Russian bots.”
