The FBI has recently cornered President Donald Trump, saying that releasing the FISA memo presents “grave concerns.” Now, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has a brutal response to the bureau, proving that team Trump isn’t backing down.
According to The Gateway Pundit, Nunes sent a cutting response to the FBI after they tried to intimidate the White House into delaying the release of the FISA memo. So far, no blood has been shed because we, as a civilized society, will try to use the power of the pen to wage war. But, after Nunes burned the FBI with his response, who knows what they will do to keep the FISA memo from being released.
FBI.gov released the following statement on Wednesday, January 31, 2018, in regards to the FISA memo:
The FBI takes seriously its obligations to the FISA Court and its compliance with procedures overseen by career professionals in the Department of Justice and the FBI. We are committed to working with the appropriate oversight entities to ensure the continuing integrity of the FISA process.
With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it. As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.
What the FBI’s statement does not say is that it sent five executive agents to the White House to alter the memo, according to Fox News’ Lou Dobbs. The FBI does not want this information to come out, which is why they keep trying to convince President Trump to delay it. The logic here is that the FBI will buy themselves time to leak the contents of the memo and explain away or dismantle the accusations.
“Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies. The FBI is intimately familiar with ‘material omissions’ with respect to their presentations to both Congress and the courts, and they are welcome to make public, to the greatest extent possible, all the information they have on these abuses. Regardless, it’s clear that top officials used unverified information in a court document to fuel a counter-intelligence investigation during an American political campaign. Once the truth gets out, we can begin taking steps to ensure our intelligence agencies and courts are never misused like this again.”
I could not agree more with Devin Nunes. The FBI has done nothing but shun and dismiss nearly every request made for information and documents from the committee and its investigators. Now that the FBI is scared to death of the blowback from the FISA memo’s release, they want to give the appearance of integrity and a cooperative nature. No thanks, America will take the memo.
We’ve been betrayed by the FBI and other government agencies at the behest of former President Barack Obama’s administration. Our intelligence agencies and our courts were politicized and weaponized by Obama and his people through careful placement of key players at the top. This truly was an attempt to hijack our government from within, and now, it’s time to fight.
Devin Nunes has been one of the only men in Washington, D.C., faithful to President Donald Trump since day one. He has suffered ridicule and sham ethics investigations for months on end because of his unwavering support for our President. Nunes deserves a tremendous amount of respect and gratitude from anyone who considers themselves an American patriot.
