It was Congressional Democrats’ latest lame attempt to fire back.
But they ended up shooting themselves in the foot instead.
On Saturday, Democrats released their so-called “rebuttal” memo, to counter allegations that the Obama Administration abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to spy on Donald Trump’s campaign.
But the memo did A LOT more than that…
It inadvertently exposed a massive cover-up that will change FOREVER how you look at Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the Obama Justice Department.
And the mainstream media is REFUSING to cover it.
At the heart of the issue is the so-called “Trump Dossier.” This dossier, which contains scandalous and discredited allegations against Trump, was used to get FISA warrants to spy on his campaign.
We know now that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee secretly paid for the smear piece, and helped leak it to the FBI.
Trump and his fellow GOP members have long contended that the Obama Justice Department took the dossier to the FISA court without ever revealing that it was a political document.
Oh, not so, say Congressional Democrats in their new memo.
They’re ADMITTING they knew and told the FISA court that the Trump Dossier was a political hack-job created by Trump’s enemies.
Yes, you read that right. So, in a memo that was supposed to defend them, Democrats just admitted:
#1 They’ve known for months (maybe longer) that the Trump Dossier was a biased hit piece. This was even admitted to the FISA court. And yet Congressional Democrats played dumb, pretended it was an objective document, and even used it to open investigations and waste taxpayer resources.
#2 Hillary Clinton is a liar and a cover-up artist. Clinton has tried to distance herself from the Trump Dossier since Day One. Now even her fellow Democrats are acknowledging they know where the dossier came from – and it was from Clinton.
#3: Barack Obama and former FBI boss James Comey should be in jail. Democrats have admitted that the Obama Administration accepted a tainted political document funded by Clinton’s campaign, and used it to get permission to spy on her rival, Trump. This is unprecedented interference in the U.S. presidential election.
And, again, Democrats thought that this memo would exonerate them.
Better luck next time.
