FBI Agents Association blasts ‘partisan politics’ after House publishes Nunes memo

Published

on

The FBI Agents Association on Friday slammed the “partisan politics” surrounding the release of Devin Nunes’ controversial memo after the House Intelligence Committee published the document over the objections from leading law enforcement officials and members of Congress.

“The men and women of the FBI put their lives on the line every day in the fight against terrorists and criminals because of their dedication to our country and the Constitution,” the organization’s president Thomas O’Connor said.

“The American people should know that they continue to be well-served by the world’s preeminent law enforcement agency,” he added. “FBI Special Agents have not, and will not, allow partisan politics to distract us from our solemn commitment to our mission.”

Donald Trump on Friday accused “top leadership and investigators of the FBI and the Justice Department” of “[politicizing] the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats.” He added the “rank and file are great people!”

Trump’s criticism came after FBI Director Christopher Wray—the president’s own pick to lead the bureau—on Thursday said he has “grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

The FBI Agents Association issued a statement in support of Wray, writing, “The FBI Agents Association appreciates FBI Director Chris Wray standing shoulder to shoulder with the men and women of the FBI as we work together to protect our country from criminal and national security threats.”

Fox News a threat to American democracy and national security, a CNN contributor explained on Saturday.

Garrett Graff was interviewed by CNN's Ana Cabrera about a new piece he wrote for Wired titled, "Fox News Is Now a Threat to National Security."
