‘Shocking’ House Intel Memo Sent to President Trump for Review & Release to Public
- Democrats in Panic Mode
The GOP-majority House Intelligence Committee voted Monday to release the memo calling out the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI of misusing their authority to get a secret surveillance order on an ex-Trump campaign aide.
Rep. Adam Schiff, (D-CA) announced the action at a news briefing, and immediately complained the Republican members voted against also releasing a minority memo that rebuts the data in memo written by panel Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, (R-CA).
Under the a House rule invoked by the committee, President Donald Trump now has 5 days to review the document, declassify the information, and decide when to release it to the American people.
The White House has repeatedly indicated it wants the memo out, while the DOJ hasbeen working to slow or block its release.
According to HeffX-LTN sources, the memo, which was made available to all members of the House contends DOJ and FBI officials were not forthcoming to a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court Judge.
Republicans accuse the agencies of failing to disclose that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Presidential campaign helped finance the research used to obtain a warrant for surveillance of Carter Page, a Trump campaign adviser.
HeffX-LTN has learned that the memo reveals Trump-appointed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein signed off on an application to extend the surveillance of Mr. Page last Spring.
Republicans on the committee has not issued a statement so far this Monday evening.
Next expect the IG of the DOJ’s report will officially validate the House Intel Committee’s memo.
Conclusion: The Clinton and Hussein Obamaites in the DOJ and FBI are about to ‘Boil in Oil’
