It seems as though Donald Trump’s drain the swamp ethos is finding its way into every nook and cranny of the corrupt D.C. machine, with new revelations regarding the FBI sending patriotic Americans into a tizzy.
The air of corruption in Washington has long hovered over the city like a wet stench, with dirty money and backdoor politics making for a wildly pungent aroma of filth. Much of the trouble has been instigated by the special interest groups who buy and sell congressmen and women as if they were low-yield stocks, creating phony bidding wars for the privilege of getting on board with corporate chicanery. What’s worse still is what occurs when these groups don’t get their way, and begin laying waste to politicians and programs that are in opposition to their often greedy goals.
Then, as if to make the entire system seem beyond repair, comes a story about the FBI and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, (FISA), in which a yet to be released memo shown to congressmen behind closed doors points to something far more sinister than Big Money bribery.
“Members of the House on Thursday said they viewed a ‘shocking’ classified memo allegedly detailing abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by senior Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigations officials in relation to the investigation of the Trump campaign and called for it to be declassified and available to the public immediately.
“’It’s troubling. It is shocking,’ Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News. ‘Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.’
“’The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy,’ saidRep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a member of the Judiciary Committee, which oversees the DOJ and the FBI.
“Another Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), called what he saw in the memo ‘sickening’ and said it was ‘worse than Watergate.'”
The text of the memo has, as of this writing, not been released to the public despite an absolutely enormous campaign to have this revelation made public.
Twitter has even been accused by Reddit users of stifling the hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo – an egregious act that unfortunately lines up with the company’s more than apparent liberal slant.
You see, releasing this memo would draw harsh and unavoidable criticism to the DOJ under former President Barack Obama, and the FBI under his stooge James Comey, specifically as it pertains to their work to spy on and undermine the Donald Trump campaign in 2016. Again, this is something that many voters already believed what occurring based on other evidence uncovered during the election itself, and having the smoking gun revealed at a time in which the news media is under allegations of collusion with the Obama White House would blow a hole in the liberal voting base.
