Rep. Jerry Nadler slams GOP memo condemning FBI as 'misleading'

Rep. Jerry Nadler said Tuesday that a controversial GOP memo being kept under wraps that alleges bias within the FBI that is “profoundly misleading.”

Nadler, a Democrat from New York and the ranking member of his party on the House Judiciary Committee, accused Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) of using classified material to build a memo on a “conspiracy theory.”

“Too many of our colleagues appear to be constructing their own version of history — completely unrelated to the facts as you and I understand them — based, at least in part, on this memorandum,” Nadler wrote in a letter to Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.).

Some Republicans have embraced the memo as proof that there is a political bias against President Trump within the Justice Department and the FBI.

Nunes and his fellow GOPers have been weighing whether to make the memo public.

The DOJ and the FBI have been denied access to the report despite requests, according to reports.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the President would support the release.

“We certainly support full transparency,” she said. “It sounds like there’s some members in the House that have some real concerns with what is in that memo and feel strongly that the American public should be privy to see it.”
