The FISA memo bombshell, a scandal dubbed “worse than Watergate” by one Congressman, is being completely ignored by CNN this morning, with zero coverage on the network’s home page.
The memo, which was viewed by members of the House on Thursday, is said to contain “shocking” evidence of top Department of Justice and FBI officials abusing the the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in order to illegally spy on the Trump campaign.
“This was essentially deep state political opposition research being conducted inside government for a considerable period of time. The information, gathered on Clinton’s political opposition, was then weaponized against the candidacy of Donald Trump,” summarizes the Conservative Treehouse blog.
Numerous members of Congress expressed their utter shock at the gravity of the revelations contained in the memo and called for its public release.
“The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), adding that people will “go to jail” over the memo.
“I have read the memo,” tweeted Republican Congressman Steve King. “The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was #neverTrump & #alwaysHillary.”

“It’s troubling. It is shocking,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”
Reaction from other political commentators was also strident, with former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino calling the memo, “the biggest scandal of our generation.”
The dossier is important BUT the real question is “why was the Obama administration spying on team Trump in the first place ????” The answers are deeply troubling. #ObamaGate is the biggest scandal of our generation. This is going to get ugly.

Wikileaks is even offering up to $1 million dollars in reward money for someone to leak the memo.

The hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo has also been trending on Twitter all night and into the morning.
By any definition, this is a huge story.
But apparently, CNN doesn’t see it that way.
A scan of their home page this morning reveals that the news network has devoted zero coverage to the “worse than Watergate” scandal.
They appear to think allegations that Trump paid a porn star for sex 12 years ago is a bigger story.
Gee, it’s almost like they have an agenda or something.
