Trump Blasts FBI Leadership For “Politicizing The Sacred Investigative Process”

Trump Blasts FBI Leadership For “Politicizing The Sacred Investigative Process”:

After a week of intense speculation, Speaker Paul Ryan has backed President Trump’s wish to release the infamous “FISA Memo” on Friday (despite Nancy Pelosi’s demands that its main architect, House Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes, be moved from his position), the president pushed back against accusations that he’s politicized federal law enforcement, claiming that the FBI’s leadership is truly to blame.

“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. Rank & File are great people!,” the president said in the first of two tweets.

In the second, he included a quote from Judicial Watch head Tom Fitton about the Democratic skullduggery that was involved in the creation and funding of the memo, which may have been used improperly by the FBI to secure a FISA warrant against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“‘You had Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party try to hide the fact that they gave money to GPS Fusion to create a Dossier which was used by their allies in the Obama Administration to convince a Court misleadingly, by all accounts, to spy on the Trump Team.’ Tom Fitton, JW”

Republican leaders have pushed back against Democrats’ objections by calling for increased transparency at the law enforcement agencies.

As reported on Thursday, Trump reportedly has viewed the memo and been briefed on its contents. Once he signs off, it will be up to Nunes and his peers to deliver the final OK.

Meanwhile, the FBI has promised to release a rebuttal of the four-page memo that it says provides crucial details and context for the information compiled by Nunes, while also warning that the bureau has “grave concerns” about the memo’s release. Meanwhile, one Republican lawmaker said the FBI is right to be concerned – because the revelations in the memo will “shake the FBI to its core”…

Some of Trump’s critics have warned about the national security implications of releasing the memo over the FBI’s objections. Former CIA Director Leon Panetta even went so far as to say the release could even trigger “a constitutional crisis,” during an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd.

Nunes has said the memo contains evidence of “egregious abuses” of the FISA power by the FBI during the Obama era.

On Thursday, Rep. Jeff Duncan said that “Having read “The Memo,” the FBI is right to have “grave concerns” – as it will shake the organization down to its core – showing Americans just how the agency was weaponized by the Obama officials/DNC/HRC to target political adversaries.
