This Oct. 24, 2017, file photo shows House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., speaking on Capitol Hill in Washington. Twitter accounts linked to Russian influence operations are pushing a conservative meme related to the investigation of Russian election interference, researchers say.

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.

Opinions from the right:

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

From American Greatness: A memo that shows FBI corruption would be a bad thing, but it could be much worse than we think.

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?
