Former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara slammed House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez (R-TX) in a single tweet that captured the absurdity of the political theater surrounding the Nunes controversial memo.
It started when Gonzalez, who was AG under George W. Bush, slammed the Nunes memo on the eve of its release.
“I have no confidence whatsoever in what’s going to come out of the House,” Gonzalez told Time magazine.
“Nunes seems to be part of the Trump team,” Gonzalez continued.
In response, Bharara slammed both Republicans.
“I mean come on when your memo is crapped on by Alberto “torture memo” Gonzales, you’re up sh*thole creek I think, Devin Nunes,” Bharara posted.
Bharara served as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 2009 to 2017.
