FISA Memo Explainer: Here’s What We Know About the Controversial Memo so Far

The latest kerfuffle in the ongoing Russia investigation is over the release of a classified, four-page memo which may or may not show that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation abused their FISA court authorized surveillance powers.

In a nutshell, please

Republican chairman of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, commissioned the controversial memo which allegedly accuses the FBI and Justice Department of:

1.) Being politically biased against President Donald Trump in their investigation of Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 campaign.

2.) Misleading the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in order to obtain a warrant which would allow eavesdropping on Trump campaign officials, namely Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Allegedly, the FISA judge involved in the warrant request process was not told that the incriminating Trump-Russia dossier — which was necessary to establish a need for FBI surveillance — was financed in part by the Democratic National Committee.

Remind me about that dossier

As you may remember during the whole Fusion GPS/ Trump dossier debacle, the dossier was compiled by former British spy, Christopher Steele. Steele was reportedly paid by political consulting firm, Fusion GPS. And Fusion GPS was hired by Democrats and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Back to the memo, why hasn’t it been released?

Democrats claim that Republicans will use the memo to undermine Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, both of whom were brought in by Trump and Senate Republicans, say that releasing the memo could jeopardize classified information and have expressed “grave concerns” about the memo’s accuracy.

Of course, Glenn has a few thoughts and theories to add as well. Watch the clip above to learn more about the controversial Nunes FISA memo, what it says, and why some people would prefer that it never sees the light of day.

Bill O’Reilly: ‘INSANE’ how badly Kamala & Biden handled border crisis

Vice President Kamala Harris — tasked by President Biden to handle the current border crisis — is currently on, what Bill O'Reilly calls, 'the befuddlement tour.' So not only has Joe Biden ruined the border situation beyond repair, O'Reilly explains, he's now also chosen somebody who seemingly is incapable of solving problems to fix the problem. O'Reilly says it's 'INSANE' how badly they've handled this situation and that it's time for Americans to take a stand, show the government some backlash, and finally say 'enough!'

Biden's Hostile Takeover: The Great Reset of America

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?
