Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Adam Schiff.....bring it on.
Why would this memo make these congresspersons go apesh*t crazy? What are they hiding, too?
The DNC and Dem leaders, and Big Dem Donors are one big cesspool of dark corruption. Let's get this onion peeled!

Hilarious the same people who call Trump Hitler are perfectly fine with the FBI and DoJ using nazi techniques to help another candidate to win the election.
In terms of the memo itself, the arguments leveled against it in recent days have been exposed as hollow and disingenuous. No serious person who has ever worked in intelligence could make a case — now that the memo is public — that its release jeopardizes sources and methods, or places our national security at risk or any individual in danger.
The American people should question those — including elected Democrats and senior DOJ and FBI officials — who were making such a spurious public case about the need for secrecy.
White House employees are supposed to be among the most thoroughly screened in Washington.
The names of prospective staff members are first forwarded to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for what is known as a ''special inquiry.'' F.B.I. agents at offices throughout the United States are made available to conduct a background check.
''We do a very, very thorough investigation,'' said Milt Ahlerich, a spokesman.
Bureau agents are expected to talk with friends, relatives and neighbors of the prospective employee. Work histories are reviewed, and references are checked. Agents look for arrest records and follow up on unflattering rumors.
''We'll go as far as nececessary to resolve any derogatory information,'' Mr. Ahlerich said. The F.B.I. investigation is performed for all prospective employees, from maids to the most senior Presidential aides. It can take months, even for officials who have had background checks before.
A former Pentagon official recalled recently that he was subjected to an extensive background while working for the Defense Department. After he left to become a national security consultant for the White House, a new background investigation was requested, he said, and it lasted nearly nine months.
