House Intel Committee Voted To Release The Memo – Here’s What People Are Saying

On Monday evening, Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee utilized a rarely used procedure to declassify a top secret memo, which allegedly details surveillance abuses by the Obama administration.

According to Ranking Member Adam Schiff, via Washington Examiner, the vote for the memo’s release fell along party lines:

The four-page memo put together by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., allegedly details how Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein sought the renewal of a federal court-authorized surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

Also reportedly named in the memo are outgoing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former FBI Director James Comey.

By invoking House Rules 10 — which the Congressional Research Service has said has never been invoked before — the memo can now be made public so long as President Trump does not explicitly object within the next five days. The White House has indicated Trump might support the release of the memo, but wasn’t specific on Monday about how Trump would decide.

The decision to release the memo came after Republican members of the entire legislative body petitioned for the memo’s release.

Here’s what some people are now saying:

Now-former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s resignation could have been connected to the memo’s release and more FBI resignations could be expected –
