Mueller is the key? I think 911 is a little above his pay grade as fbi director




Pretty much yes. He covered up the Saudi's involved there in Florida.

Why would he have done that kind of thing?


He was told to by the doj?

After the SOTU address, one of the Republicans asked Trump if he was going to approve the release of the memo, and Trump responded "Absolutely, 100%." So it's definitely coming.

FBI officials review surveillance memo, could not cite 'any factual inaccuracies': source

Two senior FBI officials have now reviewed a controversial Republican staff memo alleging abuses of government surveillance programs during the 2016 presidential campaign, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News – adding that the officials “could not point to any factual inaccuracies.”

The two officials – one from the bureau’s counterintelligence division and the other from the legal division – followed up after an initial review of the memo during a rare Sunday trip to Capitol Hill by FBI Director Christopher Wray.

The House Intelligence Committee voted late Monday along party lines to release the memo, prompting a backlash from Democratic lawmakers. Top Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff called it a “very sad day.” President Trump has five working days to review the contents but is widely expected not to block its release.

After the contentious committee vote Monday night, the source confirmed that House staffers physically took the memo over to the White House for the president.



and from the DOJ (same article) -

Senior DOJ officials also had the opportunity to review the memo at DOJ headquarters on Monday.

The Justice Department, in a Jan. 24 letter from Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd, originally had called the Republican staff memo’s release “unprecedented” and “reckless.” Boyd also stated, “Though we are currently unaware of any wrongdoing relating to the FISA process, we agree that any abuse of that system cannot be tolerated.”

But DOJ officials told Fox News on Tuesday that parts of that memo are now "moot" -- specifically the term "reckless," as DOJ and FBI officials have now had the opportunity to review the document.

Fox News is told the memo was “drafted deliberately to eliminate national security information” that could be damaging if viewed by individuals outside Congress.


So both agencies say it is accurate and the DOJ retracted parts of its memo they sent to Congress about the release being reckless. Apparently their view changed when they got to review the memo.


Fox News is told the memo was “drafted deliberately to eliminate national security information” that could be damaging if viewed by individuals outside Congress.


Sooo yeah.

Isn't this also from your article.


The FBI offered no comment to Fox News regarding bureau officials’ review of the document. Senior DOJ officials told Fox News after this story first posted, however, that they “dispute the characterization” that no inaccuracies could be cited.


Also the doj has not said it's accurate or inaccurate. They have gained access.

As far as I am concerned this is an opinion piece with no proof but "sources"

Here is another msm narrative.


FBI Director Christopher Wray has reportedly warned the White House against releasing the classified GOP House Intelligence Committee memo, saying that some of the information in the document is inaccurate.

A source familiar with the situation informed Bloomberg that Wray told the White House that the memo "paints a false narrative." Republican lawmakers say the memo provides proof that the Department of Justice abused a surveillance program to unfairly target a member of the Trump campaign.


Now not saying one is more accurate. But it sure sounds like speculation on both parts.
thehill.com...


Democrats and Senate Republicans have opposed the publication of the memo, as have top Justice Department officials.

So neither department has actually said what you are inferring from the speculation.

In the end it will be released in its entirety. The decision belongs to Trump and not the FBI / DOJ.

Possibly.

Also possibly with a cloud hanginger over.

I see you have made up your mind regardless of not having read it or considering the authors expanded the fisa program without allowing a debate.

Not really... What made my mind up is the decision to release the memo has already been made by Rep. Nunes and the intel committee. Trump has 5 days to object to its release. If he does not object it is released. If he does object it goes to the full House for a vote. Given the number of Republicans who read it and stated they want it released its going to be released.

No idea however im not sure why you think that is relevant.

You don't think knowing what the memo is based on is relevant?

It's simple. Only a few people have access to the Intel the memo is based on.

The last people I am going to believe are politicians. The proof should be presented.

Again the Republicans already read the memo and called for its release. It is going to be released at which point everyone under the sun will call it a fake or cherry picked or a russian plot.

Sure. It's possible. Unless it harms their political career because the doj and fbi publicly state it's inaccurate (whether or not it's even true)

Some of us actually care about the truth not just harming the opposition.

Guess we will wait and see.

IMO its a done deal and will be released.

Is anybody really worried about how "our secrets" were collected?

I'm sure Obama's bunch already sold that information to the highest bidder, or left backdoors open so they could get it themselves.

Hell! Our own FBI was letting contractors with no clearance access stuff, weren't they?

Nah! Release the da*n memo. The People have spoken.
