Since a four-page bombshell memo was released to House Republicans Thursday afternoon, detailing alarming FISA abuse from within the Obama administration, Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL) has been calling for it to be released to the public.

The contents in the memo are being described as “worse than a government shutdown” and “bigger than Watergate.”

In an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Friday night, Gaetz announced that he and over 60 Republican lawmakers had just sent a letter to Rep. Devin Nunes, Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, demanding that the memo be released immediately.

“I believe that once the American people have the opportunity to evaluate the allegations and claims in this memo, it will become evident, the activities of the last administration, the crimes that I believe were committed, and the total sham that this Mueller investigation is, built on a false premise and rotten to the core,” he told Carlson.

The letter posted on his website, the Gaetz writes,

“This important memo will be of interest to anyone who cares about America and our democratic system of government. We are writing to request the immediate release of this document to the public, as well as any relevant ancillary information. The audience of this document should not be limited to Members of Congress — the American people deserve to know the information it contains.”

Within the past 24 hours, the new hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo has set Twitter ablaze. 

Fox News’ Sean Hannity posted a plea on Twitter Friday, encouraging the public to call Congress and demand that the memo be released.

Congress #ReleaseTheMemo Call Congress. Pls be polite. 202-224-3121

In another interview with Fox News earlier Friday, Gaetz repeated his statement from the day before, saying, “Heads are going to roll” when the information in the memo becomes public.
