A congressional committee could release a controversial Republican memo today alleging FBI bias against President Trump and his associates. Congressman Don Bacon has read and is backing the release saying the public needs to know if there is abuse of power.
Congressman Bacon says, “I think this will show that there was malfeasance and there were people that were using our judicial system, we’ll just say it that way, or law enforcement against political opponents not to the way it should have been done. There should have been more cross checks and it looks unfair to me as I read this four-page memo what was done.”
The memo was written by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. The Justice Department is accused of abusing their Surveillance powers in investigating Russian collusion during the 2016 Trump campaign. The FBI is also concerned about the release of the memo. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is calling for Nunes to be removed from his position after he “disgraced’ the intelligence community and “abused his position” by threatening to release the memo.
The White House says President Trump will not block the release of a memo. Congressman Bacon agrees saying it should be released and transparency is important.
