"Patriots are not revolutionaries trying to overthrow the government of the United States.
Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."

The House Intelligence Committee, by
party-line vote, voted Monday evening to release a potentially
explosive memorandum its staff compiled that could blow the lid off the long
investigation into alleged collusion – so far unproven - between the Trump
campaign and Russia. President Trump has five days to decide whether to approve
the memo’s release to the public or seek to block it. Thus far, despite
opposition from the Department of Justice, the White House has been signaling
receptivity to the memo’s release. The memo reportedly accuses leaders near the
top of the Department of Justice and FBI hierarchies of misusing their
authority for political reasons to obtain a secret Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Act (FISA) court order to spy on at least one former Trump
campaign official, Carter Page.
Mueller and Rod Rosenstein
If the claims said to be set forth in
the memo turn out to be true, the original surveillance order approved by the
FISA court was likely obtained under false pretenses. Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein reportedly
sought to perpetuate the charade by approving a renewal application for
continued surveillance of Carter Page to the FISA court without proper vetting
of the sources used to justify the requested surveillance. The original order
reportedly relied at least in part on an unsubstantiated dossier compiled by
former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. The FISA court was
allegedly not fully informed either of the dossier’s serious shortcomings or the
fact that it had been paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary
Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Add the shaky provenance of the
dossier used to justify the surveillance of an American citizen to the many
text messages authored by two intensely anti-Trump senior FBI officials who
were then involved in the Russian collusion investigation and appeared to be
looking for a way to sabotage Trump’s candidacy and presidency. Together, they
confront the nation with a constitutional scandal that makes Watergate look
like child’s play.
Comey, McCabe and Strzok
The two politically biased senior FBI
officials, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, have been reassigned and are no longer
involved in the Russian collusion investigation. However, while they were
heavily involved in the investigation as well as with each other as lovers,
Strzok wrote a text message to Page, which stated, "I want to believe the
path that you threw out for consideration in Andy's office that there is no way
he [Trump] gets elected, but I'm afraid we can't take that risk. It's like an
insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40." It is
widely believed that the “Andy” referred to in the text message was the now
former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe.
