As president Donald Trump left last night’s State of the Union address, he was caught on a hot mic moment that should send shivers down the spines of leftists and the deep state. The president said he would 100% release the FISA memo.
Representative Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) approached Trump as he exited the House chamber following the State the Union address, and asked him to “release the memo.” Trump responded. “Don’t worry, 100 percent,” the president said with a wave of his hand.
The exchange was caught by television cameras filming the president after he delivered the address. The president’s comments also come as Congress awaits his decision on whether he will allow members to release the memo to the public, a question that has sharply divided lawmakers along party lines.
Speculation as to when the White House will release the memo following a vote to make it public by GOP lawmakers on Monday night. Many are suggesting that Trump wants the news cycle to focus on his speech until at least Thursday before there is any movement on the release of the memo.
The five-day deadline in which the memo has to be released ends on Saturday night. According to Info Wars, the classified Department of Justice memo is suspected to contain evidence of illegal FBI and DOJ spying on the Trump campaign, possibly at the behest of Hillary Clinton. According to journalist Sara Carter, the memo is so “explosive” that it could lead to “the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.”
According to the Washington Post, a White House spokesman confirmed early Wednesday that the administration’s official position is now that Trump will release the memo to the public. The simple fact that the Democrats and the FBI want this memo kept secret certainly makes everyone want to see it more.
The memo is said to suggest that British ex-spy Christopher Steele, the author of a now-famous dossier alleging Trump has ties to Russian officials, provided bad information to the FBI. Steele’s dossier work was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, and Trump has denied the allegations in it.
The very basic fact is that the left desperately wants this memo to remain a secret. That means, it should be released so the people can see for themselves that the mainstream media and Democrats have been lying to them to manipulate public opinion.
