Am I alone in being mystified by this “seismic shift”?This was entirely predictable and simply reflects public opinion and the view of the Citizen’s Assembly.

More importantly, are we seriously going to believe Fianna Fáil, would have kept to any principles that might lose them votes in Dublin? Now that would be seismic.

All hell is breaking loose in Washington D.C. after a four-page memo detailing extensive FISA court abuse was made available to the entire House of Representatives last night.

The contents of the memo are so explosive, says Journalist Sara Carter, that it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice and the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation [into alleged Russia-Trump collusion].

Source close to the matter tells Fox News that “the memo details the Intelligence Committee’s oversight work for the FBI and Justice, including the controversy over unmasking and FISA surveillance.”

An educated guess by anyone who’s been paying attention for the last year leads to the obvious conclusion that the report reveals extensive abuse of power and highly illegal collusion between the Obama administration, the FBI, the DOJ and the Clinton Campaign against Donald Trump and his team during and after the 2016 presidential election.
