Attorney General Jeff Sessions is either in collusion with Hillary and her crooked pawns at the FBI or he’s a moron of the highest order. Apparently, the former senator from Alabama is making a last-ditch effort to prevent the release of the “Nunes Memo.” That document, which has been the subject the of a media firestorm, details alleged surveillance abuses involving the Steele dossier under the Obama administration.
In a letter sent Wednesday to California Representative Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), the Justice Department argued that it would be “extraordinarily reckless” for the committee to publicly release the memo.
The Sessions’ DOJ argued that the “unprecedented” release of such a memo could have national security consequences and damage future investigations.
Mr. Nunes and South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy assembled the controversial memo from classified documents provided by the Justice Department and FBI.
Check it out, per Daily Caller:
Republicans on the Intelligence Committee voted unanimously last week to allow other members of Congress to view the classified memo. Shortly after, a group of Republican lawmakers who viewed the document put out statements calling it “alarming” and “disturbing.”
On Friday, 65 Republicans sent a letter to Nunes asking him to make the memo public. That campaign intensified over the weekend, and the White House signaled that it would have no objection to its disclosure.
“Agencies that are under investigation by congressional committees don’t typically get access to the committees’ investigative documents about them, and it’s no surprise these agencies don’t want the abuses we’ve found to be made public,” Jack Langer said in a statement.
So the question remains: why, exactly, is Attorney General Jeff Sessions so nervous about releasing the memo? He either thinks that some line of evidence in the memo might reflect poorly upon him and his office, or he’s worried about exposing someone else.
At any rate, this entire debacle has played out in the public sphere, for better or for worse. All these abuses and criminal acts need to be brought out into the light and dealt with, once and for all… This is American, not 1950s Soviet Russia…
If Mr. Sessions has nothing to hide, then well, he should be fine with the release of the memo.
