House Intel committee could vote on Nunes memo as soon as Monday

President Trump has five days to decide whether to block the release of a classified memo that's critical of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice.

"We had votes today to politicize the intelligence process, " said Rep. Adam B. Schiff, D-Calif., the committee's senior Democrat. CNN recently reported that Trump, who appointed Rosenstein, now wants to fire him over the Russian Federation mess, and this memo looks to be geared toward that eventual goal.

She sought to assure that no matter what the President's decision is, "no one here is going to make a decision that jeopardizes national security". The White House could block the release but President Donald Trump has indicated he supports making it public.

The House Intelligence Committee voted Monday to release a classified memo purportedly revealing government surveillance abuses, with Democrats blasting the move and offering up their own memo.

The White House will release a classified memo compiled by House Republicans on the intelligence committee, Chief of Staff John Kelly said on Fox News Radio Wednesday.

The Justice Department, however, has come out against the memo's release before the agency can review the classified material in it. They says it's part of a Republican effort created to distract from, and undermine, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference and whether those around Trump colluded in it.

"The FBI takes seriously its obligations to the FISA Court and its compliance with procedures overseen by career professionals in the Department of Justice and the FBI", the FBI's statement said.

The Lister Motor Car Company may be one of the less known British sports car makers, but their latest project may help with that. It can sprint from 0 - 100 km/h at just over three seconds and is capable of reaching speeds of over 320 km/h.

"It'll be released here pretty quick I think and the whole world can see it", he said.

Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has routinely clashed with and criticized Trump, suggested that firing Rosenstein would provide the president the same dire results as former FBI Director James Comey's abrupt firing.

The fight over the memo underscores a broader concern among USA intelligence agencies that the political tussles could cause longtime allies to share fewer intelligence reports.

Boyd, in a letter to Congressman Devin Nunes, the chairman of the Intelligence panel, said the Republican push to release a memo would be "extraordinarily reckless".

The Nunes memo may add yet another top law enforcement official, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, to the administration's enemies list, according to the New York Times.

While the panel voted to release that memo to the entire House, Republicans expressed concern that publicly releasing the minority memo would damage sensitive intelligence sources and methods, according to Rep.

So far, the official said, the Justice Department is the only agency opposing its release.
