Memo 'totally vindicates' me — Trump

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes R-Calif. a close ally of President Donald Trump who has become a fierce critic of the FBI and the Justice Department strides to a GOP conference at the Capitol in Washington Tuesday Jan. 30 2018. (A

In two tweets posted Saturday morning, President Donald Trump touted new poll numbers that show a spike in approval ratings and said the recently released Devin Nunes memo alleging bias and surveillance abuses at the FBI "totally vindicates" his allegations that the Russia investigation is unfounded.

The memo concludes the Trump dossier, which was funded by Democrats and an unknown GOP candidate during the 2016 Republican Presidential Primary was 'misused' as a basis to obtain FISA court warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign.

President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to claim the infamous Nunes memo "totally vindicates" him in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. "The dossier was presented to the court as if it was true". Rosenstein is the justice department official with authority to fire Mueller should he find evidence of misconduct.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Minority Nancy Pelosi, and eight other Democrats issued a statement claiming that the memo was an attempt to sabotage the investigation into Russia's interference in the US elections.

The memo, written by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, begins with some stunning language. "I'm really grateful for the opportunity to do it, but it's time for me to - whatever time I've got left - I want to spend it in the justice system because that's where my heart is".

According to the survey, which was conducted February 1 and 2, only 38 percent of Republicans have a favorable view of the FBI. "Rank & File are great people!"

The memo makes their case - and Trump's - that abuses in the early stages of the FBI's investigation made it worse than worthless. "This memo is not an indictment of the FBI or the Department of Justice", Ryan said.

The decision clears the way for the Intelligence Committee to release the memo, reported The Hill.

Mr Page, the Trump aide who was the subject of the surveillance, said he would use the memo in upcoming legal action against the justice department.

Some of that change was witnessed firsthand by Loch K. Johnson, in roles that included staff director of the Subcommittee on Intelligence Oversight for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. However, later in the day, White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah denied any move to oust Rosenstein. "I wish that they were equally concerned about what's not in the FISA application'".

Several people held up signs at the corner of Shaw and Blackstone avenues - in the far northwest corner of Nunes' sprawling Valley district - stating "Nunes must go".

Democrats and Republican Sen. The question is will that be too late to save the Russia investigation. The FBI has said it has "grave concerns" that the memo leaves out important material, creating an inaccurate impression of its work.

Republicans and Democrats continued to argue about the significance of the Nunes memo that Trump cleared for release Friday over the objections of the FBI and the intelligence community.
