The Russian collusion investigation that has taken much of the front page stories for months may be reaching a critical juncture. Sara Carter, a freelance national security correspondent, filed a report on Thursday that could ignite a political firestorm.

She reported a certain document outlining extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuse was reviewed by members of the House. Its contents "could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice."

According to Carter, the aforementioned memo was released to mostly unnamed lawmakers and was reviewed in a secured room. The report caused an immediate demand on social media to publicly release the contents. #ReleaseTheMemo is the number one trending topic on Twitter.

Apparently some individuals who have reviewed the report made comments that ranged from alarming” to "explosive." It contains a political road map of troubling conduct by those involved. One senior government official told Carter, We need to make the document available, so the public can see it"

Several sources told Carter, "They would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel Investigation into President Trump and his associates." Her story, if true, begs the question of what could possibly hold this up from public scrutiny?

The story didn’t take former U.S. Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino any time to profess his belief that the memo is indeed important and "devastating for the Dems." He further contended it portrays former present Barack Obama as a "vengeful narcissist, hell-bent on destroying Trump. The former Obama administration’s going to have a lot of explaining to do. S**t is about to hit the fan."

Bongino’s statements were backed up by several unnamed lawmakers. But a few went on the record including Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C. who called the memo "shocking." He publicly demanded the report be released to the American people.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowagave the most descriptive account calling the document "sickening." He went on to write, "It is worse than Watergate." He added a hashtag that points to the Never Trump movement.

Sean Hannity of Fox News said, "This is far worse than Watergate. This is an abuse of surveillance and intelligence to win an election." He added, "It is a massive abuse of power, and it was all done by just a few people who think and thought they knew better than you about who should be the president of the United States."

Will the memo be released to the general public? It appears the contents could be extremely damaging to the FBI and the DOJ. Will those powers be strong enough to hold back the tide of public demand for public disclosure?
