A fake dossier paid for by one political party and its candidate was used by the government to spy on that candidate’s opponent.
That is sedition.

A four-page memo circulating in Congress that reveals alleged United States government surveillance abuses is being described by lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.
Speaking with Fox News, the lawmakers said they could not yet discuss the contents of the memo they reviewed on Thursday after it was released to members by the House Intelligence Committee. But they say the memo should be immediately made public.
“It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said.
“It’s troubling. It is shocking,” North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said. “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.”
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz said he believed people could lose their jobs after the memo is released.
“I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice,” he said, referencing DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr.
“You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is,” Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry said.
The House Intelligence Committee on Thursday approved a motion by New York Rep. Pete King to release the memo on abuses of FISA, or the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, to all House members.
A source close to the matter said the memo details the Intelligence Committee’s oversight work for the FBI and Justice, including the controversy over unmasking and FISA surveillance.

A new bombshell report hit Washington Thursday afternoon that has left Republican lawmakers shocked, alarmed, and calling for heads to roll, and it is all centered around a four-page memo written by House Intel Committee Republicans on FISA abuse and the Trump dossier.
The shocking memo is currently still classified information, but some who have read it are describing it as “much worse than a government shutdown,” and “bigger than Watergate.”
Included in the chain of events Thursday were:
- The House Intelligence Committee voted unanimously to release the full transcript of the hearing with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, which they subsequently did release later Thursday afternoon.
- The Senate voted to reauthorize the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)
- Rep. Peter King offered a motion to allow all House members to review a report written by House Intel Republicans, summarizing the committee investigation into ‘FISA Abuse.’
Soon, calls came in from Republicans, demanding that this ‘Top Secret’ classified report be released not only to all members of congress, but to the public. Twitter now has a new, exploding hashtag: #ReleaseTheMemo.
It was reported during the Hannity show on Fox News that Democratic lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee did not even want the memo released to the entire Congress, much less to the general public.
One of the primary allegations is that the salacious “Trump dossier” was used as a means of obtaining a FISA warrant to surveil the Trump campaign… but the dossier itself has now been described as a complete phony.
President Trump himself suggested last week that the “discredited and phony dossier” had been used to “surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration.”
From Gateway Pundit:
The House Intel panel’s passage of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s motion to release the FISA abuse memo to fellow House members has rocked Washington, D.C.
Lawmakers from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) have called for the classified memo’s immediate release. According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe once and for all.
Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino warned the release of the FISA report will destroy the image of his former boss Barack Obama.
“Take it to the bank, the FBI/FISA docs are devastating for the Dems. The whole image of a benevolent Barack Obama they’ve disingenuously tried to portray is about to be destroyed. The real Obama, the vengeful narcissist, is going to be exposed for all to see,” tweeted Dan Bongino.
Report contains answer to question of whether FBI/DOJ used Trump dossier to secure FISA warrant to spy on Americans, plus other issues. Now, whole House can know. Public still in dark. 3/3

The main purpose was to dig for any “evidence” of collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Russians. Obama used wiretaps for that purpose. It was purely an act of sedition. They found no wrong doing, and won’t admit to the wiretaps or the lack of evidence.
Obama’s spin doctor, Ben Rhodes, who bragged about creating a media echo chamber to sell Obama’s dicked-up foreign policy, and also had a hand in the infamous Benghazi “talking points”, spied on US Jews while Obama was helping Iran with the nuke deal.
The FISA court gave Obama permission to wiretap Trump in October under the guise of national security. Obama did that in case Trump was elected, so he could use whatever eavesdropping he compiled to undermine the Trump administration. He pulled an end-around and basically lied to FISA in order to get the permission to wiretap. Mary Anna Marsh, principal of the Dewey Square Group, a Democrat PR firm, stated quite clearly that the Obama regime had been snooping on Trump since 2015, and it was widely known.
Over eight years of his regime, Obama was pretty prolific with the wiretaps.

Obama, Ben Rhodes, Susan Rice, and James Comey all had a hand in the illegal wiretaps and much more. They should all be prosecuted.
