According to a new Axios report, the propagandistic memo from Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is just the beginning of Republicans’ war on government agencies that don’t fall into line behind President Donald Trump’s authoritarian administration.
“The House Intelligence chair and his team have told members and associates they’ve found other examples of politically motivated ‘wrongdoing’ across various agencies, including the FBI, the broader Justice Department, and the State Department,” Swan writes.
He reports that Republican sources near Nunes “say there could be as many as five additional memos or reports.”
The previously released memo was declassified by Trump to boost his false claims against the FBI. The text of the memo actually provided further evidenceagainst his conspiracy theories.
