Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff: Can’t release ‘explosive’ FISA memo because people won’t understand it

Update: Full FISA Memo released!!!

Four days ago, on January 18, members of the House of Representatives were given a four-page memo, described by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)and journalist Sara Carter as so “shocking” and “explosive”, it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ), the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation, and even people going to jail.

The memo is rumored to detail the Obama Administration’s abuse of power in improperly ordering a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) wire-tapping of then-candidate Donald Trump, as well as the administration’s extensive and illegal collusion with the FBI, the DOJ and the Clinton Campaign against Donald Trump during and after the 2016 presidential election.

House members have been blocked from discussing the memo in detail due to a waiver they signed, according to The Hill. A day later, on January 19, 65 lawmakers signed a letter calling on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif) to publicly release the memo.

See “Tell Congress to release the ‘explosive’ FISA memo that’ll put officials in jail!

Congress must have been inundated with demands to #ReleaseTheMemo because on Saturday, January 20, Rep. Dave Joyce (R-Ohio) tweeted that the process to release the memo has begun, although it may take 19 or more Congressional work days.

However, yesterday, Jan. 21, in an interview on the Corrupt News Network (CNN), Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said the memo should not be released because the American people simply can’t understand it.

Schiff, 57, a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (House Intelligence Committee in short),  first dismisses the FISA memo as a set of “distorted” “talking points” that were “drafted” by Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee who are in collusion with “Russian trolls and bots”.

When asked by the CNN reporter why not let the American people see the memo and decide for ourselves, Schiff said no (1:18 mark):

“because the American people unfortunately don’t have the underlying materials and therefore they can’t see how distorted and misleading this document is.”

Then Schiff accuses Republicans who call for releasing the memo of engaging in “spin” and “a fulsome attack on the FBI” and on Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

  2. Let me be the judge of whether I can understand it. If it requires deeper insight because of “underlying material” release that too. And if shiffty is so stupid to think I’m stupid, then maybe he’s the one that can’t comprehend the memo. And to accuse the repubs of distortion is little more than seeing himself in the mirror.

    • YouKnowWho . . . Congratulations! You expressed everything that needed to be said. Isn’t it strange that all these dillweeds in Washington, DC trust you and I to keep paying the bills, but all of a sudden they think we are so brainless that we cannot understand. I have no doubt that this joker knows good and well that this memo is a smoking gun! In order to avoid the “smoking gun” from being inspected by the public, he wants to declare that you and I just would not understand. This man is a traitor to this country, and should be thrown out on his butt. I certainly do agree with . . . “And to accuse the repubs of distortion is little more than seeing himself in the mirror.” For all to long now, the Dems have controlled everything from the shadows, now is the time for the light of day to be shown on all their nefarious actions!

    • Ummm … he’s not calling anyone stupid. I’ve watched the clip a few times, and he clearly says that people won’t understand it because they won’t have the material that puts it in context. Context is everything, and if it was possible to be put out there, then I’m sure Schiff would allow it all to be released because it would make the Republicans look even more stupid than they are already.

      Get some objectivity, people. Democrats are trying to save your country, and the Republicans are TRAITORS!! (so is Trump) …

  4. It is precisely this arrogant condescension that makes a normal Joe want to punch this loser square in the nose!
    Adam Schiff, the “Schiff-head,” employs the same pseudo-intellectual look-down-your-nose condescension that former New York Governor Mario Cuomo used. It’s the same B.S. that CNN reporter Chris Cuomo uses.
    EXCUSE ME, “Schiff-head,” for your information, we are quite capable of figuring a large number of things for ourselves. Your days of intimidating us blue-collar working “slobs” are over. You just keep it up, Wise Guy: We’ll get you out of Congress NEXT.

    Here’s the history of it, in a nutshell. The genocidal maniac Bertrand Russell helped popularize a so-called philosophy called logical positivism back in the early 20th Century. Basically, its premise was this: You mention X. But we’re talking about something else, X-prime, therefor, you’re not on the same page we are! It was an arrogant, pseudo-intellectual way of putting those without a college education in their place.
    Think Abbott & Costello’s routine “Who’s On First?” “Who’s On First?” IS NOT “comedy”: It is logical positivism, designed to stop the inquiring and curious in their tracks.
    Well, we blue-collar working stiffs have something you DON’T, Schiff-head, and that is SELF-RESPECT.

  8. (((Adam Schiff))) must have never heard of the internet where people are able to learn/understand more details about ANY subject than any prior generation since the First Adam! We are not uneducated illiterate peasants from the “Dark Ages,” Mr. Snotty Arrogant Haughty Condescending boob!

