Gowdy breaks with GOP memo, sees no impact on Trump-Russia probe

Controversial Republican memo alleges FBI abuses during 2016 campaign but appears to be no smoking gun

Panetta, a Democrat who also served as defence secretary under President Barack Obama, said it would be "a big mistake" if Trump moved to fire Rosenstein or Mueller.

Instead, the document confirmed that contacts between a former Trump foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, and Russian intermediaries were a primary factor in the opening of the investigation in July 2016.

If a rebuttal memo from Rep. Adam Schiff is released by the House Intelligence Committee, it is likely to add detail, where possible, filling in this picture of the genesis of the probe.

Many Democrats are keeping a keen eye on how Trump reacts to the memo and fear a Watergate-like clearinghouse maneuver at the Department of Justice could throw the country into crisis. The top levels of both the FBI and Department of Justice opposed the memo's release, citing concerns that key elements were missing.

The Nunes memo is a thinly disguised rehash of conspiracy theories that is intended to harm the FBI and give Trump the pretense he needs to fire Rod Rosenstein.

A crowd cheers as US President Donald Trump passes by in his motorcade on his way to his Mar-A-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, February 3, 2018. Asked in the Oval Office on Friday if he still had confidence in Rosenstein, Trump said: "You figure that one out". The nine states are California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, and the District of Columbia has a similar plan on the table. Simpson told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Steele had stopped working with the FBI because he was concerned about leaks to the press, particularly after an October 31 story published by the New York Times claimed that the FBI had not found a link between Russia and the Trump campaign. In fact, the administration, that is, the FBI, "had separately authorized payment to Steele for the same information", according to the memo.

Trump remained curiously silent on his favorite social media network following the release of the memo on Friday afternoon.

"This is as rich constitutionally as it is politically. I actually don't think it is has any impact on the Russia probe for this reason". "Rank & File are great people".

The memo makes clear that DoJ and FBI officials relied on the ridiculous "piss-gate" dossier filled with Kremlin-supplied misinformation about President Trump's virtually nonexistent ties to Russia to obtain surveillance warrants from the secret court.

"This memo totally vindicates 'Trump' in probe", the president wrote in a tweet yesterday morning.

The editorial accused the FBI of using the FISA court and the phony opposition dossier funded by Hillary Clinton to influence the election. Too bad tarring and feathering isn't practiced anymore; it worked wonders for the Founders.

-There is no recognition the intelligence community already had Page on its radar screen as early as 2013.

"The Democratic Party pretends to care so much about national security, to have such faith in the FBI's stewardship of it, and such diffidence of the American people's capacity to judge such matters, that its leading spokesmen have joined the agencies' demand on Trump". "And that's not a fact". No, it isn't, not by a long shot.

"There is a Russia investigation without a dossier", Gowdy said.

The memo release escalates a clash with the man Trump picked to lead the FBI, Christopher Wray, after firing James Comey as agency director. She posted a video on her app that showed her mother, Kris Jenner, giving birth to her and ended with a message about her own baby.
