Breaking: How the Nunes Memo Cherry Picked Information

First, let’s ignore that Devin Nunes just said he actually never read the FISA warrant and then wrote a memo on it. Both Republicans and Democrats are saying by disclosing classified information, Trump had “sent his friend Putin a bouquet,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Former FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired last year, said the memo doesn’t add up to much.

“That’s it?” he said on Twitter.

Comey called the memo “dishonest and misleading” and not worth the damage it’s done to public trust in U.S. intelligence agencies.

U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes of California, the chairman of the House committee, said he hoped the release “will shine a light on this alarming series of events” and spur “reforms that allow the American people to have full faith and confidence in their governing institutions.”

Democrats on the House Judiciary committee also said House Republicans are “accomplices” to obstruction of justice.

Rep. Adam B. Schiff  of California, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, tweeted his thoughts on Friday: “The country’s top elected leader has agreed to selectively and misleadingly release classified info to attack the FBI — that’s what would have been unthinkable a short time ago.”

Earlier this week, the FBI said it had “grave” concerns about the memo and that it included inaccurate and misleading information.

The memo claims a group that includes former FBI Director James B. Comey, his former deputy Andrew McCabe, former deputy attorney general Sally Yates and current Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein approved court surveillance requests that left out key facts about why a former intelligence officer from Britain supplied the information, the Washington Post reported.

The memo says the former agent, Christopher Steele, “was suspended and then terminated as an FBI source for what the FBI defines as the most serious of violations — an unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI,” the Post reported.

Thomas O’Connor, president of the FBI Agents Association, staunchly defending the federal law enforcement arm in a statement released Friday: “the men and women of the FBI put their lives on the line every day in the fight against terrorists and criminals because of their dedication to our country and the Constitution. The American people should know that they continue to be well-served by the world’s preeminent law enforcement agency. FBI Special Agents have not, and will not, allow partisan politics to distract us from our solemn commitment to our mission.”

Motel 6 Denies Couple Room Saying Puerto Rican Driver’s License isn’t U.S. ID

A Puerto Rican couple visiting Sacramento County for their niece’s wedding said they were unable to check into a Rancho Cordova Motel 6 because the racist front desk clerk didn’t believe they had valid U.S. identification.

When Raul Villanueva presented his Puerto Rico driver’s license late Wednesday night, the clerk told him, “Oh, you need a license from the United States,” he said.

“I said, ‘This is a license from the United States, that’s Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is the United States.’ She said, ‘No, it isn’t,’” Villanueva recalled.

Villanueva needed his ID in order to verify his reservation. The woman working at the front desk then asked for his and his wife’s passports, which he reluctantly retrieved.

“She wouldn’t take the passports after all,” Villanueva said. “When I brought them she said, ‘No, I won’t take it. I won’t take that.’ So I said, ‘OK, then give me my money back.’”

The couple called Motel 6’s corporate office Thursday and talked to a representative. The person apologized for the mistake and admitted Puerto Rican identification is on their list of accepted IDs.

The couple ended up staying the night with a relative. They still haven’t received their money back from Motel 6.

Border Patrol Turns Against Trump, Calls His Border Plan “Colossal waste.”

The National Border Patrol Council seemingly has turned against Trump, calling Trump’s efforrts to send National Guard troops to the American-Mexican border, nothing but a huge “colossal waste of resources.”

“We have seen no benefit,” said Brandon Judd, president of the union that represents 15,000 agents, the National Border Patrol Council. “We generally support the administration, but we’re not going to be cheerleading when things are not going well,” Judd said.

Additionally, Agent Chris Cabrera, a spokesman for the union in the Rio Grande Valley, said troops are stationed far from the border, duplicating rather than lessening agents’ workload – and often getting in the way and sometimes getting lost.

He points out that most of the troops are just standing around, having to find “busy work.”

Texas Rep. Mary E. Gonzalez, who represents a district outside El Paso, agrees. “The National Guard deployment is a waste of finite resources, and is duplicative of existing border security efforts.”

on

According the Nevada Independent Editor Jon Ralston, the Las Vegas Review Journal has ordered its reporters not to cover the Democratic debate between  Gubernatorial Democratic Candidates. The Review Journal is owned by GOP Mega-donor Sheldon Adelson.

What began as an abstract fear of a powerful new owner’s political hand wanting to steer the paper’s news coverage, after Sheldon Adelson was revealed as the “secret” buyer of the Review-Journal in 2015, has become a reality: Addelson is now controlling the political content specifically to harm Democrats.
