In an effort to shield themselves from public scrutiny, Hillary’s pawns at the Federal Bureau of Investigation are pressuring President Trump to do one clever thing before the release of the “Nunes memo.” FBI Director Christopher Wray wants all the names of the guilty parties removed from the document before it’s release sometime on Friday.
“BREAKING: @FBI Director Christopher Wray and DOJ wants all names redacted from #FISAMemo putting pressure on White House and House Intelligence Committee, Government officials say… is releasing names a threat to national security,” investigative journalist Sara Carter tweeted on Thursday.
This tactic to protect themselves is just the latest in the FBI’s long line of attempts to stop the document from being released to the public, which a source told Breitbart would likely happen on Friday.
On Wednesday afternoon, the bureau released a rare statement saying that they had “grave concerns” about the memo:
The FBI takes seriously its obligations to the FISA Court and its compliance with procedures overseen by career professionals in the Department of Justice and the FBI. We are committed to working with the appropriate oversight entities to ensure the continuing integrity of the FISA process.
With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it. As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, the author of the controversial memo, fired back in a statement of his own.
“Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies,” he said.
“The FBI is intimately familiar with ‘material omissions’ with respect to their presentations to both Congress and the courts, and they are welcome to make public, to the greatest extent possible, all the information they have on these abuses. Regardless, it’s clear that top officials used unverified information in a court document to fuel a counter-intelligence investigation during an American political campaign. Once the truth gets out, we can begin taking steps to ensure our intelligence agencies and courts are never misused like this again.”
Representative Jeff Duncan tweeted Thursday that the FBI was right to have “grave concerns.”
“Having read ‘The Memo,’ the FBI is right to have ‘grave concerns’ – as it will shake the organization down to its core – showing Americans just how the agency was weaponized by the Obama officials/DNC/HRC to target political adversaries. #ReleaseTheMemo,” he tweeted.
Do you think Trump will cave to
FBI Director Wray’s demands?
Will the public see the names in the document?
