Ooo, look, so many Very Serious People using words like “treason”, this time against Republicans, most especially the Repubs who worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign! Could not be happening to a more deserving gang of revanchists and revenants…
Jeff Sessions on Nunes memo: "No department is perfect" https://t.co/yubwzI4D9j

Atty Gen Jeff Sessions went off script at human trafficking event this morn to praise Deputy Atty Gen Rod Rosenstein, a reported target of Nunes memo. Noting Rosenstein has 27 yrs at DOJ, Sessions said Rosenstein represents "the kind of quality & leadership that we want" in DOJ.

We know now the FBI was actively investigating both campaigns during the 2016 election but only chose to publicly announce (repeatedly!) their investigation of Clinton while keeping the Trump campaign investigation *completely* secret the entire time.

Doesn’t it strike you as a bit odd that no Repub has ever publicly questioned whether Russian help started long before May 2016, and whether their party’s nomination was captured by the Russians via Donald Trump?

Anybody heard from Rudy lately?
Rudy Giuliani warns his Republican Party to “be careful” going to war with the FBI https://t.co/Rv8P0VLTUm

sounds like Rudy Giuliani doesn’t want anyone looking too hard at how he mysteriously acquired advance knowledge of the October Hillary’s emails announcement https://t.co/gVKH8zNIJ8

And what of James Comey, (newly) Brave Truth-Tweeter?…
Imagine going back in time to Comey Letter Day in 2016 and reporting that the Republicans would eventually claim the FBI had been against them all along

One of the great ironies out of many in this current situation is that Comey no doubt released his letter because he assumed Clinton would win and he wanted to set a marker for FBI independence from the executive branch.

The thing about the new Woke James Comey character is that this whole predicament was substantially caused by his own poor judgment and mismanagement of the FBI.

Well his critical role electing Trump contributed to that predicament too. https://t.co/lsbGdk2Y6P
