Followers of American politic will know that the just released 'Nune Memo' i a summary of the skulduggery carried out by the FBI and DOJ prior to, during and after the American presidential election.

Here it is in full and unabridged:-



Nunes Memo by CNBC.com on Scribd




One has to wonder just what would these scoundrels have been up to had Hillary been elected?

Rewarded with high office in return for loyalty to Her Highness, no doubt.

This is just the start of the avalanche.

It will be like a tsunami, Judicial watch is now suing for total unmasking of all FBI and DOJ officials involved in the targeting of the Trump campaign. There will be indictments. This is a disaster for the Democraps in the midterms. The popcorn tastes good.

Adolf - apologies for tinkering with your post, but the Scribd link was only showing the first page of the doc so I've added the rest.

ROFL. What a joke. Trump should have kept it secret. Although I see you have the full-throated support of a Russian bot, right Al?

Do you think Don jr is going to have to get pardoned by daddy?

Noel said...

Top Secret/NOFON. What were they smoking when they gave it that classification?

Many thanks Milt. Much appreciated.

It’s clear Adolt hasn’t read the thing. It’s a joke, which in no way implicates anyone in wrongdoing, despite its feeble attempts to do so. Page, who is a bit dim, compromised himself to the extent that surveillance of him was warranted and appropriately authorised.

Remember all this was kept secret from the US public in the lead up to the election, unlike the Clinton email beat up. This obviously raises questions about the Republican bias at the FBI, but that’s not what Nunes is hysterically trying to assert, given his nose is all the way up Trump’s backside. The whole thing would be hilarious if the end result hadn’t been the con job foisted on the US electorate, which was just sufficient to see Trump “elected” President.

I'm very very surprised anyone treats the Memo as anything other than toilet paper. It is politically partisan, and treating it as gospel truth shows people up as sheep following shepherds, devoid of original thought.

How can anyone who values the constitutional protections in the USA possibly condone this political attack on the FBI. When Helen Clark treated Peter Doone in a similar manner the political Right were apoplectic.

Nothing in the Memo is tested. It's typical Trump nonsense, "I'll say whatever I want and whatever I say is the truth"!

This was released a few days after his delusional SoU address which was riddled with lies and inaccuracies. It comes soon after his claim that airplane accident deaths are reduced because of *his* new rules. That was a crock of shit too.

I don't believe a thing he says. I certainly dn't give a memo written by politicians any weight at all. What should happen is what Alan Dershowitz recommend here: http://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/372095-alan-dershowitz-on-the-nunes-memo-republican-truth-and-democratic-truth.

Until there is an open investigation into the FSIA application, and the role of the Steele Dossier, political burps should be discarded. I'm not paying any attention to them, particularly from the Trump team, which patently has bias because of the Mueller investigation.

Nick.

I never thought I would see you shooting the messenger and ignoring the message.

Hell man, this was just the entree. Wait til you get the main course from the Inspector general in a few days.

From the Wall street Journal editorial:-

"...The memo adds that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told the committee in December 2017 that “no surveillance warrant would have been sought” without the dossier...."

Two Dems tried to deny McCabe made such a statement nut unfortunately his evidence was recorded.

Snowflake said...

Sorry, what’s the message? That Nunes is a Trump toadie who got his staff to write a bunch of misleading spin and then classified it so no one could read it and then said it was so shocking it was worse than Watergate, then got forced to release it and is now terribly embarrassed? Hilarious.

Nick K said...

I never thought I would see you shooting the messenger and ignoring the message.

Yeah, apologies if it came across that way.

The Memo is not a message. It is written by Republicans for the explicit reason to undermine Mueller and the investigation! For that reason, it can't possibly be "evidence" of anything.

Nick K said...

I have just realised my comment above is contradictory. Of course the Memo is a message. It says "Fuck off Mueller. Leave us alone or we'll destroy you and the FBI".

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Funny that. Most of the conservative commentary from the US I've seen so far suggests it will have little effect on Mueller's circus.

I'm yet to hear from you which particular assertions you regard as unreliable.

"But note that Democrats aren’t challenging the core facts that the FBI used the dossier to gain a FISA order or the bureau’s lack of disclosure to the FISA judges."

