FBI, Justice Department have 'politicized' investigations in favor of Democrats — Trump

U.S. Representative Devin Nunes departs at the conclusion of a closed-door meeting between the House Intelligence Committee and White House senior advisor Jared Kushner on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

The Democrats' counter memo alleges that the Republicans didn't provide the right context when writing the FISA memo that was just released.

Papadopoulos told an Australian diplomat in May 2016 that Russia had political dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, information Australian officials passed to the US government, the New York Times reported in December.

On Saturday, Nadler circulated a memo to House Democrats disputing the conclusions of the Nunes memo and arguing that Page was a lawful target of surveillance, according to NBC News. It also claims they "represent a troubling breakdown of legal processes established to protect the American people from abuses".

"The consensus, supported by the facts, forms the basis of the warrant issued", he said.

The White House said President Trump "would be inclined" to release the Democrats' memo, as long as it has been reviewed for security purposes.

The memo itself notes that Steele had a "past record of credible reporting on other unrelated matters".

The committee is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, but its inquiry has devolved into a partisan fight about the FBI and justice department, and how they have investigated the meddling.

The revelation appears to corroborate claims made in a 10-page rebuttal memo crafted by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee.

Two days later, the committee's Democratic ranking member, Adam Schiff, charged that Nunes hadn't sent the same memo to the White House that the full committee had voted on.

Does Trump have confidence in Rosenstein? he was asked.

Of the memo, Trump said, "I think it's a disgrace".

"This is an American disgrace!" he added. "Rank & File are great people". That warrant was reauthorized multiple times, including by Rosenstein.

The court filings included an FBI agent's criminal complaint that, at one point, cited a transcript of Podobnyy speaking with co-defendant Igor Sporyshev about Page. And is the surveillance of Page - who had drawn the attention of US intelligence services as far back as 2013 - enough to call into question the entire Russia investigation, which had been initiated months before the warrant was approved? Trump, calling Mueller's probe a political witch hunt, has denied collusion or obstruction of justice. The officials were not authorized to be quoted about private deliberations and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page and the infamous - and mostly unverified - dossier compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, for the most part.

Steele's opposition research effort was initially funded by the conservative Washington Free Beacon. Any agency and anyone who steps outside that boundary must answer for it, and it must not be permitted to happen again.

Leading Democrats have warned of a "constitutional crisis" and told Mr Trump not to use the memo as a means of disrupting and discrediting the Russia investigation.

Mr Rosenstein is overseeing the Mueller probe and has been a growing target for the President's frustration as the investigation continues. FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe admitted to the committee that no warrant would have been sought without information from the dossier. Page is referred to in the document as "Male-1". I wish more of our leaders would.

He said the work of the House panel in writing and releasing the memo is "conducting legitimate oversight over a very unique law, FISA".
