Wave scandal after scandal in front of people's faces with enough twists and turns that'll make anyone dizzy and you're sure to make at least two opposing factions in the process. Divide and conquer, they're doing a great job with their psyop.

The fact that Trump's stool pigeon, Nunes, had this thing put together should be a red flag (no pun intended) for anyone with some critical thinking skills. (Yes, I realize that instantly rules out a large portion of his base.) The partisan stoogery is so obvious here. We're talking about the guy who's been trying to muddy the waters the whole time. Yes, I'm sure this will be a really unbiased, objective, and transparent document. No cherry-picking or misdirection whatsoever.
It would be nice if they would actually listen to the Justice Department's concerns, but that would be sensible, right?
They're just crafty enough to know that all the other points that would really paint a more complete picture won't be allowed to see the light of day--e.g., all the intel that our allies passed on to the CIA and FBI, why the FBI was watching Page to begin with (going back to 2013), the layers of evidence and corroboration required to meet the standards of the FISA court, etc.
No, what we're going to see is just another attempt to pimp the ludicrous notion that the FBI is somehow biased toward Trump and secretly under the control of a "liberal" deep state--an officially Republican-sanctioned softball for Reichfart news and their inbred fans.
The scariest part, though, is that the average Trump moonie won't even bother to read it. Heck, Trump himself probably won't read it. He'll rely on one of his sycophantic minions to summarize it over Big Macs and/or a round of golf.
They'll release the memo, and all the money-grubbing blowhards like Hannity and Limburger will use it to whip Trump's illiterate base into a frothing orange lather.
Sadly, some of them have seen enough to really know how serious this is. Some of them are aware of how close Mueller is to bringing down their Cheeto Messiah. Notions of honor and integrity aside, one has to wonder just how many of them were taking money from Russia right along with him....

A simultaneous release would be ideal, but realistically, I can understand why the GOP wouldn't want to do that and why they probably shouldn't. If they do, the only one that the average person will ever hear about is the Dems' memo, because that's all the MSM will cover.
If the allegations of corruption contained within the GOP memo are as bad as suggested, I think it would be a great disservice to the public to give the media and the Dems such an opportunity to bury it.
Given that, I'd prefer they wait a few weeks before releasing the Dems' memo. That would give the public a better chance to hear both sides of the story.

A SECOND Memo/Dossier from a Clinton supporter has mysteriously surfaced.
The second memo was written by Cody Shearer, a controversial political activist and former journalist who was close to the Clinton White House in the 1990s.
