A source told Axios that there could be five more memos to release from the House Intelligence Committee, detailing illegal acts committed by high ranking FBI officials.
Why five memos and not just one?
Trey Gowdy may have answered that question on Sunday when he said the Intel Committee is investigating five FBI officials. They could use each memo to document the crimes of those five individuals. That would mean that each individual memo would, in reality, be a criminal referral or an exoneration.
Here are my guesses. James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr and Dana Boente. They are the ones who signed sworn statements that the evidence in the application is complete and accurate.
What we’re hearing: Republicans close to Nunes say there could be as many as five additional memos or reports of “wrongdoing.” But a source on the House Intelligence Committee tells me there’s no current plan to use the same extraordinary and highly controversial process they just went through, with a vote and ultimately a presidential approval to declassify sensitive information.
A Republican member briefed on Nunes’ investigations told me: “There are several areas of concern where federal agencies used government resources to try to create a narrative and influence the election. Some have suggested coordination with Hillary Clinton operatives, [Sydney] Blumenthal and [Cody] Shearer, to back up the false narrative.”
Blumenthal and Shearer were the ones who tried to discredit all of Bill Clinton’s victims.
The Washington Examiner’s Byron York said that the additional memos could set up a showdown between Republicans and Democrats each and every time a new memo is ready for release. It would make for great TV and who knows, maybe Adam Schiff will finally fall off the edge and get the psychiatric help he so desperately needs.
Byron York said:
Finally, the memo released today does not represent the sum total of what House investigators have learned in their review of the FBI and Justice Department Trump-Russia investigation. That means the fight over the memo could be replayed in the future when the Intelligence Committee decides to release more information.
