“Our republic is in jeopardy”
Congressman Matt Gaetz told Fox News this morning that the bombshell FISA abuse memo, which some claim could end the Mueller investigation and lead to top officials going to jail, is set to be released soon.
The classified Department of Justice memo is suspected to contain evidence of illegal FBI and DOJ spying on the Trump campaign at the behest of Hillary Clinton.
According to journalist Sara Carter, the memo is so “explosive” that it could lead to “the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.”
Numerous lawmakers are calling for the document to be publicly released, with Rep. Steve King describing it as “worse than Watergate”.
Appearing on Fox News, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who previously asserted that people will “go to jail” over the memo, suggested that the release of the document is on the horizon.
“Our republic is in jeopardy if we allow this type of a palace coup environment to continue to persist and that’s why I’m one of the members of Congress who will be encouraging today Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes to release the memo,” said Gaetz.
“We can have a vote in the Intelligence Committee, a vote in the full House of Representatives. And this is a matter of such importance that I think we need to do it immediately. If we get this memo into the public square heads are going to roll at the FBI and the Department of Justice.
“What I’m worried about is that the cast of characters in the memo are not a group of people that are gone. Many of these people are still in our government. They still wield influence. It’s easy to see after reading this memo why Senator Grassley and why Senator Graham wanted to refer this matter for criminal prosecution. Laws were broken.
“I have every confidence after speaking to Paul Ryan and Devin Nunes that after we go through the right procedures and provide notifications to the executive branch that we will release this memo.”
