As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

FBI Director Wray Tells White House He Opposes Releasing Memo

According to Bloomberg:

FBI Director Christopher Wray told the White House he opposes release of a classified Republican memo alleging bias at the FBI and Justice Department because it contains inaccurate information and paints a false narrative, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The FBI came close to publicly opposing the memo’s release, saying in a statement Wednesday that it has “grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

The memo on actions early in the probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign is being reviewed by “our national security lawyers in the White House,” who are “slicing and dicing it,” White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said Wednesday on Fox News Radio. But he left little doubt about the outcome, saying the disputed memo will be released “pretty quick, I think, and the whole world can see it.”

The White House has up to five days to decide whether the memo can be released — and whether portions should be withheld — after the House Intelligence Committee voted Monday to make it public. The memo, written by aides under direction of Republican Chairman Devin Nunes, is aimed at raising questions about the validity of the investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia, now led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

    • Right?
      Either the FBI and the left think we are too stupid to add 2+2, and we will be led astray by our naivete; or they are afraid that the shenanigans perpetrated by the FBI will be so glaring that even a blind goat would be able to fully comprehend their perfidy.
      I vote for the second.

  1. Its not about inaccurate information, which begs the question “why” is there inaccurate information in the first place. It is about humiliation. RELEASE the report. It is our right. The general public is smarter than the buffoons leading the FBI.

    • Exactly. There’s doubt in my mind that Wray is getting massive internal pressure in all forms from the Democrat/Hillary moonbat supporters in the FBI and the DOJ. Who knows what specious arguments are being made to justify hiding this incredibly embarrassing (to Democrats and, likely, Obama) document from American citizens? But it’s got to be really, really bad stuff for the Democrats and Obama. Let’s get WiKi leaks to release it. We know they must have it already. ;+]

  2. Nunes’ reply, in a perfect world:

    Tell you what, G-men. First, you guys turn over all your documents that are under Congressional subpoena, some of which you’ve been slow-walking for the better part of a year, and then we’ll talk.

    Otherwise, get bent.

  3. Curious…how do we get from Wray reviewing the memo on Sunday, McCabe departing on Monday and NOW there are questions about accuracy? Something smells fishy…

  4. I smell a dead rat. Release the dang memo. We can figure out truth from lies. First it was inacuate misinformation,now it’s just missing info. Seriously.
