What Would You Learn From the FISA Abuse Memo?
What is the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) memo everyone is talking about? It is similar to an executive summary of all of the thousands of texts, emails and other documents that the House Intelligence Committee has reviewed from what the FBI and the Department of Justice submitted concerning the investigation into the Hillary email scandal and the alleged Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government.
There are many people who are calling for the release of the memo to the public along with the supporting document. The Republicans want the memo released for transparency reasons the Democrats do not.
I am all for transparency no matter who is being accused, why the Democratic Party is not is up for you to decide.
If someone does not want this memo and the supporting documents released you have to ask yourself why. The answer just could be that they are afraid of what these documents will tell us all.
According to an interview on Fox News Sunday of South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, a member of that Intelligence Committee, he stated:
If you think your viewers want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used, whether or not it’s ever been vetted — if you are interested in who paid for the dossier, if you are interested in Christopher Steele’s relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, then, yes, you will want the memo to come out…Do you want to know that the Democratic National Committee paid for material that was never vetted, that was included in a court proceeding?
Should we the American people not be allowed to see exactly what the FBI and Department of Justice was doing, saying and acting upon concerning the investigations or not?
My thought is, of course we should.
