i'm sarah harmon welcome to the show it's good to have you with us we begin in the united states where a controversial memo that's critical of both the f.b.i. and the department of justice has just been released speaking at the white house u.s. president donald trump confirmed that he had declassified the document it alleges the f.b.i. applied bad evidence get a warrant to spy on a member of his campaign during the twenty six thousand election of a memo was created by republicans and the house of representatives based on classified information the u.s. justice department and the head of the f.b.i. lobbied unsuccessfully to block it's really. all right here's more of what trump has been saying about this memo and its contents i think it's terrible you want to know the truth i think it's a disgrace what's going on in this country i think it's a disgrace the memo was sent to congress it was declassified congress will do whatever they're going to do but i think it's
8:03 pm
a disgrace what's happening in our country and when you look at that and you see that and so many other things what's going on. a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and much worse than that. are for more let's plan our correspondent caroling issue more in washington carolyn of this memo alleges that there is anti trump bias of the f.b.i. whatever dence is that based on. well the report claims that some of the information that led to the f.b.i. surveillance for a member of adult trumps a presidential campaign in the year two thousand and sixteen was information financed by the clinton campaign so the financing by a third actor of the document that led to the f.b.i. surveillance and didn't have a knowledge of this this is what the document shows and this is the only evidence actually of these four pages that i have few in front of me the memo in advance
8:04 pm
being heralded as something of a bombshell do you think we're going to see resignations arising in the wake of this memo well democrats fear that document made the attempt to discredit the inquiry into trying campaign links to russia which is being led by a special counsel robert muller and we should point out that last year trump fire the director of the f.b.i. mr cole me a month ago the vice president there actor of the f.b.i. mr mccabe resigned so now democrats and also independent experts who are not attached to any party suggest that the white house could use this memo to fire mr rosen seen the current deputy attorney general and they could replace him with a more friendly person in order to underestimate the whole investigation the russia there and of course the one who's leading this investigation mr mohler all right so those memos just come out how are democrats responding to the allegations that are
8:05 pm
contained in this memo that the f.b.i. acted in a partisan manner. well they're saying they're the democrats that this whole process has been ignoring the rules of our democracy and in fact if there have been made changes to this memo before it went to the white house it would indeed be undemocratic this document or this document the memo was supposedly changed after it was released by the house intelligence committee and therefore the white house has now released a document that has not been passed by the u.s. congress and this breaks indeed of course the rule of a democracy yes f.b.i. agents the f.b.i. agents association has reacted that's an organization a union of a former f.b.i. agents and they say the f.b.i. special agent has not and will not allow parties and politics to discreate us from our solemn commitment to our mission also republicans have been reacting in
8:06 pm
