The full text of the Trump and Nunes infamous anti-FBI memo was just released

- Februari 02, 2018

The Nunes memo has been released, and it’s clear now that the Republicans have desperately overplayed their hand in an attempt to shield Trump and discredit the FBI.

The memo is a brief summary of classified information alleging FBI surveillance abuses, but has been divorced from the underlying intelligence and as such is said to be deeply decontextualized and biased. Until the Democrats are able to release their counter-memo, providing more context and explanation, we are only getting a part of the story.

That said, the part of the story that we are getting isn’t very damning for the FBI. It shows that former Trump associate Carter Page was placed under surveillance under FISA laws.

It also states that George Papadopoulos, another Trump team member, was under investigation before Page, undermining the Republicans’ narrative that Page was unfairly targeted and exploited to surveil the Trump campaign. Papadopoulos has since pleaded guilty for lying to the FBI.

Twitter was less than impressed with the contents of the memo.
