ON CAPITOL HILL
Report: FBI says explosive FISA surveillance memo ‘accurate’
Democrats ‘did everything they could’ to hide information from American people
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., called it a “very sad day” when the House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines Monday to release the controversial Republican staff memo alleging what some GOP lawmakers are calling abuses “worse than Watergate” of government surveillance programs during the 2016 presidential campaign.”
Schiff, the top Democrat on the intel committee, has called the classified four-page report “misleading and inaccurate.”
However, two senior FBI officials have now reviewed the document and “could not point to any factual inaccuracies,” reports the Fox News Channel’s Catherine Herridge, citing a source close to the matter.
One of the officials was from the FBI’s counter-intelligence division and the other from the legal division. They examined the document after an initial review by FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Former senator Tom Coburn provides the solution to how “we the people” and the states can finally wrest control from Washington insiders in “Smashing the DC Monopoly,” available at the WND Superstore.
After the vote Monday, the memo was sent to the White House for President Trump’s review. He now has five working days to decide whether or not to block its release.
