That such abuses were perpetrated during the Obama years will come as no bombshell to conservatives who have been following the Obama abuses of the intelligence capabilities of the us government to spy on reporters and embarrass and intimidate political opponents.
Author, former Secret Service agent and former congressional candidate Dan Bongino tweeted: "Take it to the bank, the FBI/FISA docs are devastating for the Dems".
Democrats opposed the motion to make the classified report alleging extensive "FISA Abuse" related to the controversial Trump dossier available to all House members.
Senior government officials who chose to remain anonymous told Carter that the contents of the memo could also spell an end to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into claims that Russian Federation colluded with the Trump campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election. Some members of the House viewed the document in a secure room Thursday.
Several Republican congressmen - many of whom have been highly critical of the special counsel Robert Mueller, the FBI, and the investigation into Trump's ties to Russian Federation - have released statements calling on the House Intelligence Committee to declassify and release Nunes' four-page memo.
While still classified to the public, the four-page memo has become an instant fixation online - thanks in part to Russian propaganda accounts, according to a website claiming to track Russian influence in real time.
"You think about, 'Is this happening in America or is this the KGB?' That's how alarming it is", Rep. Scott Perry (R-Penn.) told Fox News.
'Hot' Yoga Is No Better for Your Heart
Instead of the heat causing this, the study authors believe stretches and muscular contractions during yoga may be responsible. Any form of exercise which forces them to dilate can increase blood flow, lowering blood pressure.
"It's troubling. It is shocking", North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows told Fox's Catherine Herridge.
Details on the memo have not been released yet, but many people are saying that the memo's contents will be "explosive" with Florida Republican senator Matt Gaetz saying on Fox News, "the facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency".
"I believe the effect of its release will be major changes in people now working at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice".
To release the memo, House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) must call a vote. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. There seems to be something more concerning the FBI, DOJ, and apparently now how FISA is used by the intelligence community.
Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act now allows the USA intelligence community to intercept foreign persons "reasonably believed to be located outside the United States" in order to "acquire foreign intelligence information". "It's going to punch a hole in their collusion narrative".
If the Representative learned of the memo before the vote on S. 139, why did he not publicly push for its release to all House members prior to the vote on S. 139?
And that's were CHQ readers and friends come in.
Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee are demanding the public release of a Justice Department memo that reportedly exposes the Obama administration's attempt to spy on Trump campaign officials during the 2016 election season.
