FISA Abuse

The Gig is up

Congressman Matt Gaetz told Fox News this morning that the bombshell FISA abuse memo, which some claim could end the Mueller investigation and lead to top officials going to jail, is set to be released soon.

The classified Department of Justice memo is suspected to contain evidence of illegal FBI and DOJ spying on the Trump campaign at the behest of Hillary Clinton.

According to journalist Sara Carter, the memo is so “explosive” that it could lead to “the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.”

Numerous lawmakers are calling for the document to be publicly released, with Rep. Steve King describing it as “worse than Watergate”.

Appearing on Fox News, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who previously asserted that people will “go to jail” over the memo, suggested that the release of the document is on the horizon.

I forget, it was either Miami or Florida State that got no repercussions for a mountain of booster scandal because the NCAA investigated improperly. Hope that's not what we're heading towards.

Here's CBS story.

No details, just people being "shocked" along party lines.

This story is Watergate x 10 and has been building for months. And yet it's likely to come as a surprise to most DSF posters.

Conspiracy at high levels in FBI and DOJ to influence the election and to then overturn the result.

The only collusion that took place was between Hillary, the DNC, rogue agents at the FBI and whatever foreign agents they paid to cook up a false "dossier" used to get a FISA warrant that authorized or enabled spying on Trump campaign and American citizens.

how do we know they're rogue agents at the FBI?

Gotta believe the rank and file is clean. It’s the garbage at the top.

agreed, but if it's come from the top, that doesn't seem like rogue agents to me - if FISA warrants were obtained for DNC opposition research, that's strong evidence of the politicizing and weaponizing of the FBI. That's a major culture shift.

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz said he believed people could lose their jobs after the memo is released.
“I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice,” he said, referencing DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr.

If people don't go to prison, it's probably not more than Watergate X 0.1. One person going to prison would make it Watergate x 0.333, give or take, depending on the stature of the person going to prison.


All that being said, without knowing what's in the memo, I'm already on board with changing rules and firing people. Just don't have the facts needs to say how or who, specifically.

I’m able to put 2 and 2 and 2 and 2 and 2 together. Do that five times and it’s 10. Like I said, this story has been building for months.
