After the White House and the House Intelligence Committee released the (former) classified FISA memo on Friday, a memo which describes the endemic corruption in the DOJ and FBI’s higher echelons during former President Barack Obama’s administration, the Deep State went into a death spiral, circling the drain so to speak, while their mouthpieces in the media, together with various Democrats started claiming the memo is just a nothing-burger.
The highly anticipated memorandum compiled using official documents released by the FBI and the DOJ was written by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes and other members/staffers of the House Intelligence Committee and details how the Federal Bureau of Investigations obtained a FISA warrant in order to spy on the Trump campaign using the fake intel in the discredited Steele Pissgate dossier, an oppo-research file created by a foreign national using Russian sources; by the way, Christopher Steel is a former MI6 operative and his “work” was funded by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.
However, despite the major blow received by the intelligence community following the memorandum being made public on Friday, for Clinton and Obama apologists, the revelations contained in the FISA memo were just a nothing-burger. Here’s the guy who let Hillary Clinton off the hook for extreme carelessness, prior to the 2016 election. Do you remember him?
That’s it? Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen. For what? DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs.

He sounds relieved. He knows a lot and thought that more was coming out. This may be just the tip of the iceberg. Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi also regards the releasing of the memo to be Trump ceding his “constitutional responsibility as Commander-in-Chief.”
.@realDonaldTrump has surrendered his constitutional responsibility as Commander-in-Chief by releasing Nunes’ unredacted, classified memo. His decision undermines our national security and is a bouquet to his friend Putin. pic.twitter.com/kdUgIrCE6l

And here’s Rachel Maddow from MSNBC:
A year attacking the Steele dossier.
A month hyping that the dossier started the whole FBI investigation.
Weeks hyping that they have a memo (a memo!) that will finally prove it!
So… is there some other memo?
Because this one says it was Papadopoulos, not the dossier.

Remember how the Left screamed all week that releasing the FISA memo would make for a breach in national security, the sky will fall and all that? Now it’s a nothing burger?
MEMO summary: Foreigner working for DNC (STEELE) was fed information by foreigners (RUSSIANS) and he passed that information to a US Intelligence agency (FBI) and the media (YAHOO) then FBI used STEELE and YAHOO as basis to spy on an American (PAGE).
In a nutshell: Federal officials conspired to spy on a rival political campaign using information they had not verified from people they knew were untrustworthy. And these officials deliberately and repeatedly defrauded the judiciary by withholding key information.

FBI knowing used Clinton paid oppo research which was unvetted to seek FISA warrants against the opposition party candidate. Obama weaponized the FISA Courts.
That is HUGE.
Talk about "meddling with elections"…

Memo: No FISA warrant without Dossier. Which means no Russia collusion story without Dossier. Which means no Mueller special counsel without Dossier paid for by Clinton/DNC. Shut it down.

An unprecedented Government abuse of power and corruption case. Those involved used HRC bought and paid for Russian lies as the basis to obtain a FISA warrant vs an opposition party candidate and Potus elect. And worse, they knew it was full of lies, and not verified.
