The memo written by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has finally been released. President Trump declassified the memo, which shortly thereafter was released to the public by the House of Representatives. As expected, its contents are shocking.
The memo confirms that the Obama Justice Department, including the FBI, used a fictitious dossier, the production of which was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee, to get a surveillance warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. We now know that the phony dossier was the primary piece of evidence which Obama Administration officials presented to the FISA court. We also learned that the Obama officials never told the judge that the dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton, that it’s author was a rabid anti-Trump partisan, or that the allegations contained in the memo were uncorroborated.
What this means is that the Obama Administration lied to a federal judge in order to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. This is a political/legal scandal of the highest order.
Keep in mind, this memo is merely a summary. It contains no source material. There is much we still need to find out. While this memo provides many important answers, it also raises many more questions. Serious questions which must be investigated. It is time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to launch a full investigation. A grand jury must be convened. Documents must be gathered. Witnesses must be subpoenaed and made to testify under oath. If crimes were committed, people must be indicted. They must be squeezed to give up what they know. What took place within the Obama Administration during the 2016 election and beyond was a conspiracy against the Trump campaign and the American People. We must discover its full scope and punish everyone responsible.
Just hours after the release of the memo, I appeared on radio with Ed Martin to discuss it. Click the link below to listen. I appeared in Part 2 of the Friday February 2 episode. My segment starts just over half-way through.
