Shortly after the controversial FISA memo was made available to the public, it sparked a lot of reactions. Democrats aren’t much pleased with the releasing of the memo. They accused President Trump of allowing its release. According to them, the memo directly undermines Mueller’s investigation into Russia interference in 2016 election.
Although most of the Republicans were pushing the release of the memo, Arizona Senator John McCain doesn’t agree with his GOP fellows. According to his remark, he took the other side of the aisle.
According to McCain, releasing the memo helps Putin control America. He condemned President Trump for authorizing the memo release, saying “if we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.”
“In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy,” explained McCain. “And while we have no evidence that these efforts affected the outcome of our election, I fear they succeeded in fueling political discord and dividing us from one another.”
“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s. The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded,” he added.
“Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him,” said McCain.
South Carolina Republican Trey has already destroyed such harsh rebuke, explaining why the memo was released.
“It is important for the American public to know if the dossier was paid for by another candidate, used in court pleadings, vetted before it was used, vetted after it was used, and whether all relevant facts were shared with the tribunal approving of the FISA application.” Gowdy tweeted.
