Video: Congressman Chris Smith fears partisanship at the highest levels of the FBI

Congressman Chris Smith read the FISA memo on Wednesday morning before traveling from Washington for an interview with MMM.

Smith told us that there appears to be no evidence of collusion between President Trump and Russia and that he has real concerns about partisanship at the highest levels of the FBI.

Smith says he favors releasing the currently classified FISA memo to the public and that he expects it will be released soon.

    Did you get dizzy from all of that spinning?

    “…Real concerns about partisanship at the highest levels of the FBI…”

    How bold! Partisanship ? You mean an organized group inside the FBI trying to nullify an election and sabotage and impeach President Trump. Or wives of top DOJ officials working with Fusion? Or deliberately throwing the Hillary email investigation and ignoring Uranium 1 nd and the Clinton Foundation. How about getting a bit pissed off Congressman Smith?

    I saw the headline and reacted without watching the interview. My apology to Art and Congressman Smith. In the interview, it is very clear Congressman Smith is extremely distressed by the events and his reading of intelligence memo. Although he is unable to disclose the contents right now he wants to make it pubic. While Congressman Smith supports the FBI , he says the recent revelations are “devastating” and a threat to the “credibility” of the FBI. I recommend everyone watch the 4 minute video.

    Considering the scam that Devin Nunes tried to pull earlier this year, I would be highly skeptical of anything he has written. With that said, if he has evidence of wrongdoing, he should turn it over to the AG’s office or bring those involved before Congress.

    And as any fyi, the “secret society” nonsense was apparently a joke between the two agents involved…..funny to see the Trumpsters heads exploding over that one.

  5. There is a secret society. said at 6:18 pm on January 25th, 2018:

    It’s called the Democrat party. But it’s not your Irish union grandfather’s Democrat party. It’s now acting as the new Socialist/ Communist party. Doing everything they can to destroy everything good about our unique and special country- the best in the world. May it not be too late to save the USA.

    Chris Smith is among the stupidest and most brazen extremists in all of Congress. Why would anything he says be newsworthy? This is a conservative who wants government to have a seat in every bedroom in the Nation. And, yes, there is a conspiracy to get rid of Trump, but it’s not within the FBI; it’s within the majority of the American electorate who find him an embarrassment to everything worth saving in America, starting with freedom of the press.

    freedom of the press and assembly and speech only apply to liberals, these days? And, isn’t it sad that there is so little journalistic integrity, now? Just throw up a headline unsourced, and see what sticks. Not to mention the childish, bad, sometimes violent behaviors we now have to endure from snowflakes who didn’t get their way, and just LOST, and still can’t get over it. Example: Conservatives on campuses are scorned, spat upon, and sometimes not even allowed to speak. So much for taxpayer- subsidized free exchange of views and knowledge. Why is the system only ok when they win? Well, sorry, many are sick of it, and will continue to advocate for decent, true, fair, adherence to our Constitution!

    “freedom of the press and assembly and speech only apply to liberals, these days?”

    who writes your stuff, Elmer Fudd or FOX News? You can with a straight face talk about violence when the sole death in Charlottseville was the deed of a neo-Nazi.

    I am a moderate, and I long for the time when there was thoughtful, non-ideological conversation. Your reply is the essence of illogic and extremist rhetoric, because you reach the conclusion that everything is stacked against conservatives and then back it up with fake one-sided stuff instances, ignoring a president who is a disgusting boor who favors Nazis and racists. Try to remember that the GOP controls almost all government in the US, and that civil rights belong to all people, especially those not in power.

  9. Hey “Larry,” said at 5:31 pm on January 29th, 2018:

    just wondering if you are already smoking our soon-to-be legal pot? Anybody who does not understand that it absolutely IS stacked against any conservatives in this country, in media, Hollywood, education, the populous large cities, on and on, is downright clueless. It is also perhaps,partially, the” moderates” in our own party, (therefore, the GOP is NOT really running things,) who God must have forgotten to give basic guts to, who also tip the scales, against anyone who is just plain sick of the direction we were going in, in many areas, for too many years. See, your points, to us, are the CNN, MSNBC, and mainstream networks ad nauseum “ talking points.” Therein lies our basic political and social divide, in this country! And, we deserve to express our opinions, just as much as you do.

    And, using that one example of a bad person in Charlottesville, ignores all the other needless violence happening every day, in our cities, schools, etc.. If one were to check their voter registrations, (if registered,) my guess is, most of them vote, or, would vote: 90% Democrat!
