Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Stressing that such an action would be highly reckless, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned Thursday that releasing the "Nunes Memo" could potentially undermine faith in the massive, unaccountable government secret agencies of the United States. "Making this memo public will almost certainly impede our ability to conduct clandestine activities operating outside any legal or judicial system on an international scale," said Wray, noting that it was essential that mutual trust exist between the American people and the vast, mysterious cabal given free rein to use any tactics necessary to conduct surveillance on U.S. citizens or subvert religious and political groups. "If we take away the people's faith in this shadowy monolith exempt from any consequences, all that's left is an extensive network of rogue, unelected intelligence officers carrying out extrajudicial missions for a variety of subjective, and occasionally personal, reasons."

Yeah cuz in an age of terrorism we don't need agencies that can operate outside of common knowledge, Republicans used to understand that unfortunate fact but today, because of their President being a traitor, they put politics before country and whine that our intel agencies should be open to public scrutiny when only a couple of years ago they would have said the exact opposite. The Right Wing has no shame. When they see financial gain by aligning with ISIS they will.
