WashPost: Trump Wanted FISA Memo '#ReleaseThe Memo' Released, Unlike Justice Dept.


It's about time the American people seee the trechery of the FBI and how they operated under Barack Obama and protected Hillary Climton.

NewsMax reports President Donald Trump told top aides on Wednesday to release the House Intelligence Committee's memo alleging Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses by the FBI — putting him at odds with the Justice Department, The Washington Post reported Saturday.
President Trump "is inclined to have that released just because it will shed light," a senior administration official told the Post.
"Apparently, all the rumors are that it will shed light, it will help the investigators come to a conclusion," said the official, who was "speaking on the condition of anonymity to recount private conversations," the Post reported.
The FISA memo was produced by Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, the California Republican, and his staff.
The document centers on the FBI's use of a dossier on Trump and Russia by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, alleging that the FISA judge who signed off on the dossier was not given full information about it, including that Democratic sources later paid for it.
