It’s officially happening. The House Intel Committee voted to release the four-page memo that has information on how the Obama administration used the intelligence community as a political weapons. They were able to do this by using the FISA program to spy on the Trump campaign.
The memo will not be immediately released. It was put together by Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA). It has Democratic lawmakers furious because they claim it will undermine the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Per The Hill:
Some Republicans who have read the memo have hinted heavily that it contains information that could unravel the entire Mueller investigation, long described by the president as a “witch hunt.”
The precise contents of the memo remain unknown. However, it’s believed to contain allegations that the FBI did not adequately explain to a clandestine court that some of the information it used in a surveillance warrant application for Trump adviser Carter Page came from opposition research funded by the Clinton campaign, now known as the “Steele dossier.”
The document spotlights Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s role in approving the warrant application, according to the New York Times. Rosenstein appointed Mueller and has become a recent target on the right — as well as reportedly garnering the frustration of the president.
Well, the public demanded it and it’s finally happening. It’s not being released immediately but it’s officially coming.

Adam Schiff, the guy who keeps going on TV claiming he wants the truth about interference in the 2016 election, the guy who runs with any false claim involving Trump and Russia, is currently throwing a fit about the decision to #ReleaseTheMemo. Funny how that works. 🙄
