For the past 36 hours, as Republican congressmen rally to discredit the Russia Investigation, we have been hearing them speak about a so-called ‘Secret Society’ within the FBI. This, combined with the ‘missing 50,000 texts’ from two FBI agents who were not fans of Trump ( which I now hereby dub Butter E-mails 2: Electric Boogaloo), has created a counter-narrative that the FBI is poisoned and biased against Trump. This was revealed to be nonsense yesterday as the sole mention was in a text that, in context, was probably meant to be a joke.
Thing is, they have to have known that it was. For all the guff we give conservatives about how there aren’t really any popular comedians with conservatives, they have to know what is and isn’t a joke, right? I can only conclude that its part of an increasingly desperate campaign to derail the investigation. Speaking of increasingly desperate Republican congressmen…
Hey! It’s everyone’s favorite corrupt-as-hell sack of vaudevillian flopsweat Congressman Devin Nunes! He’s got a secret memo, written in crayon, that Democrats can’t see, Senate Republicans aren’t allowed to see, his Republican House colleagues are allowed to see, that he wants to release to the public that shows irrefutable proof that FBI are big meany-heads who just don’t like Trump. Too bad Assistant Attorney General Boyd pointed out that doing so would be releasing classified info would be incredibly wreckless and violate terms of an information-sharing agreement with DOJ seeing as these documents were viewed in a SCIF.
Oh, and Chuck Grassley wants to release the terms associated with the recommendations he made to criminally prosecute Christopher Steele. Everything is fine!
