Democrats publish against remembrance of Russian interference

The Democratic congressmen on Saturday published their response to a controversial memorandum drafted by the Republicans in which they accused biased investigations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
"FBI and Justice Department officials have not 'abused' the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), omitted important information, or obtained this vital tool to spy on Trump's campaign," he says. the text of the Democrats, referring to the process by which warrants are obtained.
In their memo, which surfaced earlier this month despite objections from the FBI and the DOJ, Republicans assured that the Democrats-funded investigation prompted the FBI to spy on Carter Page, former - Assistant to President Donald Trump.
"In fact, the DOJ and the FBI would have been negligent in their duty to protect the country if they had not sought a 'Fisa' warrant for a temporary surveillance of Carter Page, someone the FBI classed as a Russian government agent" , adds the Democratic document.
Trump reacted on Twitter: "The Democratic memo's response to government surveillance abuses is a political and legal FIASCO, it simply confirms all the terrible things that have been done. 
"All this witch hunts is an illegal shame ... and Obama did nothing against Russia!" He added.
Deputy Republican spokesman Raj Shah called the memo a "political document" that is "fraught with uncorroborated accusations" and "does not respond to serious concerns" in the Republican text.
US intelligence concluded that Russia tried to influence the 2016 elections that brought Trump to the White House, but the president repeatedly denied any plot with Moscow.
