HRC Responds to Release of Nunes Memo
WASHINGTON — Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, responded to the release of the disputed GOP intelligence memo that accuses the FBI of abusing its surveillance powers:
“Devin Nunes has shown more loyalty to Donald Trump than the Constitution or the rule of law. The release of this sloppy, cherry-picked memo is a blatant partisan attempt to smear law enforcement and Mueller’s investigation. We can’t let them get away with it,” said Chad Griffin, President of HRC.
“Devin Nunes, Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, and their enablers have shown no interest in the truth--only misleading the American public and discrediting a criminal investigation. We need every Member of Congress on both sides of the aisle to stand against this manipulation of national security.”
“History is watching. Silence makes you complicit. For the sake of the country, stand up and do something.”
The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and in every community.
