In a statement, Republican congressman Devin Nunes of California reiterates his allegation that the FBI abused a secret surveillance process to spy on a campaign adviser to President Donald Trump, Carter Page.
The Democratic memo, written by Nunes’ colleagues on the committee, seeks to rebut those claims in part by detailing allegations of Russian attempts to cultivate Page as a spy.

In response, Page calls the memo “misinformation” and “the latest smear campaign” by Democratic Party loyalists.
Trump dismissed the memo as “a total and legal BUST,” criticizing it in a series of tweets Saturday.
