Fbi official statement.
"With regard to the House Intelligence Committee's memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it," the bureau said.
"As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo's accuracy."
So the FBI doesn't agree with a memo that shows the FBI in a negative manner.
Well I am so shocked.
I think (as is shown just in the couple of posts above yours) is that they take issue with certain omission of facts in the memo that paint the picture in a distorted fashion.
Then release the memo, and let the FBI issue another statement explaining what those omissions were. Because right now it just looks like they don't want anyone checking up on them.

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.

What of the fact that Director Wray (you know, the man Trump personally appointed to head the FBI agency) has come out against releasing the memo because its inaccurate and propaganda?

Once again, reporters got burned by believing anonymous Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
Betsy Woodruff and Spencer Ackerman of The Daily Beast credulously believed their “sources familiar with the exchange,” who said Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, refused to deny he had coordinated with the White House when putting together a memo alleging surveillance and law enforcement abuses at the FBI.
In fact, Nunes explicitly denied the charge before shutting down the line of questioning in order to provide other members who were not trying to hijack the hearing time to get actual committee business done.
According to a transcript of the meeting, the Daily Beast’s headline, subheadline, and lede are all false. The headline was “Devin Nunes Won’t Say If He Worked With White House on Anti-FBI Memo.” The subhead was “The House intel committee GOP leader refused to answer behind closed doors if he coordinated with the president’s team on his report blasting Rosenstein, Comey, and McCabe.” The lede is “The Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee refused to answer when a colleague asked him if he had coordinated his incendiary surveillance memo with the White House, The Daily Beast has learned.” But that apparently wasn’t enough, as the Daily Beast even blared “non-denial” above the headline in bright red font.
