FBI Director Christopher Wray sent his own memo to bureau employees after a Republican memo detailing surveillance of the Trump campaign was made public Friday.

BBC News obtained a copy of Wray's message, in which he said, "Talk is cheap."

"The American people read the papers, and they hear lots of talk on cable TV and social media. But they see and experience the actual work you do — keeping communities safe and our nation secure, often dealing with sensitive matters and making decisions under difficult circumstances. And that work will always matter more," Wray said.

"Talk is cheap; the work you do is what will endure."

Wray went on to explain how the FBI takes pride in its work and that he considers it "an incredible privilege to work beside you — and that I'm determined to defend your integrity and professionalism every day."

BBC senior North America reporter Anthony Zurcher posted a copy of the message on Twitter:

Written by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the memo that was declassified and released midday Friday discusses how the Department of Justice secured a top secret FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page. Nunes alleged that a dossier on President Donald Trump and a news article were among the items used as probable cause.
