(Tea Party PAC) – Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Sean Hannity on Wednesday night that he has “finally” seen “scope memo” that Rosenstein issued authorizing Robert Mueller to initiate his two-year long witch hunt.
And it doesn’t look good for the Deep State.
Republican lawmakers in the House have been fighting fiercely for access to the unredacted scope memo.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has also sued to have the memo released.
This vital document sheds light on the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion delusion and the faulty basis for both spying on candidate Trump and investigating President Trump.
So far, only a heavily redacted version of the scope memo has been released to the public.
In August of 2017, Nunes had suggested that the “scope memo” written by then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein shows Hillary’s phony dossier permeated the special counsel investigation.
“Because ultimately that Steele dossier permeated all the way through, ultimately to the Special Counsel,” said Nunes. “And I’ll just close with this tonight — That is I was finally able to see the scope memo and remember, I had these concerns that it was based upon the Steele dossier.”
Nunes also said that he was unable to share what was in the scope memo because it’s still classified, but he suggested Hillary’s dossier formed a crucial part of the Mueller investigation.
Nunes continued, “And look, I can’t talk about what was in there but we know from the Mueller report, or from what Judge Sullivan put out that it was probably largely based on the Steele dossier.”
What is significant about this, of course, is that the Steele dossier has been widely discredited, even by the very agencies that used it as the basis for the FISA warrant that was used to spy on the Trump campaign.
We need to see the documents relating to this FISA application as well as this scope memo ASAP.
The American people deserve to know the truth about this multi-million dollar lawsuit!
