Obamagate

"The biggest political scandal of our lifetimes." - Rush Limbaugh

"I think this will not just end with firings, I believe there are people who will go to jail!" - Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL)

"Take it to the bank, the FBI/FISA docs are devastating for the Dems. The whole image of a benevolent Barack Obama they’ve disingenuously tried to portray is about to be destroyed. The real Obama, the vengeful narcissist, is going to be exposed for all to see." - Dan Bongino

"Obamagate" is Bongino's term, and it seems apt for the speculative contents of the memo: "...extensive abuse of power and highly illegal collusion between the Obama administration, the FBI, the DOJ and the Clinton Campaign against Donald Trump and his team during and after the 2016 presidential election."

Flashback to this May 19 post by nb:

A ranking Republican statesman this week told an off-the-record gathering that a ‘coup’ attempt was in progress against President Donald Trump, with collusion between the largely Democratic media and Trump’s numerous enemies in the Republican Party.

There is apparently a smoking gun, in the form of a four-page written memo, and it has now been witnessed by every member of Congress. It's only a matter of time now before it becomes public.

The origin of the memo is unclear, but I've not yet seen any attack on its credibility - only its probity to the American people. Yeah, that'll keep it secret.

Correction (according to the peanut gallery @ PowerLine): many Republicans have read it, Dems are apparently pretending it doesn't exist. Hugh Hewitt covered it yesterday: saying those who read it were aghast, nearly speechless. Trending strong now on Twitter (reportedly) is #ReleaseTheMemo. If I had twitter, I'd be trumpeting!

Correction noted. I've since learned that one single Democrat was curious enough to see it.
