  1. CNN didn’t wish hard enough. The reporters (so called) meditation waves just could not get Director Wray to say the words. The best they could do was to get him to mutter something about the need to “re-sign the no parking area” in the FBI lot.

  2. Memo to Mr. Comey. They never did name a street after Senator Joesph McCarthy, but they did name the DOJ building and a pro football stadium after the scrawny, little weasle who was the assistant counsel to the Senate committee chaired by McCarthy, Robert Kennedy.

  3. Katy Tur shows what an objective journalist she is by calling someone a “traitor,” simply because she disagrees with him. That ain’t the definition, toots.

    • The media don’t have any trouble with classified information being leaked to them.

      There is ONLY one thing that gives me SLIGHT reason to wonder if the information in that memo won’t be underplayed and wrapped up as quickly. That is that the info in it hasn’t fully aired yet in the media and I’m sure there have been leaks.

      With our media the question and the answer is always– What if a conspiracy was revealed and nobody came…

  4. Just read THE MEMO. DAMNING!
    No wonder Dems and media protectors didn’t want it released. High ranking members of national police force use false information funded by Democrats to obtain court order to spy on Trump campaign members and influence the presidential election. Heads need to roll. Jail needs to be filled.

  5. Re: “MSNBC declares leaks ‘partisan,’ whines about Fox News scoop”: And on Twitter, The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean compared it to Al Capone’s vault. That was the end of the line for me. I unfollowed him.

  6. Today’s most popular links:
    5 vineyard wedding
    4 shapes the news
    3 whines about
    2 #1 in cable news
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Half of CNN’s day goes up in smoke.

  7. “A nothing-burger that will devastate sources and methods!”
    Floor wax and a mouthwash. Cherry-pickin’ good!

    • Everyone said that prior to publishing the memo it was a dire threat to the state and then much ado about nothing after its publishing.

      • As the guy on Friday’s SPECIAL REPORT panel said, “Democrats need to figure out in which lane they’re driving.”

  8. Brian Stelter on Twitter arguing that information from a biased source is perfectly permissible as a basis for a warrant (as though that’s what is solely being argued against) and then negating the arguments of others by calling them politically biased.

    • The left has no scruples so they will say anything to protect their goals. Independents are perplexed by such arguments. That, and Republicans are together 4-square on this are what is important.
