I guess since that first memo had all the drama of Grandma’s sewing circle, Nunes and his partisan warriors are hoping that hitting the public with a deluge of finger pointing will finally push everyone to the point of no return, accepting only Trump as sole truth and authority.
No, seriously. Trump’s little house elf, Nunes, is attempting to undercut every department that might otherwise hold Trump in check.
The House Intelligence chair and his team have told members and associates they’ve found other examples of politically motivated “wrongdoing” across various agencies, including the FBI, the broader Justice Department, and the State Department.
Currently, the plan is for another 5 memos, so we’re in for a long and numbing process of finger pointing, as they hope at least one of them will be the magic ticket to ending the Russia probe.
A Republican member briefed on Nunes’ investigations told me: “There are several areas of concern where federal agencies used government resources to try to create a narrative and influence the election. Some have suggested coordination with Hillary Clinton operatives, [Sidney] Blumenthal and [Cody] Shearer, to back up the false narrative.”
I’m told the Nunes team has discussed producing additional reports or disclosures that don’t require declassification.
So just the stuff they make up?
Appearing with Fox News’ Bret Baier, Nunes commented on the upcoming memos:
“Yeah, so this completes just the FISA abuse portion of our investigation,” Nunes replied. “We are in the middle of what I call phase two of our investigation, which involves other departments, specifically the State Department and some of the involvement that they had in this.”
There’s talk of a second Trump-Russia dossier, put together by Shearer. The FBI reportedly viewed that dossier, as well.
Expect to hear more about Shearer and Blumenthal in those upcoming memos.
