Experts See Republican Memo As Interesting. But Maybe Not In The Way The GOP Hoped
BuzzFeed spoke to Ballard Spahr litigator Stephen Stigall for an article on the Republican memo, released Friday, about the federal investigation of President Donald Trump. The memo clarifies that the FBI investigation into the 2016 election was triggered by information about George Papadopoulos, a Trump campaign adviser who met with Russians in early 2016 and is now cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller.
“The public has been given kind of half a loaf,” said Mr. Stigall, a federal prosecutor in the Justice Department’s national security unit from 2002 to 2017. “You don’t know what else was in those warrants.”
