President Donald Trump said Friday he has signed off on the release of a memo crafted by House Intelligence Committee Democrats that rebuts a GOP document claiming abuses by the FBI and Justice Department in the early phases of the Russia probe.
“It’s going to be released soon,” Trump said. “We’re going to be releasing a letter soon.” That letter must accompany the returned copy — possibly redacted — to the House panel to explain his decision.
The decision comes exactly one week after Trump approved the release of a controversial memo from the panel’s Republicans. It is not yet known if it will be heavily or partially redacted.
Trump ordered the GOP memo, which critics say was compiled in a way to discredit the Justice Department’s special counsel investigation, released with not a single letter blacked out.
