A showdown is brewing in Washington as the White House prepares to release a controversial Republican memo despite opposition from the FBI, the Justice Department and Democratic lawmakers. The four-page memo, written by House Intelligence Committee chair, Republican Congressmember [Devin] Nunes of California, purports to show that the FBI abused its power when it began surveilling Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in due to his dealings with Russia.
The memo is expected to lay blame on the actions of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the same man who is the only official with the authority to fire special prosecutor Robert Mueller. This comes as the White House appears to be preparing to release the memo.
Can you imagine that? This is not the first time House Intelligence Chair [Devin] Nunes has been at the center of a controversy. Nunes later walked back his recusal. Marcy, explain exactly what this memo is. It targeted somebody the campaign got rid of because of his ties with Russia.
We can assume that it therefore downplays other things that we already know about, for example, that Carter Page, inwas being recruited by Russians. And FBI kind of kept tracking him in the interim period because they were worried about his ties with the Russians. We assume that there are a number of other sources for the FISA application.
And again, those are all going to be downplayed in the four-page memo. Well, Marcy Wheeler, can you explain a little more why the Republicans and Trump want this memo released? Well, they want to find an excuse to fire Rod Rosenstein.
Rod Rosenstein—there are actually conflicting reports about when the last of these applications was submitted. It was either March or April. And explain exactly what that last part is, why they want to get rid of Rod Rosenstein and how that will get them to Mueller.
Rosenstein is his supervisor, because Jeff Sessions is recused. And so, you need to, A, remove Rosenstein, and then put in somebody who would be willing to fire Mueller.
People talk about the EPA director. And why, Marcy, do the Democrats not want this memo released?
Well, they argue two things. And so, normally, everybody on the House Intelligence Committee kind of goes overboard protecting sources and methods, protecting the secrets that they learn in the course of their business.
And in this case, Nunes has thrown that all out the window. It was discussed with the release of the torture report. It would have been appropriate to use it with the torture report.

It is not used, because normally when the intelligence committees want to release something, they go in a back-and-forth discussion with the underlying—with the agencies, in this case, FBI. When it was passed, Congress envisioned that sometimes defendants who were collected on, using FISA warrants, would get to review the underlying dossier, would get to review whether the application was fair.
But no defendant in history has ever gotten that review. But it is something that I think Congress should revisit—should have revisited, by the way, in the reauthorization that was just passed a couple weeks ago. But the precedent would be, I think, useful. And I wanted to ask you about the sort of bigger issue here.
It seems like the tables are turned. The Democrats, at least progressives, have been fierce questioners of the FBI over the decades and about the national security state going—you know, overreaching, to say the least.
I meant to say progressives.
And all of the same people pushing to get this memo out, starting with Devin Nunes, Trey Gowdy, the entire Republican side on the House Intelligence Committee, they all pushed to have FISA reauthorized without any reforms.
So, you know, these people who are pushing for this memo to come clean—to come out really do not care at all and do not—cannot believe that the FBI is an abusive agency, because if they did, they would not have reauthorized this legislation.
This is exclusively about trying to invent a reason to discredit the Mueller—the Mueller investigation. And, you know, will it affect oversight, going forward?
You know, I meant to say progressive activists, not even Democratic congressmembers, when it came to being concerned about FBI and intelligence and NSA overreach.The page you are trying to access has moved. The Connecticut State Department of Education has a new website.
