>> the clash between the fbi and the white house growing over the release of the controversial republican memo and any minute now donald trump could make a decision on whether to release it. here is former fbi special agent who joined us to talk more about this.
1:17 am
thank you, we appreciate it. let's get right to the latest, the partial statement from the fbi, they released this yesterday saying we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo's accuracy but originally when nunez first said he was going to release this they said they couldn't dispute any facts within it. what do you think? >> i tell you, when you omit key facts to a document that is a summary of thousands and thousands of documents in itself he omissions can have grave consequences. i think all of us, every american sitting at home right now wants to have full transparency, not partial transparency anymore from anyone in washington and i'm talking republicans and democrats. any politician there are equally
1:18 am
withholding information from the american public. if you take a document, four page summary i could give you a four page summary of the bible but i can omit john 3:16, god so loved the world he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life, jesus and i'm the way, the truth, the life, and other key, critical, completely deceived you of the truth and the only fact that matters that separates christianity from all the religions that jesus is god. that is dire consequences. doing the same thing with a memo of thousands and thousands of documents and paring it down to four pages can completely be misconstrued and have dire consequences. >> the fbi from what i understand, when they went to take a look at the fbi memo on
1:19 am
sunday had 30 minutes and there were two or three other fbi members who took a look at it and they came out with this response and as of late last night a report there were changes made. whether those changes were made by republicans or the fbi out of their concern democrats are saying wait a minute, the memo has been changed. here is what devon nunez had to say in response to the statement. saying having stonewalled congress's demand for information for nearly a year no surprise the fbi and doj issue objections to allowing the american people to see information related to surveillance abuses of these agencies, do you think this is just another effort to stonewall? >> no. it is an effort, you pair down something to four pages and omit key facts you can make it say whatever you want to to say. you can do that and i think the fbi is saying when the american public doesn't have the full
1:20 am
totality of all of the fact if we release a four page memo i'm all for that, let's also release the pfizer application, let's release the woods review file that goes with it that backs every factual assertion in the affidavit. let's release the contents of what the pfizer warrant is gleaning during the investigation, let's see the totality of everything and then the american public, you and me and the second balcony at the state of the union, americans who deserve to hear the truth can know everything. will that happen? that will never happen and that is just being lied to because the politicians in dc, i am just sick and tired of seeing this political ball go back and forth. >> the american people have a right to decide on their own, i agree with you about that 100%. thank you, great to have you join us with your insight. >> appreciate it, have a great
