Classified FISA Memo Released — Here’s What It Said

President Donald Trump released the controversial FISA memo Friday, but the drama surrounding Washington’s memo mania isn’t over yet. The memo, which accuses the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation of abusing their surveillance authority to spy on former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page, was commissioned by House Intelligence Committee chairman, Devin Nunes, R-Calif.

What did the memo actually say?

Here are the memo’s three main points:

  1. The memo accuses the FBI and DOJ political bias against President Donald Trump in their investigation of Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 campaign.
  2. It charges officials in the FBI and DOJ of withholding information concerning the Trump-Russia dossier when requesting a surveillance warrant from a FISA court judge.
  3. And that the FBI and DOJ abused their surveillance powers in order to eavesdrop on Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page.

Here are some key excerpts from the Memo:

“The DOJ was getting fed political opposition research, which was then handed to the FBI, who then lied about its origins in a Federal court,” explained Glenn on the show today. “So it defiantly appears that bias fueled the [surveillance] abuse.”

So, what happens next?

The House Intelligence Committee is now deliberating on the release of a classified Democratic “counter-memo” that would aim to disprove the one commissioned by Republicans.

“This isn’t about Hillary Clinton, and it is not about Donald Trump. It’s really not even about Barack Obama. This is about Russia,” said Glenn. “We still don’t know all of the information … but maybe the upcoming memo from the Democrats will fill in some of that information. But you can bet the house that we still will not have the real picture.”
