The GOP Memo

The secret GOP memo is the story of the week and likely trigger for the market's sharp sell-off after an impressive run of gains. Another trigger for the sell-off: Interest rate angst trips up U.S. equity bull market.

Via WaPo: The Nunes memo is a document created by the staff of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) that alleges the FBI abused its surveillance authority, particularly when it sought a secret court order to monitor a former Trump campaign adviser. The FBI and the Justice Department had lobbied strenuously against its release. On Wednesday, the FBI had said it was “gravely concerned” that key facts were missing from the memo. President approves release of GOP memo criticizing FBI surveillance.

Trump ironically calls what's happening in this country a disgrace.

The Surprise in the Nunes Memo (The Atlantic)

A hotly anticipated memo from Representative Devin Nunes and Republican staff on the House Intelligence Committee offers a few new interesting pieces of information about the investigation into Russian interference in the election—though it leaves the most important questions unanswered.

Seriously? That’s all they’ve got?

The four-page memo that promised to reveal the biggest political scandal in a generation has finally been released. For all the pregame hype, the memo looks less like the next Watergate and more like the next “unmasking”-gate, the 2017 pseudo-scandal that alleged — wrongly — that Obama administration officials had mishandled classified information. That dust-up was orchestrated, coincidentally, by Representative Devin Nunes, the California Republican who heads the House Intelligence Committee and whose staff prepared the document released on Friday.

  1. This so called bombshell memo is nothing but a bunch of miscellaneous ramblings and opinions from partisan politicians looking to please the boss. Whoop-dee-do. You would think they have more important things to pay attention to —-like work, and doing their job.
