GOP Congressman Paul Gosar says that the Nunes memo shows “clear and convincing evidence of treason” by the FBI and the DOJ.
Republicans have officially gone off the deep end.
Trump and the Republicans made a decision last week to release a bogus memo written by the staff of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. The memo makes accusations, against the FBI and the DOJ, of wrongdoing in the FISA process. According to Republicans, the entire Mueller investigation is now tainted and should be stopped.
Both the FBI and the DOJ were totally against releasing this memo because of its inaccuracies.
Now that the memo has been released, some Republicans – including Paul Gosar (R-AZ) – are completely losing their minds.
On Friday, Politico reported,
“Gosar, in a statement, blasted the FBI’s use of a surveillance warrant to gather information about a former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page. The Arizona lawmaker cited the document in accusing former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein of breaking the law.”
Gosar put out a statement on Friday saying,
“The full-throated adoption of this illegal misconduct and abuse of FISA by James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates and Rod Rosenstein is not just criminal but constitutes treason.”
Under the Constitution, treason is punishable by death. Gosar says he is pushing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to go after “criminal prosecution against these traitors to our nation.”
It’s amazing the lengths to which the Republicans will go to protect the corruption of Donald Trump.
The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, says,
“The president’s decision to publicly release a misleading memo attacking DOJ & FBI is a transparent attempt to discredit these institutions and undermine Mueller’s probe.”
