What Americans Are Writing About Nunes Memo

Famed constitutional lawyer Alan Dershowitz writes for Fox News that the Nunes memo deserves more investigation. He also calls for a nonpartisan commission to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Steve Vladeck, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law, writes for NBC News that FBI Director Christopher Wray must resign. The Nunes memo, he says, leaves Wray with no other choice.

Joe Walsh, Illinois Republican, and a former congressional colleague says Nunes is acting in a purely partisan manner rather than exercising good judgment and discharging his duties in service of the Constitution.

Tom Rogan, opinion writer for the Washington Examiner, says Chairman Devin Nunes and ranking member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) should both resign from the House Intelligence Committee.

The New York Times cataloged the public debate, from the right, left and center, that led up to the memo’s release this morning.

The Comedians’ Punch Lines

“Four pages to discredit the entire FBI? That doesn’t seem like enough detail. I’ve had CVS receipts with more detail than this memo.” — Trevor Noah

“To call Devin Nunes Donald Trump’s lapdog would be an insult to dogs and laps. He’s more of a retriever: Here boy, go write me a memo to smear the FBI.” — Jimmy Kimmel
