I don’t even know how to describe what happened on Friday, when the White House released the Nunes Memo. We all knew Donald Bigly would release the memo – after all, his sh-thole staffers probably wrote the damn thing in the first place, and the histrionics about “release the memo” were just a huge dirty trick, a political feint in bad faith, a dry run for the larger war to come WHEN Donald Bigly tries to fire Robert Mueller.
The Nunes Memo basically throws glitter into everyone’s eyes and hopes that people will be temporarily blinded and just believe what the GOP says about the memo, rather than read what the memo actually says. The TL;DR version is the FBI investigated Carter Page for good reason. The FBI sought and received legal warrants to monitor his communications and his person. The GOP wants you to believe that this is all some gigantic conspiracy theory involving Christopher Steele – whose dossier is NOT discredited – the FBI, the DOJ and the Democrats. They want you to believe that career FBI agents who are registered Republicans are biased against Donald Trump because something something. It’s all pretty f–king dumb. What shocked me was that reporters actually called it what it was on-air and in print: a really dumb, manufactured political bulls–t scandal.
Now, is this whole Nunes Memo thing over? Of course not. I have a strong suspicion that this coming week is going to be a f–king doozy. So until the sh-thole hits the fan, please enjoy this sad story about the Stable Genius.
