Republicans futilely try to contain the Nunes memo
This opinion from The Washington Post was chosen as a view from the left because of the following types of opinions expressed:
- While congressional Republicans are downplaying the significance of the memo, insisting it is not connected to the Russia investigation, this is just a deliberate tactic to conceal that they are actively attempting to sabotage the FBI and their investigation into Russian election interference.
- Trump himself has said the memo proves his claims of a "witch hunt" against him, which guarantees his supporters will believe it to be just that.
- Despite the language of House Republicans, the memo is significant because it represents an intentional attempt by a party to undermine the efforts of the FBI.
