In the middle of exit handshaking, Trump drops bombshell on hot mic about FISA memo

President Trump will “100%” release the bombshell FISA memo reportedly detailing the surveillance abuses of the Obama FBI and DOJ.

Trump was overheard reassuring Congressman Jeff Duncan immediately after his triumphant State of the Union address inside the House Chamber.

“Let’s release the memo,” Duncan said to President Trump, who quickly replied: “Oh yeah. Don’t worry, 100 percent.”

Democrats like California representatives Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi have been apoplectic ever since Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee voted to release the memo chronicling widespread government surveillance abuses that resulted in the illegal spying-on of Trump campaign officials.

In the four-page memo, GOP lawmakers described the “alarming” and “shocking” abuses of the Obama FBI and DOJ to spy on Donald Trump when he was running for president against his pal, Hillary Clinton.

Republicans who read the memo say the Obama FBI and DOJ used the unverified, discredited “Trump dossier” to obtain a bogus FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant to illegally spy on Trump campaign officials.

Congressman Trey Gowdy — who was a federal prosecutor from 1994 to 2000 — said the FISA memo is “embarrassing” to Democrats because it shows the desperate lengths they went to hide how Obama abused and weaponized the FBI and the Department of Justice for political gain.

“My Democratic colleagues didn’t want us to find this information,” Gowdy told Fox News (video below). “They did everything they could to keep us from finding this information. It will be embarrassing to Adam Schiff once people realize the extent to which he went to keep them from learning any of this.”

Gowdy added: “If it were up to Adam Schiff, you wouldn’t know about Hillary Clinton’s email. You wouldn’t know about the server. You wouldn’t know about the [unverified, discredited Steele] dossier.”

Meanwhile, President Trump is riding high on the heels of his triumphant first State of the Union address, which drew widespread praise.

A staggering 97% of Republicans approved of Trump’s SOTU address, while a stunning 72% of Independents did, according to a CBS News poll. Meanwhile, 3 in 4 Americans approved of SOTU address.  “Resist” that, Dems.
