House Minority Whip Nancy Pelosi tried to use the release of the House Intelligence Committee’s memo on FBI abuses for her usual over-the-top political theater.
Pelosi told anyone that would listen that the release of chairman Devin Nunes’ FBI memo may cause a “constitutional crisis.”
What does she have to say now? After Fox News star and former Congress’ Oversight and Government Reform committee chairman Jason Chaffetz was done with her and the rest of the Democratic leadership, she’s being
Chaffetz needed up 28 words to silence the fear mongering Democrats pushed in the mainstream media regarding the release of Nunes.
That’s because the House Intelligence Committee unanimously approved the release of the Democrats memo on Monday — a bipartisan move that has exposed just how biased liberal lawmakers have become.
“So Dems voted AYE to release their memo and NAY to the Republican memo. Republicans vote AYE to release both memos,” Chaffetz pointed out Monday night on Twitter. “Who was fair/balanced? #ReleaseTheMemo”

The Democratic memo has been sent to the White House for a legal and national security review.
“The White House has received a memorandum from the minority members of the House Select Permanent Committee on Intelligence,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said after the House intelligence committee’s vote.
She said the Trump administration “will follow the same process and procedure” it did with the Republican document, meaning Trump has five days to decide whether to allow the Democratic memo’s publication.
Trump declared over the weekend that the GOP memo “totally vindicates” him. After the House committee vote Monday, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the panel’s top Democrat, said he believed the Democratic document would “help inform the public.” Paradoxically, Schiff complained last week that the release of either memo would compromise national security.
It was a common theme among top Democrats leading up to the shocking memo’s public release. Pelosi claimed Trump had “abdicated his responsibilities as commander in chief to protect the American people by protecting our intelligence sources and the rest.”
Now she’s singing a totally different tune. Monday, she released the following statement: “The President must now put our national security and intelligence first, and expeditiously release the Democratic memo after review and appropriate redaction of sources and methods by law enforcement officials.”
