Two anonymous FBI sources say there are no inaccuracies in the GOP intelligence memo

January 30, 2018

  The now infamous GOP intelligence memo is currently sitting on the President’s desk waiting for his decision on whether to release the memo or not. Democrats have been railing against this memo, claiming it is full of lies and GOP talking points designed to undermine the Russian investigation and call into question the FBI and the Department of Justice.

  However, according to this story two anonymous sources within the FBI are claiming they could find on inaccuracies with the memo. Here is more:

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. 

But some Department of Justice officials said this “characterization” is not true:

The FBI offered no comment to Fox News regarding bureau officials’ review of the document. Senior DOJ officials told Fox News after this story first posted, however, that they “dispute the characterization” that no inaccuracies could be cited.  

Senior DOJ officials also had the opportunity to review the memo at DOJ headquarters on Monday.

  This all comes from anonymous sources so take it for what it is worth. We are all just speculating at this point but the Democrats seem to be very worried about what is in this memo. This has been hyped up so much at this point that I am getting the feeling we are going to be let down when we see what is in it.

  I do find it interesting that the senior Department of Justice officials who “dispute the characterization” that no inaccuracies could be found did not come out and say the whole thing was false…

    I agree there is to much hype around this memo. I think the memo needs to be presented via a tv/internet special program. Get someone like Lou Dobbs to have Gowdy and Nunes walk us through the memo and explain in detail their findings.

    Does it even matter? No one regardless how dirty one may be will ever be brought to task.

    My comment goes on the Marx Brothers; WordPress here is acting up, as usual.
