NeverTrump Republicans Mock the Memo

The NeverTrump Republicans insist the memo is nothing despite Democrat efforts to block its release as a security risk.

Breitbart posted a long roundup of NeverTrump Republicans using their mainstream media identity as alleged “conservatives” to do damage control for the DNC and their FBI partisan agents. Beyond the meaningless verbiage, their main line of attack seems to be that Trump must prove every allegation in the dossier is false—a complete inversion of the law. They also want to secure the Mueller investigation in the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation of George Papadopoulos, ignoring the FISA corruption which was obviously partisan.

All of these DNC stooges insist the memo is nothing, despite that raging opposition of Democrats to releasing the memo, claiming it was a national security risk.

Notably, not all NeverTrump Republicans are siding with the corruption of the FBI. Here’s Representative Peter King:

Breitbart reports, “NeverTrump Rallies to Defend Deep State, Dismiss Memo.

Ostensibly conservative NeverTrump news media figures scorned Friday’s release of a declassified House Intelligence Committee memo detailing alleged abuse by senior FBI and Justice Department officials.

The memo claims that in obtaining warrants to spy on an associate of Donald Trump under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the FBI relied on the “Steele dossier” — an unverified document put together by opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

It further alleges the FBI hid the political origins of the dossier from the FISA court, and exaggerated its accuracy, though it was aware that the source, Christopher Steele, had political and financial motives.

Fusion GPS’s initial research on Donald Trump was funded, via the Washington Free Beacon, by billionaire Paul Singer, “a major funder of the #neverTrump campaign.”

So it is perhaps no surprise that the members of NeverTrump defended the dossier and attacked Friday’s memo.
