Lisa Boothe: Increasingly Clear Investigation of Trump Team Was 'Poisoned by Politics'
Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge emphasized that Democrats have alleged key facts were not included in the memo assembled by the office of Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.)
The memo asserts that former FBI official Andrew McCabe stated in closed-door testimony that without the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI would not have been able to secure surveillance warrants.
We now know how right @realDonaldTrump was to declassify the Memo. It shows FBI used a partisan campaign document to get a warrant to spy on a rival campaign. And shows the FBI omitted crucial information from a FISA court. No spin can change those basic facts.

Herridge said the memo alleges the FBI and Justice Department, in their application to the FISA court, used media reporting to lend credibility to the dossier.
She said the memo also alleges that the dossier's author, former British spy Christopher Steele, had a personal animus toward Trump, Herridge reported.
Lisa Boothe reacted on "Outnumbered," arguing that the memo backs up Trump's view that the investigation is rooted in partisanship.
"It's becoming increasingly clear that it is, that it has been all poisoned by politics," she said.
Howard Kurtz pointed out that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is a Republican and appointed by Republicans in the past.
"I don't care. There have been plenty of [Republican] Never Trumpers that hate President Trump," she responded.
