After weeks of controversy, the memorandum drafted by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) has finally been released. You can read the full memorandum for yourself on the House document server.

None of the original source material was released with the memorandum, making verification of the memorandum’s claims impossible. Additionally, the FBI claims that Nunes, who authored the memo, has never personally seen many or most of the original documents the memorandum was based upon because they were housed in a secure facility that was only accessed by fellow committee member Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.). With all that having been said, here are the some of the claims found in the memo:

  • The memo claims that on October 21, 2016, the FBI and the Department of Justice sought and obtained a FISA “probable cause order” on Carter Page.
    • Although the Nunes memo omits this information, Carter Page stepped down from his role on the Trump campaign in late September of 2016, which means that at the time of the initial FISA warrant application mentioned in the memo, Page had no connection to Trump or his campaign. Thus, the memo does not purport to demonstrate that the DOJ or the FBI spied on the Trump campaign or any member thereof.
