In her bilious op-ed today Flo Charles makes so many false statements that I'm having trouble counting them for the over under contest. Let's go with her big whopper for starters:

A classified, four-page memo may be made public soon confirming that the Obama Administration spied on the Trump campaign. This memo details the FISA abuses and the way the information was obtained by the Trump haters in the FBI.

Look...There is no classified four page memo!

So we have the Nixonian dirty trick of claiming you have a "secret memo" that proves the FBI was after Trump for no good reason. But the memo was actually written by Republicans:

According to Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, "a profoundly misleading set of talking points drafted by Republican staff attacking the FBI and its handling of the investigation," which references "classified materials that most of the Republican Intelligence Committee members were forced to acknowledge they have never read." One of those talking points, it appears, involves an accusation reported by Politico that one Trump foreign-policy aide was “inappropriately” surveilled during the campaign, in a misuse of FISA (the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act).

The "secret memo" is being hyped by Sean Hannity on Fox News as if it contained classified information. It doesn't. But Russian bots have been hyping that meme to gullible people on social media.

Flo Charles has bought into that hook line and sinker...Unless Flo is a Russian agent herself?

Why does the Roane County News let itself be used for such transparent propaganda instigated by the enemies of America?
