The House Intel panel’s passage of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s motion to release the FISA abuse memo to fellow House members has rocked Washington, D.C.
Lawmakers from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) have called for the classified memo’s immediate release. According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe once and for all.

Take it to the bank, the FBI/FISA docs are devastating for the Dems. The whole image of a benevolent Barack Obama they’ve disingenuously tried to portray is about to be destroyed. The real Obama, the vengeful narcissist, is going to be exposed for all to see.
I would not be surprised.
Over the years the Obama Administration and Democrats used or defended the use of any number of Federal agencies as political weapons. Businesses were raided. The IRS was used to infringe on first amendment protections of speech and association. We know Obama’s intel agents spied on everyone from our allies to the AP, to you and I, and the Trump campaign. The Democrats even used their own internal party agencies to rob Bernie Sanders of a legitimate shot at the presidential nomination. So any suggestion of impropriety is more than worth considering.
But will the message of abuse by the DOJ and FBI by a Democrat Administration be heard over the media din raised to hide it?
Will it motivate Congress to reconisder how their authorization foments such abuse?
Would Democrats consider the consequences of such abuse in the hands of someone like their version of Mr. Trump? Would it inspire any desire to curb those powers?
Will anyone get indicted?
