The House Intelligence Committee has voted to declassify a four-page document written by the committee’s chair, California Congressmember Devin Nunes, in which he claims that, under the Obama administration, the FBI surveilled the Trump campaign. Nunes had to recuse himself from the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, because of Nunes’s close ties to Trump. Nunes served on Trump’s transition team. Democratic lawmakers have accused Nunes of trying to derail and undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign by pushing to release the document, which could now be made public as early as this week. The House Intelligence Committee, however, will not release a competing memo by California Democratic Congressmember Adam Schiff, the highest-ranking Democrat on the committee.
