After Democratic lawmakers insulted half of America by declaring that the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag was just Russian bots — a new #NotABot hashtag went viral calling for the release of a memo that is alleged to outline surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign.
Hey @SenFeinstein @RepAdamSchiff
Do I look like a "Russian Bot" to you?
No, I'm a concerned American who wants to know just how corrupt and unconstitutional our government became under the Obama Administration. #NotABot #ReleaseTheMemo pic.twitter.com/AeP70PzRYh

On Thursday evening, Twitter users began using #NotABot to tweet photos of themselves holding signs with the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag.
Users who participated in the campaign were instructed to tag Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).
Hey, @SenFeinstein & @RepAdamSchiff.
Your Russian bot conspiracy theories won't distract us from the 50,000 Strzok and Page texts or the bombshell memo.
Inspector General Horowitz is recovering the texts, btw. #ReleaseTheMemo #NotABot pic.twitter.com/TNUkICjn9D

The memo in question was drafted by Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) about alleged FISA abuses at the Department of Justice. It is said to implicate FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and former FBI Director James Comey and is based on classified material that was provided to the intelligence committee, which Nunes chairs.
