The classified Nunes memo has finally been released by The House Intelligence Committee on alleged FISA abuses.
The memo released was fiercely opposed by the intelligence community and the FBI leaked a “rare public statement” to share its “grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”
Here are a few things the memo claims from AXIOS:
Additionally, the memo also states that the info about President Trump’s campaign adviser George Papadopolous “triggered the opening of an FBI counterintelligence investigation in July 2016 by Peter Strzok, one of the FBI agents who later got in trouble for texts about Trump and Clinton.”
Finally, we have answers and received the information we have been waiting for. With the FISA memo being released, we can finally confirm everything we knew was taking place. Barack Obama’s FBI and DOJ was spying on President Trump, and they did use a fake Russian dossier to gain a FISA warrant to do their dirty work.
The four page memo has been declassified and shows that the anti-Trump dossier that was bought and paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton, that was written by an ex British spy, Christopher Steele, who hates Trump, was used to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump.
The memo also states that the FISA court, which approved the warrant to spy on Trump, did not have all the full picture from the dossier at the time the warrant was approved. Multiple key facts appear to have been purposefully omitted from the FISA applications, such as the fact the Christopher Steele hated Trump.
Also, the memo states the application submitted to the FISA court to spy on Trump “cited extensively a September 2016 Yahoo News article which focuses on Trump aide Carter Page’s trip to Moscow.” However, the memo states “this article doesn’t corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News.”
Holy cow. Steele, who was rabidly anti-Trump, leaked information to Yahoo News, who then wrote an article which was then used to obtain a warrant to spy on Trump. THIS IS FAR WORSE THAN WATERGATE.
Additionally, the memo reveals that the FBI and the DOJ used the media to lend credibility to the dossier thus proving collusion between the FBI, DOJ and the media.
Also, the memo reveals that JAMES COMEY SIGNED OFF ON MULTIPLE FISA APPLICATIONS TO SPY ON TRUMP. It also says that Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said “no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISC without the Steele dossier information.” WOW.
During that same time frame Christopher Steele was briefing members of the U.S. media on his “findings.” He was also funneling information to the FBI through DOJ officials.
This is HUGE. This proves collusion on so many levels, illegally, to stop Trump from becoming President, and it was the basis for Mueller’s investigation.
Here’s what Trump had to say when asked if he has confidence in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Trump says: “You figure that one out”:
