A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.

The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive ‘FISA Abuse’ related to the controversial dossier available to all House members. The report contains information regarding the dossier that alleges President Trump and members of his team colluded with the Russians in the 2016 presidential election. Some members of the House viewed the document in a secure room Thursday.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., offered the motion on Thursday to make the Republican majority-authored report available to the members.

“The document shows a troubling course of conduct and we need to make the document available, so the public can see it,” said a senior government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the document. “Once the public sees it, we can hold the people involved accountable in a number of ways.”
The government official said that after reading the document “some of these people should no longer be in the government.”

The document also apparently outlines “several problematic” issues with how FISA warrants were “packaged, and used” state several sources with knowledge of the report.

Over the past year, whistleblowers in the law enforcement and intelligence community have revealed to Congress what they believe to be extensive abuse with regard to FISA surveillance, as previously reported. 

The dossier was used in part as evidence for a warrant to surveil members of the Trump campaign, according to a story published this month. Former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier in 2016, was hired by embattled research firm Fusion GPS. The firm’s founder is Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who has already testified before Congress in relation to the dossier. In October, The Washington Post revealed for the first time that it was the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC that financed Fusion GPS.

Congressional members are hopeful that the classified information will be declassified and released to the public.

“We probably will get this stuff released by the end of the month,” stated a congressional member, who asked not to be named.

But the government official, who viewed the document said “it will be tough for a lot of people to see this and especially the media, which has been attempting to deemphasize the dossier. It’s going to punch a hole in their collusion narrative.”

The House vote to make the report available to all members is a major step in exposing the long-guarded classified documents obtained by the House Intelligence Committee over the past year. It allows members of the House to view the report and could quickly lead to a motion to declassify the report for the public, numerous House members told this reporter.

“It’s a (House Intelligence) committee document that deals with the assessment on the Department of Justice, FBI and the oversight work that is being conducted by the committee,” said a congressional source, which spoke on condition that they not be named.

  1. Great reporting Sara. This information MUST be made available to the American people to help restore faith in our system of government. People must be held accountable and go to jail. The MSM will then be forced to report the facts and stop covering up the corruption.

    • Heh. MSM won’t report a thing, Dems will take the house and the whole thing will be swept into the same black hole as the shooter at the Republican congressional baseball practice fell into.

      Republicans better remember to vote this November. Even if the R congressional reps suck.

  2. Hope they go after Obama and Clinton HARD for they pay-to-play operation and 501c abuses. Americans need restored faith in their govt. All those that involved need to fall like dominos.

  3. What happens though, if the government goes into shutdown mode? Do investigations and things like that stop? Would that explain why the Dems are so eager to shut it down?

  4. It will be too late once Mueller takes Trump out. I am tired of talk, what can people do to get this out, actually start firing people, charging people? If Hillary won…. good lord that is a scary thought. This would be the new normal. Why is this not all over the news?

  5. Nice work Sara!!! Gotta admit, I wasn’t on board with the weekend reporting of the trial balloon (Hillary duped by gps), but for all intents and purposes, sara and solomon have been on point, and exactly what/how REAL news should be reported.

  6. Sara, remember Samantha Power when asked about over 100 “unmaskings”? She said she did not ask for any of them. No warrants requested under her name, no files opened. She was very credible, and it really is not her MO.
    So who asked for them? Why? Who were the targets? Who signed the affidavits? Who was copied?
    I suspect we are seeing the fruition of the corruption introduced by Bill Clinton, in slight hiatus under Bush, and blossomed under Obama, Holder and Clinton. Remember, Holder is a lot closer to Clinton than he is even to Obama.
    There is good reason to believe the FBI/DOJ is corrupt from top to bottom. Involved in all aspects of government and private business. I am talking about corruption in the courts, money laundering, corrupt investigations and extortion. Gun running to extorting millions from banks and financial institutions.

    • Expert textpert choking smokers
      Don’t you think the joker laughs at you?
      See how they smile like pigs in a sty
      See how they snide
      I’m crying

  7. Great job Sara ! Also look at Peter Strzok wife she works at US Federal Securities assistant director. Bet they also recruited her to get financial s on !!
    Love your honesty and the true facts !

