President Trump broke with top officials at the Justice Department and called for the release of a classified memo purported to list Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses by the U.S. government, The Washington Post reported Saturday.

Maybe we'll get to see whats in the memo sooner than later.

Would love to see some of these treasonous losers hang.

Too many people already know about it. Its release can no longer be undone. But they are trying really hard. They tried to get Facebook and Twitter to shutdown the #releasethememo hashtag. They tried to tell people its release endangers national security. Journalists have only been permitted to talk about it in "Opinion" pieces (WSJ, NYPost). But it will be released because Trump wants it released.

I don't trust those news sources for a second, but if true I would have to believe he has already seen it himself and knows the implications. If he really did call for release then I would also imagine it has some serious consequences.

Yep you are right the DOJ doesn't want it released because it might contain classified material.

So apparently misconduct by the FBI and DOJ is classified.

It is much like letting a murderer be the judge at his own trail.

I edited my post since I cant prove it with certainty, even though some journalists reporting it have gone silent recently.

I still maintain Trump knew about this way last year, right before Obeyme went on his "vacation" all by himself. Remember the pic of Obama in the waves which was meant to show what a great time he was having?

I still think he was in hiding until he realized Trump wasn't going to do anything.

Only those with something to hide could possibly be against its release.

I know many dems lawmakers are pitching a fit, but that's just Trump hate.

This should not be a partisan issue. The only way to protect our American freedoms is with transparency. If the DOJ/FBI are surveiling US citizens without proper cause, may they rot in prison. The patriot act is already going too far IMO. If they are going past those boundaries, fry em.

What a bummer and the hardcore anti-trumpers were hoping he would not release it because it is full of lies. Oops. The MSM is heading into full meltdown mode. Next week will be so comfy.

Smh.

Without releasing the source material (which gives context) the memo is simply a cherry-picked false narrative with a specific agenda (by increasingly desperate people), similar to a college student picking passages to argue an obscure point in a paper.

Without seeing context, that's all it is.

Well, according to yourself, we can't know if what you just wrote is true. You haven't seen it or the source material, so how can you say it's a cherry-picked false narrative? You can't.

I just did say that.

Release the source material not just the secret memo no one can see, otherwise it's a cherry-picked false narrative.

Period.

It is the DOJ that wont allow the source material to be released.

A bunch of Obama hold overs covering their butts.

You can call it cherry picked all you want, but it is the DOJ and FBI trying to cover their butts as to why the source material wont be released.

More corruption from the Obama administration!

Oh ya didn't you know its classified I covered that in an earlier post!

In the, ahem, interest of national security all evidence of our corruption has been classified and deemed Above Top Secret.
