The 2016 Presidential election showed the American people what the Democratic Party was all about, and with the leaked emails from WikiLeaks, the lengths the Democratic National Committee went to in an effort to ensure their candidate, Hillary Clinton, received the Democratic Party nomination. When liberals failed to place Hillary Clinton in the White House, the mainstream media, along with Democrats in Washington D.C. embarked on a path to paint President Trump as a candidate that colluded with Russian agents and subverted the democratic process. Now, the Russian collusion narrative coming from the left has been obliterated, and it seems the tide is turning against all those who have been conspiring against President Trump.
Yesterday, we reported on the lawsuit filed by President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, suing BuzzFeed and the DNC funded firm Fusion GPS for $100 million. Mr. Cohen who was a target of the DNC along with President Trump is claiming that both parties engaged in slander with the composition and eventual publication of the now proven fake dossier, funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Adding to the controversy, it is suspected that the Obama administration, and perhaps even President Obama himself used the FBI and DOJ for the purposes of attacking their political enemies, using the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) system to obtain illegal search warrants against President Trump and his associates. Now a memo is circulating amongst Congress, which may prove someone in the Obama administration, and perhaps even more than one person may have lied to illegally obtain a warrant to spy on President Trump.
Before we get to the memo, and the trending hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo, lets rewind back to why Congressional leaders are demanding that this memo, which is still classified, be released to the public.
Americans deserve to know the contents of the memo. Democrats & deep state govt officials are doing everything they can to protect those within the government who used their positions of influence to target those they disagree with politically. RELEASE THE MEMO! #ReleaseTheMemo

The public theory floating around Washington D.C. about the Obama administration’s suspected misuse of FISA and going after then-candidate Trump goes like this. Certain elements within the Obama administration allegedly attempted to get a search warrant on President Trump via an Article III in federal court and were denied the warrant because sufficient evidence did not exist. Then after Obama’s operatives failed in their initial attempt, they allegedly mislabeled their FISA request as “foreign agents”, but made the mistake of including Trump’s name, and were denied again. Finally, it is suspected that on their third attempt, Obama operatives allegedly submitted a third FISA request, but left out Trump’s name, and this final request for a FISA warrant was granted.
Yesterday Republicans in the House went on Twitter to demand that this memo they read be unclassified, using the trending hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo, alluding to the fact that the contents of the memo are extremely damning, and will obliterate whatever credibility is left of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said, after reading this classified memo, said it is a clear underhanded political hack job, saying in part, “If the American people knew what was happening if they saw the contents of this memo, a lot would become clear about the information that I’ve been talking about the last several months.” The only details to be released about this memo are that it involved the DOJ, the Obama FBI, and then-candidate Trump.
Rep. Matt Gaetz went on to state while he was on Fox Business network that, “I think that this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail. You don’t get to try to undermine our country, undermine our elections, and then simply get fired.” His comments definitely lend credence to the theory that elements within the Obama administration lied to FISA judges, and improperly obtained search warrants. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) also offered his thoughts on the memo after reading it and said, “I viewed the classified report from House Intel relating to the FBI, FISA abuses, the infamous Russian dossier, and so-called ‘Russian collusion.’ What I saw is absolutely shocking.”

If FISA warrants were obtained under false pretense, the criminal penalties are serious, but the damage to the FBI and the DOJ will leave a serious black eye on government agencies which are not supposed to be politicized.
Lee Smith, of The Tablet, an online Jewish news outlet succinctly elaborates the ramifications the contents of this memo could set in motion. “For if the FBI and Department of Justice used a piece of opposition research paid for by a political campaign as evidence for a warrant to intercept the communications of a rival campaign—and the questions asked by congressional investigators suggest they did—then we are now living in a very different America than the one that generations of civil libertarians and small-government conservatives alike desired to maintain, and which large majorities in Congress have repeatedly voted for.”
Mr. Smith goes on to point out the obvious that the FBI and the DOJ will be in damage control for a long time, and will have to work very hard to gain the trust of conservative Americans’, many of whom already feel the DOJ and the FBI are still political pawns. “The DOJ, the FBI and perhaps the CIA would be embroiled in a scandal likely to have long-lasting and sweeping consequences for intelligence collection, national security, and the safety and privacy of American citizens, to say nothing of how it will demoralize federal law enforcement, which will appear to be mired in partisanship and political corruption.”
President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have not commented publicly on this memo or its contents, but it is a safe bet that both have already viewed the document, which may be the main source of President Trump’s confidence that this Russian collusion investigation will fall flat on its face.
