House Intelligence Committee Votes To Release Controversial Memo
The memo alleges the FBI and Justice Department abused their authority.
The House intelligence committee voted to release a secret and contentious memo that reportedly accuses the FBI and Justice Department of abusing their authority.
The memo, written by Devin Nunes, alleges the FBI overstepped its bounds when it used the Steele dossier to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant for President Donald Trump's former campaign adviser Carter Page.
Republicans on the committee voted not to release an opposing memo written by Rep. Adam Schiff. Democrats say the Nunes memo is meant to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.
Trump now has five days to review the memo and decide if he wants to release it to the public — something he's indicated he would like to do.
