    House Intel votes to release FISA memo...

    This should be interesting, though I'm not sure why the Dems are so upset...

    The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.

    The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said.

    President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.

    Well it seems like Devin Nunes has gone all-in on trying to obstruct the Mueller investigation, so has written this 'memo' that's full of half-baked things designed to side-track the gullible down a half-dozen conspiracy theory paths and thus provide as much cover for Trump as possible.

    The Republican base will love it because they'll get a half-dozen new conspiracy theories to naively buy into. The time the media will have to spend debunking it will take away from the time they can spend paying attention to things like Trump firing FBI deputy-director Andrew McCabe today, and (soon likely) firing deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, as part of the Trump administration clumsily working toward their ongoing goal of sinking the Mueller investigation before it hits.

    Trump did not fire McCabe, McCabe was in the memo and fired by his boss. And how do you know there are half-baked things in the memo? That just sounds like liberal spin. If falsehoods were used to get a FISA warrant to surveil Carter Page or the Trump campaign those are felonies worthy of Nixon.

    democrat memo is undergoing same procedure GOP memo did. For now they're releasing it to the house so everybody can read it first, just like they did with the gop memo

    Well, in order for Trump to undermine democratic institutions and become the autocrat he aspires to be, he's going to need the help of the republican party. That's what you're witnessing right now. Hope you're enjoying it.

    What I'm really enjoying is....

    A) Hillary is not POTUS
    2) SCOTUS is not Hillary's
    C) It's driving the liberals absolutely nuts

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Yes, we understand, you couldn't care less about democracy so long as Hillary is not POTUS and your Dictator promises you a right wing Justice.

    A totally ignorant and false statement.

    so long as Hillary is not POTUS and your Dictator promises you a right wing Justice.
    Well, she's not, and the so called "Dictator" promised a conservative justice, and kept his promise.

    It was first reported that McCabe had stepped down. Later it was revealed that he had been fired by the FBI. There must be something pretty damning in the memo for the FBI to take that sort of action.
