CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Attacks GOP for Memo Release: ‘Putin Has Succeeded’

Friday on CNN’s “Wolf,” host Wolf Blitzer harangued Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, for releasing the much-anticipated FISA memo and doing so not at the same time as the Democratic Party minority memo, so that a side-by-side comparison could be made.

Stewart dismissed the criticism, but later in the segment, Blitzer accused Stewart and the GOP of allowing Russian President Vladimir Putin to succeed given the member created doubt in U.S. government agencies.
