Cortez Masto on Nunes Memo: Chairman Nunes is Enabling Trump Assault on Law Enforcement

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement after the Trump Administration authorized the release of the partisan House Intelligence Committee memo authored by Chairman Nunes’ staff.

“Chairman Nunes has enabled President Trump in his assault on law enforcement and on the integrity of the investigation over foreign interference in our elections. This partisan memo is nothing more than an attempt to distract from the very real issue: Did a presidential candidate’s campaign work with a foreign government to influence our election process? I support the dedicated professionals at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is clear that to some Republicans in Congress, it’s more important to play politics than to support law enforcement. No one should ever be above the law.”
