If you have been on Twitter, then you know #ReleaseTheMemo is trending like crazy. Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has made a motion to expose Obama and release the FISA abuse to fellow House members. The memo was viewed by Republican lawmakers on Thursday and those who were able to view it described it as "shocking" and "explosive."

Sara Carter, a Fox News contributor and national security journalist, reported on Thursday that the memo shows, “extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse.”

The memo is loaded with information on not only the infamous Trump-Russia Dossier, but also the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Sources close to the situation told Carter, “they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.”

An unnamed congressional member told Carter, “(w)e probably will get this stuff released by the end of the month.”

More on the reactions per The Daily Caller:

A number of other Republican lawmakers sounded off about the contents of the classified intelligence memo.

Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry told Fox News, “You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is.”

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz said, “I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice.”

Gaetz also issued a statement on his congressional website Thursday calling for the document to be released to the public, writing, “The House must immediately make public the memo prepared by the Intelligence Committee regarding the FBI and the Department of Justice. The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy.”

North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows told Fox News, “It’s troubling. It is shocking. Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”
