Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. – Ronald Reagan

The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday released a 51-page unclassified transcript of the contentious meeting this week between Republicans and Democrats, during which members voted to publicly release the classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.
The transcript shows Democrats strongly objecting to the release, accusing Republicans of producing the memo to benefit President Donald Trump.
The motion to release the memo passed on a party-line basis. On Tuesday night, Trump, who has the ability to stop the memo’s release, was overheard telling a GOP lawmaker at the State of the Union that he’s “100 percent” supportive of the document’s release — although it hasn’t happened yet.
“I want to begin by expressing my alarm at where we are in this committee,” California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the panel, said in the meeting. “I have served on the committee for 10 years now. This is the first time we have sought to declassify highly sensitive information for a political reason. It is, I think, a terrible line to cross.”
The transcript release followed the FBI saying Wednesday that the bureau had “grave concerns” about releasing the classified memo.
“With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it,” said the FBI statement. “As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”
Five career officials from the FBI came to see White House Chief of Staff John Kelly late Tuesday afternoon to view an amended version of the memo — the product of a review by the White House, according to a senior administration official.
Fox News also has learned FBI Director Christopher Wray had 90 minutes with the four-page memo during his rare Sunday trip to Capitol Hill where he was joined by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.
“Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies,” Nunes said Wednesday.
According to the transcript of the fractious meeting, Democratic Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois pressed Nunes on whether he had coordinated with the White House in crafting the memo for the public to see.
“When you, as the majority, conceived of doing this memo for release to the body and to the public, the preparation, the thought of doing it, the consultation of it, was any of this done after/during conversations or consultations with anyone in the White House?” Quigley asked.
Nunes replied, “I would just answer, as far as I know, no.”
The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to accounts of 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.
During Monday’s meeting, the GOP-majority committee voted against releasing a countering memo written by Democrats.
Of course the FBI does not want it to be made public today.
It will expose the FBI Hierarchy’s abuse of their positions and their attempt to interfere with the 2016 Presidential Election and the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.
The Democratic Elite do not want it to be released either…for the same reasons.
As Rush Limbaugh said on his program on Tuesday…
It’s not a memo. It is a four-page report. It’s a summary of what the House Intelligence Committee has learned in its investigation of Trump colluding with Russia. Trey Gowdy, in numerous TV appearances yesterday and today has told us what’s in this memo. We’ve also learned that there’s some additional things like Rod Rosenstein may be prominently featured in this memo. You know why? And this is fascinating.
I’m getting a little bit ahead of the game here. Folks, it’s just a summary. Essentially, it’s the Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee getting sick and tired of waiting because there hasn’t been any evidence produced whatsoever on the original claim. It’s been over a year. There’s no sign the special counsel’s winding down at all, and so the Republicans, “Well, let me tell you why they haven’t found anything,” and they’re gonna lay out the evidence of how this whole thing is tainted.
That’s the purpose of it. That’s why the Democrats are panicked. And so Pencil Neck Adam Schiff has decided to write his own memo to refute the “Dennis” Nunes memo. Devin Nunes, I know. I just can’t help mocking Pelosi, folks. I’m sorry. Now, the Democrats are panicked because the Nunes memo is going to tell everybody in America who has exposure to it what you and I already know.
See, folks, we live in a bifurcated culture, and the people that read the New York Times do not know who Fusion GPS is. The people that read the New York Times and watch CNN do not know that Hillary Clinton paid for the Trump dossier to be written. They don’t know this because that hasn’t been reported.
The Democrat side of things has been able to bottle up everything you and I know about what could be called malfeasance, partisanship, and any other number of things that you would define as attacks on Trump and attempts to ruin his presidency, before that to ruin his campaign, and then after that, to try to ruin his transition.
…The Democrats have grand designs of winning back the House and even the Senate this year and then impeaching and convicting Donald Trump. And the memo that is about to be released is going to put a big dent in those plans.
As I have stated before, what has been playing out since being set in motion by the previous Presidential Administration, is nothing less than, as Radio Host Mark Levin has referred to it, a “silent coup”…a way to usurp our Constitution and the System of Checks and Balances which our Founding Fathers put in place to maintain and prosper our Constitutional Republic.
The last two years have seemed surreal to me.
The lengths which the Democrats and their Financial Backer, the Puppet Master himself, George Soros, have gone to in order to try to keep Trump from winning the Presidency and then, to keep him from “Making America Great Again” through civil violence, lies, innuendos, threats, and even Twitter Bots, has been something that I have never seen before in my 59 years.
And now, today, we are going to be exposed to information that those who have been charged to protect American Citizens, instead, attempted to “frame” a private citizen who beat a bunch of Professional Politicians to win the 2016 Presidential Election.
The Deep State Operatives, like the Democrats themselves who sat on their hands during the State of the Union Address, have been blinded by their hatred for Trump to the point where his defeat and banishment from the Oval Office means more to them than love of country and the welfare of the American Citizenry.
Also, as I have written before, I am quite aware that J. Edgar Hoover had files on politicians and celebrities, which he used as “leverage” to keep his job and to hide his kinky proclivities.
But even J. Edgar Hoover never took his vendettas this far.
This whole bloody mess is a result of a Democratic Administration and the zealots in the FBI and other Alphabet Agencies, who became Deep State Operatives in defense of the Washingtonian Status Quo which they had become an integral part of under the Obama Administration.
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely” and these individuals who had obtained levels of importance within the Federal Government took it upon themselves to choose whom they thought would be the best choice for the next president of the United States, and it wasn’t Donald J. Trump.
They did not care whom Average Americans living in America’s Heartland wanted….simply because they “knew what was best for us”.
If, as a Sovereign Nation, we are to rid ourselves of the Machiavellian plans and schemes of a political ideology which seeks to overrule the will of the people through the use of Machiavellian schemes and plans acted on by Deep State Operatives within our own government, ALL PERTINENT INFORMATION MUST BE MADE PUBLIC.
Today , if things go as expected with be a Historically important day in the life of our country.
Today will not be a “political” day.
It will be a day for TRUTH.
It will be the day when American turns the light on the cockroaches infesting the dark, dank cellars of our Federal Government…and we watch them run for cover.
Until He Comes,
