If you have been wondering why the Mueller investigation has been dragging on for the past year without a single indictment related to Trump-Russia collusion but instead seems to be digging into other unrelated matters simply to remain relevant, a classified report released yesterday may hold some of the answers.
According to Sara Carter and Fox News, a classified document viewed by several members of the House Intelligence Committee and then made available to all House members details “explosive” Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses that are tied to the GPS Fusion dossier.
According to Fox News, the four-page memo that alleges “United States government surveillance abuses is being described by lawmakers as ‘shocking,’ ‘troubling’ and ‘alarming,’ with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.”
The memo is apparently the work product of the investigation mentioned by House Intelligence Committee Chair, Devin Nunez (R-CA), who previously stated, “We have had an ongoing investigation into DOJ [Department of Justice] and FBI since mid-summer for both FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court] abuse and other matters that we can’t get into too much. But it is very concerning.”
According to Sara Carter, “The document also apparently outlines ‘several problematic’ issues with how FISA warrants were ‘packaged, and used’ state several sources with knowledge of the report.” Elaborating, she stated, “But the government official, who viewed the document said ‘it will be tough for a lot of people to see this and especially the media, which has been attempting to deemphasize the dossier. It’s going to punch a hole in their collusion narrative.’”
IMPORTANT UPDATE 01-21-18: The House Intelligence Committee decided to release the memo to the public.
Great news! Our efforts to #ReleaseTheMemo have been effective and the HPSIC plans to begin the process to release the FBI/FISA/Russia memo. This may take up to 19+ Congressional work days but Americans deserve to know the truth.
