The first thing I want to point out is the ridiculous screeching from the left and their fellow travelers in the MSM about how release of the Memo would be a national security nightmare. I challenge anybody to point out anything in the Memo that puts our national security at issue. The only thing the Memo exposes is the unconstitutional actions of the Obama administration and the corruption at the highest levels of the DOJ and FBI, and puts these swamp dwellers at risk. Comey ought to shut the hell up because he needs to be prosecuted and put in jail.
Now what did we really learn from the Memo? Not as much as I would have hoped. Almost all of it was things we knew or suspected. The things we learned were that Comey and his suck ups lied by omission to FISA court to get the ability to surveil the Trump campaign. They didn’t tell the judge that their supposed basis was bought and paid for by Hillary and unsubstantiated. They didn’t tell the judge that Steele not only was paid by Clinton but was a died in the wool Trump hater dedicated to making sure he wasn’t elected and if he was that he was removed. They didn’t tell the judge that Steele was fired by the FBI for violating there rules and they didn’t tell the judge that their use of Yahoo news to corroborate the fake news dossier was actually info fed to Yahoo by Steele.
As an aside, using Yahoo news to get a FISA warrant is even more ridiculous than using this blog to get one.
We also learned that there would never have a application for a FISA warrant absent the bogus Steele dossier. McCabe testified under oath to that effect and when Wray saw the memo, McCabe was either fired or resigned protecting his pension.
Before I get to what needs to be done let me talk about the Dems counter memo by Schiff. After throwing a hissy fit about the Memo revealing sources and methods, it has been reported that his memo in fact reveals sources and methods and thus needs to be redacted before it can be released. Do it and release it. The Dems have nothing! Also release all the underlying documents and in particular all the affidavits presented to the FISA court to justify spying on Trump.
What needs to be done? Fire Rosenstein. Appoint a special prosecutor to determine if crimes were committed in obtaining the FISA warrants and whether Comey, McCabe, Clinton, Rosenstein, Meuller, Lynch, Strzok, Page and Ohr committed crimes. They did.
My disappointment in the Memo is that it only covered the FISA warrants and not the numerous other crimes committed by Obama, Clinton and their stooges,
