What kept ya?

In other words, Shift is pissed that his name was added?

If this idiot is not shamed out of public service or arrested for obstruction, I'll eat Maxine's hair, while she's in the shower!

Hopefully she won't be wearing it so I don't go blind or turn to stone or both.

I have to disagree. It's not the Democrats doing the same thing, the Democrats weren't off doing their own thing and producing a one-sided memo. They were taking part in the bipartisan investigation that the committee had opened. They weren't working on a memo.

Without the Nunes memo, there'd be no minority memo — one is a response to the other. This isn't supposed to happen because the committee is traditionally bipartisan and with good reason. They release reports from the committee that are the result of input from the whole committee. Nunes essentially abused his role as Chairman and the GOP's majority to pull a fast one. If that doesn't stink of partisan hitjob, I don't know what does.

At this point, the President could still release what he has (because he can do what he wants) but I think there's probably a good argument to be made that if there are indeed material differences between what was voted on and what was sent to the White House, the HPSCI cannot release the memo by citing a non-objection from the White House.



Seriously?

They been working on 1003 narratives for the past 2 yrs.

Who in their right mind can believe anything coming out of their mouths?!

Too F'n bad, sucks to be him even on his good day.

Bipartisan my ass.

We saw that "bipartisan" at the SOTU.

Why does exposing corruption in the FBI and DOJ terrify so many people?


The vast majority of people terrified, are Democrats. They see how their boy Mueller has moved from Russia to Trump. THEY KNOW that exposing DOJ/FBI corruption will lead to OBAMA.


All roads lead to Rome.


And all roads are being clogged by panicy Democrats as this week ends, and so do many of their careers.

Officially, here's why the MEMO has changed.

What's ironic is that the Democrats had a hand in some of the alternations. Maybe Schiff forgot? Nope! He's is self-preservation mode now.

Thanks for this posting. I saw this and was about to post it myself.

This thoroughly debunks this thread, good find.

This is a perfect opportunity to see how sensationalist news can be and written with an agenda, aims to change ones perspective through a potential false premise.

Here is what the link says:

Here is the House Intel spokesman's statement on latest Schiff charges. He says edits were minor and included grammatical fixes and tweaks *suggested by the FBI and committee Democrats.*


Schiff is in full-blown panic right now. He was never credible to begin with (remember, everybody except him denies that Trump called Haiti a #hole, and Trump said he's going to start recording his meetings precisely because of guys like Schiff), but now it's obvious he's just trying to throw shade around and stall any way he can.

The memo must be accurate, at least mostly so, because I can't imagine how a collection of political talking points would lead to such desperation.

Five professional members of the FBI were at the White House to meet with the Chief of Staff John Kelly to got through that.

"To got through that? " such professional editing makes me really want more.

Why would any changes need to be made after the document was voted on? Why wasn't the original submitted to the Whitehouse?

Because the fbi requested it and it was mostly grammatical.


Tick tock silly...

Dem world is about to be non existent... sure you don’t want that crow yet? Your plate is sure piling up.

It doesn't pass the smell test. There's no reason for Nunes to make significant changes now when we all know that the GOP majority on the Intel Committee almost certainty would have given a green light to it the first time around. Nunes story...that these were minor changes requested by the FBI and the Dems...rings true.

Schiffty is just running interference and attempting to delay in hopes that the GOP will lose control over the narrative on this.

So.....just send the unedited memo on over to the White House for review and approval for release.

The games that are being played with the people are ridiculous.

You should probably read the provided source.


"In its increasingly strange attempt to thwart publication of the memo, the Committee Minority is now complaining about minor edits to the memo, including grammatical fixes and two edits requested by the FBI and by the Minority themselves," Langer said.


Satisfied?

we need to legalize dueling again that would bring back some civility and honor to congress.It would put an end to all the lies,petty name calling and false accusations if congress had to back up their words with their lives. pistols at 30 paces.

If the FBI has nothing to hide, then why are they hiding things?

I saw something on Gateway Pundit that said one change was requested by the FBI due to "sources & methods" concerns, and there was another "two word" change requested, but other than that it was just minor edits.

According to Fox news sources are saying president Trump is expected to declassify the memo with FBI edits.

Hmmm

You guys are deluded.
Honestly, what do you think happens next when Nunes (mini-trump) finds out what this button does?

The last time he ended up in a weak ethics investigation and having to pretend to step back from his committee.

This time his bright idea comes with a much louder boom.

Lie about another politician...sure...everyday in DC.

Lie about the FBI in hopes of scuttling an investigation?

Good luck to Nunes and his comrades.

Release the memo!!

80% of the country already knows it is bunk, the remaining 20% Trump worshippers will cheer and Nunes will have to explain his lies when the FBI begins testifying as to what the actual intelligence Nunes reviewed said.

I think Nunes political career is over with this release.

It is why he is already trying to water it down with edits.

This will be entertaining.

You mean the edits that weren't approved for release by congress?

Legally how does that work? Releasing a different document than the one congress approved for release?

Nunes edited the memo. Not FBI or anyone else.

He can claim he did it to make them happy, but not knowing the original memo we will never know.

Nunes has a gift for cluster-effing everything he touchs.

No.

Nunes's behavior has been questionable all along. When the administration called on him in March, he jumped to their aid and in coordination with the administration, tried unsuccessfully to launch the "unmasking" narrative. He tried to cover up the coordination with the White House and the White House flat out lied about it.

He used the mess he made as an excuse to cancel scheduled testimonies to the committee.

When all that blew up and watchdog groups filed ethics complaints about his press conferences, what did he do? He fake-recused himself from the investigation and months later asserted that no, he'd actually not recused himself and had been overseeing it from the shadows for months.

He did that because the HEC "cleared him" though as it turns out, they apparently never got their hands on the highly classified material he based his "unmasking" stunt on.

Cherry-picked details of the Glenn Simpson testimony to the HPSCI were released by the GOP to right-wing media. It would appear that details of testimonies were improperly shared between Nunes and Grassley. By December he was unilaterally firing off subpoenas for Fusion GPS bank records, etc.

Then in mid-January, it was revealed that he'd gone off on his own to conduct another investigation without any consultation with the minority and produced his memo, citing highly classified documents he himself hadn't seen. He then pushed to have his dodgy memo released. And of course, when asked by a committee member if he coordinated with the WH for the memo, he flat refused to answer the question. Wonder why?

When the minority put together a memo in response to what they (and now the FBI) say are inaccuracies and glaring omissions in his memo, he opted of course to continue to push for the release of his memo ahead of the minority memo. Why? Because he needs his allegations to go public without anyone being able to refute them. Nobody can discuss what's in the minority memo which of course, like his memo, contains classified information. Since nobody can see the highly classified source material and couldn't talk about it even if they could, there's no way to ascertain the veracity of its claims. So there's basically his memo will be published far and wide and everyone's hands are tied to refute what it claims.

What has Nunes been doing for the last year? He's been ignoring investigation into Russian interference in the US presidential election and instead, Nunes, who it bears reminding was a Trump transition team member, has been working with the WH on a series of distractions behind the scenes.

He's a toady. A stooge. A shill. A water carrier. A partisan hack. I wouldn't trust anything he says.

This latest fiasco with the editing of the memo is either deliberately shady or stupidly sloppy and neither are good looks.

That is a good description of any politician.


You simply choose which politician you decide to believe.


Politicians are politicians. THEY all lie.
