Amazingly the memo itself vindicates the FBI investigation:
| The FBI's counterintelligence investigation into whether
| Trump campaign officials had improper contacts with Russia
| was triggered by information the bureau obtained about
| George Papadopoulos, a former adviser to the campaign,
| according to the memo released Friday by House Intelligence
| Committee Republicans.
| Allies of President Trump have claimed the Russia probe
| began with the so-called Steele dossier that was paid for
| in part by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National
| Committee (DNC). That would mean the Russia investigation
| itself -- and by extension, special counsel Robert
| Mueller's probe -- was launched from political opposition
| But the memo states that FBI agent Pete Strzok opened the
| investigation in July 2016 based on "information" about
| Papadapoulos, rather than the dossier.
