Fox New contributor Geraldo Rivera said the release of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) memo could spell the end of the Russia investigation.

“They should release the damn memo, excuse my language. It’s enough now. The American people deserve to know what is in it,” Rivera said Friday on “Fox & Friends.” “If indeed as it seems, this memo reveals the absolutely perverse fact that an unverified dossier, funded by the political rivals to the Republicans and to the president, was used to get a sacred FISA warrant to surveil an American citizen, then what that is — this is the fruit of the poison tree.”


Rivera claimed there would be legal and constitutional grounds to challenge the Russia probe, if the memo showed the dossier about President Donald Trump was the main source of evidence for the government when it obtained a FISA warrant.

“Anything that goes from that basically illegally-obtained warrant forward can be attacked legally and constitutionally,” Rivera said. “This is a very very serious thing. This could be the death knell for the ‘Russiagate’ probe because of this absolutely profound mistake made at the beginning.”
