On Friday, former FBI Director James Comey exploded in response to President Donald Trump's decision to release the House Intelligence Committee's damning memo that, if true, shows corruption within the FBI and Department of Justice.
"That’s it? Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen," Comey tweeted. "For what? DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs."
Dishonest and misleading? Not according to senior-level FBI officials who still have their jobs at the bureau, unlike Comey. Fox News reports:
Two senior FBI officials have now reviewed a controversial Republican staff memo alleging abuses of government surveillance programs during the 2016 presidential campaign, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News – adding that the officials “could not point to any factual inaccuracies.”
The two officials – one from the bureau’s counterintelligence division and the other from the legal division – followed up after an initial review of the memo during a rare Sunday trip to Capitol Hill by FBI Director Christopher Wray.
As The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro noted, assuming the memo is accurate, "The FBI and DOJ lied to the FISA Court about the grounds for a warrant on Trump foreign policy advisor Carter Page."
President Trump weighed in on the memo, tweeting, "The top Leadership and Investigators of the FBI and the Justice Department have politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats and against Republicans - something which would have been unthinkable just a short time ago. Rank & File are great people!"
