Pelosi melts down after GOP votes to release FISA memo, snaps at Chris Cuomo: ‘You really don’t know what you’re talking about’

As we and others reported Monday, the House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines to release a classified memo said to reveal horrific abuses with the FISA process.  Naturally, this prompted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to melt down during an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

She started by calling Rep. Devin Nunes a “stooge of the White House.”

And it went downhill from there.

“The Republican Party has crossed over to cover up,”she said. “They’re deadly afraid of the Russia investigation.”

She then told Cuomo that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

According to the Daily Caller:

“Christopher Wray, the director of the FBI obviously recently selected by President Trump, he got the memo. He could have come out and said ‘This is reckless, don’t release it,’” Cuomo said.

“Let me just say this with all due respect, you really don’t know what you’re talking about right now,” Pelosi replied.

“But did Christopher Wray look at it or no?”

Pelosi said, “I can’t say whether he did or not but he did not, he did not–in order to redact, you have to have the people who know…”

Twitchy added:

We hate to keep harping on it, but Rep. Ted Lieu, who’s seen the memo, compared it to Geraldo Rivera’s disastrous opening of Al Capone’s vault on live TV. So there’s nothing there, right? Or is it chock full of lies that will manage to deceive the American public?

Others weighed in:

JM Rieger, a producer at HuffPost, tweeted the quote:

“Yup,” said a post at Chicks on the Right. “You can tell because her eyes are darting around a little faster than they usually do. Her facial expression remains the same.”

It sure seems that way.

Here’s video of the full interview, if you can stand it…
