First Leak Of Fisa Memo Officially Names James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein

Former FBI Director James Comey, bureau Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein were all named in the first leak of the FISA memo, according to a report from the Daily Beast.

Per Daily Beast:

A controversial Republican memo alleging surveillance abuse specifically names FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein along with former FBI Director James Comey.

Capitol Hill sources on both sides of the aisle say the memo’s release is only a matter of time. And when it comes out, these current and former officials — all GOP bêtes noires — are likely to face even more criticism from the right over their involvement in FBI counterintelligence work.

Republicans, including Trump himself, have spent months attacking McCabe and Comey while special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating Team Trump’s connections to the Kremlin. Rosenstein put that probe in place—a move Trump has derided as a witch hunt. […]

Rep. Chris Collins, a New York Republican, told The Daily Beast that Nunes has told Republicans his staff spent months putting the memo together.

This report came while the Sessions Justice Department is calling for House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) to allow the memo to be read by the FBI so it can be ensured that this memo will not harm national security.

Per The Gateway Pundit:

While on the face on it, the Justice Department’s request is both logical and prudent. However, once in possession of the memo, which is likely to expose the role of top level FBI and Justice Department officials in using the Steele dossier to obtain FISA spy warrants, what do you think bureau officials will do? Wage a fierce PR campaign against it and the Republican lawmakers who demand the memo to be released.

The first leak is confirmation of what Republican lawmakers have been hinting to the press for over a week.

During an appearance on CNN‘s morning show “New Day” Friday, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) told host Chris Cuomo that the “essence” of the “shocking,” FISA abuse memo centers around whether or not the FBI and Justice Department provided false information to the FISA court for the purpose of obtaining spy warrants.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has hinted to Judge Jeanine Pirro that the memo outlines how the U.S. government may have committed fraud by presenting the courts with “false information,” to obtain FISA warrants.

“You’re aware as a Judge of the way evidence has to be authenticated and presented to a court to get a warrant,” said the Florida Republican.

“Of course, and prosecutors and investigators cannot perpetrate frauds on the court by presenting false information or information they know to be false,” Rep. Gaetz continued.

According to a report from Sara Carter, a Fox News contributor, this memo is so explosive that it could very well spell the end of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. She also claims that the contents of the memo could result in top Justice Department and FBI officials being prosecuted.

Meanwhile CNN and others are pretending that #ReleaseTheMemo is a conspiracy theory.

Others are fired up and ready to see what is in this memo.
