WASHINGTON, D.C. – The much-discussed House Intelligence memo is out, Save Jerseyans, and it seems to bolster allegations leveled by both the White House and Republicans in Congress of secret surveillance abuses by both the FBI and U.S. Justice Department.
Debate over what exactly the memo says — and doesn’t — will undoubtedly continue.
Congressman Tom MacArthur (R, NJ-03) acknowledged the memorandum’s findings while simultaneously advocating for perspective as the new details in the Russian probe’s never-ending drama are digested and analyzed…
“The allegations in this memo are serious, but must not be used to impugn the good men and women at the FBI or discredit the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Anytime we are talking about abuse of government, the American people need to know, especially when there is an allegation of an American citizen’s rights being curtailed. Congress must not allow this to become a distraction from the work we need to do to continue to grow our economy and secure our national defense.”
Reactions from new media voices and outlets were far less generous to federal law enforcement and the media:
More House Intel memo key point: DOJ official Bruce Ohr relayed information about Christopher Steele's bias. Steele told Ohr that he, Steele, was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected president and was passionate about him not becoming president. https://t.co/0RoIarYAah
