Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino warned Saturday that the Democrats will embark on a “scorched earth campaign,” after Republicans release the FISA memo.
#ReleaseTheMemo you can absolutely count on the Dems embarking on a scorched earth campaign to lie their way through this epic scandal. There’s no lie they won’t tell, no character they won’t assassinate, & no deception they won’t embrace to hide what they did,” tweeted Bongino.
The memo, a four-page document authored by House Intelligence staffers, is being touted by Republicans as a”shocking” overview of surveillance abuses carried out by Justice Department and FBI officials against the Trump campaign. According to the Daily Beast, the memo explicitly names former FBI Director James Comey, bureau Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Bongino has been one of the leading voices demanding the memo be released immediately. In a tweet Sunday, the popular podcaster taunted Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) about the House Intelligence Committee member’s opposition to releasing the memo.
“Dear @RepAdamSchiff, Why won’t you vote to #ReleaseTheMemo? What are you hiding? You told us all that you’re seeking “the truth” but you’re hiding a memo with the truth in it. I always knew you were a fraud but now everyone else will see it too,”
Schiff’s position on the memo has been nothing short of “Schiffty,” having first branded the memo nothing more than Republican propaganda, then claiming the document shouldn’t be made public because Americans wouldn’t understand it, to announcing House Intelligence Democrats would be releasing a “counter-memo.”
Schiff was also instrumental in pushing false reports about ‘Russian bots’ driving the social media firestorm calling for the memo’s release.
An internal analysis conducted by Twitter found no evidence of Russian bot involvement in the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag campaign.
“Twitter’s internal analysis has thus far found that authentic American accounts, and not Russian imposters or automated bots, are driving #ReleaseTheMemo,” reported the Daily Beast.

Bongino has previously warned the memo’s release will not only implicate the likes of Comey, McCabe and Rosenstein, but Barack Obama, as well, leaving the former President with two options.
“After they #ReleaseTheMemo Obama will only have two options: OPTION 1) I didn’t know anything about the most important CI investigation in American history, despite being notified about it, or OPTION 2) I did know and I approved of using the police state to spy on my opposition,” tweeted the conservative firebrand.
Last week, Bongino warned the release of the FISA memo will lead to the destruction of Obama’s carefully managed image.
“My sincere apologies for the expletive but SHIT IS ABOUT TO HIT THE FAN. The former Obama administration’s going to have a lot of explaining to do,” Bongino added.
“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,” added Dan Bongino.
