Pelosi tries to force House vote on Nunes memo

11 February 2018

The memo's arrival at the White House late Monday set in motion a five-day clock for the White House and key law enforcement and intelligence agencies to review the memo to determine whether it is appropriate to declassify the document. For example, Nunes does not state that the government surveilled Page only after he'd left the Trump campaign.

Adam Schiff, meet Adam Schiff, indeed.

While Nunes and the Republican party would like to claim that the warrant for the surveillance of Page was based purely on the Steele dossier, this is not the case.

The House Intelligence Committee's ranking Democrat, Adam Schiff, has said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was aboveboard in disclosing the political motivations behind the dodgy Steele dossier in its application to the FISA court. Despite cries that it discredited the Russia Investigation, some members of congress denied this, in fact some members of the very same body that released the memo think this way.

President Donald Trump on Friday blocked the release of a classified memo written by congressional Democrats to rebut a Republican document that he allowed to be made public last week that claimed FBI and Justice Department bias against him in the federal probe of Russian Federation and the 2016 USA election.

Trading has been extremely choppy, and the market has swung in wide ranges - up and down almost 2,300 points over the past week. The first drop took place on Monday, when the index dropped by 1,175 points, making it the worst plunge in its history.

In other words, Steele's Trump-Russia dossier not only informed Clinton's campaign against Trump, it was also informed by it, making for a bit of circular logic.

The memo emphasized that the impartiality of this dossier should be questioned as it was commissioned by Fusion GPS on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Convention.

"Well, again, it's all about sources and methods", Ryan said when asked if he believed Trump should release the Schiff memo. What was exposed were the dubious actions of law enforcement executives trying to use their government positions and powers to defeat Trump.

The Nunes memo, a four-page report written by Congressional Republicans detailing the FBI's alleged abuses of power while investigating President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation, was released to the public on February 2.

Another wave is forming in the wake of the GOP memo's release.

It's an odd claim, as the Nunes memo is four pages.

On Friday, the president met with FBI Director Christopher Wray, the principal associate deputy attorney general and the White House counsel's office to discuss the Democratic memo, according to the White House.

Yet after months of jargon by trump and his allies pushing for the memos release, in the end, like most things pushed by Trump and his allies, nothing of worth has come from its release.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said it "will take several days to complete" the review process for the Schiff memo. So, while the Democratic rebuttal to Nunes would also function as a partisan document, it is likely that any sensitive information redacted by Trump would be inculpatory.
