#ReleaseTheMemo Trends as Public, Politicians Demand Transparency on FISA Memo

#ReleaseTheMemo was a trending Twitter topic on Thursday evening as public concern over alleged Obama-era abuse of government surveillance power mounted.

The hashtag quickly accumulated over 300,000 tweets, trending worldwide and in the United States.

Users took to social media to demand the release of a four-page memo currently circulating in Congress, allegedly revealing government surveillance abuses under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

Republican lawmakers have described the memo as “shocking” and “alarming.” Ohio Representative Jim Jordan said the American people “have to see this.”

Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry said, “You think about, ‘Is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is.”

Democrats colluded with Russia it failed so they lied and said trump did it. Luckily we have a fighter in office and he isn't going to quit.

Long ago, "we, the people" started letting our employees tell US what they would do or let us know about (for our own good).
You cheered like good ci-di-zens. They nodded in gleeful admiration at what they accomplished.
Then, they decided "we, the people" had too many rights and freedoms.
You STILL cheered.
Now, you reap the rewards and pay the price.
It is going to get a lot worse.
Keep cheering.....

Heard it is all about Obama. worse than Watergate. Calling it Obamagate.
It is classified so I'm sure the public won't see it.
