Trump Claims “Total Vindication” From Nunes Memo

The Hill reports:

President Trump took to Twitter Saturday to react to the release of a previously classified memo alleging abuse of government surveillance powers by the Justice Department, claiming the memo “totally vindicates him” and assailing the Russia investigation as “an American disgrace.”

The memo, released Friday, accuses senior Justice Department officials of improperly using information from the so-called Steele dossier to obtain surveillance warrants on Carter Page, a member of the Trump transition team and former Trump adviser.

Trump on Friday approved the release of the memo, despite objections from top officials at the FBI and Justice Department. He called its revelations disgraceful. “I think it’s a disgrace,” he told reporters. “A lot of people should be ashamed of themselves.”
