The FBI is publicly calling the Nunes memo 'inaccurate'.

The FBI is publicly calling the Nunes memo 'inaccurate' prior to its release. The memo is likely to be released by the Trump administration shortly.

Via the Daily Beast, the FBI said the following in relation to the Nunes memo:

“With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it. As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy,” the spokesperson said.

Republican lawmakers claims the FBI received their FISA warrant to track members the Trump campaign under false pretenses. Specifically, they claim there was no evidence to justify the FISA warrant for campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

Nunes’ memo alleges anti-Trump forces in senior levels of the FBI and Justice Department manipulated that process to acquire a FISA warrant against Carter Page, a Trump campaign foreign policy official.
