(National Sentinel) Unhinged: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., got angry at CNN host Chris Cuomo Monday evening during a discussion about the House Intelligence Committee’s decision to release the sensitive “FISA Memo.”
The memo purports to detail abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by Obama-era officials in the FBI and Justice Department in order to obtain a warrant so they could spy on the Trump campaign.
Pelosi, during her interview, claimed that the memo is nothing more than a Republican fabrication of the truth, though it’s not clear she herself has read it.
“They have made up a memo that isn’t even true. And they’re lying to the American people,” Pelosi insisted to Cuomo, who responded, “What are you going to do about it?”
“The Republican Party has crossed over to cover up. They’re deadly afraid of the Russia investigation,” Pelosi replied.
Cuomo then pointed out that the head of the FBI, Christopher Wray, read the memo on Sunday, a day before FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — who some believe was involved in a plot to thwart President Donald J. Trump’s candidacy and presidency — either resigned or was fired by Wray.
“Wray, who was recently selected by President Trump, he got the memo. He could have come out and said, ‘This is reckless, don’t release it,'” said the host.
“With all due respect, you really don’t know what you’re talking about right now,” Pelosi chided Cuomo.
The Intelligence Committee voted last week to release the memo to the full House, allowing any member who wanted to go read it in a secure location after signing a non-disclosure form.
So far, at least 190 Republicans have read the memo, but only 10 Democrats have bothered to do so.
Trump, like many of his supporters, believe the memo not only proves he was right to claim that the Obama administration “wiretapped” him, but that it will also show that special counsel Robert Mueller’s entire investigation was established on false premises.
“The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as ‘shocking,’ ‘troubling’ and ‘alarming’ with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia,” Fox News reported. “Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump ‘dossier’ played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.”
