FISA Memo: My thoughts

On Friday, the house committee finally released the FISA memo that highlights abuses of power from the FBI, and DOJ. I’m gonna show everything that is in the memo, and give my thoughts on it.

To start here is the full memo

As we see here, this all smells really bad for the FBI and democrats. The days leading up to the release, democrats were saying that this will be a threat to national security, but I don’t see how that can be so obviously they were saying that as a cover up essentially. At this point, as long as this memo is correct and it doesn’t have misinformation, I think indictments need to come down against the members of the FBI and DNC who were involved in this.

Now, the big question is whether or not this is enough to stop the Mueller investigation. In my opinion, I don’t think it’s enough to stop it and let me explain why. In the memo, we see that the FBI took out a FISA application against Carter Page based on a bad dossier about possible collusion with Russia to influence the election from Stelle. However, hidden in there, we see that the investigation started with George Papadopoulos and not with Carter Page. This is why I think the Mueller investigation doesn’t need to be stopped quite yet, but I think we’re close to that point. Where do we go from here? Well I think it’s safe to say that the left will keep calling this memo illegitimate and all that. I think what needs to happen is the house committee should release the underlying documents that go along with the memo, mostly to add credibility to the republicans.

To wrap it up, obviously this wasn’t a nothing burger, it’s actually something pretty serious. I hope that soon, all of the information in this will be brought out, so that we can finally put this investigation to rest.
