February 1, 2018 - San Francisco, CA - Numerous sources seem to confirm that DC’s hottest potato, the “Nunes Memo” will finally be released by the president sometime tomorrow. The topic has quickly morphed into heavy contact sport between various political factions in the nation’s capitol, but the long wait now appears to be just around the corner…assuming “sources” are correct.
If this does happen, the release will fly in the face of the unwritten law, long in vogue among journos/PR types who see Friday as the black hole where controversial news goes to die.
We understand the mechanics of this ongoing controversy and the nature of the media to make every weekend 3 days long, meaning nothing productive gets done while the scriveners nurse their glasses of Chardonnay, but this matter is potentially so earth-shaking that not even the gates of [newsroom] hell can stand against it. Thus, if the memo is released the Sunday talkers are going to get very little sleep during their extended R & R, with Fox claiming:
“President Trump is expected to swiftly declassify a controversial memo on purported surveillance abuses, sources tell Fox News, even as Democrats raise objections that edits were made to the document since it was approved for release by a key committee.
But the objections [made by RAT pols] don’t appear to be halting the publication plans…[so] the release is likely to come Friday morning, Fox News…[has been told]”
A key player in MemoGate is the bug-eyed RAT Rep from CA, Adam Schiff about whom even Politico admits is playing an exceedingly weak hand:
“Rep. Adam Schiff of California [note the lead image] the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, complained …Yet this week, the Senate Intelligence Committee’s top Democrat told Politico,“little of that dossier has either been fully proven….”
Contextualized in DemSpeak, “fully proven” means it’s time for the rats abandon ship.
DC has been abuzz like this many times previously. Hopes have been raised by very flawed GOPers like Trey Gowdy and then dashed when they fail to deliver. But in the wondrously strange new world that Trump has triumphantly brought to Swamp City, this gambit appears to be a very good bet…pass the popcorn.
