02.02.18: GOP surveillance memo


The Republican-led House Intelligence Committee released a memo Friday based on classified information that alleges the FBI abused U.S. government surveillance powers in its investigation into Russian election interference.

President Donald Trump cleared the way for publication of the controversial memo Friday despite objections from the FBI.

The FBI, Justice Department and Democrats have lobbied to stop the release, saying it could harm national security and mislead the public.

Republicans on the committee have said they believe they've uncovered serious misconduct that needs to be made public.
