WSJ Editorial Board Calls On Trump To Release The Memo

In an editorial that appeared in today’s paper, the Wall Street Journal editorial board officially called on the Trump White House to release the infamous “FISA memo” – something that conservatives have been demanding for weeks now, with little luck.

Fortunately, shortly after the editorial was posted online last night, Trump promised that the memo was “100%” going to be released – despite pleas from Rod Rosenstein, the deputy AG who appointed Mueller and is purportedly named in the four page memo – that its release could compromise existing investigations. This morning, Chief of Staff John Kelly revealed in a Fox radio interview that he had seen the memo, and that it will be released “pretty quick.”

It’s unsurprising that Democrats have opposed the memo’s release at every turn – accusing Republicans of distorting the truth for political ends. The hypocrisy here is glaring because, of course, Democrats have an enormous political stake in whether this memo sees the light of day, or not.

But tellingly, in their criticisms, Dems have chosen to ignore the central question: Is the FBI guilty of “egregious abuses”, like the Nunes has claimed?

Suddenly, it seems, progressives who went into hysterics following Snowden’s decision to expose the NSA’s shockingly pervasive – and legally dubious – domestic surveillance programs – are no longer concerned with abuses of power by federal law enforcement or intelligence agencies, and apparently no longer believe that FISA decisions should be subject to more oversight. Many also vociferously opposed the ratification of Section 702 of the FISA Act, which Congress voted to renew earlier this month.

As anybody who can remember when the FBI was run by J Edgar Hoover, the agency’s history is littered with examples of these types of abuses.

But progressive Democrats like Intel Committee ranking member Adam Schiff apparently have selective amnesia when it comes to abuses perpetrated by their one-time leader, former President Barack Obama.

House Democrats: Please – tell us again about your commitment to social justice?
