During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, FBI director Christopher Wray confirmed the reports about his apprehension over Devin Nunes‘ FISA memo.
For the last few weeks, it was believed that Wray opposed President Trump‘s decision to release the memo, saying that it would give a partisan-charged “false narrative” about malpractice within his bureau. The memo came up during today’s hearing on global threats to the United States, and Wray expressed his “grave concerns about the accuracy of the memorandum.”
Wray cited “omissions” as his top concern, explaining that he wasn’t sure how thousands of sensitive documents and bits of intelligence could be sufficiently condensed into Nunes’ brief memo.
For the last several days, Congressional Democrats have called on the Trump Administration to let them release their counter-memo, claiming it will add context to Nunes’ findings and address the alleged misuse of FISA surveillance. Trump slammed the Democrats over their memo last week and wouldn’t allow them to release it.
