Nancy Pelosi and CNN’s Own, Chris Cuomo butt heads over the Nunes memo.
Nancy Pelosi gets ruffled by CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s push to release the memo and tells Cuomo ‘you don’t know what you’re talking about. Pelosi’s argument doesn’t really make sense and it looks like Cuomo knows it.
On one hand, Pelosi argues that the memo is a fake. Even claiming that Nunes didn’t read the documents related to his own memo and that the President himself probably didn’t take the time to read the memo before announcing plans to release it. All the while Pelosi simultaneously declares the memo a serious threat to national security because of the facts within it. So which is it?
“I’m saying you guys redact what you need to redact but then let the American people decide…”, Cuomo said.
“No, that’s not the way intelligence works,” Pelosi interrupts.
The two continue on a back and forth before Pelosi tries to change the narrative to this being a matter of national security and the memo being a distraction from the Meuller investigation. As soon as Cuomo tries to reel the conversation back to compromising and releasing the memo Pelosi flusters and sputters through her points.
At some point, Pelosi thinks she speaks for the American working class like we don’t have time to review the ‘ominous’ memo she just gets more incensed from there so we included the full version for your review.

“Christopher Wray, the director of the FBI obviously recently selected by President Trump, he got the memo. He could have come out and said ‘This is reckless, don’t release it,’” Cuomo stated.
“Let me just say this with all due respect, you really don’t know what you’re talking about right now,” Pelosi responded.
“But did Christopher Wray look at it or no?”
Pelosi: “I can’t say whether he did or not but he did not, he did not–in order to redact, you have to have the people who know…”
“I’m not saying redact, I’m saying if these concerns are so sharp and obvious…” Cuomo included.
Pelosi shot back, “Well, they’ve already said not to release it. They already said not to release–the Justice Department already said it would be reckless to release it. You said that earlier.”
“The DOJ said it. We’ve been reporting it absolutely,” Cuomo clarifies.
There must be some pretty damning information in this memo but if it’s left up to the Democrats we will never know.
