NBC News Reporter Smears House Republicans as ‘Joining Together’ With Russian Propagandists on #ReleaseTheMemo Campaign
This is how a media smear works. House Republicans view a secret memo on the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign, express outrage at what they learned and demand the memo be released to the American people so they can see what their government was doing.
There has been a real attempt to undermine this President & it comes from the scariest of places. The key reason all Americans need to see this memo is that it names Names. Why don’t the Democrats want the American people to know the truth? #ReleaseTheMemo t.co/2A7FF9m17I

I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was #neverTrump & #alwaysHillary. #releasethememo

I viewed the classified report from House Intel relating to the FBI, FISA abuses, the infamous Russian dossier, and so-called "Russian collusion." What I saw is absolutely shocking.
