The House of Representatives voted Monday night to release a memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and his staff, which allegedly shows shocking misbehavior in America’s intelligence agencies.
The scandal, which Republicans in Congress have dubbed “worse than Watergate,” could soon reach the American public, if President Trump agrees to permit its release.
Fox News analyst Sebastian Gorka summed up the major implications for the United States, calling it “100 times bigger” than the triggers to the American Revolution in the 1770s.
“It has to be put in the context of the history of our great nation,” Gorka said, while being interviewed by Sean Hannity. “Remember, why was America created? It was created because of the use of power by a leader thousands of miles away. That’s why America was created. It was about a tea tax and stationing troops on private property without permission.”
“This is 100 times bigger,” he added. “This is our government spying on political adversaries. This is federal law enforcement officials obstructing justice. You listed all of the things Clinton and her team did. The FBI destroyed the laptops that were part of the Clinton investigation. Who gave that order?”
Democrats, however, have already sought to downplay the contents of the memo–and accuse Republicans in Congress at misleading the American people. But time will eventually tell which side wins in the court of popular opinion.
