(Newser) – Last week, President Trump released a classified Republican memo detailing alleged wrongdoing by the FBI over the objections of both the FBI and Justice Department. Now, he's prepared to release the classified Democratic rebuttal to that memo, Politico reports. According to CNN, Trump told reporters Friday that the 10-page memo written by Rep. Adam Schiff is "going to be released soon." He didn't give any further details. The Republican memo was written by Rep. Devin Nunes, chair of the House Intelligence Committee, and accused the FBI of improperly obtaining a warrant to run surveillance on Carter Page. A House panel unanimously voted to approve the release of the classified Democratic rebuttal on Tuesday. (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
