This business about the possible attempts by the president, the White House and leading Republican members of Congress to purposefully mislead the American public in their crusade to ambush the Mueller investigation has reached a new level in the latest attempt by Rep. Nunes, chair of the House Foreign Intelligence Committee. Mr. Nunes and we shall soon see if we can include the president wants to reveal misleading, inaccurate and highly sensitive information in their attempt to damage the FBI and top officials of the U.S. Justice Department.
Not only do they insist on releasing it but they insist on doing so without any corroborated evidence to show that this memo is accurate and indeed the truth. Furthermore, they refuse to allow the democratic members of the committee to release their own memo proving the outright lies and misleading nature of the Nunes memo. We cannot stop there. All of the Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee are complicit in this collusion to destroy the very institutions that are there to uphold the laws of our great country.
Let us not forget our very own 21st Congressional District Representative Elise Stefanik is one of them. She is one of the sitting Republican members of this committee who voted to allow this charade to go on (if not possibly an illegal one at that). District 21 and the citizens of the North Country deserve better.
