It’s an amazing thing to witness – liberal-on-liberal crime.
That’s what happened when House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went on the show of Andrew Cuomo’s little brother to discuss the release of a controversial FISA memo.
The memo purportedly details alleged FISA court abuses under the Barack Obama Administration, with some experts claiming it could lead to the removal of high-ranking officials.
Rep. Steve King went so far as to say what he has seen in the memo is far worse than the Watergate scandal.
I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was #neverTrump & #alwaysHillary. #releasethememo

The House Intelligence Committee voted on Monday afternoon to release the memo, with not one single Democrat voting in the affirmative. Let that sink in for a minute – not one Democrat wants you, the American people, to see what is in that memo.
Top members of the Party such as Pelosi and Adam Schiff have been making the media rounds, declaring war against the memo’s release, claiming it’s reckless and would do irreparable harm to the intelligence community.
In a statement after the vote to release the memo, Pelosi said Republicans had “crossed from dangerous irresponsibility and disregard for our national security into the realm of cover-up” and “disregarded the warnings of the Justice Department and the FBI.”
Cuomo, oddly enough, wasn’t really buying what Pelosi was selling, pointing out that FBI Director Christopher Wray could have echoed her sentiments.
“Christopher Wray, the director of the FBI obviously recently selected by President Trump, he got the memo. He could have come out and said ‘This is reckless, don’t release it,’” Cuomo said.
Pelosi stuttered and sputtered her way into a very defensive response.
“Let me just say this with all due respect, you really don’t know what you’re talking about right now,” she shot back.

Oof. Somebody is a wee bit edgy over the release of this memo it seems.
Pelosi added that “They (Republicans) have made up a memo that isn’t even true. And they’re lying to the American people.”
Rep. Trey Gowdy, however, claims the memo will reveal so much more to the American people.
“If you think your viewers want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used, whether or not it’s ever been vetted — if you are interested in who paid for the dossier, if you are interested in Christopher Steele’s relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, then, yes, you will want the memo to come out,” Gowdy said.
Is it any wonder Pelosi is lashing out, even at normally friendly sources like CNN’s Cuomo? They desperately want their Obama-era abuses kept under wraps.
Cuomo took to social media to respond to Pelosi, calling her a ‘partisan who doesn’t like being tested.’
When will you guys see the truth: partisans don’t like being tested. When the media is doing the job it will not be popular. I am fine with that https://t.co/8MaanGQabd

It’s not that she doesn’t want to be tested, it’s that Cuomo actually offered his viewers a rare glimpse into the devil’s advocate point of view. In other words – the truth.
That’s what angers Pelosi more than anything.
