Two Republican Representatives call for making intelligence memo on the Russia investigation public

January 18, 2018

  Earlier today the House Intelligence Committee voted to make a memo related to FISA abuses available to the entire House of Representatives and then Ron DeSantis called to make this available to the public as well.

  Here is more:

DeSantis said the classified report compiled by the House Intelligence Committee is “deeply troubling” and raises serious questions as it relates to the ‘Russian collusion’ investigation.

Rep. DeSantis then called for the highly top secret report to be made public because “the American people deserve to know the truth”.

DeSantis tweeted, “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.”

DeSantis then said, “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.”

  He was not alone in calling for the memo to be made public; Matt Gaetz said the contents of this memo “go to the very foundations of our democracy” and called for its release to the public.

“The allegations contained in this important intelligence document go to the very foundations of our democracy, and they require an immediate release to the public in my opinion,” Gaetz said. “Unfortunately, I can not talk about the specific facts contained within this memo. I can only share my observation — that if the American people knew what was happening if they saw the contents of this memo, a lot would become clear about the information that I’ve been talking about the last several months. And so, I am calling on our leadership to hold a vote on the floor of the House to make public the key contents of this intelligence memo regarding the FBI, the Department of Justice and President Trump.”

  What these men should have done was release this memo to the public on their own just as Dianne Feinstein did with Glenn Simpson’s testimony. Surely Democrats who have been praising Dianne Feinstein for her courage in releasing the testimony would not suddenly change their position if either man did the same, right…

  But on a serious and non sarcastic note, I have said for awhile Democrats may rue the day they pushed the false Trump/Russia collusion scandal and just maybe now the dominoes will begin to fall. Dianne Feinstein’s decision backfired on the Democrats when we began to see what is in the testimony and now, hopefully, the floodgates will open.

    This is the second time DeSantis has called on the House to release information to the public. At least there is one Rep who stands for liberty.

    This maybe the beginning of the Revolution we hoped for.

    To bad the Congress just reapproved FISA.

      I just mentioned FISA being renewed in you other comment before I saw this one. 🙂 It is a shame they didn’t make this know before but maybe we are on the verge of finally getting to the truth.

    While hope springs eternal so does the media bias coupled with the long reach if the Clinton’s and the dirty Obama administration. There may well be efforts by some in the government on a quest to bring reveal who is behind the curtain and their corruption but with the ignorant among us numbering in biblical proportions the 2018 and 2020 elections may give both the House and Senate to the left since it appears even now some republicans up for reelection are throwing in the towel. The democrats in league with their RINO buddies need only drag out these investigations till November and the jig is up.

      They were counting on Hillary winning to make this all go away and now the race is on to get to November so they can kill this once and for all. It may be time to pull a Dianne Feinstein and release the memo on their own if it is really this salacious.

      Thanks for sharing! It is also telling none of the Democrats on the Committee wanted this memo to go to the House for review.

      More and more Republicans are calling for the public release of this memo, I hope that we someday find out what is in it and I hope this is not a bunch of hype about nothing. I don’t think it is.
