Realize what you're seeing here: Nunes' #FisaAbuseMemo is compilation of facts established by official DOJ/FBI documents he's viewed.

To view these memos, Nunes had to go in to a SCIF - Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility.
That's because a lot of this information he's viewing in these official DOJ/FBI documents contain classified information.

Remember the FISA warrants? Those are granted in intelligence operations to SPY on agents working for foreign powers.
ANYTHING having to do with an intelligence operation involving surveillance of suspected foreign agents is by it's nature classified.
The problem here is, Nunes is claiming from what he's read in these DOJ/FBI documents, there was EXTENSIVE ABUSE of the intelligence apparatus to spy on Trump campaign/transition team members without any foreign connection being involved.
In fact, from what's come out thus far, it's HIGHLY LIKELY the documents show the DOJ/FBI officials who engineered these FISA warrants knew the allegations in the #SteeleDossier were fake, or at least unverified.
It's called the #FisaAbuseMemo for a reason.

It's beginning to look like DOJ officials deliberately misrepresented the #SteeleDossier or other evidence to the FISA court to get the surveillance of Trump's team that they wanted.
The FBI *ALREADY KNOWS* what's in Nunes' memo. They HAVE the documents in their possession that Nunes' memo is based on.

Nunes & others have been allowed to SEE the documents, but the FBI will not surrender the documents to Congress.
So this DNC Media narrative the past 3 days about the FBI loudly whining over Nunes not letting them see his memo is absurd.


They've been stonewalling Congress for months.
Here's another fun fact: Nunes is NOT the only one who's seen these documents.

DOJ IG Michael Horowitz has seen them too. He, like Nunes, knows what went on inside the FBI in 2016.
The DOJ/FBI is a culture that is in SHOCK. 1/2 the people there are trying to hide the ball while the other 1/2 are investigating them for trying to hide the ball.

There is a CIVIL WAR underway inside that agency, and there has been for some time.
Remember, none of this stuff about the #SteeleDossier being funded by HRC/DNC came out until October.

Horowitz's investigation didn't surface until early December.
A lot more revelations are coming. You are watching desperate people who've had the light turned on trying to turn it back off.

As I've been saying for months: it's too late.

It was too late MONTHS ago.
They're freaking out over Nunes' #FisaAbuseMemo? Ha!

Wait until they see what's in Horowitz's final report when he releases it.

Good luck trying to block THAT.

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
