Top Democrats are calling on Facebook and Twitter to investigate and release information behind potential Russian-linked accounts pushing for the release of a sealed congressional memo allegedly containing details on US government surveillance abuses.
It couldn’t possibly be that there really is a broad public hue and cry to that information released. Us uninformed voters, denizens of fly-over country, couldn’t possibly know enough to demand the release on our own.
No, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D, CA) and Congressman Adam Schiff (D, CA), the two “top Democrats” in the quote, are desperate to have a distraction. Us uninformed might find out too much.
It’s rich coming from a Senator who released to the public, unethically, a Senate Judiciary Committee report concerning Fusion GPS and then blamed her unethical behavior on having taken cold medicines and so she wasn’t thinking clearly. Feinstein and I are of an age, and I’ve taken cold medicines, too. They’ve never addled my brain.
It’s also a bit much coming from a Congressman who’s not the least bit curious about the Steele dossier; he just wants that matter dropped.
