Trump & House GOP Release Rep. Devin Nunes Memo That Claims FBI Conspiracy Against Trump
President Donald Trump declassified a memo written by Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California and/or his staff that claims there is a conspiracy at the FBI to take down Trump.
The Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee released the memo, but refuses to release a counter-memo by House Democrats.
A source told Bloomberg Politics that FBI Director Christopher Wray opposed the release of the Nunes memo because of inaccuracies.
The Washington Examiner notes the memo claims — without evidence — the following:
The Steele dossier formed an essential part of the initial and all three renewal FISA applications against Carter Page.
Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.
The political origins of the Steele dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials, but excluded from the FISA applications.
DOJ official Bruce Ohr met with Steele beginning in the summer of 2016 and relayed to DOJ information about Steele’s bias. Steele told Ohr that he, Steele, was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected president and was passionate about him not becoming president.
