"The Memo"? Updated

Could this be true? If so, the federal bureaucracy has become rogue agencies and, possible, traitors in that they broke their oaths to uphold the Constitution of the United States (hat tip to Infidel Bloggers Alliance for the short video below):


The minute that any member of any branch of our gubmint doesn't want WE THE PEOPLE to have access to something, WE THE PEOPLE should demand to have access to that something. After all, all of our elected gubmint officials are supposed to be the elected public servants of WE THE PEOPLE.

Update:

The memo's text is HERE. So far, that site hasn't crashed. HERE is the Scribd link, which stays up or goes down according to how busy the traffic is.

  1. The Dems are SO scared one actually is threatening to release other highly confidential information if this memo is released. I wish I'd written down his name because that story lasted 13 seconds. It's interesting to see how many are coming up with reasons to make the Reps look wrong/bad for releasing it. They can give it but they sure can't take it...

  2. Careful what you wish for. Given that Nunes has a reputation for being a sniveling partisan hack you may go in looking for The Pentagon Papers and end up with Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi.

    One theory that rings true is that, since a direct attack on Mueller has been ruled out, this is a strategy to control Mueller by ginning up a reason to fire Rosenstein (Mueller's boss) and replace him with someone who can sidetrack the investigation.

    After all, we wouldn't want we the people to find out that the great businessman (LMAO) who couldn't stay solvent without Russian money launders came with considerable strings attached.

      They used campaign dirt to get a FISA warrant. If verified, people will be fired and, I hope, some will be prosecuted.

  3. Fruit of the tainted tree. All three FISA applications for surveillance of Carter Page were bogus. Muellers entire investigation is based upon prosecutorial misconduct.

      * Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.

      * The political origins of the Steele dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials, but excluded from the FISA applications.

      * DOJ official Bruce Ohr met with Steele beginning in the summer of 2016 and relayed to DOJ information about Steele's bias. Steele told Ohr that he, Steele, was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected president and was passionate about him not becoming president.

  5. IF Nunes and President Trump are as smart as they seem to be, this is devastating.

    Consider: President Trump and Nunes are privy to EVERYTHING, including documents supporting the memo, and the FISA warrants themselves.

    The ball is now in the FBI's court, and they know what President Trump and Nunes knows, so they can't continue bullshitting everybody.

    4. Also Carter Page had been under FISA surveillance since 2014, the dossier may have served the cause of renewing an already extant FISA investigation into Page's contacts with the Russians.

      Robbed of Republican spin, we have a dirtbag under surveillance for Russian contacts since two years before Trump was ever a candidate, and the continued investigation caught up Trump's people making contacts to the Russians.

      And two of those are going to jail for it.

  12. “The latest attacks against the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests ― no party’s, no President’s, only Putin’s,” McCain added. “The American people deserve to know all the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded. Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the lens of politics and manufacturing political sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.” John McCain, this morning.

    7. The first is a counter-intel investigation. The memo deals with the FISA request, which happened in 2016.

      Page had already been interviewed once by the FBI, he knew they were "on to him," so the normal procedure would have been for the FBI or some government agency to provide a counter-intel briefing to Trump and his top campaign people and warn them off of Page.

      That is what the did for Hillary's campaign when they got too chummy with people known by federal law enforcement to be Russian agents.

      Funny enough, all this really points to is that Donald Trump was never the target.

      Anyway, we're only seeing a few of the pieces right now. Plenty more to come, and I say the more sunshine the better. This is a serious civil liberties issue.

    9. He was "warned off" by wise DC insiders. I'm not defending his poor staffing choices. I am pointing out how Obama officials handled insider threats in the two campaigns differently.

      Inside Trump communications now part of the record show top officials rejecting Page's suggestions Trump go to Russia. After Page himself went, the campaign let him go. Also, Page never met with Trump himself.

      We'll be able to fill the picture in better as more details come out. Stay tuned.

  17. ⦁ The FBI relied heavily on Democratic Party dossier to obtain three surveillance warrants before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The FBI did not tell the court the information came from a Democratic Party-financed opposition research. FBI knew source.

    ⦁ In one application to judges, FBI cited two sources, the dossier and a story by Yahoo News. But the Yahoo story was based on the dossier. Not really two sources.

    ⦁ Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe said warrants on Trump volunteer Carter Page could not have been obtained without dossier.

    ⦁ Dossier writer Christopher Steele lied to FBI when he said he did not speak with media. He has said in libel case that he spoke to reporters repeatedly.

    ⦁ FBI fired Mr. Steele. He then continued to funnel information to the agency through former associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr. Bruce Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion GPS, the opposition research that paid Mr. Steele. She passed Fusion research to the FBI, which never disclosed source to FISA court.

    ⦁ Mr. Steele said he wanted to destroy Trump’s presidency with a dossier that remains discredited.

    ⦁ Former FBI director James Comey signed three surveillance warrants on Trump campaign aid Carter Page at the same time he told President-elect Trump that the dossier was “salacious and unverified.”

  19. Muddy Waters ... (and not the musician)

    Right now, it looks like politically-motivated leakers used the Carter Page investigation/surveillance to throw mud on Donald Trump and discredit him in the public eye.

    Is Mueller investigating alleged crimes? Or is it a counter-intelligence investigation?

    Whoever gamed all this out did so to discredit candidate Trump, and when against all odds he was elected, to hamstring and booby-trap his administration at every turn. Getting Sessions to recuse, and then appointing Mueller assured President Trump and his administration would be back on their heels and under a cloud of suspicion.

    The conspirators who cooked that up and executed it are brilliant, and they should all be hanged by the neck until dead for their treason.

    7. After losing what should have been a pretty winnable election, it would make sense for Hillary Clinton to sit down with her team and assess what happened and why they lost. It would be useful information for anybody that wants to challenge Trump in 2020. However, that kind of self-reflection would be grounds for accepting responsibility for something and Hillary Clinton does not do that.

      Instead, Hillary chose to blame James Comey. In revealing what is either a stunning lack of self-awareness or just her innate penchant for blaming others for her troubles, she decided to attempt to make the case to donors the reason she lost states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio was due to letters sent by FBI Director James Comey to members of Congress about her emails.

    When then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton set-up and then President Obama approved and announced the sale of 20% of our uranium stocks to Russia, that sale itself dictated that said 20% had to be replenished in order to bring our country’s uranium stocks back up to 100%. And where would that uranium come from…some might just come from the up-to-this-point unmined uranium deposits in Alabama…maybe even from under the ground Jeff Sessions owns the mineral rights to. Possibly then making Sessions one very rich man no matter his department’s recusal from drilling and mining issues, this could be yet another reason why he will not take sides on G.O.P. demands to probe “years-old matters” connecting Hillary Clinton to Russia.
