Let The Leaking Begin=> House Intel Panel Quietly Votes To Release Proof of FISA Program Abuse To Congress

On Thursday, the House Intelligence Committee quietly voted to make available to fellow House members “a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program,” reports Fox News’ Chad Pergram. With 435 House members, the likelihood of details from the memo leaking are high. And so are the stakes. 

Washington Examiner‘s Byron York called passage of the motion a “Major development.”

“Motion was approved on party-line vote. Info in report is classified, so report will be available for House members to read in secure room,” York added.

Why is the motion passage so important?

“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.”

In addition to passing Rep. Peter King’s motion, House Intelligence Committee members voted unanimously to release the transcript of the panel’s interview with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson.

As reported by The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila, Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) recently told fellow Republicans he has seen evidence demonstrating clear “abuse” of government surveillance programs by the Justice Department and FBI.


Nunes revealed back in December that his investigators uncovered evidence of abuse in U.S. government’s surveillance practices.

“I believe there’s evidence that abuses have occurred,” Nunes told Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge regarding the FISA courts and other surveillance practices.

“We have had an ongoing investigation into DOJ and FBI since mid-summer for both FISA abuse and other matters that we can’t get into too much. But it is very concerning.”
