House Intelligence Committee Votes to Release FBI Memo, Dem Says

The House Intelligence Committee’s Republican majority voted Monday to release an explosive memo alleging abuses by the FBI agents investigating Russia and the Trump campaign, the panel’s senior Democrat said. “According to the majority, the FBI is under investigation and the Department of Justice," Rep. Adam Schiff told reporters after the vote. He said Republicans voted to release their memo but not release a report by Democrats on the same subject. "I moved, if the majority were going to release [their memo], they release the minority views as well; that they be released jointly," Schiff said. He called Republicans' vote a partisan move designed to hamper the Russia investigation. The memo will likely not be released for several days, The Daily Beast previously reported, because of a process that gives House can declassify the document during which time the president can object.
