Democrats Set To Obliterate Devin Nunes' FBI Secret Society Conspiracy Memo

The letter, first reported by ABC News, was posted in full by CNN.
This week, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd - a political appointee - sent off a letter to the conspiracy-addicted Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Callif.
The letter also stresses that the DOJ understands why members of the House Intelligence Committee are attempting to release the Nunes memo, noting, "The rule of law depends on the confidence of the American people that our prosecutors and investigators apply the law fairly and without bias or regard for political influence". In 2004, when then-president George W. Bush's White House attempted to re-authorize warrantless wiretapping over the objection of the Justice Department, Wray, then the head of its criminal division, was ready to resign-alongside then-deputy attorney general Comey.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the panel's top Democrat, said Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the committee chairman, "produced a very distorted memo" and had the panel vote to allow all House members to read the confidential memo to create "bias" about the Russian Federation probe.

Jerry Nadler, D-NY, told CNN on Thursday why he thinks the Republican memo should not be released. Almost 200 Republican House members have read the Nunes memo in a secure location in the Capitol, but only a dozen Democrats have done so.
A spokesman for Nunes, Jack Langer, said: "Agencies that are under investigation by congressional committees don't typically get access to the committees' investigative documents about them, and it's no surprise these agencies don't want the abuses we've found to be made public".
"Seeking Committee approval of public release would require HPSCI committee members to vote on a staff-drafted memorandum that purports to be based on classified source materials that neither you nor majority have seen", Boyd's letter said. "Some of those things you won't see".
As the House of Representatives prepared to release a controversial intelligence summary memo to the public, possibly approving it for release on Monday, a Wall Street Journal columnist said the stakes are high for Democrats, not Republicans.
River Seine continues to rise due to record rainfall
However, the highest rise in water level of Seine was in 1910, when the numbers were reported to be as high as 28 feet. In the suburb of Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, flooding forced some residents into boats to move along the roads.
Specifically, the memo purportedly relates to DOJ surveillance activities in the Russian Federation investigation.
Schiff's announcement comes as Republican leaders in both the House and Senate argue with the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation over publicizing information related to the dossier written by a British ex-spy, Christopher Steele. In other words, the chairman of the Intelligence Committee is seeking to compromise America's national security. The Justice Department, on the other hand, says that to make it public without its review and possible redactions would be "extraordinarily reckless".
But committee Democrats have suggested that countering the GOP memo is hard because detailing the other intelligence that the FISA warrant application is based on, and that the memo reportedly omits, would reveal sources and methods. It comes from Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), who you might recall was forced to recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe after he came under Ethics Committee scrutiny for potentially revealing classified information as part of his comical attempts to protect the Trump administration from the investigation he was supposedly overseeing.
Russians, Republican congressmen and conservative media personalities like Sean Hannity aren't the only ones who have called for the document's release.
