The House Intelligence Committee has voted to declassify a Democratic memo that refutes the arguments of the controversial, now-released memo of committee chair Devin Nunes. The Nunes memo purports to show the FBI and Justice Department abused their authority by placing Trump campaign adviser Carter Page under surveillance in 2016 over his ties to Russia. President Trump supported its release despite the objections of the FBI. President Trump will now have five days to decide whether to try to block the release of its counter memo, written by Congressmember Adam Schiff, the highest-ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.
