#NotABot: Twitter Users Prove They Aren’t Bots — Call For Lawmakers to #ReleaseTheMemo
After Democratic lawmakers insulted half of America by declaring that the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag was just Russian bots — a new #NotABot hashtag went viral calling for the release of a memo that is alleged to outline surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign.
Do I look like a "Russian Bot" to you?

Dismissing the will of the people only strengthens our resolve to find the truth behind the corruption you’re hiding.
We aren’t bots. We’re concerned citizens you’ve failed to represent.

Your Russian bot conspiracy theories won't distract us from the 50,000 Strzok and Page texts or the bombshell memo.

The memo in question was drafted by Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) about alleged FISA abuses at the Department of Justice. It is said to implicate FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and former FBI Director James Comey and is based on classified material that was provided to the intelligence committee, which Nunes chairs.