  8. You Rock Sara…..UNBELIEVABLE!!! The state of our government is sickening. If Clinton had been elected no one would have never known. In a time were I cant stand reporters you are a beacon of light….

  9. I enjoy Sara’s work on TV, she is like a pit bull.

    I just read Sara’s background.

    Her dad is a Marine, and her mother is Cuban.

    The Democrats and crooked FBI leaders are F**ked. They don’t stand a chance.

    I’m going to make a popcorn run to Costco NOW! I don’t want to miss the fireworks.

  10. Is there any wonder now why the democrats and the main stream news have been relentlessly attacking President Trump.
    Hillary said if Trump wins they’ll all hang
    DOJ needs to have passports revoked and seized to prevent flight risk.
    Remember, I think it was South Korea arresting their Female President, we’ll get ready.
    We want the truth

  11. Comment: ROSENSTEIN WIFE IS THE CLINTON FOUNDATION, MULLER, BILL AND HILLARY, MULLER, COMEY, AND OBAMA PERSONEL ATTORNEY FOR OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS REPRESENTED THEM OVER 160 TIMES. HOW DOES THAT NOT MAKE ROSENSTEING HAVE TO RECUSE HIMSELF WHEN HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE INVESTIGATING THEM. ALSO DURING THE HAITI CLINTON FOUNDATION CORRUPTION SCANDAL CLINTON AND BUSH SEND A CHECK OF 37 MIL DOLLARS TO A PO BOX AND SOMEHOW ROSEDSTIEN LET IT GO DURRING THE INVESTIGATION THAT HE WAS INCHARGE OF AND HIS WIFE HAD JUST REPRESENTED THE CLINTONS. HAVE DOCUMENTS TO PROVE ALL

  12. If administration officials were so blatant about what they did in relation to FISA warrants issued in the Trump situation, then one has to wonder what was happening to citizens in cases where there was little chance of being found out. I mean, if in going after Trump they were willing to do these things in the obvious hope that HRC won and no one would be the wiser, what were they doing to the little guy?

    • “If administration officials were so blatant about what they did in relation to FISA warrants issued in the Trump situation, then one has to wonder what was happening to citizens in cases where there was little chance of being found out.”

      What they did to “the little guy”, as you put it was less direct but far, far, far worse.

      They have destroyed utterly the form of government that many of us have cherished throughout our lives. Perhaps our love of this country was a childish illusion, but if so, the illusion is shattered. The FBI, the Do”J”, the IRS, will never recover. The FISA warrant is but a small slice of the deep and wide malignant corruption. Like a bone marrow biopsy showing a horrible malignancy, the FISA crimes convince us that the entire body politic is incurably afflicted.

      While some may claim that the more junior field agents are “good”, we will never believe it. They have stood by silently while the cancer of corruption spread. They stand silently by yet today. Locked arm in arm in silent brotherhood, there are literally thousands of others in the DOJ, BATF, IRS, EPA, and countless other agencies who know.

      They KNOW of the corruption. They KNOW of the cancer. For many, their rabid ideology justifies every act, ANY act that furthers their unspoken cause. For others, they cannot or will not brook the loss of steady income, health insurance, and retirement plans. They salve their shoddy consciences with rationalizations – “What can I do, I’m only one man.” “Everybody is doing it.” “You can’t fight the system.” “I’ve got a wife and kids, I OWE it to them to not rock the boat.”

      The little guys, you and I, have little to fear that our phone conversations or text messages are being eavesdropped. Our fate is worse. We are forced to watch while our revered institutions are pulled down into the filth of criminality. Even the unserious “investigations” are mostly behind closed doors. Most of what we learn about illegal leaks comes from… illegal leaks.

      Trump cannot or will not stop it. Sessions has not been seen in months. Even the Congressional committees are laughable. Doomed, we are.

