Barack Obama is undoubtedly in panic mode today as Republicans have warned that a shocking memo containing “jaw-dropping” revelations about U.S. government surveillance abuses will soon be made public.
Fox News reported that Republicans have suggested that the memo contains damning evidence the Obama administration used FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrants to spy on Donald Trump’s campaign as well as on his transition team before he was sworn in. Rep. Dave Joyce, a Republican from Ohio, warned that when the American people see the document, they will “be surprised how bad it is.”
The memo will likely be released mid-March, as the process around releasing it requires up to 19 congressional working days. In order for the document to be released, it would need to be approved by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who can decide to bring the committee back together for a vote. If the majority of the committee decides it should be released, President Trump will have the final say on whether it is made public.
Joyce said he has already read the memo twice, and “it was deeply disturbing as anyone who’s been in law enforcement and any American will find out once they have the opportunity to review it.”
Democrats are already trying to downplay the memo as a last-ditch attempt by conservatives to discredit the Russia investigation and cast doubt on the people who are running it. California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said the memo is “a profoundly misleading set of talking points drafted by Republican staff attacking the FBI and its handling of the investigation.” He went on to say that it is riddled with factual inaccuracies and said it gives a “distorted view of the FBI.”
Joyce went so far as to say that the memo is so bad that “termination would be the least of these people’s worries” and suggested that some of the people involved might even be “prosecuted.”
North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows added that the memo is both “shocking” and “troubling.”
“Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much,” he said.
“You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is,” stated Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania.
We can only hope that there is finally enough evidence in this memo to put Obama behind bars. SHARE this story if you think Barack Obama should be in PRISON!
