Because we know you were just dying to know what TRUE REAL UBER CONSERVATIVE Evan McMullin had to say on the Nunes memo, here it is:
The inclusion of the dossier in FISA applications may represent an unprecedented collision of opposition research and national security, but remember: the cause of that was a presidential candidate’s likely collaboration with the very foreign adversary attacking our democracy.

And there it is: “The end justifies the means” defense:
"Doing bad things is ok because our motives are pure" is the eternal cry of the tyrant.
But please do go on to tell me how you are the future of a moral Republican or other party. https://t.co/Tlmp6IfaVX

Evan jumps the shark and raises fist in the air and yells "the end justifies the means". So sad. Propaganda doesn't sale itself. https://t.co/guk7Z3KPMd

The "ends justify the means" defense. I suppose you could use the defense for just about anything, including silencing witnesses?? https://t.co/xknTaz76Na

Ends justify means is the slipperiest of slopes. https://t.co/H3KT0JQbpT

There it is.
Those of you who had Evan McMullin in the pool as first to say the abuse was justified "because Trump," go ahead and DM me for your gift certificates. https://t.co/juVjeeGJUr

And he also accidentally calls the FISA application “BS”:
LOL even McMuffin admits the FISA application is BS

Dear Twitter: Please go back to 140 characters, thanks!
I miss 140-character Twitter, when such a convoluted thought was inexpressible. https://t.co/5xMsMVbOgi

Notice collusion was also downgraded to “likely”:
Oh LOL, McMuffin. Your guaranteed collusion is now "likely"? Even Louise Mensch thinks you're an imbecile.https://t.co/7TjFuikLCH

Dude, please re-read your tweet, think about it and then re-read it again. That is some scary stuff if you truly believe it's OK, that "Likely" is a good enough reason to spit on the Constitution. Is the hate that strong? @Evan_McMullin #ReleaseTheMemo https://t.co/GkEd99sxCC

We also wonder what McMullin thinks might happen once we start allowing this kind of thing:
None of these holier-than-thou morons can even conceive of the possibility that the tables can be turned on them by corrupt government agents.
It can happen to you, Eggy. It can happen to you. https://t.co/kcm82Leryu

Fascism is ok if it’s used against someone you don’t like.

Buyer’s remorse has set in:
I hate that I voted for you. Absolutely hate it. Hate it. https://t.co/F5J335siFL

I know some of you voted for this idiot as a protest vote. I also know that many of your are embarrassed to admit it now: https://t.co/pZizBdLK1B

Oh, well. Just don’t make the same mistake in 2020.
