Pelosi is in full damage control amid the memo being released to the public that details how former President Barack Obama’s FBI and Justice Department abuse their powers to spy on President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and trigger the Russia investigation.

“From the start, Congressman Nunes has disgraced the House Intelligence Committee,” Pelosi wrote. “Since pledging to recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation, Congressman Nunes has abused his position to launch a highly unethical and dangerous cover-up campaign for the White House.”
Following her lead was left-wing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who said it is “clear that Chairman Nunes will seemingly stop at nothing to undermine the rule of law and interfere with the Russia probe.”
“He’s been willing to carry the White House’s water, attack our law enforcement and intelligence officials, and now to mislead his House colleagues,” Schumer said. “If Speaker Ryan cares about the integrity of the House or the rule of law, he will put an end to this charade once and for all.”
Chuck and Nancy were hyperventilating over how detrimental the FISA memo will be to the Democratic Party, but also how Obama’s administration acted corruptly to launch the Russia investigation into Trump on rotten, false, and misleading pretenses.
The Democrats wanted Nunes removed because they are apparently aware the memo reveals how top Obama officials used the discredited dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele for Fusion GPS to get a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to launch a surveillance campaign against Trump’s 2016 campaign.
The corrupt dossier, which was given upwards of $10 million from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee, was used as a major aspect of getting the warrant and launching the Russia probe.
Pelosi should be freaking out about how Democrats and Obama are corrupt crooks, not over Republicans and Nunes wanting the American people to see the truth.
The fact that Chuck and Nancy want Nunes removed literally tells you everything you need to know. Imagine what he might release next.
