Sarah Sanders just broke her silence on the Nunes memo and she is not playing any games.
Sarah knows the world is watching what she says and she chose her words carefully.
She delivered a devastating rebuke of all things corrupt and if Obama and Comey know what’s good for them, they are already calling their lawyers.
Sarah released this statement:
“Earlier today, President Donald J. Trump declassified a memorandum from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The memorandum raises serious concerns about the integrity of decisions made at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and the FBI to use the Government’s most intrusive surveillance tools against American citizens.
This decision was made with input from the President’s national security team—including law enforcement officials and members of the intelligence community, for whom the President has great respect. He is especially grateful to the hardworking rank-and-file public servants who work every day to keep America safe and uphold our laws while protecting the constitutional rights of all Americans.”
Look, America is demanding to know what is going on at the highest levels of our Government.
Democracy dies in darkness so the saying goes and if we don’t figure this out we stand close to doing irreparable harm to our fragile democracy.
We must protect sources and methods and national security and we must not condemn the rank and file of the FBI and DOJ, but asking questions of what leadership did with their immense powers is critical to keeping our democracy whole.
With the memo released, the left is demanding the release of their own rebuttal and to that Sarah and Trump both say fine.
Let us get all this out there so the American people can judge. After all, we are the final arbitrators of what will be tolerated in our country.
If we don’t like it we will vote the bums out, just as we did when we voted Trump in.
“The administration stands ready to work with Congress to accommodate oversight requests consistent with applicable standards, including the need to protect intelligence sources and methods,” she said.
The memo raises serious questions and America wants the answers. Trump wants it all out so America can decide.
Let’s put an end to this whole sordid affair by dumping it all so we can finally see what our Government does behind closed doors.
As Matt Gaetz said…
I call on every American citizen to read this memo, not with preconceived partisan rancor, but with clear eyes and open minds. We must work together to ensure these atrocities included in the FISA Memo never happen again. #MemoDay

At the very least the Democrats should get on board if only for the simple reason that it could be them next time.