      • it breaks the heart and turns every real citizen into a wretched cynic.
        it is nothing less than watching the slow, agonizing death of a loved one.

    • It can’t come out soon enough for me. Thank You Sarah! You truly are a gift from God. Please be careful and may God bless you always. #releasethememo

  13. Yes it is sad that our cherished foundations and institutions are crumbling. The issue is however those cherished institutions depended upon a system of checks and balances that have been corrupted or neutered . This also depends upon a people of a nation that is just and and know the difference between moral right and wrong not the anything goes and if it feels good do it flesh antics.
    An ignorant population ( much less a WILLING ignorant population ) has never been nor indeed can ever be free. When law and rights are slight of hand changed into statutes, codes, policy and privileges, a Democratic Republic cannot long endure. Those that enrich themselves pandering to emotional wrecks of a generation of substandard child rearing are more than happy to sit in the shadows endorsing still more ignorance and suffering. Such are the following and their pendulum opposites.
    The socialist / communist party has never gained traction in this nation until now by stealth and deception along with programmed ignorance, they usurped the Democratic party and now have streets full of useful idiots on one side and a statist (Tory) tyranny on the extreme right both being led by fear and both hating real patriots of this nation. Incapable of divorcing their emotions from critical thinking they are quick to flock to the psychopaths that see the situation and are quick to take advantage of it for profit.
    Enriching themselves at the expense of their fellow countrymen these are those who always seem to survive the lamp posts having swinging corpses on them.
    They are looting the ship now and scurrying to hide behind hired guns,rules and regulations having only the color of law but more than safe from the ignorant ,bas driven instant gratification types.
    Get a lot of blankets and popcorn to watch the rot be cleared out of the system. Take care of you, yours, and your neighbor if you even know their name ?
    God be with us.

  14. You are to be commended for a job well done. American people needed this, for the truth to be exposed, and to FINALLY hold people accountable regardless of who they are. No one should be above the law. Thank you again for your hard work

  15. If this is indeed so, the perpetrators ought to be prosecuted and serve time. If this is so, we need to know who in the congress are blocking a more general release. What did they know and when did they know it? Why are we not being more fully informed? Classification to avoid embarrassment is illegal.

  16. Fantastic work Sara! Had it not been for your diligence in uncovering the lawlessness in our government, this would have never come to light! The cowards that knew covered their backside, now #release the documents for the American People to see and don’t withhold a thing!!

  17. Trump IS our voice. If they muzzle him we’ll have to stand up. Life won’t be so easy then.

    Thanks for your diligent efforts Sara Carter.

  18. Next week when the details of this spy novel finally come to light……

    Remember the part that Devin Nunes played in all of this. The guy could of cut & run when they tried to slander him with the ethics probe, but he stood his ground and is probably the #1 factor in why all of this is being forced into the light.

    Dilly Dilly to you fine sir.

    As for Adam Schiff……..
    That guy has been wittingly selling snake oil on every TV station everyday. The guy should hang for the way he tried to shield this investigation from the light.

    • Showing my age, but I remember as a young child, for God knows, what reason, watching the Watergate Hearings with great interest. Remember it was that event, and those hearings / revelations that really changed the tide in this country of what we thought about our government.

      I can only pray that we have similar, PUBLIC hearings on this espionage – because THIS, not “Russian collusion” is the TRUE scandal, and when combined with F&F, IRS Targeting, sicking DOJ on Fox News, truly shows the degree to which the Obama administration WEAPONIZED all the various government forces to promotes his agenda which was so destructive to this country.

      Obama was the WPIH, now beating Jimmy Carter by light years, and it would appear that his LEGACY will be lies, obfuscation, and treason. . .

      We’ll see how WaPo and NYT cover this, with the same rigor they did Watergate and the Pentagon Papers (and there will be far less digging to do – it’s there for all to see, just NOT ignore!)

      Thank YOU Sara Carter!

  19. I guess the only question is, how will the media react when all this comes out? Will they report it as significant, and a major scandal, or as a distraction from Russia Trump collusion? I think the later, simply because their hatred for Trump has completely demolished all sense of real journalism…..

