If we have learned anything through history, it’s that any, and every, group that has been given absolute trust has absolutely disappointed its constituents eventually.
The simple fact that “the swamp” doesn’t want “We the People” to see this memo should tell you everything you need to know.
They (the FBI and the democrats) are fighting, scratching and saying anything and everything they can to avoid having the light of day shined on this memo.
“It (the memo) will create a constitutional crisis,” they say. (Well, then all the reason to release it! The first step in solving a problem is admitting you have a problem.)
“They (We the People) won’t understand what was actually happening here,” they say. (I’m sure we’ll be pretty much able to figure it out. I mean if these politicians can figure it out…)
“The release of a Republican memo detailing the FBI’s alleged surveillance abuses would undermine the confidence people have in the FBI,” they say. (Translation: We want the American people to go on blindly trusting the FBI, no matter they do.)
“The FBI has grave concerns about the release of this memo,” they say. (This may be one of the few genuinely truthful statements released by the FBI about this whole mess. I’m sure they are concerned.)
“Government ought to be all outside and no inside. Everybody knows that corruption thrives in secret places, and avoids public places. We believe it a fair presumption that secrecy means impropriety.” – President Woodrow Wilson
