Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele on Friday knocked House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) over the publication of a controversial memo alleging surveillance abuse by the FBI.

“The folks at @TheOnion after reading the #NunesMemo have sent a cease and desist order to the House Intelligence Committee for stealing their material,” Steele quipped.

The Onion, “American’s Finest News Source,” had in fact published a rather poignant article about the memo’s publication, posting a simple photo of Nunes along with the headline, “Breaking: Nunes Memo Exposes Deep Bias, Corruption In Devin Nunes.”

Another Onion story from today’s developments features a picture of the House Intelligence Committee chairman with the caption, “Nunes: ‘The American People Have A Right To Know The Contextless, Selectively-Edited Truth’.”
