Democrats on the U.S. House Intelligence Committee finally released a ten-page memo on Saturday defending the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
The memo was posted on the panel’s website on Saturday. It criticized the Republican memo that was released earlier this month, calling it a “transparent effort to undermine” investigations by the FBI, Justice Department and Mueller.
In a statement, Schiff said: “The Democratic response memo released today should put to rest any concerns that the American people might have as to the conduct of the FBI, the Justice Department and the FISC. Our extensive review of the initial FISA application and three subsequent renewals failed to uncover any evidence of illegal, unethical, or unprofessional behavior by law enforcement and instead revealed that both the FBI and DOJ made extensive showings to justify all four requests.”
