FBI Director Chris Wray: We Still Have 'Grave Concerns' About Nunes FISA Memo

Source: Mediate

During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, FBI director Christopher Wray confirmed the reports about his apprehension over Devin Nunes‘ FISA memo.

For the last few weeks, it was believed that Wray opposed President Trump‘s decision to release the memo, saying that it would give a partisan-charged “false narrative” about malpractice within his bureau. The memo came up during today’s hearing on global threats to the United States, and Wray expressed his “grave concerns about the accuracy of the memorandum.”

Wray cited “omissions” as his top concern, explaining that he wasn’t sure how thousands of sensitive documents and bits of intelligence could be sufficiently condensed into Nunes’ brief memo.

For the last several days, Congressional Democrats have called on the Trump Administration to let them release their counter-memo, claiming it will add context to Nunes’ findings and address the alleged misuse of FISA surveillance. Trump slammed the Democrats over their memo last week and wouldn’t allow them to release it.

3. These FBI men are being underestimated by

the thugs in the White House. These are men and women who have devoted their lives to the law and they are not about to stand by and watch this White House obstruct justice and pervert the rule of law.

The Trumps are used to dealing with corrupt cops and lawyers, and public officials in NYC with their hands out. They are attempting to spread their corruption throughout the government and are succeeding with the notable exception of the Intel community and the FBI. We'll see about the Justice Department. It's open warfare between the serious public servants in Washington and the Trumpists.

8. I would say they're being accurately estimated

and that's why President Asshole is trashing them and maneuvering to fire Mueller.

He knows he has to bring them to heel and make them a compliant arm of his Admin. Notice how we don't hear jack from the CIA?

11. I wish I had your confidence.

For decades, the FBI under Hoover was the primary instrument of political oppression in this country. There's no reason to believe that can't happen again.

Trump knows he's in a race to neuter them before Mueller can complete his investigations. If he can decapitate them, install handpicked administrators, and there's an ensuing mass exodus of ethical employees, why not?

It's working at State, Interior, Justice, the EPA...

7. Why can't the dems release their memo?

Why can't they submit it to the FBI/CIA for redaction of any classified parts? I don't see why they have to take Trump as the final word, they're a co-equal branch.
