    Trump likely to allow release of Nunes memo on Thursday: Report

    Trump likely to allow release of Nunes memo on Thursday: Report

    by Diana Stancy Correll | Jan 31, 2018, 9:23 PM

    The controversial memo that allegedly outlines surveillance violations by the U.S. government and written by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., will likely be released Thursday, according to a report Thursday evening.

    A White House official told Reuters about the expected date for Trump to provide his consent for the controversial report's unveiling to the public.

    A request for comment from the White House was not immediately returned.

    Dozens of Republican lawmakers have for weeks sought the public release of the memo and claim it contains evidence of violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The memo, which describes classified material from the FBI and Justice Department, reportedly says incorrect statements from “Trump dossier” author Christopher Steele about Trump associates’ connections to Russia were included in an approved application to put Carter Page, a Trump campaign official, under surveillance.

    However, current and former law enforcement officials have said other information was also used to justify the surveillance application. On the other side of the aisle, Democrats have brushed of the information in the memo, calling it “talking points” that are leading a “false narrative.”

    Democrats from the intelligence panel recently announced they would put together their own memo to refute the Nunes memo, but when the committee voted Monday to release the Nunes memo to the public, they rejected doing the same for the Democratic report. The panel did vote to allow the entire House access to the memo from the Democratic side.

    After President Trump was caught on a hot mic right after his State of the Union address telling a GOP lawmaker he would "100 percent" release the Nunes memo, White House chief of staff John Kelly said he expected the memo will be “released here pretty quick.”

    The White House's apparent willingness to release the memo clashes with a rare public statement from the FBI, which warned Wednesday it had “grave concerns” about the classified memo and said it includes "material omissions of fact."

    Get it out today. No more delays. Americans have the right and need to know about these surveillance abuses. Yes, I'm sure the FBI is "gravely" concerned, because people are going to lose their jobs and some of them are going to jail.

    Donald Trump Has Read Controversial FBI Intelligence Memo; Plans to Release on FridayAFP/Getty Images

    A White House official confirmed to reporters that President Donald Trump has read the House Intelligence Committee FISA memo after the committee voted to release it to the public and plans to release it on Friday.

    The official confirmed that White House officials examined the memo to check for classified information, but that the president was comfortable with the release as long as Congress approved it.

    “The president is ok with it,” an official told reporters after they boarded Air Force One with the president after his speech in West Virginia. “I doubt there will be any redactions. It’s in Congress’ hands after that.”

    A second official confirmed to Breitbart News that the document would likely be released on Friday.

    In response, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer demanded Speaker Paul Ryan remove Rep. Devin Nunes as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, accusing him of “dangerous partisanship.”

    Other Democrats protested that Nunes altered the memo before sending it to the White House. But staffers for Nunes dismissed Democrat concerns, noting that they were merely grammatical fixes and two edits requested by the FBI and even Democrats on the committee.

    The F.B.I. has protested the publication of the memo, a vote that was approved by the House Intelligence Committee, however efforts to get the president to block it’s release appear to have failed for now.

    It can't be good for Democrats or it would have already been leaked to the New York Times...
