Letter to the Editor: Crying time again
Opinion

The Republicans released their long-awaited memo that asserts that a couple of Federal Bureau of Investigation leaders and a Department of Justice guy knowingly screwed up the application of a wiretap warrant. In short, the memo says that it seems that some federal cops and one federal district attorney misused their offices to try and dig political dirt.

So far it looks like pretty small stuff when compared to Mr. Herbert Hoover’s blackmail files which he kept in his closet with his accouterments. We had a corrupt FBI then. It can happen twice.

As far as I can see, no spy secrets were revealed by the release of the memo in spite of the crying and sniffling from Mr. James Comey. This is the same Mr. Comey that got weak in the knees when he asserted that the President seemed to ask him to bend the rules. That man needs to man up.

I have no idea why Christopher Wray, the new head of the FBI, who appears to be grown, is so whiney about this. He is from Georgia and I thought we took criticism like adults.

The same with the Department of Justice. Mr. Jeff Sessions should firmly square away those blue stocking lawyers and make sure they follow the rules. They are very smart with lots of Harvard degrees but they need to come up to scratch just like the rest of us.

The Democratic leaders told us that the release of this memo would destroy the entire security system of the U.S. That was a crock. I get embarrassed for the American people when I hear these loonies talk. 

The memo does not undermine the Special Prosecutors task as some Republicans hopefully and wrongly asserted. The questions about the Russian involvement remain and should be continued to the last piece of hard evidence. The American people need to know the facts. Facts, not opinions about facts, would be nice. We are not stupid. We can figure out what the facts show.

It is a joke that the liberals of the national media are now concerned with keeping government secrets after years of publishing leaked papers of classified material.

Give me a break.

What this whole affair says to me is that we have sent a bunch of nuts to D.C. as Democrats. And that we have a fair share of them in the Republican Party. Thank God for a few adult Republicans.
