The raging debate: Did the Nunes memo hurt the Democrats and the Russia investigation? Or, did the Schiff memo undermine Congressman Devin Nunes's allegations and further erodie his own, the Republican House Intelligence and even the president's own credibility?
At issue: Whether the FBI and the Justice Department (DOJ) properly educate the FISA court judges when they obtained and renewed the warrant on Carter Page?
Someone is awfully touchy about what Carter Page might have said on wiretaps and intercepts made by the FBI and Washington is taking sides, as it does in all things pertaining to Donald Trump. Among the various assertions, in the alternative, are that the revelations about the surveillance of Page jeopardize national security; show impermissible bias against Trump by the parties requesting the warrant; and, reflect an overreach of U.S. intelligence, the least likely scenario of all. Page has been targeted before.
