The left wonders when the right started hating the FBI

The left believes the Nunes memo muddies the waters of the Robert Mueller investigation, whether you believe it or not. A roundup of editorials Monday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the left:

1. Nunes Paves Trump's Road to Autocracy

From columnist E.J. Dionne: Remember, the only purpose the Nunes memo serves is to discredit Robert Mueller’s investigation.

2. How Conservatives Learned to Hate the FBI

From Politico: The White House needs to use caution if it is going to take on the agency that keeps the secrets.

3. The real worry about Nunes memo is Trump’s ‘vindication’ claims and the conceit itself

From the Aurora Sentinel: Trump has been warned that if he follows Richard Nixon’s example, he’ll set off a constitutional crisis. 


The right sees the Nunes memo as just the beginning.

Opinion: The ‘Criminal Deep State’ lunacy

Donald Trump rode to political prominence by claiming that Barack Obama isn’t a natural-born citizen, dismissing documentation of Obama’s Hawaii birth as some international conspiracy hatched way back in 1961 to prepare for Obama’s illegitimate election as president some 47 years later.
