Ex-CIA Officer Says ‘Piece Of Trash Memo’ Would Have Stopped Him From Reporting Info On Russia And Trump

The long-talked about memo was finally revealed on Friday and it drew even more criticism. Former CIA officer Robert Baer blasted the “piece of trash memo” during a panel discussion on Friday, adding that if he were an agent at the moment he would “think twice” before handing over any information on Russia and President Donald Trump.

Baer claimed that the memo undermines the FBI and targets their agents for reporting information.

“I’m worried about the FBI,” Baer admitted to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “If I were an FBI agent in the field now and picked up some information on Russia that was damaging to the president or even helpful, I would not report it. I would think twice about it.”

“I left the CIA—same thing,” he continued. “I reported stuff on Russian money coming into the campaign and, as the messenger, I became the target and I resigned from the CIA. It’s as simple as that.”

“What you’re having is an agency we depend upon to stop terrorism, FBI agents are putting their lives on the line,” Baer added. “You look at this—I’m sorry—it’s a piece of trash, this three-and-a-half-page memo. There’s nothing classified in it. It’s a partisan attack on the FBI. It’s going to do our institutions serious damage and I really worry about it.”
