With regard to the House Intelligence Committee memo about the attempt to rig the 2016 election, this paper’s hypocrisy is more than evident. If you change the dates on the FISC requests to 2008, and change the names to Bush administration officials at the FBI and Department of Justice, you would be screaming in capital letters on the front page for heads to roll.

Why do you wish to hide information from your readers that indicates the Obama FBI and DOJ may have been involved in an attempt to spy on the Trump campaign in order to rig the 2016 election for Clinton? If this is true it makes Watergate look like an operation by a bunch of amateurs. Take the blinders off, print the memo for your readers. We don’t need you to tell us what to think.
