POLITICO contacted or reviewed statements by the committee's 13 Republicans, and found near-unanimous support for making public the memo, which Democrats call a misleading effort to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Trump's ties to Russian Federation.
The scathing letter from the DOJ denies any abuse of FISA courts or other surveillance systems by the Department of Justice or the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In other words, the chairman of the Intelligence Committee is seeking to compromise America's national security.
"I haven't looked at the memo, and I haven't seen the memo", he said.
Tottenham on verge of acquiring Inter Milan target from PSG
PSG are open to offers for the Brazil worldwide this month and are willing to let him go for a fee in the region of £23m. Where he ends up might depend on who is willing to spend upwards of £35 million to sign him this month, however.
The House Intelligence Committee had already voted to give the "memo" to all of the House members and that the Department of Justice's objection was nothing more than political grandstanding, the source continued.
Democrats have called the memo "profoundly misleading" and have said its factual allegations are taken out of context. "(This report) might speculate, and the speculations could be really wrong, and it could do huge damage to national security".
Five House Intelligence Committee Republicans who responded to a Lawfare survey said they'd vote to release the memo to the public (Nunes was not included).

Nunes' deliberate interference with a criminal and counterintelligence investigation, potential release of classified information and attempts to maliciously discredit the FBI should not be tolerated - especially coming from the Intelligence Committee chairman, who is supposed to be above partisan politics and is entrusted with the nation's secrets. "He is confident that there was nothing improper like what this memo seems to allege".
The Nunes document focuses on the FBI's use of a dossier on Trump and Russian Federation by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, alleging that the FISA judge who signed off on the dossier was not given full information about it, including that Democratic sources later paid for it. An FBI application for a warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in connection Mueller's investigation allegedly relied at least partially on the dossier. If he does object, the question could come before the full House.
