Trump Expected To Authorize Release of Nunes Memo As Early As Tomorrow Morning
Returning to the White House from his speech earlier today at the GOP retreat in West Virginia, President Donald Trump was bombarded with questions about the controversial memo on the South Lawn as he exited Marine One.
Obviously, what the press wanted to know was if he was going to release the four-page document that the FBI has already stated they have “grave concerns” about. While the president was tight-lipped as he walked across the lawn, Fox News’ John Roberts had already reported that Trump had authorized the release of the memo for tomorrow morning.

Also, the New York Times reported today that the president cleared the way for Congress to release the memo and that he “would likely not request any material be redacted.” The House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines earlier this week to release the memo, which purportedly reveals FISA abuses within the Russia probe.
The FBI and Department of Justice have issued dire warnings about the document, claiming that besides being inaccurate, the memo is missing key context.
