The much-anticipated, and much maligned, House Intelligence Committee memo has been declassified and released. There are two types of response to the 4-page memo. One is that it is no big deal and inconsequential, and the other is that it is indicative of collusion and corruption between a political campaign, the FBI, and the Department of Justice. You can also place the people commenting on the memo into two categories : those that have read and understand it, and those who haven’t and just take CNN/MSNBC at their word. If you’re in the first camp, you are likely outraged and if you’re in the second, you’re likely misinformed and falling for DeepState propaganda.
Let’s sum up what we learned from the memo. Four times before, during, and after the 2016 election, the DOJ and FBI went to the FISA court ( an unconstitutional secret court that allows spying on American citizens without telling them ) to get a warrant to surveil Carter Page, a peripheral and sometime advisor to the Trump campaign. The warrant requests also mention George Papadopoulos as being a target of the infamous Peter Strzok – the FBI guy who wanted an “insurance policy” against Trump being president. No connection between Papadopoulos and Page was made in the requests, though both are mentioned.
According to the memo, the sole reason for the warrant request was the now infamous “Steele dossier” that claimed Trump liked Russian watersports. Here’s the rub: The dossier was a compilation of lies bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign using opposition research firm Fusion GPS. The DOJ and FBI paid ex-foreign spy Christopher Steele, who had been paid by the DNC as well, for the dossier. At the same time, Fusion GPS provided YahooNews with the dossier, and YahooNews printed a story based on it. James Comey and company then took the YahooNews story and the Fusion GPS/Steele dossier to the FISA court as the basis for warrants to spy on the Trump campaign all the way into the White House and beyond. They may still be doing it.
It gets even nastier when you start really digging into it. Bruce Ohr, Associate Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Justice, was feeding the Steele dossier to the FBI, while not disclosing that his wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS. Everyone involved knew that this was all garbage, yet they pumped it to the FISA court and beyond in order to derail Trump’s chances in the election, and when that failed, they continued to use the dossier to subvert and overturn the Trump presidency. In the larger context, when you take Peter Strzok’s (remember: he was the lead FBI agent in charge of investigating Clinton, investigating Michael Flynn, and investigating “Russian collusion”) text messages to his lover, another member of the Russia investigation, it points to the DOJ and FBI conspiring to let Clinton off the hook and railroad Trump.
What the memo means is that members of the Establishment DeepState used false information, planted news stories, and Clinton-funded opposition research to spy on Donald Trump before and after being elected. In other words, Trump has been right all along. Ask yourself, who and what else? How many American citizens were illegally spied on by Obama’s FBI and DOJ? What other corrupt activities did they undertake in an effort to throw an election? And perhaps most importantly……why is Robert Mueller investigating “Russian collusion”? This is just the beginning of what we’re going to uncover, as the rancid fruit from this poisonous tree is rotting all over the place, and it stinks. Put all of this into the context of everything else that’s gone on in the last 2 years……Obama judges blocking orders, Obama DOJ officials refusing to follow orders, Obama-worshipping Media printing and reporting never-ending fake news ( Operation Mockingbird ), and on and on and on. Connect the dots…….our bureaucratic Establishment and the Obama administration, arm in arm with the DNC and Hillary Clinton, worked – and are still working – in concert to overthrow the will of the people and abuse their civil rights.
In truth, even if you despise Trump, the revelation of this memo certainly shows that – at the highest levels – federal law enforcement has been weaponized and made grossly partisan. Would you want to be under investigation from this crooked DOJ and FBI? Would you have looked the other way if it was Bush’s DOJ and FBI doing this exact same thing to Obama in 2007 and 2008? As Americans we must ensure that we can trust our law enforcement institutions, and I don’t…….do you?

I have yet to have heard a reason why the
FISA memo was classified to begin with; it never threatened national security, and did
not disclose any processes or procedures.
WHY WAS IT CLASSIFIED!????
In my opinion, of course, it was classified simply for the reason to “keep it secret, keep it safe”. The same folks responsible for the conspiracy also classified the conspiracy. This is the result of 8 years, and more, of transforming this country into something akin to being the bad guys in a Rambo movie.
I agree! I don’t think there was any other reason to have classified it. Which prompts the question, who was responsible for assigning a classification to it? Was it an individual or the Intellgecy Committee?
Comey. Sadly, the Bush’s are as complicit as Obama. Crimes upon crimes are being desperately covered. Same people, same policy. Trust me, I hate saying that, as I voted for “W”…and in the furor over 9/11 I supported the Patriot Act. Experience and history, and most importantly mistakes, have informed my opinions. The globalist Bush’s seeded the path for Obama, and the fix was in for Hillary. I still think that when history is written, not by our peers but by generations in the future, there will be a vast conspiracy of CIA/globalist concerns exposed and acknowledged. Who put Comey in place? Who put the judges in place that are obstructing? Following the “why” can lead down some dark holes, my friend. I appreciate your readership…..and that you took the time to comment. Thank you.
