🚨FISA WATCH:🚨In the upcoming IG FISA report one highly anticipated item to watch for is the Nunes memo surrounding his removal from the committee Schiff now chairs. The memo relates to the initial discovery that U.S. intelligence was spying on Trump.

Thread (1/8) [cont...]
Nunes was removed as head of Schiff's committee for disclosing, what Democrats then falsely claimed was classified info (he was cleared), that U.S. intelligence was intercepting Trump communications as part foreign spying operations. Where is that info now? What was it?
(2/8)
Nunes: On the Intelligence collection “it appears most of this occurred, from what I’ve seen, in November, December, and January”. It's focus: “There was clearly significant information about President Trump and his team and there were additional names that were unmasked.”
