You're just being pedantic. The memo was written around facts. This is confirmed by pretty much everyone in DC.
That is a logical fallacy. It doesn't mean anything of substance.
Us peons aren't privy to the background evidence yet but I've seen enough confirmation to know that it's legit.
Sure you have.
How many times do you want to ask fruitless questions to deflect from what has actually happened here?
Asking what this memos provides in the way of proof is a deflection?

Thank you; I tried. The whole thing is just an accusation of a convoluted, twisted plot within the FBI/DoJ to abuse power. I personally believe the information until shown otherwise, but I am anxious to see this new Democratic memo that is supposed to come out. I'm hoping some of the supporting documents are released as well.
There are a few details I left out, but it basically comes down to a shot across the bow of a corrupt justice department. Time will tell if that shot was a bluff or a warning.
The FBI obtained the recordings after Sporyshev attempted to recruit an FBI undercover employee (“UCE-1”), who was posing as an analyst from a New York-based energy company.
After leaving Merrill Lynch in 2008, Page founded his own investment fund, Global Energy Capital with partner James Richard and a former mid-level Gazprom executive, Sergei Yatsenko. The fund operates out of a Manhattan co-working space shared with a booking agency for wedding bands, and as of late 2017, Page was the firm's sole employee. Other businesspeople working in the Russian energy sector said in 2016 that the fund had yet to actually realize a project.
