    "One of the gravest and most damaging abuses of state power is to misuse surveillance authorities for political purposes. For that reason, the Intercept, from its inception, has focused extensively on these issues.

    We therefore regard as inherently serious strident warnings from public officials alleging that the FBI and DOJ have abused their spying power for political purposes. Social media last night and today have been flooded with inflammatory and quite dramatic claims now being made by congressional Republicans about a four page memo alleging abuses of FISA spying processes during the 2016 election. This memo, which remains secret, was reportedly written under the direction of the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, GOP Rep. Devin Nunes, and has been read by dozens of members of Congress after the committee voted to make the memo available to all members of the House of Representatives to examine in a room specially designated for reviewing classified material.

    The rhetoric issuing from GOP members who read the memo.".. - Source

    This should be interesting. Apparently, the republicans are in possession of a four page document about the FBI and the DOJ, under the Obama administration, conducting illegal activities tied to trump. At this point however, they refuse to make it public.

    To be honest, I'd like to see it too. As I have no love for trump, I also have no love for Obama. He could be guilty. I like facts, not rumors or gossip. One way or another, the public has a right to know.

    If the Memo exists- I would love to see it too- even if it does show that Obama did something illegal- I note this paragraph from your article

    On the other hand, if the GOP’s claims are false or significantly misleading – if they are, with the deepest cynicism imaginable, simply using these crucial issues to whip up their base or discredit the Mueller investigation, or exaggerating or making claims that lack any evidentiary support, or trying to have the best of all worlds by making explosive claims about the memo but never having to prove their truth — then they will either not release the memo or they will release it without any supporting documentation, making it impossible for Americans to judge its accuracy for themselves.

    If what is contained in the memo is so damning why don't they just tell us what it says? :dunno:

    How about Democrats allow the release of the memo, and Republicans allow Mueller to continue his investigation? Then we'll see which side is more corrupt. Of course we all know that will never happen because they're all criminals.

    Until the memo is released, personally, I'm not going to argue speculation. I'm NOT going to believe in innuendo or some congressman's word. In Wisconsin, we use a phrase; "If you got em, smoke em." Produce the evidence.

    Never fear, it is coming, and quickly.

    Why delay you say?

    Because of politics!

    Ever hear of the State of The Union address-) Now if you had people by the gonads, wouldn't you want to talk about it to the largest national audience of the year!

    And as far as you don't like Trump. OK, I can accept that, as long as you do not like his policies. People have differing opinions on how to do things, and everyone should accept that. If you don't like him because of his personality, everyone should accept that too. Nobody likes everybody, and that is fine.

    BUT, if you don't like him because of what you have been told about the collusion/delusion, or because you think he might be a traitor, or crazy, disengaged, doesn't know what he is doing, etc. Then maybe you better pay attention, because what you are going to find out is-------->this whole thing was designed by the Obama/Hillary election campaign, just in case, under the very slight chance he won. They believed the polls also, so they didn't cover it up. Hilly was suppose to do that since she would be President and control the FBI, and DOJ, who were in on it. Why do you think the Democrats went into such a rage!

    Now, there are going to be at least 2 lefties; and probably more, who are going to rate this post as funny. That's ok, I can take it, especially when I know that very shortly, I will be chasing them around this board; if they dare to come on, and LOL the hell out of them-)

    But truth be told, this isn't a gotcha moment my friend. DEMOCRATS are different people than FAR LEFT LIBERALS. Every American, from BOTH political entities, will be SHOCKED about what they are going to find out, I can promise that. People are going to get fired, people are going to get prosecuted, and more than likely, the Obama legacy is going to be destroyed. They may not get Obama himself, but the people high up in the food chain that worked for him, have long road ahead.

    And how do we SURMISE the accusations are true, and more than plausible?

    Because every Democrat on the committee voted to NOT release it to congress. Every Republican did.

    Now, every Republican wants it released to the public, and as far as I know, every Democrat does NOT!

    What does that tell you as a logical person!

    Do you know how this all collapsed on the Democrats; or actually, the far left liberals?

    Because of a timeline, that is what got congress sniffing, seriously. And what is even more hysterical is------->it was HILLARY CLINTONS tweet! She blew the whole thing up. You would have to see the timeline, and you can research it if you want to know, but her mouth screwed the pooch on the whole deal, lol! The most supposedly BRILLIANT woman in America, just screwed the Democrats for 2018 and beyond. You gotta love it!

    Your guy is going to get REMOVED. He was in on it. Comey is going to be prosecuted, and your special counsel will be lucky if he isn't!
