For the past few weeks, a memo purported to show FISA abuses against President Trump has been circulating around Congress.
That four page memo was just declassified today.
And what is inside is so shocking that it could send some Democrats to prison.
The memo reveals that the fake news Fusion GPS dossier was used to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Fox News has learned that testimony from a high-ranking government official stating that without the infamous, and false, Trump-Russia dossier, the FBI and DOJ would not have secured surveillance warrants to spy on Trump’s campaign.
It also claims the DOJ and DBI used reports coming from the media to make the dossier seem credible.

This was done after the firm behind the dossier, Fusion GPS, briefed multiple American news outlets, including The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, The New Yorker, Yahoo, and Mother Jones.
And just to drop more proof at the political motivation of the dossier, the memo also reveals that British Spy Christopher Steele had a personal animus for President Trump, and continued to pass information through the Justice Department, even after being cut off from the FBI.
As reported by Fox News:
“A memo that is purported to show government surveillance abuse and was at the center of an intense power struggle between congressional Republicans and the FBI has been declassified ahead of its expected release later Friday, Fox News has learned.
According to sources, the memo includes testimony from a high-ranking government official that without the infamous Trump dossier, the FBI and DOJ would not have secured surveillance warrants to spy on at least one member of the Trump team.
It also claims the FBI and DOJ used media reporting to lend credibility to the dossier, while the firm behind the dossier, Fusion GPS, briefed major American news outlets to include New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, New Yorker, Yahoo and Mother Jones.
The memo shoes that after former British spy Christopher Steele was cut off from the FBI, he continued to pass information, as did Fusion GPS, through Justice Department Official Bruce Ohr. Ohr’s wife Nellie began working for Fusion GPS as early as May 2016.
It also claims evidence that Steele has a personal animus for the President Trump.
The impending release of the four-page memo comes after the House Intelligence Committee voted earlier this week, over Democratic objections, to make the document public. This led to a rare and stunning rebuke from the bureau, which said Wednesday they had “grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”
According to Fox News’ Catherine Herridge, the memo shows the infamous dossier compiled by Fusion GPS and paid for by the Clinton campaign was used by the FBI to obtain a FISA warrant on members of the Trump campaign.”
Now that the memo has been fully released, bombshells are dropping across Washington.
The memo revealed the DOJ official Bruce Ohr – whose wife worked for Fusion GPS – briefed the FBI on her anti-Trump research.
This is beyond shocking. It is so much worse than what anyone who has followed this story expected. pic.twitter.com/pfRuCSqKMH

The investigation into Trump was a politically motivated hit job orchestrated by Hillary Clinton and her partisan cheerleaders at the FBI and Department of Justice.
