Trump Ignores DOJ Warning, Notifies Sessions He Wants FISA Memo Released, by Tyler Burden

If Trump ups the drumbeat calling for release of the FISA memo, it’s hard to see how it won’t get released. From Tyler Durden of

President Trump broke with the Department of Justice last week by calling for the release of a four-page “FISA memo” purportedly summarizing widespread surveillance absues by the FBI, DOJ and Obama Administration, reports the Washington Post.

The President’s desire was relayed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions by White House Chief-of-Staff John Kelly last Wednesday – putting the Trump White House at odds with the DOJ – which said that releasing the classified memo written by congressional republicans “extraordinarily reckless” without allowing the Department of Justice to first review the memo detailing its own criminal malfeasance during and after the 2016 presidential election.

The decision to release the memo ultimately lies with congress.

Somehow WaPo knew that Kelly and Sessions spoke twice last Wednesday – once in person during a “small-group afternoon meeting” and again that night over the phone.

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 memo, written by staffers for House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), was made available for all Congressional House members in mid-January for viewing in a secure room. Lawmakers who have seen the document have called for its release to the general public, as it is said to contain “jaw dropping” revelations of extensive abuse of power and highly illegal collusion between the Obama administration, the FBI, the DOJ and the Clinton Campaign against Donald Trump and his team during and after the 2016 presidential election.

“I have read the memo,” tweeted Rep. Steve King (R-IA), adding “The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was #neverTrump & #alwaysHillary. #releasethememo.”

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.

  1. “So future leaders of the free world take note; you’re not allowed express dissatisfaction when a federal agency allegedly colludes with the previous administration and an establishment candidate to rob you of an election using unverified evidence from Russian officials; it is also frowned upon to have a problem with a kangaroo-court witch hunt launched to push the invented narrative. ”
    The “Memo” should clear up the above. Wonder how many get-out-of-jail passes will be issued. Just a lot of harmless fun.

    Bob Goodlatte and Maria Bartiromo video interview will conclude …

    Goodlatte …..
    “At the end of the day American people are going to have to judge.”

    Question asked by Maria Bartiromo in the Interview to Goodlatte…
    Are we going to see indictments?

    Goodlatte answer … “Well, that’s where Special Counsel comes in, ah because of the fact, ah, neither the Inspector General nor the Congress can indict people. We do not have prosecutorial authority, but, ah, if this continues along the lines that it is where there are alot of questions or an intersection of public information and classified information, you have to have someone who not only can investigate but also can take action on their investigation ah, involving . So, that’s why for very many months I called for Special Counsel.”

    No need for a Special Counsel if the DOJ does his job and indicts.
