The House Intelligence Committee meets at 5 p.m. Monday in the Capitol. The meeting will give the committee its first opportunity to vote on the question of releasing the so-called "FISA abuse" memo that has captured Washington's attention in recent days. Since the GOP holds a 13 to 9 advantage on the committee, the overwhelming likelihood is that if there is a vote, the panel will decide, along party lines, to release the memo.

At that point, House rules call for the committee to await a decision by the president on whether he supports or opposes release of the memo. President Trump has made clear he supports release, so the memo could be made public quickly.


  1. The question is will there be a run on incontinence supplies or one way tickets out of the country?

  2. Hope I eat my words, but I believe we will all be sold out on this Government abuse. My belief is that all in Congress are complicit in one way or another and are just going through the political motions as they always do.
    A few months from now, it will all be forgotten.
    Again, I hope I am wrong.
