House Intelligence Committee votes to release controversial GOP surveillance memo

(Worthy News) – The Republican-led House Intelligence Committee voted Monday to invoke an obscure congressional rule to force the release a classified memo written by Republicans that outlines what they say are abuses of federal surveillance authorities.

Ranking member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told reporters that the Republican majority voted Monday night to make the four-page GOP memo public, but voted against the idea of releasing a counter memo written by the Democratic minority.

“[House Intel] voted to release GOP memo publicly and to release the Dem memo for viewing by Members of House of Representatives,” committee spokesman Jack Langer confirmed with the Washington Examiner. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
