"fbn:am" starts right now. connell: how about that. look at the time. 501 on the east coast. look at the day ahead at the first of february.
lauren: how about that. happy february. connell: concerning your home. i'm connell mcshane hussein for sharon is out for the next few days. lauren: connell tried to get in the makeup chair this morning but we got over it. rising tensions on the surveillance memo. fbi urging the white house not to release it. raising stakes in russian investigation. the document contains allegations that top officials during a palm administration abused the authority to obtain surveillance on members of president trump's campaign. connell: the committee headed by devin nunes come by devin nunes, the republican voted to release the memo written by republican staffers. then the fbi put this statement now. the fbi was provided a limited opportunity to review the memo the day before the committee voted to release it. we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact are the fundamentally impact the
memos accuracy. the president overheard on his way and for the state of the union where he appeared to support the memos released. the way it works to hear, the white house has five days to decide whether or not they will release the memo but could move obviously sooner than that. lauren: so funny to see democrats protect the fbi and law enforcement. meanwhile, the fbi conduct also being questioned in another probe. "the wall street journal" reporting andrew mccabe knew thousands of e-mails related to the hillary clinton private e-mail server investigation and a new offense for a month before then director james comey from congress. that seemed congress. does he most found in former congressman anthony weiner's laptop.
alike is the subject of an investigation by the justice department inspector general. the "washington post" reported "washington post" reported mccabe met with fbi director christopher ray to discuss the doj investigation prior to the announcement of his resignation. connell: one pack about what david bruno was kind enough to join us this morning. good to see you. get to a storyline mentioned in a moment in the journal. let's start of course at this memo as we may see it as early as today. so the argument, which you know of course, but the argument is a four-page memo by republican staffers, which they say now according to the fbi statement we put up and it could be at best misleading, at worst inaccurate because of underlying information that's classified, which we don't have access to. would you make of the argument that it shouldn't come out because we don't have all the information could be misleading.
>> first of all, the fbi could be bracing for the impact of the memo and we see it with the fbi statement and deputy air mccabe's resignation this week. this memo in conjunction with the inspector general report that lauren brought up is very damning and the fbi will take it on the chin in many different levels. it is today and i think that's the motivation for this statement we saw yesterday. connell: you're essentially making the argument for transparency. the other side said full transparency would be something we couldn't have purchased to solve the classified information is based on. >> so long as the sources and methods are not deadbolts. sources meaning actual names or intelligence has come from. connell: the classified information we don't have. we don't see the memo based on the classified information.
why should we still see the memo based on the classified information? that changes the argument could make it inaccurate or misleading. >> they will have, the dems will have an opportunity to get their own memo out in the fbi has the ability as we saw yesterday with press releases to get information out. transparency is what nuñez is all about and that's why the memos being released. connell: adam schiff made the argument type democrat on the intelligence committee that the republicans altered this memo before it was released. your take on that. >> a rebuttal to doubt rebuttal to that was there with some grammatical changes in the others were at the others were at the request of the dems and the fbi. there's been a statement to rebut the allocation. trades of all kinds of russian news in the papers this morning. "new york times" has a lead
story zeroing in on the cover-up of the don junior making comments about that is something a lot of people are reading. why mention "the wall street journal" story that brings us back to the clinton e-mail investigation and stay in the fbi sat on those e-mails on anthony's laptop for about a month. when you make of that? >> that is coming out in inspector general report. review in the hillary clinton investigation for a year now coming any day as well. that is carried into the fbi, how it handled it in mccabe is probably the reason why he resigned earlier this week. there's been reports that director ray had told him he is subject to the report and it was a move in preparation for that news. connell: go watch all of this threat today and get some movement later that day. good to see you. david purnell, thanks a lot. lauren: is going ahead to west virginia to speak at the annual

lauren: some of these republicans retiring at doing so because there were many different reasons, but they want to focus on campaigning, but getting stuff done in 2018. it seems there is resistance for everything they do. the message for the the democrats is a pose, pose, opposed. >> absolutely. my theory is trey gowdy has done television long before congress. he wanted to go back to the justice system. good news for democrats they have a chance to put a new message out there and try to get some games. really it is a nasty time in politics. a lot of people looking to move on and do new things. hopefully it will be more than the land from a speech we heard the other night. lauren: am glad you brought that up because they brought back a dynasty, a kennedy and a clayton to respond for his state of the and its not working.
