Twitter Breaks Down Democratic Rebuttal Memo: Nunes ‘Should Apologize And Step Down’

On Saturday afternoon, Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee released their long-awaited rebuttal to the memo written by Chairman Devin Nunes which alleged FISA abuses by the FBI and Dept. of Justice.

Stunningly, the Democrats’ memo – which defends those bodies against Republican claims that they abused they powers to obtain wiretapping warrants on member of President Donald Trump’s campaign — was released while Nunes was speaking at CPAC.

Theatrics aside, the key claim of the Democrats’ memo seems to be this:

“FBI and DOJ officials did not ‘abuse’ the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign.”

Twitter got to work analyzing the claims made in the memo as soon as it was released. You can read it for yourself here.
