Trump ally Devin Nunes won’t even release his secret anti-FBI memo to the Senate intel committee

Published

on

House Republicans are now stonewalling the Senate Intelligence Committee, along with the FBI and Justice Department, and refusing to provide a copy of the memo GOP House Intelligence Committee members say implicates the DOJ in surveillance abuse in the Russia investigation.

As CNN reports, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) has not been provided a copy of the four-page memo drafted by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), despite having asked for the document.

The Nunes Memo is the latest in a long list of conservative rallying cries forged around supposed evidence of alleged misconduct on behalf of former President Barack Obama’s Justice Department. Similar claims—including that the Obama administration improperly “unmasked” members of Donald Trump’s transition team, and the they refused to properly investigate the “Uranium One” scandal—were previously hyped by House conservatives (led by Nunes) to discredit the ongoing Russia investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump is reportedly mulling over the release of the memo, but thus far Nunes has refused to provide a copy to the DOJ, FBI or Senate.

Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) told CNN “none of the senators have access to it.”

Burr has taken on Nunes before regarding his activities on the Russia investigation. Last July, he threw cold on Nunes’ ongoing charge of impropriety on the part of the Obama administration, telling CNN, “the unmasking thing was all created by Devin Nunes.”

Crises have a way of sorting the good presidents from the bad.

Historians consistently rank Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt among the top three presidents for their handling of the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II.

By contrast, the string of catastrophes that trailed George W. Bush, from Iraq to Hurricane Katrina to his obliviousness to warning signs in the housing market before the 2008 crash guarantee that he will have a permanent place in the bottom tier of presidents.

Texas Supreme Court rejects GOP’s appeal to hold in-person convention this week in Houston

Published

on

The Texas Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal by the Republican Party of Texas seeking to host its in-person convention this week in Houston. Justices also denied a similar petition spearheaded by other party officials and Houston activist Steve Hotze.

Monday's news likely kills the party's chances of holding its in-person gathering as planned, which was set to begin July 16 at Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center. As of Saturday, the State Republican Executive Committee, considered the party's governing board, had reaffirmed the party's commitment to proceeding with the event, which was expected to draw roughly 6,000 people. Party officials had argued that its gathering was protected under both the Texas and U.S. Constitutions and should be allowed to continue as planned.
