Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 08, 2018

In a sign of increasing partisan hostilities, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee plan to construct a wall – a physical partition – separating Republican and Democratic staff members in the committee's secure spaces, according to multiple committee sources. It's expected to happen this spring. For now, some Republican committee members deny knowing anything about it, while strongly suggesting the division is the brainchild of the committee's chairman, Devin Nunes, R-California. "I'm not part of that decision," said Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas. "You've got to talk to Devin. I don't know what they're trying to do one way or the other." "I swear to God I didn't know that," said Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Florida, when asked about the plan. While acknowledging a wall might not be constructive for the committee's work, he said, "The level of trust and the level of everything down there is – it's poison. It's absolute poison down there."

Remember when the usual know-it-all asshats used to run their selves into a frenzy here on the DR claiming OBAMA was the crux of all divisive rhetoric and political dysfunction in the USA

If I was some jackhole "not racist", "non partisan" know-it-all and this last year this would be where I accuse all the "arm flappers" of avoiding this damning topic

Building walls not bridges.

This is your brain on Republican ideology.

If true, wow:

"Rooney said one reason for the tension is an erosion of trust, exacerbated by an ongoing ethics investigation into the "entire Republican staff," including "the woman up front that answers the phone" for alleged leaks. He later added that the matter was being handled by the Office of Congressional Ethics."

Sounds like they need to be building walls between factions of Republicans.
