Indian American lawyer Kashyap Patel is the author of controversial Republican memo critical of the FBI


New York sources have stated that Patel drafted the document that asserts that there were improprieties in the FBI probe into alleged connections between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government. Meanwhile the memo prepared on behalf of the Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee was made public on Friday after Trump cleared its release despite opposition from the FBI and the Democrats.

Accordingly Patel is on the staff of Representative Devin Nunes, the Republican who is chairman of the committee. Further quoting sources according “familiar with the memo,” Daily Beast said that Patel “read the highly classified intelligence it’s based on, drafted the memo, and then dealt with FBI and Justice Department efforts to keep it from being released to the public.”

Moreover he formerly worked for the National Security Division of the Justice Department and also joined the committee as a senior counter-terrorism counsel last April. According to sources during a terrorism trial, Patel appeared informally dressed as he had just landed there from Central Asia.
