This is going to get interesting! I think the .gov shutdown by the Democrats a really a distraction from this very apparent damning memo!

January 19, 2018

Republicans are lining up to view the classified FISA abuse memo, while Democrats choose to stay in the dark
More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign.

But almost all of them were Republicans.

Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said.

The classified memo was described by senior government officials as a detailed account of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into the FBI and apparent FISA abuse associated with the controversial dossier that alleged President Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election. As recently reported, some congressional members who reviewed the memo said the revelations may end in the removal or criminal prosecution of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice.

Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to make the classified memo public, the House Intelligence Committee, chaired by California Republican Devin Nunes, must first have another vote, a congressional source stated.

The vote is expected to happen and then the classified memo will be given to “POTUS for five days” so he can review it, the source stated. If POTUS objects to releasing the memo it will then go to the full House for a vote, they added.

President Trump is expected to approve the release of the memo.

Members who viewed the document say it is especially significant since the DOJ’s Inspector General Michale E. Horowitz will be issuing a report into how the FBI and DOJ handled the investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her use of an unsecured private server to send classified information.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL, who viewed the memo Thursday said they are demanding it be made public but could not discuss the details of the memo due to its classified nature.

Rep. Adam Schiff, R- CA, said in a statement the memo is “profoundly misleading set of talking points drafted by Republican staff attacking the FBI and its handling of the investigation,” he said in a statement to CNN.

The classified memo, however, is expected to expose severe abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which allows the intelligence community to gather communications on foreign subjects. Americans, however, are swept up in the collection of telephone, email and various other communications. The secret court chided the Obama administration in declassified documents when it discovered that one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream Internet data on Americans inside the NSA’s so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011. The Obama administration self disclosed these violations just days before the 2016 presidential election.

The failure of the Obama administration to disclose the extent of the violations earlier amounted to an “institutional lack of candor” and that the improper searches constituted a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue,” according to the court documents that were unsealed April 26, 2017.

The Senate voted 65-34 on Thursday to reauthorize a FISA provision for another six years, allowing the U.S. intelligence community to conduct surveillance on foreign targets.

Tough times for dems indeed.
With new document dumps proving hillary lied under oath to congress, the email investigations are reopened.
The Uranium deal has an investigation ongoing with an FBI informant no longer teathered by a non disclosure agreement testifying in closed session, and now this FISA investigation.
Just think how much of this graft and corruption would have not been uncovered if hillary had won.

I just can't fathom why the Democrats will do literally anything to remain in office and power. They are destroying all trust and belief in our political system. They are rotten to the core, all of them. At least there are a few-mighty few among the Republican ranks that are somewhat trustworthy.
