The government has been abusing its power, and a memo detailing the abuse is being released.

House Republicans have voted to release a controversial memo that describes government abuse of surveillance powers. The information is so disturbing that it has prompted Speaker Paul Ryan to call for the FBI to be 'cleansed.'

The FBI could be in trouble if allegations are true.

LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - "I think we should disclose all this stuff. It's the best disinfectant. Accountability, transparency -- for the sake of the reputation of our institutions," SPeaker Paul Ryan said as he called for a "cleanse" of the FBI. 

Ryan's remarks came after he read a controversial memo that describes the FBI abusing surveillance powers during the 2016 election.  The alternative, Ryan said, would be to cover up "mischief." 

President Trump now has five days to decide if the memo should be released. If he does not oppose it, it will be published for all to read no later than Friday. 

According to Republicans, the classified memo sheds light on whether or not the FBI relied on a fake dossier on Trump to authorize surveillance of one of his campaign advisers, Carter Page. James Comey was at the helm of the organization at that time. 

If true, then it shows the FBI may have knowingly and willingly relied on fake evidence to abuse their power. This is something that happens in a police state, not a democracy. 

So far, the memo has not been released, so the precise details can only be inferred from comments made by those who have read it. But if it is damning, then it may result in an investigation into the organization and perhaps several high-profile resignations, if not criminal charges.
