Full tile: Freedom Caucus Chairman Sends Letter to Trump Requesting He Use Powers to Release ALL Docs on FISA Abuse and Unredacted Rosenstein Memo
Freedom caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) sent President Trump a letter Wednesday afternoon requesting he use his Presidential powers to instruct AG Sessions to declassify and release ALL FISA abuse documents and the unredacted Rosenstein memo detailing Muellers scope.
We have reached the one year anniversary of the Mueller witch hunt and these GOP lawmakers have had enough of the stonewalling from the DOJ and FBI.

One would think Trump could really help himself by ordering the release of redacted FBI-Strozk, Page, McCabe, Comey documents, and FISA applications.
It would really drop a bomb on the Deep State, and Brennan, Clapper, Comey FBI/CIA meddling in the 2016 election.
Why hasn’t he done it??
Why hasnt he done it??
Maybe he realizes that people are sympathizing with him and dont want that to stop. If things turn negative he can release it. Maybe a few more people need to drop into the net.
Yep, I think DOJ-OIG report will clear the way for the release of all sorts of documents.
I want the people who think Mueller be allowed to go on and on. Every time he and his troop of flying monkeys subpoenas some one they have to hire a lawyer. Unlike Mueller and congress most of these people do NOT have unlimited taxpayer funded resources. I am sick of seeing good people financially destroyed so they can continue to pad their nests and puff up their own sense of self importance.
I want a full accounting of what this whole thing has cost.
I don't think so.
Based on the content of the documents, I think Trump will get more sympathy after they are released.
Ok fine so when the hell is the IG report going to be released. Our patience was exhausted long ago. F’n Muelle just sent out more supeanas.
Peter Strzok seemingly was the lynchpin for the deep state “insurance policy.” Once you hear his name all over the news for being fired or cooperating, the IG report should be imminent. Most everyone else has been canned.
Trump will never release docs from DOJ and FBI.
That will not happen.
We The People will be lucky if any high-level seditionists are indicted.
Donald Trump is a supreme pragmatist, not a resolute ideologue. I decided to vote for him the day he declared, knowing that. I would do so again without hesitation.
I expect the White Hat Big Ugly crowd will be disappointed by the final outcome.
Trump wants to get things done, not focus on righting wrongs.
‘One would think Trump could really help himself by ordering the release of redacted FBI-Strozk, Page, McCabe, Comey documents, and FISA applications.

It would drop a bomb on Sessions, and his bff, Rosenstein.
In trudging through the FISA document that came to light on Tuesday, it was discovered that the National Security Agency had been illegally conducting searches on people in the US. The document has gone on to state that those illegal searches, which were conducted under Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, mounted to a whopping 85% of the total searches involving US person indentifiers.
Section 702 data on US persons identifiers may be conducted if they are first approved in accordance with [internal] NSA procedures, which must require a statement of facts establishing that the use of any such identifier as a selection term is reasonably likely to return foreign intelligence information. The problem is that querying US persons without a warrant amounts to a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment, no matter what internal NSA procedures are followed.
The Fourth Amendment is crystal clear: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
On page 81, the FISA report pointed out that In May and June 2016, NSA reported to oversight personnel in the ODNI and DOJ that, since approximately 2012, use of [redacted] to query communications in [redacted] had resulted in inadvertent violations of the above-described querying rules of Section 702 information. The NSA claims that the violations resulted from analysts not recognizing the need to avoid querying datasets for which querying requirements were not satisfied or not understanding how to formulate [redacted] queries to exclude such datasets. more at freedomoutpost.com ...
WHY SUSAN RICE WROTE AN EMAIL TO HERSELF........the extraordinary email Obama's National Security Advisor Susan Rice wrote to herself at 12:15 on January 20, 2017........within minutes of President Trump's inauguration must have been her last act, more or less, before she vacated the White House. So obviously the email was important to her. But why would it be important to send an email to herself (the only person copied was one of her aides)?
If you read the email, along with Senator Grassleys letter to Rice, it is obvious that it is a CYA memo. But the question is, whose A is being Cd? Most attention, so far, has focused on the first two paragraphs of the email, which describe a meeting that occurred around two weeks earlier.
The participants included <><>Barack Obama, <><>Joe Biden, <><>James Comey, <><> Sally Yateswho turns up like a bad penny whenever skulduggery is afoot <><>and Rice:
Rice made sure to underscore that Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities by the book. Rice writes Obama stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.
This is pure boilerplate.
It represents, obviously, the Obama company line. But Rice did not write her email to cover Barack Obamas rear end. If she or anyone else had wanted to document the claim that Obama said to proceed by the book, the appropriate course would have been an official memo that copied others who were present and would have gone into the file. (My guess is that such a memo was written, but we havent seen it.)
The important part of the email is not the paragraph that purports to exonerate Obama, but the paragraphs that follow: "From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia."
The next paragraph of the email remains classified and has been redacted. The email concludes: The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would.
CONCLUSION Why did Susan Rice send herself an email purporting to document this part of the meeting? Because she was Cing her own A. Rice was nervous about the fact that, at the presidents direction, she had failed to share information fully as it relates to Russia with President Trumps incoming national security team.
Rice's actions violated longstanding American tradition. Outgoing administrations have always cooperated in the transition to a new administration, whether of the same or the opposing party, especially on matters relating to national security.
Susan Rice is far from the brightest bulb on the tree, but she was well aware that by concealing facts ostensibly relating to national security from her counterpart in the new administrationGeneral Michael Flynnshe was, at a minimum, violating longstanding civic norms.
If she actually lied to Flynn, she could have been accused of much worse. So Rice wanted to be able to retrieve her email, if she found herself in a sticky situation, and tell the world that she hid relevant facts about Russia from the new administration on Barack Obamas orders.
What were the secrets that Obama wanted to keep from the new administration? We can easily surmise that the fact that the Steele memo was paid for by the Democratic Party; that the FBI had to some degree collaborated with Steele; that the Clinton campaign had fed some of the fake news in the dossier to Steele; and that Comeys FBI had used Steeles fabrications as the basis for FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign were among the facts that Obama and his minions didnt want Michael Flynn and Donald Trump to know. Susan Rice, we can infer, was told to keep these secrets, and if anyone ever asked why she had failed to disclose them to Michael Flynn and others on Trumps team, or even lied to those people, she would have the defense that President Obama ordered her to do it.
There may be more to it than this. The redacted paragraph likely contains more information about what it was that Rice wasnt supposed to tell the Trump team. One of these days, we will learn what was blacked out.
The fact that Michael Flynn was Susan Rices counterpart in the incoming administration may also be significant. We know that the FBI agents who interviewed General Flynneven Peter Strzok!reported that they didnt think he had lied about anything. And yet, Obamas DOJ and Bob Muellers investigationbasically a continuation of Obamas corrupt Department of Justice under another, less accountable namepersecuted Flynn to the point where he finally pled guilty to a single count of lying to the FBI in order, as he says, to end the madness and the financial drain.
Why were the Democrats so determined to discredit General Flynn? Perhaps because they wanted to pre-empt any outrage that may otherwise have followed on revelations that the Obama administrations National Security Advisor hid important facts from her successor during the transition, and may have lied to him about those facts, in violation of all American tradition.
Meadows, DeSantis, and Jordan, True Patriots all. They have some pull with Trump.
I would not be surprised if Trump unilaterally gives them the unredacted docs. His patience with Rosensessions and Wray must be pretty thin by now.
Trump especially does not like having to address the same problem several times. It keeps happening.
I will just say that President Trump has way more information on what is going on then any of us. So, I will trust his judgement.
