Freedom Caucus Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC11) & Jim Jordan (R-OH04) want Jeff Sessions to resign so they can kill Mueller's TrumpRussia investigation.

Presumes a backroom deal w/ Trump.
Rep. Jim Jordan (former Chair of House Freedom Caucus): "Everyone knows this Dossier is garbage."

Everyone except the FBI, Congressional Intel Cmte's, US Intel, FISA judges, Sater, Sergei, RUSSIA, Trump, etc.

First SIGINT portions corroborated Feb17.

3Jan18: FusionGPS NYT Op-Ed calls on Senate Judiciary Cmte to release testimony transcripts.

5Jan18: Grassley and Graham refer Steele for criminal probe, citing inconsistent statements—NOT inconsistent claims in Dossier.

Will this force the release of FusionGPS testimony? Maybe.

But it definitely means precedent has been set whereby the same criminal referral can be extended to Donald Trump Jr, who likely has a few "inconsistencies" in his 9-hour testimony to Sen Judiciary Cmte on 14Dec17.
Trump and Sessions set the beat; the freedom caucus marches to it.

This is why DirFBI Wray is at the end of his rope.
House Freedom Caucus briefed Trump on FBI surveillance memo concocted by GOP House Intel staffers *before* GOP campaign to "Release The Memo" began.

Nunes still coordinating release while GOP, Fox News, & Russia bots amplify the FBI "conspiracy."

#ObstructionOfJustice Tuesday.
Senator Ron Johnson (WI) drops blockbuster! "Secret society" of FBI agents are working to take Trump down!!

—Not to steal his thunder, but I can confirm:
950 Pennsylvania Ave NW
(Room B103)
Washington DC 20530

(Office of Special Counsel Mueller)
Comrade Lou Dobbs of state broadcasting affiliate Fox Business denounces Deep State DOJ for orchestrated subversion of Trump, suggests outright War on FBI is imminent.
McCabe announced in Dec 2017 that he'd retire in March 2018 (eligibility date for federal employment benefits).

Trump knew this.

11am EST: DOJ/FBI review Nunes memo.
5pm EST: House Intel Cmte vote on whether to declassify Nunes memo.
Put a pin in this 📍

Careful wording by Sarah Sanders today (if not outright lie): "No one at the White House has actually *seen* the [Nunes] memo."

Multiple House Reps & WH aides already confirmed Trump was briefed on memo details & pushed for #ReleaseTheMemo public campaign.
So here's where we're at with #ReleaseTheMemo:

Trump wants the Nunes memo published ASAP(!)... Even though Trump claims he hasn't seen it and won't allow DOJ routine opportunity to review it.

(Nunes' FBI surveillance memo will hit the internet in no sooner than 7 days).
Summary of votes in House Intel Committee this evening.

1 Declassify Nunes memo.
2 Release memo to White House.
3 Bury Dem rebuttal memo.
4 Reject Dir Wray "fact" corrections.
5 Investigate DOJ/FBI for anything.
6 Goose-step over Russia probe.
*Crush prosecutorial independence.
So Nunes' spokesman says Nunes' staff only made minor edits to Nunes' memo which Nunes didn't read.

"Major edits" after Cmte vote can delay Trump release, but won't stop it—remember: no one on HPSCI but Schiff & Gowdy actually reviewed memo before releasing it anyway.
It's "official"—Trump read the Nunes memo before Nunes read the Nunes memo.

(Nunes will get a chance to read the redacted Nunes memo that the White House just returned to the House Intel Cmte today 🙄).