Nick K said...

The entire Memo is unreliable for the very reason is asserts as proof that the FISA application was legally deficient and should never have been issued, nor renewed.

This is not a legal opinion. Nor is it a legal ruling. It's an assertion of facts stated as the truth by people who have a vested interest in the outcome!

Nick K said...

Deputy Director McCabe testified before the Committee in December 2017 that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISC without the Steele dossier information,” the memo claims, referring to the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Asked if that was a true representation, a source familiar with McCabe’s testimony responded: “100% not.”

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

"a source"?

Is that the best you can do?

Are you going to put that up against a recording and transcript of his evidence?

Nick K said...

You've got to produce those first.

Nick K said...

Several other claims, such as that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told congressional investigators that the warrant would not have been approved without the Steele dossier, also can’t be validated because they refer to closed interviews whose transcripts haven’t been made public.

The House Intelligence Committee approved the release of the Republican memo, but it blocked the release of the Democrat’s response, which was written by people with access to the underlying warrants and testimony and reportedly would debunk some of the claims in the Republican memo.


No one should take the memo seriously.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Nick.

The Dems' 'memo' was not blocked. It was required to undergo the same process as the Nunes 'memo' prior to release. Once that process is complete you can expect to see it.

People who were present at those interview have attested to the fact that McCabe gave such evidence.

You are struggling.

Nick K said...

Yes. I full expect the Dems response to be released.

In about 50 years' time.

People who were present at those interview have attested to the fact that McCabe gave such evidence.

Do you mean Republican apparatchiks?

People who were in the Committee have also attested to the fact that he didn't say that!

I'm sure you can see now that the Memo is not proof of anything. Dozens of news sites I have read today, including Real Clear Politics mention both the glaring omission of facts, and the embellishment of other facts, in the Memo which impacts on its accuracy.

Snowflake said...

In any case it doesn’t matter a jot if the FBI used material in the Steele dossier to get the FISA warrant as it’s mostly reliable information. The FBI and courts rely on evidence from motivated informants all the time, it doesn’t mean the information is inaccurate and in this case most of it is bang on. Not Steele’s fault Trump is compromised with the Russians. It’s Trump’s. Anyway, it was GOP operatives who commissioned the Steele dossier, not the Dems, and the FBI may not have even been aware the Dems had picked up the funding of the work. All in all this is pretty terrible for Nunes.

Nick K said...

It wasn't GOP operatives who commissioned Steele that led to the FISA application. They were involved earlier and the DNC jumped in at the end using Steele.

Psycho Milt said...

To be fair, there certainly is evidence of FBI bias - ie, the fact that Comey released a statement about re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails shortly before the election, something bound to damage her election chances, while remaining silent about the fact the FBI was investigating Trump campaign staff re collusion with the Russian government. Prima facie evidence of bias in favour of the Republican candidate I would have thought - if I gave a shit about US politics, that is.

Here's the best summary of the whole thing.

""Dem. Party hired the Perkins law firm. The Perkins law firm hired Fusion GPS. Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele...& then they hired Nelly Ohr, the wife of Bruce Ohr, to get the fake dossier from a political environment into the bloodstream of the intel. community""

Meanwhile I'm keeping my powder dry until the Inspector General's report is issued.

Snowflake said...

Sure you are buddy, sure you are. Sounds like you know, without having even read it that the thing is a dud. Not the first time you’ve backed one though is it?

Anonymous said...

Here's the best summary of the whole thing'

"Bullshit, lies, obfuscation, and trump fellating".

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

You are struggling still.

From today's Wall Street Journal:-

"WASHINGTON—The House Intelligence Committee on Monday voted unanimously to release a classified Democratic memo that defends the federal investigation into a Trump campaign associate, a move that gives the White House five days to allow or reject its disclosure."

Here's one to get Adolf to choke on his pureed dinner.

My sincere thanks.

Your referred encyclopedic piece of gossip does an excellent job of reaffirming the systemic putrefaction within the FBI.

Well done, old chap.

I'll diarise it.

That was a very short fifty years.
