THE MEMO HAS BEEN RELEASED! I REPEAT: The memo has been released, and it’s critical. Read the memo for yourself here, or just read my take, which will be a lot more fun and exciting due to my sarcasm and explicit use of hyperbole.
You’ve probably seen the trending #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag all over social media for the past few weeks and you may have been wondering what its all about. In a nutshell, the whole Trump/Russia collusion situation was a giant cover-up by the Democrats in attempt to distract us from the fact that they spied on the Trump team during the election. This has been developing for a few weeks now and I’ve been following it intently. Let me kick it off with the most critical question: How was the info on the Trump team constantly being communicated back to Fusion GPS and landing in the hands of American intelligence officials? Ok, now lets back up. What is Fusion GPS? Fusion GPS is a political opposition research company. What do they have to do with anything? It was the company hired by Hillary Clinton and the DNC through the Perkins law firm to compile the Steele Dossier on Donald Trump. So a quick chain of events: Hillary and the DNC hires the Perkins Law firm; Perkins hires Fusion GPS; Fusion GPS hires British MI6 operative, Christopher Steele. Steele (who happens to be a staunch critic and known hater of Donald Trump) compiles a dossier full of bogus information on Donald Trump. You may remember the fallacious story about russian hookers pissing on Donald Trump that was in the news for 5 minutes before it was completely debunked; that was part of it. This dossier was then used by the DOJ to apply for a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant under the guise that the dossier wasn’t a complete collection of politically biased, compartmentalized bullshit. The FISA warrant was used to wiretap Trump tower and spy on the campaign team. Sounds like some old school totalitarian communist Bolshevik shit, but nah. This was 2016 United States of America, land of the free home of the tyrannical despotic Obama administration spying on private citizens.
Now back to the original question on the line of communication. After it came out that the dossier was fake and funded by the DNC, Fusion GPS got rid of Christopher Steele in attempt to salvage some credibility. Yet, somehow negative information was still coming in. How? Nellie Ohr, the wife of DOJ official Bruce Ohr, was hired by Fusion GPS after they parted ways with Christopher Steele. Her job was to get the fake dossier from a political environment to the intelligence community. So, what this memo confirms, is that the FBI and the DOJ went to the FISA court with a dossier they knew was completely bogus, withheld that information from the judge, and in order to give the dossier authenticity, they site media reporting that was backed by Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, the producer of the same dossier they’re attempting to authenticate. Think about that. Read it again. It. Makes. No. Sense. It would be like me trying to authenticate this blog post by citing this blog post as a source.
This memo isn’t the end, its the beginning. It’s going to be a shitstorm. We’re probably going to see it corroborated with bank records, witness accounts, and people being thrown under the bus. It’s going to be a wild wild few weeks and I can’t wait.
