Freedom Caucus Chairman Meadows leads Capitol Hill conservatives demanding release Obama FISA abuse memo

Published

on

Capitol Hill conservatives are pressuring the Republican leadership to approve releasing a memorandum produced by The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on how President Barack Obama’s administration used the national security apparatus to surveil the campaign of Donald J. Trump to the American people.

The Intelligence Committee approved a motion Thursday proposed by Rep. Peter T. King (R.-N.Y.) that made the four-page memorandum and the relevant source material.

The memo chronicles how the Obama administration watched the Trump campaign and sought to use that collection to manipulate the election process, including how the administration and associated people participated in the construction and distribution of the opposition research file on Trump paid for by the campaign of the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary R. Clinton–a file known as “The Dossier.”

Throughout the day, House Republicans, like the Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus Rep. Mark Meadows (R.-N.C.) took to the House floor to describe what they could about the classified memo and express their desire for the memo to be made public.

“I am here to tell all of America tonight that I am shocked to read exactly what has taken place,” Meadows said from the House well.

“I would think it would never happen in a country that loves freedom and democracy,” he said.

Meadows said the House Intelligence Committee and its chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R.-Calif.) have done an outstanding job resolving the confusion around the charge that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government in the 2016 election cycle.

The dossier is a narrative of this collusion and the dossier was used by Democratic operatives, members of the media supporting the Clinton candidacy and the Obama national security team to taint President Donald J. Trump as an agent of the Russian government and justify its intelligence collection operation on the Trump camp.

Obama administration officials used the ruse of tracking foreigners in the United States under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court process for permission to monitor the movements and communications of the Trump camp, after asserting that the Trump team was in a collusionary relationship with agents of a foreign power.

“It is time we become transparent in all of this and I am calling on our leadership to make this available, so that all Americans can judge for themselves,” Meadows said.

On Twitter, the hashtag: #ReleaseTheMemo has been a leading domestic and international trend and many Capitol Hill conservatives have Tweeted their own support for the memo’s release.

NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine

Completely inappropriate.

Published

on

Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.

In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.

In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.

A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.

Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.

This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
