Gowdy: Americans should see the Nunes memo documenting FBI abuses

Published

on

The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace that the American people will want to read the four-page memorandum prepared by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence about the FBI and its interaction with the so-called “dossier,”  or opposition research file, developed by Hillary R. Clinton’s presidential campaign.

“This memo is nothing but the distilling, the reducing of thousands of pages of documents provided to us by the Department and the Bureau,” said. Rep. Harold W. “Trey” Gowdy III (R.-S.C.), who took over the committee June 13 upon the resignation from Congress of Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R.-Utah).

The House intel committee voted Monday to make the document public.

The South Carolina congressman is one of more than 200 congressmen–virtually all Republicans–who have read the memo. The memo has not been formally classified by the federal government, but it is very tightly guarded because it draws upon classified sources.

Typically, operations are classified as secret and sources and methods are classified as top secret.

Although memo is a congressional document, the committee’s own rule gives a president up to five days to block a public release. President Donald J. Trump and the White House have signaled that the executive branch will not object to making the memo public.

Gowdy said the memo reveals how the FBI used the dossier to secure a FISA warrant.

“If you think your viewers want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used, whether or not it’s ever been vetted,” Gowdy said.

“If you are interested in who paid for the dossier, if you’re interested in Christopher Steele’s relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, then, yes, you’ll want the memo to come out,” he said.

The chairman said to Wallace that the memo answers legitimate questions that he and others have about how the FBI operated during the 2016 political cycle.

Democrats have accused Nunes of using the memo to undermine the reputation of the FBI, but Gowdy said he would not be part of an unfair attack on the bureau.

“I think you’ll be surprised. It is not a hit piece on the department and the FBI. I would not have participated in it if that’s what it was.”

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS

They’re from South Carolina and Texas.

Published

The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.

The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.

We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.

They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.

Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.

These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
