In an attempt to distract from the devastatingly damaging proof of corruption and the weaponization of the FBI and DOJ under the Obama administration, two top Democrats, Rep. Adam Schiff and Senator Dianne Feinstein have initiated a campaign to silence Americans that are demanding the release of a four-page memo compiled by the House Intelligence Committee that purportedly details FISA abuses during the Obama presidency, in an apparent attempt to destroy a newly elected president.
QUICK RECAP - FISA ABUSE MEMO
ANP has been covering the tidal wave of information that has been coming out over the last week, starting with the House Intelligence Committee vote to release a classified four-page memo to the full 435 members of the House of Representatives, with all Democrats on the committee voting to withhold it from their fellow lawmakers. Republicans voted to release it.
Immediately after House members saw the classified memo from a highly secured room, they immediately started demanding the release to the general public, claiming the abuses under the Obama administration were comparable to the KGB, calling them "explosive," and "disturbing," and "jaw-dropping," stating they believe the information should lead to arrests and show criminal behaviors on the part of the FBI and DOJ, in which the #ReleaseTheMemo campaign began.
#WEARENOTBOTS - TOP DEMS ACCUSE ANGRY AMERICANS OF BEING RUSSIAN BOTS
As has become the pattern over the last year, every time something highly damaging comes out about Obama era abuses of our top intelligence agencies, top Democratic politicians start screaming "RUSSIA!!!!"
After the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag went viral across social media platforms, the NeverTrump website Hamilton 68, along with the MSM, offered Democrats yet another "blame Russia" lifeline by claiming that "Russian-linked" bots were pushing the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag, and immediately Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff and Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein published a letter they sent to Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter's Jack Dorsey, demanding reports on "Russian" activity on the social media platforms in regards to the viral hashtags associated with the demands to release the memo to the public.
Make no mistake, this was the Democrats attempt to silence Americans demanding the release of the information that shows high levels of corruption within U.S. intelligence agencies, and it took less than a day for the Twitter analysis to be reported saying it was Americans, inside of America, and not Russian bots that provided the impetus that made #ReleaseTheMemo to go viral.
A knowledgeable source says that Twitter’s internal analysis has thus far found that authentic American accounts, and not Russian imposters or automated bots, are driving #ReleaseTheMemo. There are no preliminary indications that the Twitter activity either driving the hashtag or engaging with it is either predominantly Russian.
In short, according to this source, who would not speak to The Daily Beast for attribution, the retweets are coming from inside the country.
Not only did their attempt to convince Americans that Russian were behind the #ReleaseTheMemo campaign backfire, but outraged Americans decided to stand up and speak out loudly, by starting a #WeAreNotBots campaign, which included publishing Rep. Schiff's DC phone number (202-225-4176) and Senator Feinstein's phone number (415-393-0707) while asking users to call and let these two top Democrats that attempted to accuse angry Americans of being Russia bits that #WeAreNotBots.
It is clear why top Democrats are trying to distract from the memo, and the newly released information aside from the much-talked about memo that top Republicans are working to get released to the public, includes fives critical months of missing texts between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, both virulently anti-Trump and pro-Clinton, who had previously discussed the Russia probe as an "insurance policy" against a Donald Trump presidency, while Strzok played key roles in exonerating Hillary Clinton and initiating the Russia/Trump investigation.
Newly released texts speak of a "secret society" within the FBI, and now Senator Ron Johnson has stated that an "informant" has come forward with information about how that FBI/DOJ "secret society" had secret meetings "off-site."
While Johnson says now they need to investigate what the new informant is telling them, this seems to be a huge break for Republicans that have been insisting the American people deserve to know the truth of what went on within these intelligence agencies during the 2016 election campaign season and after the election in an attempt to destroy President Trump.
If they have an informant who is aware of these "secret meeting off-site" by this "secret society," it is quite possible and perhaps even likely that this is someone that was part of that "secret society," because generally people don't tell those not in-the-loop of things that are supposed to be secret. This could mean that the heat has been turned up so high, someone decided to come forward to offer a deal so that they would not go down with the others.
We'll keep our eyes on this for new information.
Another new tidbit comes by way of The Federalist, as they report that in a telephone conversation with Daniel Richman, the man former James Comey provided with his memos of his conversations with President Trump with a request to "leak" them to the press in order to spur a special counsel to be named in the Russian collusion investigation, now claims he is acting as Comey's attorney. Very convenient as now Richman can assert attorney-client privilege to avoid testifying against Comey.
All this information has come to light in just the past week, showing that finally the pressure has gotten so bad, the revelations have been so devastating, that the damn is finally breaking.
The sheer desperation on the part of the NeverTrump Hamilton site, as well as top Democrats in the face of the tidal wave aimed straight at them, their whole Russia collusion hoax, the former Obama administration and all the corrupt members of the FBI and DOJ that used their positions of power to weaponize their agencies against a political opponent, and then against the duly-elected President of the United States of America, is clear for everyone to see, yet the media continues to try to protect them.
Trump supporters have been called a number of names, most famously "deplorables," but now top Democrats have sunken to a new low by attempting to claim that "we the people," demanding transparency, fighting for our right to see corrupt deep state members exposed, are Russian bots, in their Nazi-like attempt to censor and silence angry Americans.
