‘Worse than Watergate’ — ‘Shocking’ memo allegedly reveals FISA abuse by senior FBI, DOJ officials

Sean Hannity told Robert Mueller: "Your witch hunt is now over."

On Thursday, members of the House of Representatives said they viewed a “shocking” classified memo that allegedly reveals abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by senior Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigations officials in relation to the investigation of the Trump campaign.

As a result, many are demanding the memo be released to the public.

“I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was & . ,” Rep Steve King, R-Iowa, said in a tweet.

Fox News said details in the four-page memo was compared to KGB activity in the former Soviet Union by one member of the House.

“It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.

“It’s troubling. It is shocking,” added Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., who added: “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.”

“I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice,” said Florida Republican Matt Gaetz, referring to Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr.

He also told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that some could go to jail over the actions detailed in the memo.

“I think that this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail,” he said.  “I think there will be criminal implications here.”

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

“While the report is classified as Top Secret, I believe the select committee should, pursuant to House rules, vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve the truth, Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., said in a tweet.

Of course, House Democrats voted against making the memo available for all members.

Fox News added:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told Fox News in December that his investigators have already uncovered evidence of abuse in the U.S. government’s surveillance practices.

“I believe there’s evidence that abuses have occurred,” Nunes said at the time.

Nunes pointed to the leaked conversation of former national security adviser, Gen. Mike Flynn with the Russian ambassador.

Breitbart further reported:

The memo also reportedly contains information about the dossier put together by Fusion GPS that alleged Trump and members of his team colluded with Russians in the 2016 election, according to a report by investigative journalist Sara Carter.

It was revealed in October that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Despite being a political document, the dossier was reportedly part of the evidence FBI officials used to apply for and obtain a warrant through a secret FISA court to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Page told Breitbart News in a statement: “After over a year of inciting discord and threats of violence across America, it’s encouraging that the individuals in Washington responsible for these efforts to undermine our great democracy may be held accountable soon.”
