President Donald Trump on Saturday said a controversial memo from Republican lawmakers who accused FBI investigators of violating powers in the investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election, proving he was not involved. But the Democratic Party Legislator argued otherwise.
"This memo entirely shows Trump innocent," Trump wrote in Twitter on Saturday (3/2) morning. "But the investigation to find fault continues. No Collusion, no Obstruction. It's a shame to America. "
The House Intelligence Commission on Friday released a memo outlining the accusations of Republican legislators that FBI investigators stepped over the powers in investigating Russian interference in 2016 presidential elections.
A significant portion of the document focuses on a warrant for the Foreign Intelligence Investigation Act (FISA) which allows the investigation of former Trump foreign policy adviser, Carter Page, a businessman with an interest in Russia.
The memo suggests that the document being compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele is an important part of FISA's application to Page. According to the memo, the FBI also did not mention that Steele's document was drawn up by the Democratic National Committee's fund and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and that Steele had issued anti-Trump statements.
