FBI still has 'grave concerns' about Nunes memo — Source

- Devin Nunes, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who wrote and released the memo. "This is very dangerous terrain".

White House spokesman Raj Shah said that the copies of the memo had been sent to Republican and Democratic members of the Intelligence panel and Speaker Paul Ryan's office. The FBI had also separately authorized payments to Steele for the same information, according to the memo. He has supported the memo release in apparent hopes that it could help undermine the probe being led by special counsel Robert Mueller, which he has called a "witch hunt".

The FBI did have the opportunity to review the memo, but said in a public statement that the agency was still concerned about the accuracy of the memo. His deputy Rob Rosenstein was also appointed by the president, who however has felt unsure of his choice.

Imagine the uproar from Republicans if President Obama had accused the FBI of having an anti-Democrat bias when Comey reopened its investigation of Hillary Clinton days before the 2016 election.


His latest salvo was sure to worsen the president's frayed relations with agencies that are supposed to be politically independent. And there is no White House-directed effort to counter aggressive Russian influence in the US or West. The Russian spy ring was caught by authorities.

Earlier Friday, Trump harshly criticized the leadership of the FBI and DOJ.

Now, House Republicans are providing the loyalty that Trump can't get from the intelligence and law-enforcement communities, whose employees serve the American people. If the portion quoted above is false, I'd like the FBI to say, under oath, that this is the case and ideally to declassify the full text of the FISA applications. An online campaign #releasethememo gained traction in recent weeks, pushing the issue to the fore. FBI Director Christopher Wray volunteered to go before Nunes' committee to address their concerns about abuses.

Lawrence O'Donnell nailed it. The memo isn't going to change anything.

Democrats call the memo an attempt by Republicans to distract attention from the investigation into Russian meddling in the election.


"The president is looking for a reason to fire Bob Mueller; the president is looking for a reason to fire Rod Rosenstein", House intel ranking Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff said Thursday. Sanford has been a long-time critic of government surveillance practices.

"President Trump should heed the warnings of the Justice Department and FBI, and reverse his reported decision to defy longstanding policies regarding the disclosure of classified information", they said.

Since his firing last May, Comey has made his personal feelings about Trump known, testifying in detail about personal interactions he says troubled him.

When President Trump announced Christopher Wray's nomination as FBI director in June, he praised him as "a man of impeccable credentials".


All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. "So no, I do not support actions that fall in line with Vladimir Putin's strategy of dismantling American Democracy". They say he made a trip to Russia on his own in 2016, but that they spurned his offers to brief the candidate afterward. "Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy".
