READ The Full House Intelligence Committee Memo On Surveillance Abuses

President Donald Trump declassified a four page memo written by the U.S. House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Friday morning on alleged government surveillance abuses during the 2016 U.S. Presidential Campaign.

President Donald Trump declassified a four page memo written by the U.S. House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Friday morning on alleged government surveillance abuses during the 2016 U.S. Presidential Campaign.

In summation, FBI and DOJ officials obtained a warrant from the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to spy on Trump campaign officials based on information from a dossier they knew was politically biased and orchestrated by the Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee with the assistance of a foreign spy without telling the court.

“I think it’s a disgrace what’s going on in our country,” President Trump said after declassifying the memo. “A lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and much worse than that.”

READ the full memo:

Here are some key points:

* The Steele dossier formed an essential part of the intial and all three renewal FISA applications against Carter Page.

* Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.

* The political origins of the Steele dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials, but excluded from the FISA applications.

* DOJ official Bruce Ohr met with Steele beginning in the summer of 2016 and relayed to DOJ information about Steele's bias. Steele told Ohr that he, Steele, was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected president and was passionate about him not becoming president.
