I am irate, this democrat memo is a travesty. The conciliatory manner of the republicans in addressing this falls far short of the outrage it should engender. The memo basically says the democrats are playing the republicans for fools to get as much from them as they can, then cast them aside for an independent investigation.
This borders on treason, and it is time the republican party stands up to this abhorrent tactic, instead of bending over backward to capitulate. It is time the republican party stands up and fights for those of us who vote for them, and authorizes a full and complete investigation into the politicization of this committee. This cannot be allowed, this committee deals with information too sensitive for it to ever be allowed to be used in the manner that memo seeks to use it. It is despicable.
The republicans cannot let them change the subject, or divert it to the intelligence investigation, what they did was criminal and heads should roll. There is no justification, and it cannot be allowed to be swept under the carper for the sake of decorum in the Senate. Their ability to lead is at stake, their credibility to fight those who would seek to use that committee for propaganda and political purposes is being challenged.
The republicans need to stop playing softball, the democrats aren't, as this memo points out. No matter how good of friends republicans think they are, they have no hesitation to use the republicans on the committee without batting an eye.
It is time for the republicans to start acting like a majority party.

This borders on treason
No. It is treason.
Someone needs to be made an example of over this one to prevent future such subversion by the Democrats. As Zell Miller said, "heads should roll".
