No, the memo isn't 'treasonous, or 'worse than Watergate — Commentary

Senior FBI officials, including Wray, have also made direct appeals to the White House, warning that it could set a dangerous precedent.

The memo doesn't provide further details about the information the FBI received about Papadopoulos.

According to its authors, the memo's findings "raise concerns with the legitimacy and legality of certain [Department of Justice] and FBI interactions" with the court that approves surveillance requests. The memo also omits that Page had been on the FBI's radar a few years earlier as part of a separate counterintelligence investigation into Russian influence. They've fed distrust of these institutions by alleging an anti-Trump Deep State exists that is trying to undermine the president at every turn.

Gowdy, a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, was speaking on CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday.

President Donald Trump authorized its release, insisting the claimed malfeasance targets him.

For one, Democrats said it was misleading and incorrect to say a judge was not told of the potential political motivations of the people paying for Steele's research. "'The FBI failed to inform the FISA court that the Clinton campaign had funded the dossier.the FBI became.a tool of anti-Trump political actors".

Republicans seized on the allegations in the memo to argue that the FBI's investigation was politically tainted from the start.

His trips to Moscow in 2016 were not connected to the campaign, they said, and campaign officials were unaware of his contacts with Russian intelligence operatives in 2013 when he was hired onto Mr. Trump's foreign policy team during the election year.

"There must be a review of past FISA warrants and unmasking orders to determine whether there are other instances of the government knowingly submitting faulty or biased evidence to the court in order to get secret warrants on American citizens", Duncan said.

The so-called Nunes memo, which was authored by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, has been hotly contested by lawmakers and intelligence officials.

The memo itself notes that the investigation began before the wiretap application on Page. Democrats take issue with both points.

Congressional Democrats accused the Republicans who backed the memo of distorting classified information as part of an effort to undermine law enforcement officers and the ongoing Trump-Russia investigation.

"That's what this is about", he told Fox News. And therefore, he's wrong.

Their comments came as Democrats prepared to push for a committee vote Monday night on releasing their rebuttal to the GOP memo. Even if the motion succeeds, Trump has five days to block it.

Politico calls the release "a dramatic new stage in the GOP's effort to delegitimize the federal probe".

The FBI director has increasingly been at odds with Trump in recent weeks, whether it be over former deputy director Andrew McCabe's ouster or the Nunes memo.

"The article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo news", the memo states.

Former FBI head James Comey, who was fired by Trump last year after refusing to pledge loyalty to the president, tweeted after the memo's release: "That's it?"

Priebus says the Times report "wasn't reality".

Manafort sued Mueller on Jan. 3, saying his office's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election exceeded its legal authority.

Nunes has for months faced criticism about his close ties to the White House.

"I am on record as saying I support Bob Mueller 100 percent", Gowdy said.

Even if you dismiss the Manafort/Gates charges - they haven't been found guilty - how can you dismiss the guilty pleas by Papadopoulos and Flynn? "He personally ordered the declassification of the memo, not for political purposes, but for personal purposes".

"I actually don't want him to testify because as a lawyer, I don't want him caught in a 'gotcha' moment where someone accuses him of lying, where he may not remember something".
