The memo will be released, but will it achieve what the right wants?


The issue isn’t whether the memo should be released. The issue is the oversight of the FBI and Justice department. A roundup of editorials Friday takes a look at the issue.

1. Let’s see the memo

From The Gainesville Sun: We should see what is in the memo – good or bad.

2. Senator Johnson widens FBI corruption probe

3. Positioning over the Nunes FISA memo continues ahead of its release

From columnist Andrew McCarthy: Why are Democrats condemning the process of releasing the memo?

Opinion: Why HBCUs were worth exploring

I didn’t attend an HBCU, but I grew up surrounded, impressed and humbled by their alumni, legacy and history. So I’ve followed with interest The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s recently concluded series on historically black colleges and universities.
