On Thursday, the House Intelligence Committee quietly voted to make available to fellow House members “a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program,” reports Fox News’ Chad Pergram.
With 435 House members, the likelihood of details from the memo leaking are high. And so are the stakes. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) voted against the motion after reviewing the memo last week. Is this why the leaks have all but dried up?
“Fox is told that while the Intel Cmte voted in favor of the Simpson transcript, Democrats blocked the release of other documents. The committee has also voted on a motion by Rep. Pete King (R-NY) to make available to all House members a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program,” tweeted Pergram.
Schiff and the rest of the House Intel Democrats saw the DOJ/FBI/FISA docs on the dossier over a week ago. The lack of any leaks plus their votes today to block release of that info suggest the documents are catastrophically bad for Dems

Davis then added, “Schiff and the rest of the House Intel Democrats saw the DOJ/FBI/FISA docs on the dossier over a week ago. The lack of any leaks plus their votes today to block release of that info suggest the documents are catastrophically bad for Dems.”
The ranking Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) said Monday that leaked testimony from the controversial opposition research firm was misleading the public and releasing the entire testimony would clear up the confusion.
FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein met with Sens. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Mark Warner, D-Va., NBC News reported Wednesday, citing a senate aide.
The FBI attempted to serve a subpoena to Steve Bannon’s home last week in order to compel him to testify before a grand jury in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, per NBC News. The FBI agents were then informed that Bannon had retained attorney Bill Burck earlier that day, delivering the subpoena to him.
A four-page memo circulating in Congress that reveals United States government surveillance abuses is being described by lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.
“I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice,” he said, referencing DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr.

If information/evidence was obtained ILLEGALLY( and it was) it can't be used in a court of law.
Trump haters screwed themselves.
Fruit of the poisonous tree.
They've handed Flynn and Manafort a get out of jail free card.
Which is WHY they are blocking other members from seeing those abuses.
