Trump-Russia: Republican memo accuses FBI of abusing power
February 2, 2018 3:24 pm
The US Congress has released a memo accusing the FBI of abusing its power in its investigations into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
The memo, written by Republicans, alleges the FBI used unsubstantiated evidence to spy on a Trump aide.
The FBI had warned against the memo’s release and said key facts had been omitted.
Democrats said it was aimed at derailing ongoing investigations into the Trump campaign’s links with Russia.
The memo has become a flashpoint in the bitter dispute between Republicans and Democrats over investigations into whether Russia colluded with the Trump campaign in the 2016 election.
