The Nunes memo was dishonest. And if it is allowed to stand, we risk significant collateral damage to essential elements of our democracy.
The Nunes memo’s fundamental claim was that the FBI misled the court about Christopher Steele, the former British agent who was a source of information in the FISA applications on Carter Page. It accused the Bureau of failing to “disclose or reference the role of the [Democratic National Committee], Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding” Steele’s research. The government, it argued, portrayed Steele as unbiased, when in fact “the political origins of the Steele dossier were then known to senior DOJ and FBI officials.” This was strong stuff, certainly troubling if true.
Today we know that it was not true. Almost four weeks ago, based on my experience with the FISA program and those who administer it, I expressed confidence that the government “
He’s not going to do anything because in the end Kris doesn’t believe there was anything wrong with what went on at the FBI,” said a former law enforcement official. “His selection by the FISC is how bureaucrats protect themselves and could care less about the American people or the Constitution.”

If I had my say SCOTUS judges would walk into 3 Random Court rooms. Then pick the attorney that best represented their client .
After which they could put them in front of a judicial panel then questioned her to see who should be appointed on any investigation .
Believe it or not some lawyer still worry about reputations.
In my opinion that would be the best chance both sides got at a even shake .

THIS is why I despise modern politicians and government workers. Yes, it matters, the US is not, has never been and will never be a democracy. They're hell-bent on making people believe our country's issues can and should be simple majority rules.
Some of you probably don't care or don't think it matters but it does.
So this report just means there will be more of the same BS. How does this happen? They know everyone is watching, are they that arrogant that they don't believe it will catch up with them at some point?