    • I hate to be a party pooper but based on past experience, the media will pretend that this never happened and move on with the narrative that Trump is mentally unfit for office, Trump’s doctor lied about his phyical, the Democrats will win back both houses in November because Trump is such a pig, etc. The media is morally bankrupt so I don’t expect any fair or balanced reporting on FISA abuses by the Obama regime.

      • Sadly, I too believe nothing will come of this. We have been down this road too many times to not know where the road ends. Even if they do cover it, they will have some sort of outrageous spin that justifies all the FISA abuse. if so, I predict the latest info we are hearing fits this narrative – it will be they felt justified to get the FISA because some Russian “source” told Steele that Trump was being blackmailed by the Russians. Of course they can’t reveal the”credible” source because supposedly “people are being killed by the Russians” who are associated with this dossier. What a load of crap! Sarah has done such an amazing job – couldn’t have done any better but unfortunately, Washington, DC is a swamp and the Liberals and activist media still own and control the narrative. Makes me very angry and also sad for our country.

  20. May all who are looking for truth find it. May they commit their efforts to the Lord and become successful in exposing all the corruption. May the American people stop and have open eyes to see and ears to hear all the evidence. I pray in Jesus name AMEN!

  21. Sara,
    I commend you on your tenacious reporting of this travesty. I appreciate the way you conduct yourself in public. You are a class act. I have no doubt that if the political parties were reversed in this story that you would be just as aggressive. That is true journalism and you can be proud that you are one of the few journalists left. Thank you, from a citizen of this great country.

  22. From beginning to end, this Russian dossier document was nothing more than an orchestrated and well funded political smear against President Donald J. Trump by the Hillary Clinton Campaign.

    We now have to wait to see whether the smear was aided and abetted by the Obama Administration’s politically weaponized DOJ & FBI or were the two government agencies simply naive dupes in the unfolding constitutional crisis?

    Either answer is going to prove unsettling for all of us.

  23. Sara, you are our shining light and all the fake news journalists should try to be as honest and truthful as you are. I salute for your hard work and your bravery in reporting this. I hope the magnitude of these wrongful acts will awaken the American public. Devin Nunes is to be congratulated for his stand and his willingness to process this mess and expose it for what was really behind the Russiagate nonsense.Hopefully, those responsible for this will be held accountable. God Bless you Sara and keep up the good, no great, work.

  24. I am so depressed by these nonstop waves of corruption news over the past year alone. I have serious doubts the US can ever recover from evil people who are so deeply entrenched in the federal government. Many states are just as bad. I am grateful for your reporting. There seems to be very few like you or as successful as you. And that’s what worries me. There doesn’t seem to be any real courageous investigative reporters any more. God bless you & keep you safe

  25. Thank you, Sara Carter! It is appalling that the MSM is not reporting on this. Sara has been on this for months, and has been relentless in her investigation and reporting. She is the Woodward and Bernstein of our time. I hope she receives the accolades she has earned for her hard and courageous work.

  26. I cant believe so many idiots are falling for this nonsense. When was the last time one of these crooks actually went to jail? This is part of the dog-and-pony show that perpetuates the illusion of us having a functioning justice system, and that these crooks are actually subject to being punished by it.
    I think you’re only believing this charade because you’re afraid to accept the truth of what needs to be done to save this country. Crooked judges and corrupt politicians aren’t going to do it.

  27. Thank you Sara Carter for your work. This is the biggest story of the last 30 years, and we all have an imperative to find the truth. When I enlisted in 2003, I took the same oath that members of congress do – to protect our nation against enemies both foreign and domestic, and defend the Constitution. I know 15 brothers who paid the ultimate price in service to our country and their oath. The ideals set out in our founding documents that we all strive for are what makes this country great – that, and the people who believe in them and are willing to fight for them. What has transpired in the last year and 1/2 in the DOJ/FBI, and Clinton campaign are direct attempts to subvert and bring down our great Republic. We used to call that treason. It sickens me to see members of Congress try to bury this, and I look forward to a full accounting. Thank you so much for shining the light on this issue.

