Nunes Memo 'Altered' Before White House Got It, Adam Schiff Says

Donald Trump

Costa believes Nunes is trying to run cover for the president, casting aspersions on the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Muller, and risking the lives of agents in the field. "It's like touching it with a pole makes you dirty yourself, you don't even want to touch something like this because of how risky it is". We are committed to working with the appropriate oversight entities to ensure the continuing integrity of the FISA process.

Nunes responded "Only-yeah. It is to make the content available, is what we will do". It was the first time the bureau has weighed in publicly on an issue that has openly divided the Justice Department and the White House. Recently, much of that anger has been directed toward his Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller and the Russian Federation investigation.

The Justice Department has warned repeatedly that the memo, prepared by Republican staff members on the House Intelligence Committee, is "misleading" and that its release would set a bad precedent for making government secrets public, including sensitive sources of information and methods of intelligence gathering. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray (who was appointed by Trump after he fired previous director James Comey) reportedly warned the White House that releasing the memo could set a risky precedent.

The FBI's statement was issued just hours after the President made clear he wanted the document public.

It is not clear to what extent the document was modified, or how meaningful the changes may be, though the letter describes the changes as "substantive", and says they were ones Committee members were "never apprised of, never had the opportunity to review, and never approved".

Approached by a representative who urged him: "Mr President, let's release the memo", Trump was heard to reply: "Don't worry, 100%".

Goodell says National Football League will look at controversial catch rule
And regarding rules on players standing for the anthem? It plays well to his base, and Goodell shares a lot of that same base. The National Football League was created in August 1920, virtually 98 years ago.

The House Intelligence Committee voted to release the highly-classified memo Monday, and President Trump later confirmed his intent to approve the document's publication this week.

"As far as any concern about national security, this was shown to the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and some of his top aides on counterterrorism, intelligence and they could not find one factual error in the memo, and they could also not find any threat at all to national security", King, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News' co-host Bill Hemmer. (The FBI provides resources for Mueller and the second-in-command at the Justice Department, Rod Rosenstein, supervises him.) "President Trump has started the clock on the Rosenstein firing watch", GOP strategist Evan Siegfried told Politico. Russian Federation and Trump have both denied any collusion. He could argue that Rosenstein failed to scrutinize the information initially used to request the warrant and therefore didn't do his due diligence. He has also broken long-held protocols by directly calling Justice Department officials, and instructed his chief of staff to do the same, without the White House counsel on the phone.

As CNN has previously reported, the President has vented recently about wanting to fire Rosenstein.

The House Intelligence Committee voted earlier this week to release the memo to the public, with its members voting strictly along party lines. Officials have been unable to say whether anyone inside the White House worked with Nunes or House Republicans on the document. However, one possible hold-up is that Schiff says the memo has been changed since the committee voted to release it.

Sanders said a legal and national security review into the memo continues.

The memo is now in the hands of the White House, which under the committee's rules has five days to decide after it is received whether the memo should be public or object to its release.
