Ex-RNC Chairman Rips Nunes Memo For The Joke It Is: ‘The Onion’ Is Mad You’re ‘Stealing Their Material’
On Friday, after the controversial memo attacking the FBI was revealed, former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele blasted it and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA).
The ex-chairman took to Twitter and called out the memo for being a joke, saying that “The folks at @TheOnion after reading the #NunesMemo have sent a cease and desist order to the House Intelligence Committee for stealing their material.”

The Onion is a parody website that publishes articles on international, national, and local news. In fact, they posted an article on Friday headlined, “Breaking: Nunes Memo Exposes Deep Bias, Corruption In Devin Nunes.”
The memo has drawn criticism from Democrats and intelligence agencies. Many believe the memo is an attempt to undermine the FBI to help save Donald Trump from the ongoing Russia investigation.
