About five minutes before 12 noon today, the House Intelligence Committee (HIC) released the notorious FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act ) memo.
Excerpts were posted by some websites before HIC released the FULL memo:
- The Obama Administration’s FBI and DOJ used the unverified and wholly fictitious Russian dossier to successfully obtain from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court surveillance warrants on Trump and members of his campaign team — which makes the surveillance UNLAWFUL and ILLEGAL.
Note: The Russian dossier, including the wholly fictitious “golden shower” account, was concocted by ex-MI6 spook Christopher Steele, who was hired by “opposition research” company Fusion GPS that, in turn, had been commissioned by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
- Senior law enforcement officials testified during a closed classified session to the HIC, that without the unsubstantiated and wholly-ficitious “Russian dossier” on then-candidate Donald Trump, they would not have been able to obtain at least one surveillance warrant for a member of the Trump campaign.
- The Obama Administration used Fusion GPS and Steele as part of an active campaign to
brieflie to major media outlets.
- Steele was no impartial researcher. In September 2016, Steele said to then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr that he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president.”
Update (March 8, 2019):
The embedded links to the FISA memo on the House Intelligence Committee now lead to a blank page, likely because Demonrats now control the House of Representatives and, as a consequence, Republicans no longer control the committee. Instead, the chair of the committee is Demonrat Adam Schiff (CA).
