Nunes fires back at corrupt FBI trying to cover-up the memo: "it’s clear that top officials used unverified information in a court document to fuel a counter-intelligence investigation during an American political campaign"

Nunes went on to push for the memo’s release.

“Once the truth gets out, we can begin taking steps to ensure our intelligence agencies and courts are never misused like this again,” he said.

FBI Director Christopher Wray, who was appointed by President Trump last year, reportedly warned the White House against releasing the classified memo. Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee voted this week to make the memo public.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly made a similar plea to White House chief of staff John Kelly this week that releasing the memo could put classified information at risk.

The committee’s vote gives Trump five days to review the document and make a final decision about its release.

Trump was heard telling a Republican lawmaker after Tuesday’s State of the Union address that he is “100 percent” for releasing the document.

House Republicans have clamored for the release of the document, saying it contains evidence of bias against Trump in the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Democrats have authored their own document rebutting the Republican memo, but Republicans members of the Intel panel voted against its release earlier this week.
