House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was in full-fledged panic mode earlier Thursday, demanding Speaker of the House Paul Ryan remove Devin Nunes from his position just hours before the House Intelligence Committee is set to release the controversial FISA memo to the general public.
Pelosi posted her incendiary letter to Speaker Ryan on social media, saying Nunes’ “deliberately dishonest actions make him unfit to serve” and called for his “immediate removal” from the Committee.
.@DevinNunes’ deliberately dishonest actions make him unfit to serve as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. @SpeakerRyan must immediately remove him from this position. #RemoveNunes https://t.co/RPehm3Rvib

“Both the DOJ and FBI oppose releasing the Nunes memo. As the Department of Justice warned, the public release of the memo would be an ‘unprecedented action’ and ‘extraordinarily reckless,’” wrote Pelosi. “The FBI also expressed that the agency has ‘grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.’”
“It is long overdue that you, as Speaker, put an end to this charade and hold Congressman Nunes and all Congressional Republicans accountable to the oath they have taken to support and defend the Constitution, and protect the American people,” she added.
