The Nunes memo has been released | Axios

The House Intelligence Committee has released, without redactions, the classified Nunes memo on alleged FISA abuses. The release was vehemently opposed by the intelligence community, with the FBI issuing a rare public statement to express its “grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

What the memo alleges:

  • The dossier authored by Christopher Steele was “an essential part” of the FBI and the Justice Department’s justification for conducting electronic surveillance of Carter Page. It also notes the dossier was funded by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
  • Steele said he was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected.”
  • This “clear evidence of Steele’s bias” wasn’t reflected in any of the applications to authorize the electronic surveillance.

You figure that one out.
