House Intel votes to release controversial surveillance memo to the public

January 30, 2018

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.

Last week, a top Justice Department official urged House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes not to release the memo, saying it would be “extraordinarily reckless” and could harm national security and ongoing investigations.

The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.

Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump “dossier” played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.

    Simple question to ask: If this had happened under the Bush administration, would they be objecting to the disclosure? Further, was not Obama the one who promised “full transparency” in government? You can’t have it both ways. If names have been unmasked illegally, those responsible should pay. If laws are broken, no meeting on a runway by your personal representative should exempt you from prosecution. Amazing how these same Democrats who have no problem repeating the lies of Porn stars and Democrat Congressmen who hear things no one else in the room hears to “resist” a sitting President, yet they refuse to allow the American people to find out their demi-God was possibly dirty. They revel a book that the author admits part of it is made up, yet they refuse to allow a memo that admittedly is true to be seen as it might let folks know how they conspired to restrict the smooth transition of power they demanded, or that the whole “Russian Collusion” lie was a smoke screen to hide their own criminal behavior.

    I think it is time to let the stink out. If the people we have sent to lead this great country are doing illegal acts against the people they have been sent to serve the people should here about it. The blame should be given to those who have done the deeds. If this has all happened under the DNC watch and this goes back up the pole to the leaders then the DNC should be dismantled and shut down. The people are discussed with the poor performance of the leadership of this country and it is about time the masks are taken off..

    Dennis McLain, ccblogging,
    I can only ad that I totally agree with both of your comments. The real “sad day in history” has been the past 40 or more years while the democrat party morphed into the good old Communist party only much more radical. Communism and a “free republic” form of government cannot co-exist.

    Adam Schiff, the reason you think it is a sad day is because of your party’s breaking the law and got caught! Oh how you cry the blues whenever your party is stuck in a quagmire of lawbreaking guilt. If your party would quit breaking the law and start working with the president to get this country back together again instead of trying to tear it apart then you would not be going through these crying spells Adm Schiff! Those guilty of subversion and illegal acts of spying should be tried for treason and if found guilty they should be executed like all treasonous vermin should be treated. Your party and the RINOS have shown their colors and the American people are fed up with you to the point of justice for the pain and aggravation you have cause the people of this country and continue to try to do so. How stupid is that? You are not winning anything in your party but a fast trip to jail finally!

    Our Deep State controlled government reeks with Corruption and Treason. Some of the FBI thugs and DOJ criminals should be escorted to their public hangings.
