‘Info Suggests Documents Catastrophically Bad For Dems’: Leaks Dry Up After Adam Schiff Reviews FISA Abuse Proof

On Thursday, the House Intelligence Committee quietly voted to make available to fellow House members “a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program,” reports Fox News’ Chad Pergram.

With 435 House members, the likelihood of details from the memo leaking are high. And so are the stakes. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) voted against the motion after reviewing the memo last week. Is this why the leaks have all but dried up?

“Fox is told that while the Intel Cmte voted in favor of the Simpson transcript, Democrats blocked the release of other documents. The committee has also voted on a motion by Rep. Pete King (R-NY) to make available to all House members a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program,” tweeted Pergram.

Washington Examiner‘s Byron York called passage of the motion a “Major development.”

“Motion was approved on party-line vote. Info in report is classified, so report will be available for House members to read in secure room,” tweeted York.

Why is the motion passage so important?

Because the “Report contains answer to question of whether FBI/DOJ used Trump dossier to secure FISA warrant to spy on Americans, plus other issues. Now, whole House can know.”

Upon learning of Pergram’s report, Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist, tweeted “Blocking documents is a super weird thing to do if, as Democrats assert, all they want is transparency. What are they trying to hide?”

Davis then added, “Schiff and the rest of the House Intel Democrats saw the DOJ/FBI/FISA docs on the dossier over a week ago. The lack of any leaks plus their votes today to block release of that info suggest the documents are catastrophically bad for Dems.”

As reported by The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila, Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) recently told fellow Republicans he has seen evidence demonstrating clear “abuse” of government surveillance programs by the Justice Department and FBI.

Fox News host Sean Hannity has reported three separate sources confirmed to him the Russia dossier was used to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
