I'm sure there are corrupt agents in the FBI, as there are in any organization, but in this case they had more than enough evidence to investigate. In fact, Page, the focus of the Nunes memo, had been under investigation for his Russian activities since before Trump even ran for office.
The infamous dossier was not the only evidence brought to FISA judges, there was much more, and the judges were even advised that the dossier had political ties. Page himself bragged of his Kremlin ties in years past.
When someone like that is involved in a campaign, and is an advisor to a President, any President, it would be a dereliction of duty not to investigate.
Nunes has been running interference for Trump throughout this investigation.
Nunes is the author of the memo.
Nunes is trying to derail the investigation, and has been from the start.
Their plan, as I see it, is a desperate attempt to show cause for Trump to fire someone, that will result in Mueller being taken off the case, or fired, at the expense of the FBI, via their discrediting the agency.
It is also notable that the Russian propaganda machine, through their social media accounts and web sites, backs this same narrative.
Both US and European intelligence agencies have determined that Russian agents have thousands of social media accounts in which they claim to be patriotic citizens of various countries, including the US, and use those accounts and web sites, to push this corrupt FBI, pro Trump narrative.
It is inconceivable to me that Trump, Putin, and their agents and allies, are the truth tellers, and everyone one else is a member of some secret deep state society that is out to take down Trump, to satisfy some evil agenda.
This situation is exactly what Putin wanted in backing Trump, and it's exactly what he's getting.
He wants the American people to lose faith in their intelligence agencies and the FBI.
He's doing the same in Europe.
