The full-fledged media meltdown over the mysterious FISA memo continued Tuesday morning, with ‘Morning Joe’ hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski breathlessly accusing President Trump of orchestrating a “sleazy political purge” at the Department of Justice and the FBI.
Scarborough blasted the President and Speaker Paul Ryan for their “reckless” attacks on the bureau, saying the leaders were “smearing the entire intelligence agency” in order to force out high-level officials.
“So, Ryan and Nunes want to release a half-truth that turns out to be a whole lie. A twisted and distorted lie. Since Ryan thinks the public will never learn the full facts, he and Nunes can skate by on their lie,” said ‘Morning Joe.’
“They can smear distinguished FISA judges and they can smear the entire intelligence community by extension. All to take part in a sleazy political purge that we’ve been seeing unfolding before our eyes, to feed the paranoid and maniacal desires of Donald Trump,” he added.
