FBI SAYS THEY HAVE “GRAVE CONCERNS” ABOUT RELEASING NUNES MEMO

“Release The Memo” has been the rallying cry for a majority of Republicans, Fox News Pundits, and many so called Conservatives over the past couple of weeks. The memo in question, is a memo reported to be drafted by staffers of Chairman Of The House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes (R) CA. Nunes and staffers reportedly found corrupt deeds and evidence of favoritism and the FBI along with evidence of a conspiracy to take down Donald Trump. The Nunes memo is not an official FBI document. The memo is a document drafted by Nunes’ staffers which accuse the FBI and other intel and law enforcement agencies of taking part in a cover up/conspiracy to keep Donald Trump out of the White House…..allegedly. I say allegedly because the memo has not been released to the public as of yet. The memo also allegedly says that the FBI’s investigation into Donald Trump and his campaign is illegal because of these facts. The memo has been what the pro-Trump faction has been using for their reason for wanting Robert Mueller fired, and somehow Hilary Clinton locked up. All of this, without anyone having read the memo yet….not even Devin Nunes himself, who admitted this much when tracked down by a reporter yesterday. If just the thought of a memo being out there causes this much commotion without it even have been read by anyone, can you imagine the effect the memo will have if it’s full of conspiracy theories and false accusations when people actually do have the opportunity to read it? Yeah, you can probably now see why the FBI is concerned with a conspiracy theory like this one being released to the public. Pro Trump people are using this memo as their version of The War Of The Worlds radio broadcast…..and no one has even read the memo yet, or has even stopped to take a second to realize that the memo is an opinion piece. An opinion piece drafted at the behest of a man who is likely under federal investigation by the same agency he is releasing conspiracy theories about.

 

 

 

NBC News (@nbcnews) reports, A memo by House Republicans about the Trump-Russia investigation is inaccurate and misleading, the FBI said in an un usual statement Wednesday, hours after President Donald Trump assured a lawmaker he planned to allow the document to become public.

 

 

 

“We have grave concerns about the material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.” the FBI said.

 

 

 

The memo supposedly details how a FISA warrant that led to Trump associate Carter Page was obtained under illegal circumstances. Page has reportedly been under FBI surveillance for years. Going back to a shady deal with a Russian spy who was arrested for attempting to buy American secrets. The memo argues that the reason the FISA warrant on Page was requested was based on information contained in a dossier created by a British spy and intelligence agent who was collecting evidence about Donald Trump and him possibly being framed by Russia. A dossier that Republicans claimed was funded by Democrats, but had that theory quickly shot down. The dossier was actually originally funded by Republicans looking for dirt on Donald Trump during the 2016 Republican primaries. The same Republicans that are pro-Trump and claim to be Trump’s biggest supporters and friends today. Those are the people who were looking for dirt on Trump in 2016. The dossier was nicknamed the Steele dossier after the British spy that drafted it, Christopher Steele. Republicans have argued that the Steele dossier is full of false and inaccurate information, even though the Steele dossier has never been found to contain any lies. There have been things in the dossier that Republicans could not find any evidence of, but there has yet to be anything in the dossier that has been proven to be an outright lie. Even the pee-pee tapes.

DEMOCRATIC SENATOR DIANNE FEINSTEIN DEFIES GOP AND RELEASES FULL TRANSCRIPT OF JUDICIARY COMMITTEE’S INTERVIEW WITH FUSION GPS CO-FOUNDER GLENN SIMPSON

Well it looks like someone in The Democratic Party has finally learned how to play “The Game Of Thrones.” Cersei Lannister once told Ned Stark “In The Game Of Thrones you play for keeps!” Ned Stark didn’t heed the warning. It’s one of the reasons he’s not alive anymore…..well not really. The Game Of Thrones is a fictional series with fictional characters and events, BUT, the Game that is being played by GOP members in the Senate and House is very real. Most Democrats don’t even seem aware that they are in the game. The game I speak of, is the game of “protect Trump by any means necessary”…even if those means require breaking the law. Republicans have been running through the halls of Congress breaking every law that was ever put in place by the founding fathers of this Country, in their Trump protecting agenda. Including, willingly looking the other way when it came to anything Trump-Russia related. Democrats seemed to be completely content by playing under the rules that were being changed and set by a corrupt GOP. You will never beat a cheater by attempting to play fair, no matter how hard you try. While you’re breaking your necks to win within the rules of the game, the cheater is breaking every rule and making winning very easily for himself. This is something that I don’t believe Democrats have figured out…..until now.

 

 

 

CNBC (@cnbn) reports, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Tuesday released the full transcript from Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

 

 

 

   “The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice. The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public.” Feinstein said in a statement.

 

 

 

The move follows a decision by Republicans Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham to issue a criminal referral last week against Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the Trump dossier.

 

 

 

In an op-ed for The New York Times on January 2nd, Simpson and Fusion GPS partner Peter Fritsch criticized Republicans for selectively leaking portions of Simpsons’ testimony.

 

 

 

“Republicans have refused to release full transcripts of our firm’s testimony, even as they selectively leak details to media outlets on the far right. It’s time to share what our company told investigators.”

 

 

 

Republicans have been tilting the game in their favor since they gained control of the Senate, House, and Presidency. They have been making rules up as they went along. Rules that have been set for years seemed to suddenly disappear. The reason for most of these rule changes were to accomplish one thing. Protect Donald Trump and his corrupt regime by any means. Everything the GOP has done since they gained control has been in an effort to move the “protect Trump” agenda forward. Even as Trump and clan clumsily break every law known to man, the GOP has been right there to protect them. There is no doubt that the selective leaking of passages from Fusion GPS’s co-founder were in an attempt to move the agenda forward. Two Republicans who were part of a bi-partisan investigation, got together and decided among themselves that criminal charges should be brought against the creator of the Trump Dossier, Christopher Steele. Their decision was based on selective leaked passages of testimony from Glenn Simpson. Dianne Feinstein has poked a whole in their corrupt plan. What do you think will be found when the complete transcripts are read by the public? “In The Game Of Thrones you play for keeps!” Good work Senator Feinstein, maybe you can pass some of that knowledge of how to play the game along to your Democratic colleagues.
