This is a fast breaking story. Please keep checking back.
The Memo has been officially declassified by the White House, with NO redactions.
Fox News is reporting that the Memo was key to the FBI’s FISA warranty to surveil (“spy”) on the Trump Team during the election and after. A massive Constitutional violation. Possibly even treasonous.
Remember when Trump said he was wiretapped? Today we are reading the proof.
Here's more, from CNBC:
A Republican memo alleging anti-Trump bias at the FBI and U.S. Justice department was declassified Friday. There was no immediate indication of when the memo would be made public.
The House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines this week to approve releasing the memo, assembled by panel Chairman Devin Nunes, to President Donald Trump and then to the public. Nunes also worked on Trump's transition team.
The president has declassified the document in full, the White House said. Trump later told reporters that he had sent the memo to Congress. There are no redactions.
The memo suggests that a dossier assembled by former British spy Christopher Steele, which alleges salacious ties between Trump and Russia, was used as evidence for an application to extend surveillance against former Trump advisor Carter Page, NBC News has reported. One former high-ranking law-enforcement official, however, told CNBC that it's "just not credible" that the Steele dossier served as the only source for the extension as "these applications always cite multiple reasons for surveillance."
