    Nunes is on record as saying the FBI stonewalled Congress over their information on the whole collusion story, including the Steele dossier. Is that true? If so, why? Am I to believe Nunes lied about that? Can the FBI show documents that were provided when asked for? I'll be honest here, it feels like this shit has been going on forever, stonewall while we destroy any incriminating evidence, just like the IRS did in the Lois Lerner thing. And I won't say the Repubs haven't done the same thing, though not to the extent the Dems have. Maybe it's always been this way and it's just coming to light in a big way, I dunno. But I'll say this, I do not trust my gov't, hardly any of them. It's all half-truths and innuendo, implications without support, charges and counter charges and grandstanding for the media. IOW, my gov't truly sucks.

    Great!

    When will Mueller conduct the investigation of Hillary creating a fake dossier to win the election as she colluded with Russian spies?

    Kinda interesting the Gowdy is just one of the two who read the memo, decides not to run, tells his fellow committee Repugs that he supports Mueller 100% and to lay off Mueller.
    I heard Gowdy is getting sick of Trump and his zealots in Washington.

    Or Gowdy was going to quit anyway, reads the memo and realizes there's no better time to make sure his seat stay Red. No idea where Gowdy stand with respect to Trump, but it is possible he just doesn't want to stay in Congress and put up with all the horse pucky. Some of which does come from Trump, I'll give you that.

    It's also kinda interesting that the FBI Director sees the Nunes memo and the deputy director gets canned not long afterwards.

    I suspect that is why he's not returning. I doubt he'd ever work for Trump.

    From your link in Post #10:

    “This memo is nothing but the distilling, a reducing of thousands of pages of documents provided to us by the [Justice] Department and the bureau," Gowdy said. "There is nothing in this memo that the department is not already aware of.”

    So why are the Dems so hell-bent on keeping this memo a secret? By fighting the release of this memo to the public they want to keep us all in the dark, correct? They can redact the details for whatever needs to be kept secret and let everybody know what the hell was going on. If it's nothing then the GOP will have a lot of egg on their faces, but if not then maybe it's best to shed the light of day of those responsible for making certain decisions. And then asking the Dems what the fuck is their problem? If there are lies or half-truths in there then the FBI will have the opportunity to point it out chapter and verse to Congress, behind closed doors if necessary. If the Dems want to release their own memo that summarizes the investigation thus far then IMHO that should happen. We can judge for ourselves what is BS and what isn't.

    We can sit here all day and theorize why Gowdy said this or that or why he announced his decision not to run for re-election. Which he's been saying for some time now, he just made it official. Again, I have no idea where Gowdy stand with respect to Trump, but it is possible he just doesn't want to stay in Congress and put up with all the horse pucky. To read anything more into that is pretty much idle speculation.
