Re: The Memo
My apologies for a rather long silence. I have had other preoccupations, including a long and impassioned Facebook exchange on the subject of sexual harassment and its consequences.
I am now concerned to know your stand on the infamous “memo,” authored by Devin Nunes and his staff and much touted as some kind of evidence that the FBI and the Justice Department have been conspiring to impugn the reputation of Donald Trump and undermine the Russia inquiry, with the immediate goal, it seems, of removing suspected enemies from office.
It does seem inappropriate, would you not agree, to manufacture your own evidence? Especially when you conspire, at the same time, to suppress the evidence of others. I suspect that much is being made of very little and that the roar is that of a mouse rather than a lion.
Perhaps you know more about this than I do? If you support the release of this disputed memo, I’d be grateful if you would let me and my fellow constituents know your reasons. We are sorely in need of some sanity and reason here. Why is it so important to disprove what is widely known: that a hostile country interfered in our democratic process. Should all Americans not agree to know the truth about this attack on our country, and devise ways to prevent its recurrence in the future?
