Here's Trump's Next Move On House Intel Democrats' FISA Memo

The House Intelligence Committee might have a wall before the border does

"The memo is about a process and what kinds of information should be used in order to allow the federal government to spy on Americans", said Hurd, a former covert CIA officer.

It reminded us that House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes is a bumbling Trump sycophant who already had to step away from the Russia investigation once and now should be relieved of his chairmanship.

If the White House refuses to release the Dem memo, now citing the recommendations of Rosenstein and Wray, it will reinforce the perception that the White House-released Nunes memo was nothing but a partisan political ploy.

Last week, President Trump made public a memo written by Republicans on the committee that detailed alleged surveillance abuses by the FBI and Justice Department in its probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The Republicans on the Intelligence Committee, which has attempted to augment the official investigation, released a controversial memo Friday that was put together with evidence collected in the committee's inquiry against the wishes of law enforcement agencies.

It won't. Mueller's investigation will continue, but because of Trump and his errand boy Nunes-who could be close to an obstruction charge- not only Trumpites but our allied nations will be highly suspicious of those institutions.

The so-called Steele dossier was compiled in an attempt to dig up dirt on Trump, partly funded by the campaign of his rival, Hillary Clinton. It does make you wonder what the FBI and DOJ are hiding. When it comes to protecting lives, including the lives and the programs behind our sources and methods, we each became fierce defenders, and we expect our elected representatives on the both congressional intelligence oversight committees to do the same. Much of the damage has been done.

The last time a member of Congress made a reckless and baseless attack on a revered pillar of America's security, it did not end well for him. Sen. The second phase is a review of "irregularities" at the State Department and the third will be interviewing "the cast of characters".

The House Intelligence Committee might have a wall before the border does

Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee voted unanimously Monday night to release the Democrats' memo - a 10-page, point-by-point rebuttal to the Nunes memo.

The sources said lawyer John Dowd, his deputy Jay Sekulow, long time personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz and many West Wing advisers want to resist the interview request, claiming Mueller lacks the legal standing on some of the issues he is investigating.

He said the White House was not leaning any way on the memo.

Democrats desperately tried to prevent the Nunes memo's release then mocked its contents when the suppression effort failed. Both Republicans and Democrats disputed that, and Democrats also bemoaned the release of formerly classified information and the possibility the precedent could compromise future investigations. "The more clarity we can provide to the American people about decisions at the FBI and Justice Department, the better".

Trump tweeted that Schiff is "one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington" and "must be stopped".

Steele has acknowledged speaking to reporters about the dossier in the weeks before the 2016 election. The FBI says the memo is rife with inaccuracies.

Specifically, the report claimed that authorities improperly used the explosive dossier by ex-British spy Christopher Steele to obtain surveillance warrants on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

If they had informed the Judge that the dossier was actually an opposition research document paid for by the opposing candidate and her party the Judge would have laughed them out of the court.
