The bombshell House FISA memo is due to be released literally any moment now. And by the time you read this, it may have already come to pass.
But in the last 24 hours there’s been a rush by detractors to downplay expectations for the memo in hopes that its impact will be lower.
That might be why senior Republicans in the House — who’ve actually read it — are pushing back on those claims arguing that it will indeed astonish.
Fox News’ Ed Henry has revealed from his sources in the House that there will be at least four explosive revelations which have yet to be leaked.
And those four facts will entirely justify the memo’s creation and release to the public.
Either way, we’ll know within hours or even minutes what the DOJ and FBI were really up to.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
Top Republicans say the public can expect four bombshell revelations to come out of the FISA abuse memo on Friday.
“Senior Republicans are pushing back on reports suggesting that this memo will not live up to the hype,” Fox News’ Ed Henry reported Thursday evening on The Story with Martha MacCallum. “There are four separate explosive revelations in the memo that have not leaked out ahead of tomorrow’s expected release,” he added.
Henry noted that if the claim is true, it would vindicate House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, who has “suggested that the memo will reveal by top FBI and Justice officials dating back to the Obama administration,” while top Democrats have accused Nunes of politicizing the Russia investigation to protect Trump.
According to John Solomon of The Hill, congressional Republicans are releasing the memo to make the case that the FBI’s entire Russia collusion investigation “was based on flawed or politically tainted evidence connected to partisans loyal to Hillary Clinton.”
Another document — an eight-page criminal referral filed with the Justice Department by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) — is also part of the GOP case.
While the FBI has been protesting the release of the Nunes memo, it has been working behind the scenes to vet a version of the Grassley-Graham memo, which is expected to be released in redacted form soon. The FBI is also seeking redactions to the Nunes memo, though it is not clear the White House or congressional Republicans will agree to them.
Republicans believe both documents will back up arguments that evidence used to justify the FBI’s probe came from partisans loyal to Clinton, sources said. They are also expected to play into arguments from some Republicans that special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia is based on false information.
