The Democratic memo showed the Republican memo to be exactly what it is – red meat to the right. A roundup of editorials Tuesday takes a look at the issue.
From USA Today: The memo shows that the FBI had good reason to wiretap Carter Page.
A bombshell footnote left unredacted in the just-released memo "correcting the record" on the Russia investigation shows why, as early as 2013, the FBI thought Carter Page might be a Russian spy https://t.co/yqbVaHMOF7— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) February 27, 2018
From Vox: The Democratic memo shows that the FBI did not use the Steele dossier as a reason to go after Page, but as supporting evidence for its action.
Not surprised the White House tried to bury our memo, or that the President would feel the need to go on Fox to explain why two of his foreign policy advisors were having secret discussions with the Russians. Hard to claim “vindication” with these facts. pic.twitter.com/Jnlf9ynXE7— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) February 25, 2018
From U.S. News and World Report: The Schiff memo showed just how bad the Nunes memo is.
