It’s Monday, February 5, 2018, and this is The Daily Caller Newsroom.
A recently released memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes alleged abuses by the FBI when requesting FISA warrants. The memo alleged that 1. the DNC-funded Steele dossier was an “essential” part of the FBI’s FISA application to spy on former Trump campaign official Carter Page and 2. the Steele dossier’s anti-Trump political motivations were not disclosed in the FISA application.
Members of the media are downplaying the implications of the Nunes memo and think that it should have never been released, but White House correspondent Saagar Enjeti argues that journalists should be thrilled that the information is being exposed.
“All information is meaningful, I mean this is the first FISA warrant ever to be publicly acknowledged by the federal government. Remember, the government is spying on American citizens…this was a pretty radical thing when it happened ten years ago.”
“As a journalist, I think we’re all supposed to like when information comes out that spreads light on what else is happening out there.”
