House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., arrives for the a closed-door meeting of the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill, Monday, Feb. 5, 2018 in Washington.

The release of the Nunes memo did exactly what the GOP wanted. It muddied the waters. A roundup of editorials Tuesday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the left:
1. The real shock of the Nunes memo
From CNN: What Americans need to know isn’t bits and pieces of a process. They need to know everything the judge knew when he approved the extension of surveillance.

2. Nunes memo further evidence of GOP kowtowing to Trump
From The Register-Guard: Is this the hill Republicans want to die on?

3. #ReleaseTheMemo wasn't about transparency 
From Sen. Ron Wyden: Why did Republicans oppose revealing categories of who is targeted under FISA warrants when they revealed specifics of surveillance.

The right sees more evidence of the ‘deep state’ to come