  28. Thank you, Sara. One minor criticism: To improve your first impressions with first-time visitors like me, please consider running your stories by a copy editor. I nearly quit after the first sentence due to the missing comma. There were other minor English problems later that gave me that “second-rate” feeling—conflicting with the first-rate content. Best wishes. Keep up the great work.

  29. Why would the idea that the FBI may have used the dossier as part of a surveillance warrant at all interesting or relevant to anything. The police routinely use criminal sources to get warrants.How is this any different. It would appear that the only thing one can learn from the type of claim sara carter is making is that sara is a dishonourable lying piece of filth without anything remotely resembling integrity.

    • No. Police do not routinely rely upon uncorroborated (let alone false) reports to obtain a warrant. Upon getting a tip, they conduct their own surveillance or interviews to verify what the informant said. Do you really think that – if I call in a tip – the police run to the court house?

  30. BINGO.

    Don’t think there haven’t been casualties already….think of all the white people beaten or murdered in the name of “little 10 year old Trayvon” “Tray-Tray”, Mike Brown, “hands up don’t shoot” which never happened….BLM and antifa terrorists killing cops & citizens because they ARE cops OR white….

    Throwing rocks & bottles at old people standing in line to hear candidate Trump speak….despiccable.

    Right now Sara Carter, FAUX NEWZ has this story buried, about to fall off the page….while the shutdown & other frills take center stage on their web site.

    Don’t let FOX News co-opt you, Sara Carter.

    Don’t let them outfox you, Sara Carter. It’s a haven for Deep State Never Trumper PROPAGANDA.

    Pursue this story like a bulldog in heat.

  31. I want to see it all. Probably spend next 20 years sifting through boxes of info. likely 20 yrs of perps running for Qatar or Paraguay

  32. Ms, Carter, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your’s and John Solomann’s FANTASTIC REPORTING!!… I do not have Twitter or Facebook so I am just adding my “RELEASE THE FISA MEMO” to you. Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, I watch you on Fox all the time to get the updates!!

  33. So, a year or so ago when Trump said his “wires were tapped” he, again, was correct…. yet all of the liberal MSM laughed at him… it will be fun to see who has the last laugh on this one. 🙂

    • Yes, since 9/11 and the Patriot Act, we have been monitoring conversations with our adversaries, and those who call them. This is standard NSA actions

      • The difference in your analysis, TheDanimal, is that American Citizens in those conversations are masked, and only in the interest of national security, can their names be unmasked, and only by a high level NSA official.

    • November 17, 2016 Admiral Mike Rogers (NSA) goes around his boss James Clapper (DNI) and visits the President-elect in Trump Tower.
      November 18, 2016 transition team moves to a Trump property in New Jersey.
      Eventually it will come out. Rogers gave the President a heads-up that big brother was listening!

  34. I’ve suspected since the beginning, that this was a setup by the Obama administration. The Day President Trump won the nomination is more than likely the day they and the Clinton campaign/DNC began trying to find waus to assassinate his character, much like democrats did to Barry Goldwater. in my opinion, Vladimir Putin didn’t care who won the election all he wanted was chaos. Furthermore, he more than likely would have preferred a Hillary Clinton presidency as he knows her Tendencies and political stances both domestic and foreign. Not to mention he had the dirt on her from Rosatom deal for uranium, which was actually a large scale bribe to have him on board with the Iran nuclear deal. We the people want our pound of flesh for their malfeasance.

    • Linda: go to:

      They are good at showing connections. I took their info ~3 weeks ago and drew out my own diagram of the 8 different agencies of gov’t involved and who was responsible for each action and who was head of that group at the time and the relationships. I refer to it often when I read an article now. It gives a visual snapshot of who’s who.
      However, it took me ~2 hours of reading, studying and documenting to get it all straight–another reason why the mainstream media will not be covering it b/c it is so complicated. Best of luck!

  35. One, declassify everything in this investigation, not just this one memo.
    Two, repeal the vast surveillance authority of who-knows-who in the federal government.
    If we know anything, it is that ALL powers granted to the government will be abused.

