A constitutional attorney insists that the much-hyped Democratic FISA memo has proven to be a "big fat dud."
The 10-page memo was the Democrats’ response to the Republicans’ four-page memo that was released by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes.
Adam Schiff – the House Intelligence Committee's ranking member – had hyped the long-awaited document, hoping it would somehow refute the revelation of the GOP document that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Justice Department (DOJ) relied heavily on uncorroborated third-hand anonymous sources in their FISA application to spy on the former aide of President Donald Trump, Carter Page.
BarbWire.com Founder Matt Barber offered his legal take of the situation as a constitutional attorney.
"They issued a big nothing burger,” Barber insisted. “And in fact, everything they issued … not only did it not undermine or disprove the Nunes memo … it actually bolstered the Nunes memo and proved that everything in the Nunes memo is 100-percent accurate.”
He maintained that the Democrats should be mortified by their futile and disastrous attempt to discredit Nunes’ memo.
“Their bluff was called,” Barber pointed out. “They're embarrassed by it."
The legal expert says that feeble attempt by the Democrats is one of the biggest scandals Americans have seen – especially as it continues to unfold.
"And I think we've only scratched the surface,” Barber added. “I think we're going to see a lot more, and the Democrats 10-page memo is a big fat dud."
