The controversy over the FBI’s bias against Donald Trump is not going away.
The President is on the verge of releasing a memo that details how the Bureau abused the FISA process to spy on members of his Presidential campaign.
And the FBI Director may have threatened the President in this awful way.
The Deep State is terrified of the Nunes memo.
It outlines the Obama administration and the FBI’s abuses of power in spying on Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign.
After the House voted to make the memo public, Donald Trump had five days to declassify it.
The FBI strongly objected to the American people being able to judge for themselves if the Bureau crossed the line in using the fake news Christopher Steele dossier to obtain warrants allowing them to spy on the Trump campaign.
And CNN reported that new FBI Director Christopher Wray may resign if the memo was made public.
“Top White House aides are worried FBI Director Christopher Wray could quit if the highly controversial Republican memo alleging the FBI abused its surveillance tools is released, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation tell CNN.
Wray has made clear he is frustrated that President Donald Trump picked him to lead the FBI after he fired FBI Director James Comey in May, yet his advice on the Nunes memo is being disregarded and cast as part of the purported partisan leadership of the FBI, according to a senior law enforcement official.
Wray’s stance is “raising hell,” one source familiar with the matter said.”
But once it became clear Trump was intent on releasing the memo, the sources who spread these rumors began to walk them back.
NBC Politics contradicted CNN’s reports:

It’s clear the report of Wray wanting out was nothing more than a desperate attempt by some to try and block Trump from releasing the memo.
It’s understandable that Wray – and those who are sympathetic to the FBI – don’t want the American people to read the Nunes memo.
The FBI was once was a trusted institution.
But the memo will make clear that the Obama administration corrupted the FBI and weaponized its leadership against Donald Trump.
