Shep Smith nails Devin Nunes: His FBI memo is just another ‘act of mass distraction’ to protect Trump (Raw Story)

Fox News host Shepard Smith on Wednesday said that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was just creating a diversion from the Russia investigation by pushing for the release of a controversial memo about the FBI.

The memo purportedly contains evidence of FBI surveillance abuse related to the investigation. But the agency said in a statement that the memo was misleading and inaccurate.

“FBI officials are raising concerns about the accuracy and the possible release of the Republican memo on the Russia investigation,” Smith reported. “The FBI released a rare public statement this afternoon that reads in part ‘as expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.'”
