Trump slams Justice Dept, FBI, accuses them of pro-Democrat bias
WASHINGTON ― Several Republican lawmakers on Sunday said that despite claims by President Donald Trump and some of their colleagues, a GOP-authored memo critical of the Russia investigation doesn't undermine the need for the probe to continue.
The memo says an "essential" part of the FISA application was the "dossier" assembled by former British spy Christopher Steele and the research firm Fusion GPS that was hired by a law firm attached to the Clinton campaign.
"The FBI Agents Association appreciates FBI Director Chris Wray standing shoulder to shoulder with the men and women of the FBI as we work together to protect our country from criminal and national security threats", said O'Connor.
But there is nothing frivolous politically or morally about the publication of the Nunes memo, which I believe is the manifestation of a chilling conspiracy between the White House and its most supine supporters on Capitol Hill to aid the Russians and undermine the nation's law enforcement and intelligence apparatus.
The U.S. Justice Department has backed Special Counsel Robert Mueller over a lawsuit filed against him by Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, and argued that the case should be dismissed. Moreover, one wonders what the threshold is for securing a warrant.
Denying that Trump intended to interfere with the Russia probe, White House spokesman Raj Shah said: "No changes are going to be made at the DOJ". The Department of Justice thought so. "We are honest people and we did this in that way". Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) warned that using the memo as justification to kill the ongoing investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia could "precipitate a constitutional crisis".
"We write to inform you that we would consider such an unwarranted action as an attempt to obstruct justice in the Russia investigation".
"The president is ok with it", the official said.
What is the memo all about? On ABC's This Week, Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) said, when asked by host George Stephanopoulos whether he thinks the memo vindicates Trump, "I don't".
It's unclear why the president put his last name in quotation marks, although he often speaks of himself in the third-person, and the tweet used the word "their" instead of "there".
Moments before, Trump sent a tweet that trumpeted a new approval poll and took a dig at the news media.
"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".
The Department of Defense on Friday revealed a new strategy for American nuclear policy focused on building up smaller nuclear weapons that are easier to use.
Republicans blocked the release of the Democrats' memo in a vote last week. Only it is far more sinister. No judge would allow it into evidence, no expert witness would rely on it for an opinion, no one would swear to its contents under penalty of perjury.
Hours after the memo was released, Wray issued a statement to the bureau's workforce: "Talk is cheap; the work you do is what will endure. But if you're trying to argue that Steele's funding sources ruin the credibility of his research, his professional training and background make that an uphill battle".

Trump's call might work at odds with a bipartisan group that is readying a separate overhaul measure for the coming floor debate. This was the most depressing, for it displayed a hopelessly divided government and people - and a president deepening the rift.
