Targeted: House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
Donald Trump gave the OK for a partisan memo that accuses the FBI of having political bias against him in a blatant attempt to cloud the discussion about the investigation into his campaigns potential collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 election. The memo, written by Republican staffers on the House Intelligence Committee, accuses the FBI of not informing the FISA court about the source of a document used to get a wire tap on Trump confident Carter Page, but that is demonstrably false and was easily refuted by the FBI.
