GOP stepping up attacks on Justice, FBI over Russian Federation probe

Mainstream Media Begins Push to Minimize Russian Investigation Memo

A secret memo written by Republicans from the House Intelligence Committee either reveals "shocking" spying abuses by the FBI and Justice Department, or it's just a Republican-created distraction away from the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, just as the probe moves closer to President Trump. Ryan instead sided with Nunes, CNN reported, and helped work out an agreement for the DOJ to turn over hundreds pages of documents related to the Russian Federation probes.

Democrats are countering with their own memo, saying that the GOP memo has misleading findings. Rep.

"The day after the election, the day after what they really, really didn't want to have happen, there's a text exchange between these two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, these supposed to be objective, fact-centric Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, saying perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society", Gowdy said.

Boyd also wrote that "wider distribution of the classified information" presumably contained in Nunes' memo would be a "significant deviation" from the Department's agreement with House intel and the office of House Speaker Paul Ryan. The Justice Department has provided the texts to Congress.

WikiLeaks has offered $1 million in bitcoin to anyone who would share the memo, which meant this was a coordinated attack on USA law enforcement.

In addition to the resignations, Blackmun's email stated an interim board must be in place by February 28 and then in turn replaced within 12 months.

With pressure building to release a memo that Republicans say will turn the Russian Federation collusion investigation on its head, mainstream media is rushing to minimize the impact.

This comes as the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee called Wednesday for the public release of the underlying intelligence behind the Nunes memo.

The House Intelligence Committee may vote on releasing the memo, which some House Republicans have claimed contains "disturbing" information on how the law was used to target the Trump campaign.

And I say reportedly because, as you said, this memo is classified.

What good is a document that unearths the truth-no matter how frightening-if the first rule of the memo is that you can't talk about the memo?

According to Jaafari, it undermines the Geneva process and Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi. We are studying the document, there are both positive and negative impressions of it.

"I haven't looked at the memo, and I haven't seen the memo", he said.

In the coming weeks, Americans interested in the congressional investigations into Russian meddling could be swamped with memos, text messages and more committee testimony.

He added, "What (Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas) and I saw today was a text about not keeping texts, we saw more manifest bias against President Trump all the way through the election into the transition and I saw an interesting text that Director (James) Comey was going to update the President of the United States about an investigation".

As Republicans struggled to keep that weak conspiracy theory afloat, a bigger story emerged: The fiancee of a former Trump foreign policy adviser who is now cooperating with Muller predicted that the adviser would emerge as a key figure in the inquiry.

"The Majority voted (Thursday) on a party-line basis to grant House Members access to a profoundly misleading set of talking points drafted by Republican staff attacking the FBI and its handling of the investigation", Schiff said in a statement. Missing FBI text messages anger Republicans MORE's California district, ripped the Republican lawmaker in a scathing editorial this week. "And they don't like having awkward conversations with their kids trying to explain what the president meant by 'shithole countries'". The importance of discrediting the F.B.I. will increase as Mueller moves closer to laying out a case that Trump obstructed justice and that his associates lied to investigators.