    Schiff should try reading (((his))) Hebrew Scriptures once in awhile: “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” (Surely God had the internet in mind when He sent that message to Daniel!)

    On the flip side, we have a “one of us” type of guy in Rep. Dave Joyce whom you quoted; a former law enforcement officer & prosecutor before he began his stint in Congress in 2013. Here’s a four-minute Fox video from today, 1/22/18, with Dave Joyce re the Memo & the 5-months of missing text messages:

    What a two-faced, lying sack of sh*t, and he’s on the House Intelligence Committee, where you know he’s probably the major source of serious leaks.

        I can’t imagine what you are doing here. Read up on all the good things he has done then come back.
        Something to chew on FYI, three of the first people he hired was a black man, a gay and a woman. He put a Hispanic woman in charge of one of his largest construction projects ever. He bought Mar-aLago because it had been a closed club and he felt that wasn’t right. He put a black man in as his head butler that worked there for decades before he tired. The media tried to force him into trashing the President. but failed.
        He is working for free and donating every dime to a worthy cause every quarter. He has never been a traitor and loves our military, unlike the previous admin. You get the point, do some work before you trash our leader. And pay attention to your own country first.

  17. I agree with all of above. However, someone has to mention that grand juries can be convened right now. Trey Gowdy just told McCallum that it’s not his job to issue criminal referrals. That’s not what he said to a witness during a hearing. Where is Sessions? Where is Wray? Until I see indictments, this is all just kabuki theater dragged out as long as possible.

    Nunes, by writing this memo himself, has already affected redactions–and given the Democrats a means to reject it. To hell with the memo, release the evidence of the many crimes. Evidence of crimes is not Top Secret material.

  21. I am so tired of being called an idiot by the leftist elites. I dont do social media, never had facebook or twitter. I think if I did, I would be the first one arrested. Happy to note, I dont have any “smart appliances or amazon echo”, so I can say what I need to say at my monitor, without reprecussions!

    I do want to share..5 days ago when Scottevest CEO insulted FOX viewers, I did send an email to, espressing my disdain. I wont print what I said, cuz I used Scott Jordan’s colorful language, but here was my reply from the company…from Luke Lapalla..not more than 5 minutes after i hit send:

    “The recent offensive and inexcusable social media post by Scott Jordan does not reflect the views of ScotteVest. In 2017, Mr. Jordan stepped down from the management of ScotteVest and he is not involved in our daily operations.

    We are extremely sorry for his unacceptable comments. Mr. Jordan’s post was IMPULSIVE and inappropriate for too many reasons to list, and rightfully offended so many people.

    We strongly disagree with the views expressed by Scott Jordan.


    I truly think we need to mobilize as the left has done and send letters and emails to these idiots,…and watch them “grovel”, as evidenced by this response and then post these responses on social media pages!

    Social media…does inherently harness alot of power, good and bad!

    We need to use it for good and expose these satanic idiots!

  22. Thousands upon thousands of us who follow alternative news have literally known for many weeks the basic information and most of the traitors contained in the FISA memo. Well meaning conservatives won’t take the time to do their own research and think FOX News is the epitome of truthful conservative news. Saying that, thank God for Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, Judge Jeanine Pirro and Judge Napolitano. They are true patriots and continue to put their jobs on the line at FOX. All of the traitors, including the timeline of each criminal operation and how they are linked, have been discussed in detail by great patriots. Dr. Jerome Corsi, Roger Stone, Dr. Steve Pieczenik, Alex Jones and others have kept many of us on the edge of our seats as they revealed information as they could from their own undisclosed government contacts. Once indictments begin to be handed out, then the tentacles of corruption will link to Uranium One, Fusion GPS, The Clinton Foundation, the destabilization of the Middle East by creating Al Qaeda and ISIS and arming and abetting them, arming North Korea with nuclear capabilities, human trafficking, pedophilia rings, etc. Some say there are around 30 people at the top of the DOJ and the FBI that are involved including obummer, the Clinton’s and others.

    I’m NOT saying these men have read the FISA memo. I AM saying I’ll be surprised when we do learn of the contents there will be little in it we don’t already know. Releasing the memo quickly so the MSM will be forced to publicly address it is vital. The uninformed leftist population have to be exposed to the memo contents. It’s going to be interesting to see how they react. Maybe we’ll get to see their heads explode.

    The FBI stated today they have misplaced or lost 5 months of text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Sessions said there are more than 50,000 text messages from those two and other FBI players that are missing. This is clearly an FBI cover-up. It must make Schiff and the rest of the traitors very happy but, it will be short lived. The FBI is blaming Samsung! Now, that’s a really bad joke.

    Call your representative to demand the memo be released immediately!!…..NO to 17 work days!
