(National Sentinel) Epic Scandal: During a Thursday evening appearance on Fox News‘ “Hannity” program, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., predicted that officials within the Department of Justice and the FBI would not only be fired over alleged ties to a bogus FISA warrant obtained by the Obama administration and used to spy on the Trump campaign.
He and other Republican lawmakers are calling on the House Intelligence Committee to release a reportedly explosive but classified “FISA memo” that members who have read it say it lays out scandalous behavior on the part of the previous administration that goes well beyond Watergate.
The panel quietly voted earlier this week to release the memo to the full House. Members have already pored over the document, which they must do in a secure room due to its Top Secret classification.
On Hannity, Gaetz predicted that the memo’s contents would lead to serious consequences for all involved.
“I believe this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail. I was very persuaded by the evidence,” he said.
According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive” that it could lead to the end of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion probe.
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, in discussing the revelations contained in the memo, added: “This should never happen in a country like America.”
He said that if a majority of the House Intelligence Committee votes to release the memo, it would then go to the White House for review. If the president gives his approval, then the memo — or parts of it — would be released to the public.
Gaetz added that the entire Mueller probe “is a fallacy” that was “built on fiction, a lie.” He noted that not a single Democrat on the Intelligence Committee voted in favor of the memo’s release.
Per Hannity, watch:
Gaetz and others have also said that there is nothing in the memo that would compromise U.S. national security.
Chris Farrell, the director of investigations for government watchdog group Judicial Watch, said the memo was grossly “over classified.” He also said he believes that “corrupt law enforcement officers” within the federal government — including former FBI Director James Comey — should be fired, at a minimum.
