A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is explosive, stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Muellers Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.
The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive FISA Abuse related to the controversial dossier available to all House members. The report contains information regarding the dossier that alleges President Trump and members of his team colluded with the Russians in the 2016 presidential election. Some members of the House viewed the document in a secure room Thursday.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., offered the motion on Thursday to make the Republican majority-authored report available to the members.
The document shows a troubling course of conduct and we need to make the document available, so the public can see it, said a senior government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the document. Once the public sees it, we can hold the people involved accountable in a number of ways. The government official said that after reading the document some of these people should no longer be in the government.
The document also apparently outlines several problematic issues with how FISA warrants were packaged, and used state several sources with knowledge of the report.
Over the past year, whistleblowers in the law enforcement and intelligence community have revealed to Congress what they believe to be extensive abuse with regard to FISA surveillance, as previously reported.
The dossier was used in part as evidence for a warrant to surveil members of the Trump campaign, according to a story published this month. Former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier in 2016, was hired by embattled research firm Fusion GPS. The firms founder is Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who has already testified before Congress in relation to the dossier. In October, The Washington Post revealed for the first time that it was the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC that financed Fusion GPS.
Congressional members are hopeful that the classified information will be declassified and released to the public.
We probably will get this stuff released by the end of the month, stated a congressional member, who asked not to be named.
But the government official, who viewed the document said it will be tough for a lot of people to see this and especially the media, which has been attempting to deemphasize the dossier. Its going to punch a hole in their collusion narrative.
The House vote to make the report available to all members is a major step in exposing the long-guarded classified documents obtained by the House Intelligence Committee over the past year. It allows members of the House to view the report and could quickly lead to a motion to declassify the report for the public, numerous House members told this reporter.
Its a (House Intelligence) committee document that deals with the assessment on the Department of Justice, FBI and the oversight work that is being conducted by the committee, said a congressional source, which spoke on condition that they not be named.

‘Removal’? Oh, *that’s* got ‘em quaking in their boots.
D.C.: American’s greatest sh!thole.
No work on the CR without the public release of the “FISA Abuse” memo.
Any other source? Seems susspect
@mattgaetz: “The allegations contained in this important intelligence document go to the very foundations of our democracy and they require an immediate release to the public in my opinion.”

And we will see it, next week, or possibly next month, or Never.
4 page memo re: FISA and O gov’t
This will be the biggest scandal in our country’s history. It will put to shame any conspiracy theory’s wildest reach. With that the demise of today’s demonrat party. A blatant corrupt attempt to destroy democracy, our constitution and a sitting president duly elected. The revolution is upon us bringing a cornucopia of winning. It’s pitchfork & torches time, kids. And it’s going to be beautiful.
This is undoubtedly why the FBI is spreading chaff tonite with the help of Mueller and his gang about some Russian donations to the NRA; anything, anything to get the focus of their own wrongdoing and the slobs that were part of it, working on taxpayer dollars. Thank God we have Grassley in the Senate and Nunes, Jordan and Gaetz in the House or I guarantee, it would never come out.
Unacceptable. Release it now! I've contacted my congresscritter.
Sessions will recuse himself from that, too!
I wonder if any of the documents in the document dump backs this up ? maybe they need the IC report earlier rather than later...
I think they call it ‘ensemble’ ;)
