I can say in one word what the release of this memo does, vindication.
Unlike the Republican Nunez memo, the Democratic memo lays out a clear case as to why the fisa court had the right and obligation to put a warrant on Carter page.
Carter page likes to make himself look like a bumbling idiot. I think he’s anything but that. He has spoken ill of the United States in Russia since 2013. He has repeatedly said that He is a conduit to Russia. And he had meetings with Russia after the candidate Trump said that he was one of his leading foreign policy advisors. Now, I’m not saying that this guy is a genius. The current occupant of the White House has a penchant on picking terrible people as his advisors. But I know that the Russians saw Carter page as a wonderful source of information for their intelligence services. They have been cultivating him throughout the Last 5 Years and we’re hoping that he would be one of their Prime Assets in the US.
Now that the Democratic memo has been released I can’t wait to hear this White House attack it, unfortunately it’s too well documented and has sources that are incontrovertible.
