House Intelligence Committee Democrat Adam Schiff is protesting yesterday's party-line vote to release the Nunes memo on alleged FBI surveillance abuse without letting the FBI and DOJ vet it to censor anything that might compromise their sources and methods. Schiff called it “a deeply regrettable state of affairs,” but said “it does show how, in my view, when you have a deeply flawed person in the Oval Office, that flaw can infect the whole of government, and today, tragically, it infected our committee.”

Funny, I have a feeling that the very reason why Americans need to see that memo is that it will compromise sources and methods that never should have been used by the FBI, and that it will reveal that our intelligence community has tragically been infected by some deeply-flawed persons who abused their power to try to determine which person ended up in the Oval Office. I guess there’s only one way to find out which one of us is correct, and keeping that memo hidden from public view isn’t it.

On the subject of willful ignorance by Congressional Democrats, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is also upset at the idea of the public being exposed to all that blinding transparency about their own government. But even reliably liberal CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is having a hard time buying her argument.

Check out this exchange in which he plays “devil’s advocate” (I’m not sure the devil is actually the champion of truth and openness, but whatever) and states the Republican case for releasing the Nunes memo, which Pelosi dismisses, claiming it’s a threat to the intelligence community. When Cuomo reminds her that the FBI director saw it and didn’t immediately say not to release it, she fires back, “Let me just say this with all due respect, you really don’t know what you’re talking about right now.”

Cuomo replies, “But did Christopher Wray look at it or no?”

Pelosi: “I can’t say whether he did or not.”

Only in Washington would someone who represents a party that refuses to read a document accuse others of not knowing what they’re talking about while admitting she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

    Seeing this picture of Nancy Pelosi, reminded me, did you see the video of her stating that the memo everyone wanted released was a lie and was written by the republicans and not the democrats, basically saying to blame it on them? Can she really just lie outright like that and get by with it? I was stunned. Don't know why, but I was.

    How much longer will we have to listen to "Pathetic Pelosi" rants and "Crooked Hillary" lies anyway?

    Nancy Pelosi is a piece of work. She wouldn't know the truth if it hit her in the face. Nancy Pelosi needs to a fit for duty exam.

    I have said it for years: Nancy is nuts!! Only a far left district in California would continue to send her back to Washington term after term. Or, perhaps they just don't want her living to close...
