House Speaker Paul Ryan shot down calls from his Democratic counterparts to remove Rep. Devin Nunes from the chairmanship of the House Intelligence Committee.
Nunes’ four-page intelligence memo detailing Democratic abuses of the FISA process, in order to surveil President Trump’s campaign and transition team, is set to be de-classified and released by the White House Friday. The FBI is struggling to make redactions to the document before it makes its public debut.
Democratic ranking committee member Rep. Adam Schiff claimed that Nunes changed the memo for White House consumption without giving Schiff and other Democrats a chance to approve the changes.
Not true, says Ryan. Actually, Nunes only made one change in coordination with the FBI, in order to address intelligence agency concerns about redacting some material. Therefore, Nunes’ change was actually a move to make the memo less transparent.
“In consultation with the FBI, they made a change to address those concerns and then they voted on releasing the memo to the White House,” Ryan said.
Ryan addressed reporters’ questions at a congressional retreat Thursday in West Virginia:
TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).

Comey is not alone in his government unemployment.
An interactive mapping project has sprung up on mindmeister to track Deep State conspirator cells that have been fired in the age of President Donald Trump.
