House intel votes to release Democrats memo.

WASHINGTON, Feb 6 (KUNA) -- The U.S. House Intelligence Committee unanimously voted Monday to release the Democrats rebuttal 10-page memorandum that challenges claims that federal investigators "improperly" obtained a surveillance warrant on a former Donald Trump campaign adviser. According to news reports, the classified memo is written to "push back against the central allegations of the Republican memo from Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes." President Donald Trump has five days to review the Democratic memo and determine whether to release it or not. Following the vote, top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Congressman Adam Schiff told reporters "the majority found themselves in a insupportable position when they released a misleading memo and refused to release the Democratic response, so I think they were compelled to take the action they did today and we think this will be very useful information for the American people to see." A US House Republican committee four-page memorandum alleging surveillance abuses by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was released on Friday stating that its findings "raise concerns with the legitimacy and legality of certain (Justice Department) and FBI interactions with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court."
