Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., attends a speech by President Donald Trump at the 2018 House and Senate Republican Member Conference at The Greenbrier, in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018.

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.
