WASHINGTON—Stressing that such an action would be highly reckless, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned Thursday that releasing the “Nunes Memo” could potentially undermine faith in the massive, unaccountable government secret agencies of the United States. “Making this memo public will almost certainly impede our ability to conduct clandestine activities operating outside any legal or judicial system on an international scale,” said Wray, noting that it was essential that mutual trust exist between the American people and the vast, mysterious cabal given free rein to use any tactics necessary to conduct surveillance on U.S. citizens or subvert religious and political groups

What bloody faith!

No-one has any faith in the secret agencies.

What happened to the Bill of Rights. Where have all of the rights of the citizens gone!

Why is this in the jokes forum ... although ...

Lol, it is from The Onion. That is cute and quite smart. Well done, Onion.

Can’t wait to read it!!!

It just sucks it couldn’t be from a less credible source..

It is from a trump lapdog , who has already been removed from 2 Intelligence committees over his willingness to lie for the trump administration.

A lapdog who doesn’t have access to either the FISA warrant not any classified information.

Most of us already have "no faith" in unaccountable bureaucracies who even have the balls to delete evidence when subpoenaed and refuse to testify to even congress (IRS proved that).

I would love to see it easier for these clowns to get fired and lose their pensions if they are guilty of deleting evidence and stonewalling.

Irony does make for good humor, which begs the question can the truth be funny?

I think Bill Hicks, George Carlin and Dave Chapelle (in no particular order except the order I heard them in) would say yes. Hell yes! Upside down, back to front, Chinese Braille Bible with half the pages missing funny. Painfully funny and true too.

The next question. Was the Onion using the truth to be funny?

Do you understand what a satirical site does?

Satire is supposed to teach ... that is its purpose.

So you think it was based on the truth also? Good. I thought it was just me.

My thoughts as well...


"So the Onion... a Satire site... is using truth for a change and it's still funny as hell! It's funny because the truth and the satire are the same". lol
