Trump Released The Memo That Was Supposed To Discredit The FBI And People Are Freaking

By Aimee Lutkin

Donald Trump is being investigated for possible collusion withe the Russian government during the election. Everyone suspects he loves Putin far more than he loves the U.S. Either that or a certain rumored Pee Tape is hanging over his head?

Trump has seemingly been trying to fight the allegations by firing investigators and bringing up Hillary Clinton. The GOP, in particular Republican David Nunes, is also working to support his cause. A group of Republicans have been cooking up a "memo" that states the FBI is biased against their president. Thus, any information they gather is false. Presto, change-o, innocence!

The memo was released on Friday to Fox News and the Washington Examiner. It argues that the Steele dossier was what first directed the FBI to start tracking Trump's campaign advisor Carter Page. However, the FBI has been investigation Page since 2013, and argue that the memo is just choosing a series of details without further context to try and discredit the DOJ and FBI. They think Nunes hasn't even read the dossier.
