Trump accuses Justice Dept, FBI of pro-Democrat bias Timelines: US-Trump, US-Trump gegen MM

US President Donald Trump publicly attacked the FBI’s leadership Friday, accusing them of politicizing their investigations in favor of Democrats as he gets set to approve the release of an explosive memo alleging the agency’s abuse of power.

The extraordinary accusation is the latest salvo in the president’s open conflict with the top US law enforcement agency amid an investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with a Russian effort to sway the 2016 presidential elections.

Trump is expected to give a green light for the the publication of a Republican-drafted memo accusing the agency of abuses in obtaining a warrant to surveil a member of Trump’s campaign team over his contacts with Russian officials.
