I don’t normally get this emotional. But what I just heard on Varney and C0mpany is nonsense. But it is Trump’s nonsense. Granted, I don’t listen to Fox News on a regular basis. It does seem to be going all out for Trump’s twisted narrative about an FBI and Justice Department without integrity or scruples.
Stuart Varney has reported on financial and stock market news for CNN. He graduated from the London School of Economics. He became a US Citizen in 2015.
He said by releasing the Nune’s memo, we will know whether there were a group of anti-Trump conspirators within the FBI and Department of Justice. This is a sham and it is sad to see Fox News sinking this low. There is no loyalty test for the FBI or the Attorney General. Their loyalty is to enforcement of the law.
The reason both the FBI and the Attorney General have advised against release of this memo, is because (a) it makes false statements, (b) it is put together by a partisan group whose only interest is in protecting Trump and his close associates, who might face criminal charges, and (c) the ongoing Russian investigation makes it impossible for the Democrats, the FBI and the Department of Justice to respond.
Secrecy in law enforcement and criminal investigation is essential. Further, whether the FISA warrants might have included some erroneous information, is an issue the President can task the Department of Justice to investigate in private. To release this memo is to play politics and discredit the FBI, the Attorney General and the Department of Justice. It play right into the hands of conspiracy radicals.
