In the end these violations will all trace back to Obama and will permanently taint his administration. That is what they are trying to protect!

Our reporters are reading the memo and will add their analysis soon. For more coverage, read here.

I'll read it myself and come to a conclusion on my own.....

The BBC's summary is that the only real point in it is that Steele, whose dossier was some part of the justification used to get the warrant to investigate page, was very anti-Republican President. But they then make an astute observation and ask a great question:

Quote:
The memo makes the case that the Fisa judge should have been told about information about Steele that could call his objectivity into question - including his expressed views about Donald Trump, his contacts with the press and the fact that his investigation was funded, in part, by Democratic Party interests.

Would such a disclosure have been enough to make the Page warrant request one of only a handful of the tens of thousands of Fisa applications that have been rejected by judges since the system was set up in 1978? And is the surveillance of Page - who had drawn the attention of US intelligence services as far back as 2013 - enough to call into question the entire Russia investigation, which had been initiated months before the warrant was approved?

The answers to those questions will determine whether the memo was a bomb or a dud.
Why do Republicans always leave out the fact that Steele was originally contacted to create this dossier by a Republican PAC?

I vote dud.
