GOP lawmaker accuses FBI of treason after anti-Trump bias memo released
The release of a controversial House Intelligence Committee memo has prompted one GOP official to claim “treason.”
Republican Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona released a statement on Twitter that alleged the FBI activity detailed in the document is, “not just evidence of incompetence but clear and convincing evidence of treason.”
Pertaining to the people who authorized the surveillance warrant, Gosar says he will co-author a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking for "criminal prosecution against these traitors to our nation."
Justice Department and FBI officials were against the White House’s decision to release this document, saying it’s accuracy had not been fully verified.
The memo claims that an FBI application for a warrant to surveil former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page relied on an unverified dossier put together by a British spy.
