Media was set ablaze after the House Intelligence Committee released their classified FISA memo on Friday morning.
The unclassified memo shows former FBI Director James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Yates and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein misled the FISA court.
The Democrats are unhinged and desperate to release their spin junk memo in response to Nunes’ bombshell.
Ranking member of the House Intel Committee Adam Schiff gave us perhaps a sneak peak into what the Democrats are going to push back with in their memo set to be released next week.
It looks like the Dems are banking on none other than Papadopoulos being the nexus of the Russian collusion investigation rather than Hillary’s phony dossier.
On Saturday morning, Adam Schiff attacked President Trump on Twitter after the president tweeted, “This memo totally vindicates “Trump” in probe. But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on. Their was no Collusion and there was no Obstruction (the word now used because, after one year of looking endlessly and finding NOTHING, collusion is dead). This is an American disgrace!”

Schiff responded to POTUS, “Quite the opposite, Mr. President. The most important fact disclosed in this otherwise shoddy memo was that FBI investigation began July 2016 with your advisor, Papadopoulos, who was secretly discussing stolen Clinton emails with the Russians.”

Adam Schiff is being very deceptive in his response to the president. Papadopoulos wasn’t even discussing the Podesta emails which were blasted out to the public via WikiLeaks in July of 2016. Papadopoulos was discussing Hillary’s ‘missing’ emails in April of 2016, A MONTH before the Podesta emails were given to WikiLeaks. These ‘Hillary emails’ are completely separate from the Podesta DNC emails.
Furthermore, Republican investigators have evidence dossier author Christopher Steele met with James Comey on July 5th 2016 which is the EXACT SAME DAY the former FBI Director exonerated Hillary Clinton.
John Solomon of The Hill reported this bombshell news:
Republican investigators say they have evidence that Steele first approached the FBI with his allegations on July 5, 2016, the same day then-FBI Director James Comey announced he would not pursue criminal charges against Clinton for passing more than 100 classified documents through her private email server.
A brief timeline:
June 20th 2016: Date of the first report compiled in Christopher Steele’s dossier.
June 27th 2016: Then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton met on the Phoenix Int’l airport tarmac to discuss ‘golf and grandkids’. The FBI scrambled to cover up this scandalous meeting.
July 5th 2016: Republican investigators now have evidence Steele approached James Comey on this date with concerns then-candidate Donald Trump was working with the Russians.
Also July 5th 2016: Then-FBI Director James Comey gives a press conference exonerating Hillary Clinton of the criminal email investigation.
Late July: According to Comey’s testimony to House Intel Committee he opened a probe into Trump’s connections to Russia in late July.
August 6th 2016: Hillary Clinton sends out her first of 8 tweets about Trump’s connections to Russia.
September 23rd: Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News runs a story about Trump’s campaign advisor Carter Page and his possible ‘secret channels’ to Russia. This Yahoo News story ended up being used on the FISA application.
October 21st 2016: The FBI sought and received a FISA warrant on Carter Page using ‘intelligence’ in Hillary’s phony Russia dossier. THREE FISA renewals were subsequently granted using the same fraudulent dossier.
October 31st 2016: With just days to go until election day, David Corn of Mother Jones broke the story of a ‘veteran spy’ who gave the FBI information on Trump’s alleged connections to Russia. Christopher Steele, British spy and author of the garbage dossier was not named in this Mother Jones report. Only hints of the dossier were published; the salacious claims were omitted.
January 10th 2017: Buzzfeed publishes entire Russia dossier.
January 24th 2017: Peter Strzok ambushed General Flynn with the help of McCabe with a surprise ‘interview’ about his conversations with Russian Ambassador Kislyak. This led to Flynn’s firing.
March 2nd 2017: Jeff Sessions recuses himself from the Russia investigation. Rod Rosenstein subsequently takes over as Deputy AG.
May 17th 2017: Robert Mueller is appointed Special Counsel by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein to investigate ‘Trump-Russia collusion’ during the 2016 election.
Chairman Nunes’ FISA memo says Papadopoulos was mentioned in Carter Page’s FISA application, however; there is zero evidence of any cooperation or conspiracy between Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.
Also according to the memo, it was Trump-hating FBI agent Peter Strzok (he aslo discussed an “insurance policy” against a Trump victory) who opened a counter-intelligence investigation into Trump in late July based on the Papadopoulos information.
Since there is no way a FISA application would have been approved based on hearsay from a couple of drunk dudes in a bar, the FBI had to take information from the dossier to the FISA court.
Disgraced FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said under oath in a December 2017 testimony to the House Intel Committee that a FISA warrant would have never been sought nor granted but if not for Hillary’s phony Russia dossier.
The Russia dossier, paid for by Hillary’s camp and the FBI is what set the entire Trump-Russia collusion witch hunt into motion, NOT Papadopoulos’ drunken banter.
Julian Assange killed the Papadopoulos theory in one tweet:
Big puzzle: why does #FBI claim its investigation is based #Papadopoulos hearing in April "Russians have thousands of Clinton emails". Simple cross-check shows #WikiLeaks' #DNCLeaks weren't obtained from DNC until 25 May and investigation started in July after WL has published.
