(National Sentinel) Storm Brewing: Investigative reporter Paul Sperry of the New York Post said in a series of tweets on Thursday that sources have informed him that the so-called “FISA memo” authored by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee will tar the reputations of the FBI and Justice Department, perhaps for a generation.
What’s more, Sperry said that the memo could also ensnare high-level Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as derail special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia, allegations of which have yet to be proven despite having been investigated by him, the Justice Department, and at least three congressional committees for more than a year.
Also, Sperry alleged that the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, or FISC, could also be caught up in scandal when the memo is released.
“I’m told Steele & Simpson + the FBI & DOJ/NSD + even FISC are all gonna be in a world of hurt when this 4-pp memo + underlying docs hit the fan. Steele & Simpson are caught in a sh*tstorm of lies, which further tainted the FBI’s FISA warrant to spy on Team Trump,” he tweeted, alluding to former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the infamous but unsubstantiated “Trump dossier,” and Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, which commissioned the dossier.
Sperry then noted, “… and as a result, the memo is going to create a BIG credibility problem for Mueller, since his team debriefed Steele and tapped into Simpson’s ‘research’ on Manafort and Deutsche Bank. Buckle your seatbelts, sports fans …”
Sperry then praised House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who was the primary author of the FISA memo. “Nunes is a serious fellow (1 of the few left in DC), so I doubt he’s exaggerating the classified evidence he’s seen in the SCIF underlying his memo. But he & GOP would be well-advised to attach as much of it as they can to quash Dem/MSM spin they’re overselling/playing politics,” he tweeted.
Sperry then added: “PREDICTION: When this memo PLUS the IG report hit, it will be a watershed moment in US history. The American people will never look at their government — or the presidential election process — the same way again. Trust in our federal institutions will be swept away.”
Tom Fitton, president of legal watchdog organization Judicial Watch, also said Thursday, “Mueller is racing to ‘interview’ President Trump before his own investigation further implodes with revelations of illegal anti-Trump actions/bias from the ‘Memo’ and text messages.”
Trump, reportedly against the advice of his counsel, has said he would agree to sit down and be interviewed on the record by Mueller, though no timetable has yet been established.
