This has been one of the odd aspects to the special counsel investigation deployed under the nameplate of Robert Mueller. However, with the trial of Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann bringing more curious minds to the backstories, here’s one that few people understand.You will remember the massive media debate in early 2018 about the FISA application deployed against former short-time Trump campaign aide Carter Page. The DOJ, at the time under the control of the Mueller special counsel for all things Trump-Russia related, wouldn’t let congress see the FISA application. Devin Nunes complained to House Speaker Paul Ryan.Eventually a deal was struck and two members from the House Intelligence committee (democrats and republicans) and two members from the House Judiciary Committee, were allowed to go to Main Justice and read the FISA application, but not copy it. Four congressmen were allowed to go read and take notes. Trey Gowdy and John Ratcliffe represented the two republicans, and their notes formed the basis for what later was called “The Nunes Memo.”
The Democrats were not happy with the claims in the Nunes memo, and subsequently HPSCI ranking member Adam Schiff wrote the democrat version.Most Don’t Know it Was Andrew Weissmann Who Publicly Released the Carter Page FISA Application, Even Fewer Know Why – The Last Refuge
As we know Schiff was[is]almost as big of a liar as Biden is. Remember when he was on every talk show time after time claiming he had evidence of Trump colluding with Russia. He never produced it and the media never questioned him. Remember Schiff claiming he had no contact with the Ukraine whistleblower and that turned out to be a lie. Why would anyone with a brain cell trust his memo? He was constantly pushing the Russia lie then the Ukraine lie. He had a vested interest in covering up for all the wrong doing (the infamous FISA app)including his own. Let’s be honest-every action of the Democrat party was to destroy the Trump administration and Pres. Trump personally.
