Paul Ryan said the action of releasing the “Nunes memo” was the “legitimate process of oversight.”

I totally disagree. The proper process is either open or closed hearings attended by the entire intelligence committee, with input from both Democrats and Republican congressmen and congresswomen.

The FBI should have their input and responses in a regular hearing, not by a partisan memo pinned by the extremely partisan Devin Nunes. His actions over the past months have been suspect and odd to say the least. The break of regular procedures and processes is very upsetting and dangerous. It does not give the American people a feeling of confidence that the House of Representatives is conducting themselves in an open and honest manner.
