Twitter Ridicules Alex Jones For Trying to Pass Off Public Document as Secret FISA Memo

Over the past few days, you’ve probably noticed the cry of #ReleaseTheMemo from some GOP lawmakers and members of the pro-Trump media. This is all referring to a classified memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and his staff that supposedly contains explosive information that shows federal officials abused their power in obtaining FISA warrants. While conservatives are pointing to the memo as a reason to discredit the Trump-Russia probe, Nunes has insisted on keeping the doc secret — even refusing to allow the FBI to view it.

During his InfoWars broadcast today, noted conspiracy theorist Alex Jones touted that he had a huge exclusive. Yep, that’s right. He totally had the secret FISA memo that showed that President Barack Obama had spied on Donald Trump and his associates and OH MY GOD!!!

Except, of course, he didn’t. What he had was a publicly released document that had been available for months.

And Twitter did what Twitter does best — point and laugh at Alex Jones for doing Alex Jones things.
