It was another rough day for Nancy Pelosi.
The House Intelligence Committee voted Monday afternoon to release of the secret FISA Memo.
The vote was along party lines.
Not a single Democrat voted for transparency.
The memo which was open to all House members to review was read by 190 Republican lawmakers and only 10 Democrats in the last week.
Pelosi has not said if she actually read the memo.
But that didn’t stop her from saying the memo was dangerous and untrue.
FOX News reported:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement that the committee’s Republicans had “crossed from dangerous irresponsibility and disregard for our national security into the realm of cover up” and “disregarded the warnings of the Justice Department and the FBI.”
“Chairman Nunes’ memo contains significant inaccuracies and omissions that misrepresent the underlying intelligence and jeopardize the effectiveness of our intelligence and law enforcement communities,” Pelosi added.
Minority leader Pelosi then went on CNN and stuttered her way through an interview on the memo.
REPORT: What Is Now Going On Behind The Scenes After House Intelligence Committee Votes To #ReleaseTheMemo Democrats are said to be VERY unhappy
Democrats are said to be VERY unhappy. Congressman Schiff attempted to have a minority opinion released as well. Committee voted NO on that move.
POTUS Trump will now have up to five days to review the memo. The memo was (officially) sent to him this afternoon. If Mr. Trump has no objections, it will then be made available to the media/public.
Intelligence officials are said to have already been preparing for what may be “significant backlash” regarding what the memo details. Even more interesting is a flurry of meetings said to have been between current and past intelligence officials and some with ties to the (former) Obama administration.
