#ReleaseTheMemo v. #RemoveNunes …Which side are you on?

To properly tell tonight’s story, we need to get into the wayback machine for a minute… Buckle up, folks! OK, so do you remember, last March, way before the national conversation turned to porn stars and shitholes, when Donald Trump informed us that he’d been illegally “wiretapped” by Obama?

Regardless of what you might hear, it hasn’t just been bonuses an pay raises since the GOP tax plan passed
