Let's be clear here: there's no way Dems can block the release of this memo.

Too many people have seen & are talking about how bad it is. Not Russian bots. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.
Dems & DNC Media are about have it graphically proven to them YET AGAIN their narratives do not drive reality.

"But this is being driven by Russian bots! It's only talking points, a fantasy written by Devin Nunes!"

It'll be released ANYWAY.
All it will take is a single Trump tweet. And he's waiting to let the momentum build.

Then he's gonna call for declassification and for it to be released.

And it will happen.
As Trump himself mentioned today in his tweet about reauthorizing the FISA 702 program, he is WELL AWARE of abuses of the FISA surveillance system:

That's why President Trump made sure there were some very real changes to the new FISA 702 amendment before he reauthorized it.
And now for your reminder: there are TWO separate things at work here: DOJ IG Michael Horowitz's year-long investigation into political fixing/abuses inside the DOJ/FBI *and* Congresses investigation into the very same thing.
This putting together of a 4 page memo by Nunes follows IMMEDIATELY upon Horowitz's beginning to transfer to the Congressional committees 1.2 million documents collected during his investigation.

That transfer BEGAN on January 12th.
ANYTHING Congress is seeing NOW through Nune's 4 page #FisaAbuseMemo, *Horowitz* has known about for months and has been collecting & preparing a case about for months.
The Black Hats in the DOJ/FBI, Democrats in Congress desperate to keep this stuff hidden, their media allies frantic to cover for their fellow travelers.....are trapped in futility.

What have I told you for MONTHS?







Horowitz *already* built his case. He found all the evidence LONG AGO.

*Congress* has only started getting to SEE the evidence Horowitz compiled since around the middle of DECEMBER.
That's why we've spent the last 5 weeks having fun Congressional hearings with people like Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, James Baker & others being pulled in to testify.
Democrats inside the Congress can selectively leak stuff - as we saw with Feinstein releasing Simpson's redacted Senate testimony. There are SOME things they can do to delay, or spin stuff to help the Black Hats & Obama.
But THIS document is so bad there's literally no way they could spin it. That's why nothing from it has leaked yet.

But remember: Congressional drama right NOW doesn't change what HOROWITZ and SESSIONS is gonna do with this stuff.
As far as the *Congressional hearings and release of evidence now in Congresses' hands* go, yes Democrats can spin and delay and pull some shenanigans. But they can't stop it forever.
As far as Horowitz's final report & his recommendations to the Attorney General Jeff Sessions, what could Democrats do?

Well....nothing, really.
When Horowitz delivers his final report, he's going to recommend some people get indicted for crimes. Highly placed people who either are still inside the DOJ/FBI or have left it recently.
Congress has spent the last 40 or so days just CATCHING UP with stuff Horowitz has already finished investigating. This is what people need to remember.

Democrat & DNC Media drama about a memo in a Congressional SCIF right now is ultimately pointless.
Democrat obstruction & leaking and using their media allies to create confusion just means it'll take Congress a little longer to end up where Horowitz did. Referring people to Jeff Sessions for criminal prosecution.
BOTH are going to happen. Horowitz will make his referrals for indictments first. Then a few months later, Congress will finish it's own investigations and make their own referrals for criminal prosecution.
This is the real world. The wheels of justice grind slowly. Get used to it. Whine about how long it's taking all you want to. Won't change anything.

It took - get this! - almost exactly a YEAR from Trump's inauguration for things to get to this point.
People who were screaming for Hillary and Comey and whoever to be indicted months ago will still be screaming for them to be indicted tomorrow and loudly whining how unfair it hasn't happened yet.

I live in the real world, OK? I'm not like you.
I know what's coming. I know what's going to happen. It can't be stopped. But it will come at it's own time at it's own pace.

All the whining in the world won't change that.

A lesson I learned long ago and one I wish a lot of my followers would learn.
This won't conclude in a month or a even a year. It will take YEARS for all of this to unfold. Those that don't take plea deals will end up in long trials that'll be delayed for months, even years before they start.
So see the big picture. Today's endless whining by Democrats is pointless. They can't hide the evidence or suppress it for long.

They are making missteps now that will cost them big time in the midterms and in 2020.

Despite what you hear, there is no 'blue wave' coming.
We're in the last year in which Democrats will be able to do ANYTHING to stop or hinder Trump's agenda.

Or delay the coming of justice for crimes committed by Obama's administration.
They can't stop Horowitz or Sessions.

Soon they won't even be able to delay stuff in Congress, and hinder Nunes or Goodlatte or Grassley or Gowdy.

Watch for Trump's tweet. That'll set things in motion for the declassification of the memo & it's release.

You know how a jet fighter launches chaff to throw the enemy off the target?

I'm halfway convinced it was the **TRUMP TEAM ITSELF** in the White House sending out people to be anonymous sources spreading these "OMG Kushner is an IDIOT!" stories in the Fake News Media.
Trump is a master of information warfare.

If anybody started putting 2 and 2 together and snooping around what Kushner was up to, I can totally see the White House sending people out to anonymously seed the media with stories like...this:

All the anonymous sources were in agreement: this Kushner guy is just benefiting from having married Trump's daughter, he's in way WAY over his head, has got no clue what he's doing.

Hi @seanmdav.

For a guy who calls out the Fake News Media an awful lot, you sure seem to trust what they tell you when it suits you.

Somebody who **actually** listened to Wray's testimony **instead of** getting their "Cliff Notes" from the Fake News Media:

My friend @Shem_Infinite:

There is no excuse for this. You're getting your "hot take" on what Wray actually testified from a Huffpost Reporter?

Do better.

We already saw this movie.

Didn't we already see this movie?

I think we all already saw this movie.

The only thing **different** about how Comey won't answer the questions put to him by these Congressional commitees [other than the standard "I don't recall"] is he won't be saying:

"I can't comment on that because it's currently part of an ongoing federal investigation."
Instead Comey will be saying THIS:

"On the advice of my legal counsel, I invoke my Fifth amendment rights."


"My counsel has advised me not to discuss this, and so I won't."

To people endlessly asking me if President Trump is aware of and taking steps to combat this whole "Color Revolution" playbook:

Yes, he is aware of it.

Yes, he is taking steps to deal with it.

No, he's not going to tell you what they are.
The biggest assumption people make is because Trump hasn't **publicly rolled out** his strategy for dealing with this threat that is all over the media & we're all talking about it is because....he's blind to it.

Utter nonsense.

Trump does not reveal things until HE'S READY TO DO THAT.

And he will only do that when there's nothing the enemy can do to sabotage his efforts.

Look at what just happened YESTERDAY.

Yeah. Durham's wrapped.

That's why they are issuing the subpoenas now.

I've had to endlessly explain this for going on 2 years now:

While the investigation is ongoing, you wouldn't learn anything from subpoenaing these goons because they'd do what COMEY & STRZOK & Mueller & everybody else did when they testified before Congress.

How many times did you want to hear over and over

"I'm sorry I cannot answer that question because the matter is currently under investigation by the Dept. of Justice" or the dozen of variations to that?

Because THAT'S what you would have heard before now.

You know I'm right.

A whole lot of people get SpyGate stuff wrong because they don't know the timeline of the actual events.

So here's a handy reference you can use:

Given to what's coming, I want to draw your attention to THESE two events that occurred in early March, 2016. Image
THIS got memory-holed. But pay attention. There will be a quiz later. Image
