Trump declassifies intel on Russia probe

05 Febrero 2018, 02:14 | Bibiana Flor

However, the FBI fears that the release of the memo, some of which is based on classified information, may threaten national security.

"So I sent it over to Congress. They will do what they're going to do".

The memo stated that Comey signed three FISA applications for Page and McCabe signed one. Today the White House authorized its declassification, and now the memo is out. The latest example is his determination to release a one-sided and harshly partisan memo, despite pleas from the FBI director not to do so.

The top Democrat on the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee that released the memo called it "a political hit job" and questioned whether GOP Rep. Devin Nunes, the committee chairman, had coordinated with the White House in drafting it.

Scandal is not an exact science.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in October to making a false statement to the FBI after he lied about his interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government.

The House intelligence panel voted along party lines Monday to put it out, giving Trump five days to reject the release under committee rules.

Officials said the dossier, compiled by Steele and funded in part by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, "formed an essential part of the Carter Page FISA application".

On Tuesday the FBI issued an extraordinary public warning that it had "grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo 's accuracy".

The civil lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, accused Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, of exceeding his legal authority to "grant Mr. Mueller carte blanche to investigate and pursue criminal charges in connection with anything he stumbles across". For example, in September 2016, Steele admitted to Ohr his feelings against thencandidate Trump when Steele said he "was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president". Strzok was removed from the investigation after anti-Trump text messages between himself and FBI attorney Lisa Page surfaced. "A lot of people should be ashamed of themselves, and much worse than that".

And the FBI and the Department of Justice are quite right.

Democrats said the release of the memo was aimed at disrupting the probe into alleged links between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

President Donald Trump tweeted this morning that a controversial Republican memo alleging abuses of government surveillance powers at the FBI and Justice Department " totally vindicates" him in the Russia investigation. Steele has admitted in British court filings that he met with Yahoo News-and several other outlets-in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS.

"We write to inform you that we would consider such an unwarranted action as an attempt to obstruct justice in the Russia investigation", the statement said. "Talk is cheap; the work you do is what will endure", Wray wrote.

But Priebus pushed back against a New York Times report that Trump ordered that Mueller be fired last June but backed off after the top White House lawyer threatened to resign.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., lamented Friday that the controversy over the memo had stolen the focus of officialdom from Russian President Vladimir Putin's attack on Western democracies that began two years ago.

Democrats and the intelligence community strongly objected to the release of this memo, including Adam Schiff, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, who joins us now.

Part of the problem for the FBI, though, will be its difficulty in publicly correcting falsehoods it identifies in the Republican report.
