Trump Administration Official: FISA Memo To Be Released Thursday
Four-page memo will expose massive abuse of surveillance powers by the FBI and DOJ
A Trump administration official has claimed on Wednesday that the infamous FISA memo which outlines the massive abuse of surveillance powers by the FBI and DOJ, is "likely to be released on Thursday" according to Reuters.
The four-page memo has already been circulating among the House and has already been seen by President Donald Trump and his chief of staff, John Kelly.
The President now has until Friday to decide whether the memo should remain classified.
The FBI released a desperate and "rare public statement" claiming the memo was "factually inaccurate" and had "grave concerns" about its release due to national security fears.
FBI Director Christopher Wray was reportedly "shocked to his core" after reading the four-page FISA memo Sunday night, just hours before ordering FBI Director Andrew McCabe to step down according to o journalist Sara Carter.
Donald Trump was caught on a hot mic promising a congressman that he will "100%" release the FISA memo that will expose the extreme deep state spying.
My latest: This is a concerted effort to buy time for FBI and DOJ to try and delegitimize the FISA abuse memo they are terrified will be made public #ReleaseTheMemo https://t.co/ppkbuIng3d— Sara A. Carter (@SaraCarterDC) February 1, 2018
Yesterday, a chartered train carrying dozens of GOP lawmakers, all of which were pushing for the FISA memo release, collided with a garbage truck south of Charlottesville.
Speculation that the crash was a deep state warning to the lawmakers is now been reported by Infowars.
According to Zerohedge: The news comes after the FBI yesterday issued a "rare public statement" condemning the memo as factually inaccurate, saying it had "grave concerns" about its release, which it said could be detrimental to national security.
Even Democrats, who initially said the memo was intended to challenge the Mueller probe are now admitting that its contents could be damning, and raise questions about the bureau's decision to wiretap Trump campaign aide Carter Page - evidence that was used to help justify the launch of the Trump investigation.
Adam Schiff, the top Dem on the House Intel Committee, reportedly said yesterday that it could lead the firings of Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and Special Counsel Mueller.
Earlier this week, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe announced his resignation, reportedly under pressure, as reports of an internal probe leaked. McCabe, along with Former FBI Director James Comey and Rosenstein are all reportedly named in the report.
Trump previously said this week that he was "100%" going to release the memo following a question from a Republican lawmaker following the State of the Union.
According to lawmakers who have reviewed the memo, it contains a discussion about the infamous dossier that was put together about then candidate Donald Trump by a British spy. Most of the claims in the scandalous dossier have not been verified. Most involve alleged ties to Russian entities.
As we reported earlier, the White House is still pondering whether to release the memo's supporting documents along with the memo.
