There has been a lot in the news about the now famous or infamous depending on your beliefs and I would like to give my opinion…..
In my younger years I was a member of the US Army CIC counter intelligence……only an idiot would see this as a good thing.
It is about what a single individual wants and not anything about the FISA warrant process.
The saga over whether the White House will or won’t release “the memo” may be over on Friday. Multiple reports—including at Fox News, ABC News, and the Washington Post—say President Trump has read the document and is set to release it. The White House, however, has agreed to make some redactions at the request of the FBI, which strongly came out against the release on Wednesday. Fox describes them as “technical edits,” but it seems the gist of the memo—asserting that the FBI and Justice Department abused their authority in the early stages of the Trump-Russia investigation—would stay intact. The only big question, then, is when the public would be able to read the memo.
ABC lays out the steps: After the White House informs the House Intelligence Committee that it doesn’t object to the memo’s release, the panel would then enter it into the Congressional Record. That step can only take place when the House is in session, which ABC notes would be the case at 4:30pm Friday. Failing that, the House would again be in session on Monday. One last wrinkle: GOP Sen. John Thune on Thursday told reporters that the Senate Intelligence Committee must see the memo before it’s made public. “I think they have to take into consideration what the FBI is saying,” Thune said of House Republicans, referring to the agency’s concerns.
This situation will make the warrant process damn near impossible because our intel people will be afraid that anything they had to get the warrant would later come back as a political football……
Keep in mind that a FISA warrant is used to investigate and prevent a terrorist attack or protect the country from espionage…..so the next attack that could have been prevented and was not will be on the heads of these political pigs that had NO evidence of wrong doing did what they did to assist a single individual and not the country.
It will be released……
The White House on Friday declassified a partisan and bitterly disputed memo on the Russia investigation, clearing the way for House Republicans to release allegations of what they say is FBI misconduct, per the AP. The move came over the fierce objections of the FBI and Justice Department, which have said the document prepared by Republicans on the House intelligence committee is inaccurate and missing critical context. The memo alleges that the FBI abused US government surveillance powers in its investigation into Russian election interference. It wasn’t immediately clear when the House committee would release it.
Trump, who has called the investigation a “witch hunt,” has supported the release of the memo in the apparent hopes that it could help undermine the probe being led by special counsel Robert Mueller. The president, dogged by the unrelenting investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia, lashed out anew Friday at the FBI and Justice Department as politically biased against Republicans. “The top Leadership and Investigators of the FBI and the Justice Department have politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats and against Republicans – something which would have been unthinkable just a short time ago. Rank & File are great people!” Trump tweeted.
This is a fools errand that does NOTHING to protect this country from anything….tying the hands of our intel people……remember if there is an attack how we got there and who made it possible.
Trump has pissed up our process and he did it to save his ass….has nothing to do with protecting the country.
But hey…read the memo and try to work it out for yourself…..
Or you could spend the day believing those scheming toads on FOX…..
