Why would you say that? I swear the only thing we know is that it's "shocking" according to every right wing flack in congress. I think I heard it's written by Nunes?

The R's had something that really hit the D's without any collateral damage, more would be leaked. Same holds true for the D's having something on the R's. JMO.

I could buy the argument that neither party wants a dirty laundry battle, but there are enough cowboys (or cowgirls) in both parties that I think this would be out.

Or it's a bunch of bullshit and releasing it would show it was a bunch of bullshit?

I don't mean to be disagreeable, but there so much stupid shit about how famaging it is, but no one has ANY information about what it's even supposed to say.

could be bs.. I'm sure Trump would hold that position if claims were directed at him. =)

I do think you are correct in wondering how damaging this all is... usually the damage is viewed through a bias. That said, there is enough smoke here that some type of fire must exist.

I personally want to know. We will have view the damage differently, but I think we have the right to know.

That's what I'm saying though ent. Is there really smoke there? You have a bunch of hacks saying "OOOOHHHH! I saw it and it's soooo badddd!" But beyond that? Not a goddamn thing.

Humans are self serving. That is why we have laws.... because we cannot govern ourselves. I have no doubt the gov't has taken liberties and both sides have allowed this to happen. So that could also be my own bias on this topic and why I think there is a fire.

seat.. if you do think it is all bluff, you should also want them to show their hand. At this point, the R's can't hold back without losing face. I know the Party First people won't care, but those of us who bounce will. jmo

Of course I want them to release it. I also want them to release the FISA warrant they were talking about last week. They didn't release that one either. They also didn't realize the Simpson testimony that they claimed was flaming. So the democrats had to do it. And guess what? It wasn't damning.

Is "famaging" the fake-news version of damaging? It should be.

The 'shocking memo' that will result in numerous resignations across the FBI, CIA, NSA, NASA, and the Elks Lodge, is a 4-page document exclusively written by Devin Nunes which details 'shocking' abuse.

One 30-second phone call from Trump and it could be public in 10 minutes. Any of the outraged Congressmen could legally read it from the floor of Congress with no consequences.

Why doesn't Trump take action, even ignoring the pleas from his own son? Why don't Congressman Jordan or Meadows storm down to the microphone and begin exposing the evidence that'll make Watergate seem like child's play?

Kapture has no good answer to those questions. Just the same, tired memes.

That is certainly what I believed to be the case, but I heard an R rep say that the proper procedure would be for there to be an Intel Com. meeting. If a majority of the Com. votes to release the memo, then the President has five days to sign his agreement. Something about having the two elected branches involved in the process.

As far as reading it from the floor, I've always heard that that would be doable.

Alternatively, one could give it to Diane Feinstein. That would get into the public sphere within hours.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the California AG coming out and saying that there will be potential jail time and heavy fines if a private citizen assists federal agents in the state (I'm assuming he just means ICE).

Who knows. Im pulling for him to read the entire thing during the State of the Union address. BTFO out the left and deep state infront of the entire world.

Not likely. It will be released. The dems can worry about whats in there a bit longer, totally fine. If its as bad as i think it will be, the Russian investigation is over, and the dems will have to stick to body shamming.
