In a decision which should surprise nobody, the House Intelligence Committee voted to make the now-infamous four-page “FISA memo” public. The document, authored by GOP staffers for Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), is said to contain “shocking” and “jaw dropping” evidence of surveillance abuses within the FBI and DOJ during the 2016 presidential election.

President Trump now has five days to review and reject the memo’s publication, however that’s unlikely as the White House signaled support for the memo’s release – sentiment President Trump is said to have personally conveyed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions through White House Chief-of-Staff, John Kelly.
Trump “is inclined to have that released just because it will shed light,” said a senior administration official who was speaking on the condition of anonymity to recount private conversations. “Apparently all the rumors are that it will shed light, it will help the investigators come to a conclusion.”
The contents of the memo are so explosive, says Journalist Sara Carter, that it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice and the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.

A source close to the matter told Fox News that “the memo details the Intelligence Committee’s oversight work for the FBI and Justice, including the controversy over unmasking and FISA surveillance.”
Top Democrat Adam Schiff (D-CA) responded to Monday’s vote, saying “we’ve crossed a deeply regrettable line”, adding that the “committee voted to put the president’s interest above the interest of the country.”

While the precise contents of the memo remain unknown, it’s believed to contain allegations that the FBI did not adequately explain to a clandestine court that some of the information it used in a surveillance warrant application for Trump adviser Carter Page came from opposition research funded by the Clinton campaign, now known as the “Steele dossier.”
Three House lawmakers who have read the memo told Bloomberg that, the memo claims FBI officials didn’t provide a complete set of facts in requests made to a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court to obtain a warrant or warrants on Carter Page, a one-time advisor to the Trump campaign.
Furthermore, the memo is also said to claim that important details were left out that might have kept a judge from issuing a surveillance warrant, or possibly two, targeting Page. Those include its claims that investigators were relying partly on an unverified dossier put together by an opposition research firm that hired a former British spy, Christopher Steele — work that was funded by Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, and Democrats.
Furthermore, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein’s role in approving the warrant application comes under fire in the document, according to the New York Times. Rosenstein appointed Mueller and has become a recent target on the right — as well as reportedly garnering the frustration of the president.
The memo was released to the full House of Representatitves on January 18th.
Lawmakers who have seen the memo are calling for its immediate release, while the phrases “explosive,” “shocking,” “troubling,” and “alarming” have all been used in all sincerity. One congressman even likened the report’s details to KGB activity in Russia. “It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told Fox News. “It’s troubling. It is shocking,” North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
Shifty Adam Schiff. There is always something in a last name.
I really hope that this is something of substance and not just a nothing burger
Very surprising development. Trump should write his own State of the union speech and highlight his “drain the swamp” progress. Expect tamper tantrums from the marxist media.
It will be most interesting to see how universal creational-natural laws come down on shifty-Schiff. I wouldn’t want to be him. He is truly one of the most reprehensible despicable characters of the current day.
“However, when the consequences, i.e. the destiny resulting out of your thoughts, feelings, decisions, deeds, actions and your activity, will strike you is fundamentally different for each consequence, so it can be immediately or only in a few hours, days, weeks or months or perhaps even in years or decades, but it will certainly be in your present actual life, because nothing can be carried into the fine-fluidal world of the other world nor into a new life on Earth, as is erroneously mistaught through various of your religious, ideological and philosophical irrational teachings, as for example through the far-from-the-truth irrational Karma-teaching.”
You cuckpots can’t handle the Schiff. All the tidbits have been leaked. The fact that the Committee refused to allow the minority report to be issued simultaneously says it all… you morons would be screaming if the Dems took that same action. Its all a sideshow for Trump’s doltish dwindling base. However, in the main ring Mueller continues uninterrupted and True Americans have hope that a cholesterol laden bag of cheeseburgers does Gods work. Amen.
Juice.. you be trippin’ ?
no worries. the minority smear will be leaked and it will show it’s nothing but another unsubstantiated deep state made up hoax just like the whole #russiagate. Even the slimeball homo Graham said recently there’s no evidence of collusion. the reason why minority smear was not released is because no credible person, other than filthy zionistas, would give it any legitimacy. it will be leaked, that’s how these lawless marxists operate.
traderconfessions – hope you are well this morning.
i want to ask what it feels like being so angry all the time. does being really angry 100% of the time affect other parts of your life? are there other parts of your life for it to affect? maybe not.
anyway, i find you intriguing and must know more. you are clearly very intelligent, despite your anger. you might be one of the smarter people i’ve come across on the internet – which kind of makes me think you are an AI program unleashed on ibankcoin.com by the genius radical left in silicon valley. i gotta say, i admire you even though we disagree. you are truly one of a kind, and i appreciate that.
just kidding. you suck.
You doing the smear jobs for criminals. You’re a tool.
