House Intel Committee Votes To Release Dem Countermemo. Will Trump Go Along?

House Intel Committee Votes To Release Dem Countermemo. Will Trump Go Along? House Intel Committee Votes To Release Dem Countermemo. Will Trump Go Along?

The Intelligence Committee also voted this week on whether to release the minority response.

"The vote was unanimous to release this", Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee, told reporters.

After Monday's Intelligence Committee vote on the Democratic memo, the president must decide whether to release it, make redactions, or block it, a decision that's supposed to be made on national security grounds.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said today that if the Democratic memo - well, when the Democratic memo is sent, the administration will consider it in the same way that it did as the Republican one.

Congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, blasted President Donald Trump's criticisms of him, telling CNN that the White House chief of staff should "give him a time-out".

But Republican committee members said on Monday they were comfortable with releasing the Democratic document now that it had been reviewed by House members.

The memo confirms the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign began in July 2016, months before the surveillance warrant was sought, and was "triggered" by information concerning campaign aide George Papadopoulos.

Nunes was asked during a January 29 committee meeting whether he had coordinated the memo with the White House.

The vote means the political rancor roiling Congress is likely to continue, as accusations and counter-accusations fly about which party is misrepresenting or misusing sensitive intelligence surrounding the ongoing probe into whether any Trump associates coordinated with the Kremlin to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Hurd maintained the Nunes memo controversy boils down to the issue of whether or not "unverified" information in the dossier was used inappropriately to spy on Clinton's political opponent and his supporters.

Some lawmakers doubt President Donald Trump's claim that a GOP-produced classified memo on FBI surveillance powers clears him in the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump, who denies collusion between his campaign and Moscow, and has dismissed the Russian Federation probes as a witch hunt, used social media to express his views on the memos.

Previously, Trump has fired other top officials involved in overseeing the investigation, including former FBI director James Comey.

Republicans focus on details in the memo that they say confirm people involved with the Russian Federation investigation bear a personal animus against Trump, including FBI investigators and the former British intelligence officer who authored the infamous, unverified dossier about the Trump camp's connections to Russian Federation.

The Republican memo, declassified by the White House on Friday, has fueled a battle between Trump and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which argued against the document's release, citing concerns over its accuracy and the omission of facts.

So says White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"The interest wasn't oversight", Schiff said.

Although the document makes a narrow case about the specific practices involving Page, Trump and his supporters also say it suggests a "systemic" pattern of abuse. The memo also notes the FISA court renewed the warrants involving Page three times, which would have required law enforcement officials to show they were obtaining valuable evidence.
