Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA) just released an “unredacted’ version of the FISA memo that has thrown Washington D.C. into turmoil.
The memo, addressed to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, shows more about the FBI’s relationship to Christopher Steele, the ex-Brit spy whose name is attached to the now-infamous anti-Trump dossier.
The side-by-side comparison of the earlier more redacted memo and the “unredacted” (technically, less redacted) memo is striking.
Twitter blogger @drawandstrike had snap analysis.
It looks like Hillary Clinton’s seedy associate Sidney Blumenthal’s name is coming up again and again.

I think we might be right about the Sid Blumenthal Cody Shearer (still) redactionshttps://t.co/9OBZY9nHih

Grassley's newly-declassified criminal referral on Steele indicates the ex-spy lied to FBI about his media contacts.

It may very well be the case that Hillary Clinton commissioned the opposition research via Sidney Blumenthal and Shearer, who then used ex-Brit spy Christopher Steele as a “cut-out” to append his name to the “dossier” and then it was dropped to Yahoo! News editor Michael Isikoff. After Buzzfeed latched onto it and published it “as is” with the fairly obvious aim of steering the election, the toothpaste was out of the tube. It’s a despicable mess, now let’s hope we get to the bottom of it.
