(National Sentinel) Obamagate: During a Friday evening appearance with Fox News‘ Martha McCallum, Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan discussed the “shocking” FISA memo released to lawmakers by the House Intelligence Committee that ostensibly details massive abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by the Obama administration.
Specifically, the four-page memo reportedly proves that the Obama White House misused the FISA process to improperly obtain a surveillance warrant against members of President Donald J. Trump’s campaign and transition team under the guise of a counterintelligence operation.
Jordan, who said he’s read the memo, appeared with McCallum to discuss the context to the memo.
“I know that you are, you’re all not talking about the classified information in this four page document put together by [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Devin Nunes [R-Calif], basically collates all of their investigation that he wanted all of you to see,” McCallum said. “You’ve read it. Do you believe that there is a crime in there committed by the DOJ and FBI or members of those entities?”
“Look, what I believe is what my colleagues have said, what I’ve said is the American people need to see this. We want the journalists in this great country to see this. Mostly, we want the American people to understand what the FBI did, how wrong it was, and again, we’re not allowed to talk about it,” Jordan said.
“The last point [Fox News correspondent] Ed [Henry] made was right on target. The committee could meet today, could meet tomorrow — if the majority of the committee votes to release this — it goes to the White House, the White House could say ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down,'” Jordan continued, alluding to the fact that Trump would have to approve the memo’s public release.
“My guess is there going to say ‘thumbs up’ and then it’s out there and the American people can see what took place at the highest levels of our FBI, at the highest levels of the Justice Department that should not happen in this great nation,” Jordan added.
McCallum said some have compared the alleged scandal to Watergate, calling it much more serious, then pressed Jordan for more specifics regarding Obama administration actions.
“Again, I can’t talk about the specifics, that’s why we’re pushing so hard make it public so we can talk about the specifics,” he responded. “But think about what we knew a long time ago.
“The Clinton campaign paid for the dossier. Think about those text messages from Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, where they talk about — remember the text messages where they talk about ‘walking through Wal-Mart, I can smell the Trump supporters’ — the derision they have for the people who supported the president,” Jordan said.
“The anti-Trump bias, the pro-Clinton bias and then think about the text messages that talks about an insurance policy to make sure Donald Trump is not elected by the American people,” he said.
