Leadership of FBI & Justice Dept politicized investigative process in favor of Democrats — RT US News

Donald Trump has lashed out at the leadership and investigators at the FBI and the Justice Department, saying that they politicized “the sacred investigative process” in favor of Democrats and against Republicans.

The US president attacked both authorities on Twitter by saying that their political bias is “something which would have been unthinkable just a short time ago.”

Trump’s accusations come just as the White House is expected released a secret memo alleging FBI bias against the US president. On Monday night, the House Intelligence Committee approved the public release of the memo. 

The memo reportedly contains information on surveillance violations by both the agencies. It is alleged the FBI sought a warrant to spy on then-presidential candidate Trump’s associates, without disclosing that its decision was based on the Trump-Russia dossier, also known as the Steele dossier, funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

The FBI has objected to the memo’s release, expressing “grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.” DOJ warned that the release could “harm national security”.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, who commissioned the memo, described objections from the FBI and the Department of Justice to the paper’s release as “spurious.”

Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies,” Nunes said earlier this week.
