GOP chairman says FBI probe broke public trust

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - House Intelligence Committee Republicans say they found "serious violations of the public trust" by intelligence and law enforcement agencies investigating Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.
  
That's according to committee chairman Devin Nunes. The California Republican sent out a statement after his committee released a controversial memo detailing what he says are abuses of power at the FBI and Department of Justice.


  
Nunes says he hopes the release "will shine a light on this alarming series of events" and spur "reforms that allow the American people to have full faith and confidence in their governing institutions."
  
The FBI had warned against releasing the memo. Democrats say the allegations are made solely to discredit the investigation.
