In an blatant effort to hide their crimes against this country, the Department of Justice is pressuring President Trump to make a few changes to the “Nunes memo” before its release. Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants all the names of the guilty parties redacted from the memo before it’s release to the public this Friday.
Investigative journalist Sara Carter blew the lid off the effort to alter the document on Thursday, tweeting:
“… DOJ wants all names redacted from #FISAMemo putting pressure on White House and House Intelligence Committee, government officials say… is releasing names a threat to national security?”
This tactic to protect themselves is just the latest in the DOJ’s long history of attempts to stop the document from being released to the public, which a source told Breitbart would likely happen on Friday.
On Wednesday afternoon, the FBI released a rare statement saying that they had “grave concerns” about the memo:
With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it. As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, the author of the controversial memo, fired back in a statement of his own.
“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,” he said.
Check it out, per ABC News:
Meanwhile, Sessions has faced public criticism from Trump over his recusal and Rosenstein’s subsequent appointment of Mueller.
At one point last year, Trump told reporters he wouldn’t have nominated Sessions to run the Justice Department had he known Sessions would give up oversight of the investigation.
Representative Jeff Duncan tweeted Thursday that the FBI and Sessions’ DOJ were right to have “grave concerns” about releasing the memo:
“Having read ‘The Memo,’ the FBI is right to have ‘grave concerns’ – as it will shake the organization down to its core – showing Americans just how the agency was weaponized by the Obama officials/DNC/HRC to target political adversaries. #ReleaseTheMemo,” he tweeted.
