The House Permanent Select Committee On Intelligence voted unanimously Monday evening to release the Democratic FISA memo to the public, sending the document to the president to decide whether he wants to approve its release.

Republicans voted to declassify the Democratic memo, which reportedly weakens allegations made in the memo crafted by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. The committee’s unanimous vote sends the Democratic memo to the White House, giving President Donald Trump five days to decide if he wants to declassify and release it to the American public, Politico reported.

While Trump has the power to block the memo from being released, the White House said it would “entertain” the possibility of approving its release.


The four page Nunes memo, put forth Friday, alleged the Department of Justice and FBI made “material and relevant” omissions in applying for a Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant. All Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee voted against releasing the Nunes memo.
