Fact Check: Did Infowars Release the 'Secret FISA Memo'?

'I believe there are people who will go to jail' Did The Obama Administration Abuse FISA To Spy On The Trump Campaign? We'll Have To Wait 19 Days; UPDATE

U.S. House Intelligence Committee Democrats have drafted their own "memo" about the investigation of Russian Federation and the 2016 U.S. election, after calls for the release of a Republican memo critical of a special counsel's criminal probe, the panel's ranking Democrat said on Wednesday. There would be a five-day waiting period for President Trump to object, but he is not expected to object.

The memo has become a conservative rallying cry, with Republicans on Capitol Hill demanding that the documents be released.

The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that some conservative House Republicans had discussed the Republican memo and their plans to release it with Trump.

The declassified document can be found on the Office of the Director of National Intelligence's website, as TWS contributor Jeryl Bier pointed out on Twitter.

Schiff said panel Democrats will ask that their memorandum be made available for review by all House members on Monday at the committee's normally scheduled meeting.

"We certainly support full transparency and we believe that that's at the House Intel Committee to make that decision at this point", she said during the press briefing. "It sounds like there are members in the House that have some real concern with what's in that memo".

"Recent news reports indicate a classified memorandum prepared by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staff alleges abuses at the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the FISA process".

In general, the memo is about government agencies abusing the FISA courts and surveillance during the 2016 election.

The memo reportedly also shows that dossier author Christopher Steele lied to the FBI, which could explain why Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) earlier this month referred Steele for criminal investigation.

If he says yes, the memo can be released.

Democrats, like Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, argue that the pressure campaign is nothing more than a partisan attempt to protect Trump.
