Adam Schiff is freaking out after House votes to release the memo, must be bombshell info on FBI and Democrats
The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.
The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said.
President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.
Representative Schiff is deeply saddened that a minority memo was not also released. He said it is a “deeply regrettable state of affairs. He also said this is what happens when you have a “deeply flawed President.”

The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.
Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump “dossier” played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.
Schiff said the GOP-majority committee also voted against releasing a counter memo written by Democrats.The vote by the House Intelligence Committee is the first step now Trump has to approve the DE-clasification of the memo.
“Today this committee voted to put the president’s personal interests, perhaps their own political interests, above the national interests,” the Democrat said.
The vote came on the same day that Deputy FBI Director Andrew Mccabe stepped down under pressure. The heat is about to come down big time on Mccabe, the Democrats and the Obama justice department. Somebody should watch Schiff tonight in case so he doesn’t harm himself.