  36. When you “know” that you are going to win an election, you might become careless and neglect to cover your tracks, because why would you investigate yourself? The great Trump surprise amounted to turning on the light and watching the roaches scramble for cover.

  37. Keep in mind the first indictment of the Uranium One scandal has hit. It contains ACTUAL crimes not procedural crap. It charges a guy with the same street address as the centerpiece company involved in the scandal as consistently stated in news, books, and whistler blowers contend.

  38. Sounds hopeful but I’ll believe it when I see it! The media and most of congress is owned by the liberals. This has been a coup attempt

    • No proof. No evidence. After over a year of unobstructed investigation.
      Hillary is the one who ‘laundered money’ through the Clinton Foundation.
      We know for sure that Hillary ‘laundered’ over $10 million in undisclosed campaign fund expenditures through her lawyers to buy the phony dossier filled with Russian disinformation.
      Money laundering, violations of FEC laws and REAL collusion with Russia.

    • How exactly does one as ill informed, gullible and easily led by anti American leftists, as yourself, remember to breathe from one minute to the next.

  39. I don’t think it has been emphasized enough that the FISA warrant didn’t begin Obama’s political espionage operation but was used to RETROACTIVELY authorize a political espionage campaign which according to journalist Bill Robinson began in SUMMER 2015 when Trump first declared his candidacy.

    Mr Robinson, writing in the ‘Constitution’ blog and citing numerous first-hand intelligence sources, said that Obama, Hillary and key Cabinet and intelligence officials specifically ordered a full-press political espionage operation aimed, not at ‘the Russians’ but at the entire Trump campaign, his staff and even their families.

    There is much more: https://constitution.com/espionage-obama-team-almost-stole-american-presidency/

  40. How about #WethePeople DEMAND those papers NOW? Who in the HELL is so important in the House of Representatives that they can prohibit the release of critical information being released to OTHER HOUSE MEMBERS and the AMERICAN PUBLIC???? This is an outrage!!!! We should be marching in the streets at this point. Who in the HELL do those people think they work for? The Rothschilds, Saudis, and Soroses? +++ I guess they MUST work for them because they sure as HELL don’t work for the AMERICAN citizens who deserve the F’ing TRUTH.

  41. The announcement of the existence of this memo equates in some respects to when the New York Times published the news that one of the Watergate burglars (E. Howard Hunt) had a White House ID card in his wallet when he was arrested. It didn’t become a national cynosure right away, but it was the spark that lit the Watergate scandal up. This has the potential to be not only a scandal but a major crisis. It may become the biggest scandal in U.S. history, rendering the Teapot Dome scandal, Watergate and others of that ilk into inconsequential ignominy.

  42. Riiiight. A ‘memo’ crafted by criminals trying to cover their asses.

    The Republicnts have accepted so much Russian money that their eyes are turning red. At this stage the GOP will do and say anything to quash this investigation because the alternative is treason charges and possible prison time.

    • No proof, no evidence and no credibility.
      After over two full years of intensive, intentional and illegal political espionage and phony investigations based on it by the TOP MEN AND WOMEN in the Obama Administration there has been precisely ZERO evidence of any improper contact between anyone in the Trump campaign OR administration and ‘the Russians’.
      OTOH Hillary is up to her neck in money laundering, dirty tricks, serial lying and REAL collusion with ‘the Russians’. How else can you explain concealing over $10 million in campaign expenditures from the FEC by labeling it ‘legal fees’ to buy a phony ‘dossier’ from ‘the Russians’?
      Hillary and Obama USED Russian disinformation, knowing its source, to justify a massive political espionage operation against an American citizen and opposition Presidential candidate. That, my friend, IS ‘collusion’.
      At the same time Obama instructed TOP FBI OFFICIALS to obstruct justice by fixing an investigation into Hillary’s massive compromise of huge amounts of classified material.
      Want proof? Release the memo and all the supporting intelligence. You do want the truth, do you? Hm?
