The House Intelligenc Committee memorandum could threaten the entire Washington ecosystem (i.e., the swamp). From Tom Luongo at tomluongo.me:
The FISA memo was released by the White House today. Completely unredacted. The fight to keep this memo out of the public eye has been intense. And since it’s existence was made known it has clarified our domestic politics in a way that few objects ever have.
With Russia-gate failing, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation stalling, this memo will make it clear that the only thing that matters in Washington D.C. is winning.
Political victories, not serving the people who elected you, are more important than any other consideration.
From Rep. Adam Schiff’s increasingly desperate attempts to stonewall the truth to the FBI’s predictable appeals to secrecy from law enforcement to cover corruption, this memo is lifting the scales from the eyes of voters all over the country.
It’s telling them the cockroaches have run out of corners to hide in.
Time to put on our pointy shoes and start kickin’.
The reaction to this memo puts paid the classic libertarian critique that an organization’s highest priority is self-preservation. Doing what you formed the organization to do comes a distant second.
Government creates organizations that are not directly accountable to the people who fund them and therefore can dig moats around themselves to ensure their survival no matter what.
This is the essence of corruption. It is the essence of why the Swamp needs to be drained.
The FBI is a corrupt and venal organization of power-hungry, self-righteous arbiters of arbitrary justice. Even the good agents are tainted by the organizational rot. The same is true in every government department.
No one sees corruption like a government employee with half a conscience.
The pressure to not release this memo comes from formerly very powerful people – Obama and his staff, the Clintons, the DNC, etc. The fallout will be an overhaul from the ground up of multiple powerful agencies within the Federal Government.
This is what Donald Trump was elected to do.
