DOJ tells Nunes release of memo would be 'reckless'

This week, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd - a political appointee - sent off a letter to the conspiracy addicted Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Callif.

Under House rules, the Intelligence Committee can vote to disclose classified information.

Trump, an official said, has been briefed by aides on the Nunes memo and the process that it would have to go through in order to be released.

A number of Trump-supporting Republicans like Reps.

Democrats, meanwhile, have largely rejected the way Republicans have characterized the memo. Mueller removed Strzok from his team over the summer after learning that the two had exchanged texts expressing a dislike of Trump.

The almost two-dozen-strong steering committee of the RSC voted to make the decision to back the bill, which also would extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, from committee and subcommittee chairmen Bob Goodlatte, Mike McCaul, Raul Labrador and Martha McSally, and warned against cutting a deal with Democrats behind conservatives' backs.

Specifically, the memo purportedly relates to DOJ surveillance activities in the Russian Federation investigation.

The DOJ has continued to call for House Republicans to let the Department see the memo.

Nunes, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, helped write a controversial memo that purports to detail illegal surveillance by the Obama administration during the transition period after Trump's 2016 election.

The White House seems to be open to the idea of Congress sharing a secret memo that Republicans say shows Federal Bureau of Investigation bias against the president.

But others fear a smear campaign and say the document is based on misleading information.

"The public should be able to view the same memo I did".

U.S. Republican Congressman Peter King of NY stated that Nunes absolutely intends to release the document and that the Department of Justice's complaints show that the department's aims were to propel a pre-emptive assault and to leak the FISA memo to its friends in the mainstream media.

"The memo was derived, distilled from information that the Department gave us".

WikiLeaks has offered $1 million in bitcoin to anyone who would share the memo, which meant this was a coordinated attack on US law enforcement.

The "secret memo" was written by staffers for Republican Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. CNN has reached out to a representative for Strzok for clarification and has not yet received a response.

"House Republicans are pressing for the memo's public release and are joining a "#ReleaseTheMemo" campaign on social media that Democrats say is being promoted by the Russian government to discredit the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign. But Schiff said that he thought the better course was for both memos to remain classified.

House and Senate investigators Tuesday were still going through 384 pages of text messages. Inspector General Michael Horowitz has granted the Justice Department permission to share the formerly missing text messages with congressional committees.

"They've seen over a thousand pages of material, " she said, referencing the classified information the DOJ turned over."Maybe they've seen something that we haven't". There is no secret society that is trying to bring the President down. Seems kind of depressing.

"None of the senators have access to it", Lankford added, saying "right" when asked if the committee had been denied access to the memo after making its request. One said that it's worse than Watergate.

Trump told reporters, referring to Nixons secretary, who took the blame for inadvertently erasing part of a taped conversation between him and his chief of staff three days after the burglary at the Democratic Party headquarters.
