Pelosi: Nunes memo is 'a total misrepresentation'

The Justice Department inspector general is also working on a report on alleged bias against President Donald Trump in the Trump-Russia investigation.

The vote to release the memo is an unprecedented move by the committee, which typically goes out of its way to protect classified information in the interest of protecting intelligence sources and methods.

McCabe's resignation came hours before the House Intelligence Committee voted to approved the public release of the report. He also said the committee is investigating the FBI and Justice Department, though a Republican disputed that characterization, saying that the panel is conducting oversight of those agencies.

Collins told CNN television host Chris Cuomo that she's concerned releasing the memo would compromise US intelligence sources and methods. So depending on when the Nunes memo becomes public, it could dominate the discussion in Washington and TV airwaves for several days before Democrats' counterpoint is unveiled.

Asked if he was delivering that message to his conference, some of whom have pointed to the memo as reason to disband the special counsel probe altogether, Ryan answered: "Yes".

Some Republicans have questioned whether Mueller's investigation is tainted by partisan bias, and Trump reportedly tried to fire him a year ago. Adam Schiff called it a "very sad day".

If Republican lawmakers contend that someone deliberately undermined that process, then "releasing a memo is nearly farcical", Mr. Rogers said.

"To me, it shows that there are people so fixated on the behavior of this president that they want to ignore all of the things that he and his administration are doing and reduce this presidency to his Twitter feed", Santorum said. FBI Director Christopher Wray traveled to the Capitol on Sunday to read the memo, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told NBC News. "There are meaningful facts laid out in this memo that the American people deserve to see", he said. Steele's work, which was partially funded by Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee, led to a dossier of allegations of ties between Trump and the Kremlin. Sean Hannity told his prime-time Fox News audience that the document, which allegedly exposes wrongdoing by F.B.I. and D.O.J. officials in the decision to surveil former Trump foreign-policy adviser Carter Page, would expose "the biggest political scandal in American history", and that it will "shock the conscience" of Americans everywhere.

In addition to approving the memo's publication, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee voted late Monday to forgo a briefing from F.B.I.

The precise contents of both memos remain unknown. He has also told close advisers that the document is starting to make people realize how the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Mueller probe are biased against him, according to one person familiar with his remarks.

To protect the integrity of the House of Representatives and its role in our democracy, Speaker Ryan must remove Nunes from further participating in the Russian Federation investigation.

Nunes is at the center of a controversy involving a secret memo that some fear could undermine the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation.

Democrats, Mr. Gowdy continued, "went to court to help Fusion GPS, so we can not find out that they paid for the dossier and that they were working for the DNC [Democratic National Committee]. They did everything they could to keep us from finding this information", said Gowdy.
