Based on Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, “a profoundly misleading set of talking points drafted by Republican staff attacking the FBI and its handling of the investigation,” which sources “classified materials that most of the Republican Intelligence Committee members were forced to acknowledge they have never read.” One of those talking elements, it seems, consists of an accusation documented by Politico that one Trump foreign-policy aide was “inappropriately” surveilled during the campaign, in a improper use of FISA (the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act).
If that doesn’t sound rather like the advertised “bombshell,” you aren’t exercising your imagination – or your Twitter account – nearly enough. Nunes’ talking points, right-wing Twitter trolls have been proclaiming, means nothing less than the devastation of Barack Obama’s presidential legacy and the unraveling of the true conspiracy to acquire the 2016 election for the Democrats. “Obama, Comey, McCabe, Hillary, Rosenstein, Strzok, Page, Huma, and Susan Rice need to go to prison for illegally spying on Donald Trump!” tweets Red Nation Rising. The undeniable bases for all of their convictions is, obviously, in that four-page memo – hiding from the American folks, practically in plain sight! (Needless to say, Trump or House Republicans could effortlessly make the memo public – even some progressives are starting to call for #release, sure that the memo can’t be that damning.)
What’s remarkable about this meme isn’t the truth that it’s being spread far and wide – it’s how much it’s taken over Twitter these last week, with numerous other banner headlines in the news. The Hamilton 68 Dashboard, a venture of the German Marshall Fund of the United States which tracks more than 500 Russia-influenced Twitter accounts to measure the reach of disinformation campaigns, displays a massive surge behind the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag in the last 48 hours, led by the typical mix of right-wing platforms like Breitbart, Fox News, and The Gateway Pundit – along with Russian bots and state media outlets like Tass, RT, and Sputnik.
