Three Names From The Nunes ‘Memo’ Are Leaked

Rep. Devin Nunes is the chairman of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and is responsible for the FISA Court memo that all are waiting to be released. It has now been reported that three names in this memo about the Russian collusion investigation have now been released. the speculation is that all three of these names may be connected to misconduct on the part of the investigators. Who is named and what are the possible misdeeds? Read on, please.

Want more details than that? Alas, you’re out of luck. The Daily Beast claims that all three men are mentioned in the memo but doesn’t elaborate. Since the memo is allegedly about Russiagate-related misconduct, the inference is that all three are specifically accused of misconduct too, although it’s only an inference.

What would the misconduct be in Rosenstein’s case? He’s a Trump appointee who didn’t become deputy AG until April of last year, long after the investigation began. His most famous act with respect to Russiagate was naming Bob Mueller special counsel after Jeff Sessions recused himself from the probe. He also wrote Sessions a memo last May strongly suggesting that Comey should be fired before Trump pulled the trigger, although Nunes obviously isn’t going to fault Rosenstein for that. Maybe he dings him for failing to follow Sessions’s lead by recusing himself from the probe as well, since his role in Comey’s firing could matter to Mueller’s obstruction investigation of the president?

No way to know. Which is yet another reason why it’s time to #ReleaseTheMemo.
