Still on the fence about the Nunes memo? The left has the answer – it’s the Schiff memo


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.

Opinions from the left:

1. Democratic memo shows no abuse of power with wiretap
 

From USA Today: The memo shows that the FBI had good reason to wiretap Carter Page.

2. Democratic rebuttal to the Nunes memo tears it apart
 

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.

3. Nail in the coffin for Nunes memo

From U.S. News and World Report: The Schiff memo showed just how bad the Nunes memo is.

The right puts blame for Parkland where it should be - on government.

Liberals’ policies, not guns, to blame for gun ‘crisis’ A recent letter asserted, “No easy solution for U.S. firearms crisis” (Readers Write, Sept. 9). On the contrary, we have a behavior crisis. In decades past, firearms were more easily available to the public than presently. Not once did the six guns in my room fire...
Opinion: Is Senate committee equipped to grasp Kavanaugh allegations?

For all their well-learned politesse, the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have scarcely been able to conceal their determination to get Christine Blasey Ford out of their hair.
