The Republican Party are desperate to cover up the treason committed by Donald Trump. For the last week they have been crowing about how the memo they were about to release would clear Trump and demonstrate how the investigation into criminal Republican cooperation with the Russian government is a scam. I was actually concerned, not that it might be true, but that the lies might be problematic. I forgot to take GOP incompetence into account. I now call that memo, the dud.

It appears the best part of this is all the “Yo memo” jokes is has spawned. “Yo memo is so dumb that Eric Trump got higher SAT scores than it did/” “Yo memo is such a disappointment it could be another Trump son.” Don’t take my word for it – they are all over Twitter, and all over articles at Raw Story, Daily Kos, and probably other places.

thank you, sadly I think too many are not pointing out the problems with the memo and that tRUMP and the Repuglicons are only about their base.......and not the people of the the way, I am sick of tRUMPenstein or tRUMPLE-THIN_SKIN using "America" all the time when they mean the USA,.....America would include everyone on the continents including Canada, Mexico and Southwards

Great article, Tom.
It is a dud, and it's backfired way back!

Meanwhile, in Fresno, Fresno County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz (D), has stepped up to beat Nunes in the Nov. midterms. He's taken in $100,000 between today and yesterday for his campaign.
WooHoo !!!!

Rachel ends on The Dud with: “What a fiasco, what an embarrassment.” and that sums it up perfectly.
Nunes made a desperate attempt to “adapt” an existing memo to clear Drumpf once and for all and bring Mueller’s investigation to a screeching halt, but did it so badly that it now proves the opposite. The FBI and DOJ seeking a FISA for Carter Page was completely legal and above board, but it were in fact Paul Ryan and the White House who meddled in the continuation of these FISA and told Page about it in October as is obvious from his interview with Chris Hayes.

But this also gives me pause to wonder if the venom of this Dud isn’t in its tail. Carter Page is without doubt a Russian agent of some sorts and I’m sure the FBI have also investigated his dealings with Drumpf when he was a senior member of Drumpf’s campaign. The fact that Drumpf and his minions tried denying even knowing Page when the news of him being investigated came out, speaks for itself. It is unclear if Page is important in the case Mueller is putting together, most likely for everyone including Drumpf and the GOP, and declassifying information on Page’s investigation in the memo might be a way of prohibiting Mueller from using Page against Drumpf preemptively.
Is anyone versed enough in American legal matters to know if declassifying this information and going public with it would compromise Mueller’s investigation in any way?

“The memo” is DOA (dead on arrival) based on the excellent analysis by Rachel.

From The Hill: Trump says memo release ‘totally vindicates’ him in Russia probe. I don’t think he read the thing because it does the opposite. There have been allegations for what seems weeks that Nunes altered the memo leaving out salient points and leaving in a critical sentence near the end. Such incompetence!!!

From The Hill : Drumpf: “… I think it is a disgrace. … But I think it is a disgrace what is happening in our country, … a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and much worse than that. … a lot of people should be ashamed.”

The only ones that should be ashamed are Drumpf and Republicans who have tried to sell this elephant shit to the country. Vindication? Only in Drumpf’s reality, or is that dreams. Drumpf and Republicans need to be brought down hard, harder than a WWF body slam!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Trump looks to be dead in the water (except in his own mind of course). Its the rest of 'em that should be scrambling for cover. What comes around goes around and they should get whats coming to them.

The American voting public needs to make it stick. Either way, America gets what it deserves. What do you think you deserve? This lifes lesson is called consequences. Are you a servant to the government, or is the government a servant to you? Better decide whose in charge or it will be decided for you.

You don't need to be mean, nasty, rude or threatening, you just have to express your opinion politely, be firm and consequent. They may actually be pleased that someone is watching and cares, let that person be you.

Good luck America, don't let them hornswaggle you. Trump is a serial conman, and he has conned many but its no reason to let him get away with it again and again. Its not your job to be the victim, so don't be.

There is no doubt in my mind this is a dud. It's also very clear how much more intelligent Rachel is than almost anyone in the GOP. What idiots. Perhaps Nunes was on drugs when he wrote this memo; it certainly is rather convoluted. Thanks for the post, TomCat.
