FISA Memo Released, Markets Drop, Bargain$ Ahead – Plus MHMarket Update

CNNmoney2.2.2017ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsLet’s simplify what this highly politicized FISA memo uproar is all about.

What’s been called the “Trump Dossier” for over a year, was in fact paid for by former Secretary Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic National Committee.

That document was deemed “Salacious and Unverified” per James Comey, former FBi director, and others, then and since.


That is to say, the “dossier” was political opposition material intended to be used against candidate Donald Trump in the closing days of the 2016 campaign.  Think of it as high-priced creative writing intended to harm a political opponent.  “Dossier” makes it sound authentic; it’s not.

That creative writing document, plus media reports based on that document, were then used by the Obama era Justice Department (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.  Translation. Law enforcement was weaponized in an American election.

That FISA warrant would likely not have been issued without the Clinton/DNC funded “dossier.”

That’s a bombshell claim, which would involve numerous illegalities. It calls into question the basis for the Mueller probe, which was also influenced by the “dossier,” that was paid by the Clinton campaign/DNC

That could lead to a new special counsel to investigate those federal officials who abused the FISA process and politicized federal powers in a presidential election.

That’s why Democrats are screaming, and why Republicans have been pushing to get it out.

The actual FISA Memo, the White House’s attachment to it authorizing the release of the document, and  videos on that and the market rattle will be our featured report.
