(National Sentinel) Obamagate: More and more Republican lawmakers are demanding release of a classified “FISA memo” currently held by the House Intelligence Committee many believe will reveal a major Obama-era scandal.
In particular, Republicans believe that the Obama administration politicized U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies in an attempt to undermine the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.
On Thursday, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, commented on the memo on Twitter, calling it “sickening.”
“I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was #neverTrump & #alwaysHillary. #releasethememo,” he tweeted.
On Thursday, the House Intelligence Committee quietly voted to make available to fellow House members “a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program,” reports Fox News’ Chad Pergram.
Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., wants the memo released right away.
“Releasing this classified info doesn’t compromise good sources & methods. It reveals the feds’ reliance on bad sources & methods,” added Zeldin.
Meanwhile, Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., said the classified report compiled by the House Intelligence Committee is “deeply troubling,” adding that raises serious questions as it relates to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia “collusion” probe.
“The classified report compiled by House Intelligence is deeply troubling and raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation.”
He added: “While the report is classified as Top Secret, I believe the select committee should, pursuant to House rules, vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve the truth.”
