6. And this same Patel is the lawyerwho drafted the #Nunes Memo"!!

The #TrumpSwamp just keeps getting stinkier!!


.......This isn’t the first time Kashyap Patel has made an infamous appearance in Trump’s propaganda machine; he’s the attorney who drafted Rep. Nunes’ infamous propaganda memo at the House Intel Committee, which he then very publicly pushed the White House to declassify.

The “Nunes memo” was a dud, but it became a key part of President Trump’s war with the Justice Department last year, which in turn led him to release top-secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance warrant against a former Trump campaign aide who traveled to Russia with campaign permission. That FISA warrant has become a cornerstone of GOP propaganda since then.

It was obvious that yesterday’s testimony by the decorated Iraq-veteran officer’s testimony was crucial, owing to his being the first actual participant in Trump’s July 25th “I need a favor” phone call to Ukrainian President Zelensky to testify.

But Colonel Vindman’s sworn statements to the impeachment inquiry explain that when Patel departed Congress for the White House, he somehow stepped into the chain of command on the National Security Council ahead of a sworn military officer just to prevent conflict with President Trump.
