The House Intelligence Committee released its bombshell FISA memo Friday afternoon, outlining widespread abuse and anti-Trump bias throughout the FBI and the Department of Justice.
The four-page document shows senior FBI agents and Department of Justice officials used the Clinton-financed ‘Trump Dossier’ as the cornerstone of FISA court orders that allowed them to spy on “at least one” senior Trump associate in the run-up to the 2016 presidential campaign.
After days of Democratic opposition and the bureau’s “grave concerns” over releasing the explosive document, President Trump de-classified the material Friday morning, sending it back to the House Intelligence Committee for its release to the American public.

BOOKER BREAKDOWN: Cory GOES NUCLEAR, Says Releasing FISA MEMO ‘Treasonous’
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker continued his all-out anti-Trump rampage this week, saying he believes that releasing the House Intelligence Committee’s FISA memo would be “tantamount to treason” and jeopardizes the lives of those in the intelligence community.
The liberal legislator was speaking with SiriusXM when he made the outlandish remarks, adding that GOP lawmakers who wish to release the classified material are “betraying” the men and women who work to keep our country safe.
“This fury and fire that has been created around this, is to me tantamount to a dangerous conspiracy theory that can undermine the important work our Justice Department and intelligence communities do,” said Booker.
“I might say tantamount to treasonous in the sense of -when you violate the intelligence community’s mandate around classified documentation and what should be released- you could be betraying, or especially if you’re revealing sources and methods, you are actually endangering fellow Americans in the intelligence community,” he added.
“To me, this is something that could be potentially viewed as treasonous,” said Booker.

CLINTON COLLUSION: FBI Given SECOND DOSSIER by Longtime Clinton Aide
The FBI’s never-ending investigation into allegations the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials has received a second anti-Trump dossier from a longtime Clinton insider; raising further questions over the DNC’s secretive role in the ongoing probe.
According to the Guardian, the Department of Justice was given the unconfirmed material by Cody Shearer, a former journalist with close connections to President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State -and President Trump’s opponent in the 2016 election- Hillary Clinton.
“The second memo was written by Cody Shearer, a controversial political activist and former journalist who was close to the Clinton White House in the 1990s,” writes the Guardian. “Unlike Steele, Shearer does not have a background in espionage, and his memo was initially viewed with skepticism, not least because he had shared it with select media organizations before the election.
The revelation comes as Congressional investigators and lawmakers struggle to find answers regarding the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
This week, the House Intelligence Committee voted to release a bombshell FISA memo, reportedly showing widespread abuse of FISA courts to surveil on American citizens -even those with close ties to the Trump campaign.
It’s unclear if the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ served as the basis for these FISA warrants.
