Trump, FBI on collision course as secret memo’s release loom Timelines: US-Trump, US-Trump gegen MM

Washington braced Thursday for the release of an explosive memo alleging abuse of power in the FBI’s probe of Donald Trump’s campaign, which has magnified tensions between the White House and the government’s premier law enforcement body.

A White House official told AFP that Trump has read the memo, and Fox News and other media reported Wednesday he has decided to allow the release of the highly classified document before the weekend.

The four-page memo was written by Republican lawmaker Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and purports to show the Justice Department and the FBI as deeply politicized, anti-Trump agencies.
