"Heads absolutely should roll" once the public learns the contents of a memo outlining alleged abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by the Obama administration, Rep. Dave Joyce, who has seen the document, said Monday.

"You know, 25 years I've been in law enforcement before I got here in 2013, and I can tell you I read it twice just to make sure I read it properly, and it was deeply disturbing," the Ohio Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends," while not outlining exactly what he had seen.

The four-page report was made available to the full House last week, reports The Washington Post, and according to unnamed sources, it claims ex-British spy Christopher Steele lied to the FBI.

However, it claims that a dossier Steele wrote was used in a FISA warrant allowing the federal agency to spy on President Donald Trump's campaign adviser, Carter Page.

Joyce said he thinks termination would be the least of the worries people named in the document should have. House Republican leaders are considering the release of some of the intelligence behind the memo.

"The four pages are because the House Intelligence Committee, led by Chairman Devin Nunes, has spent hundreds of hours synthesizing this into what is a very easily readable document that every American can have the opportunity to review and make their own determination," Joyce said. "Once you do, you'll be surprised at how bad it is."

Trump, he added, did not give up his Constitutional rights once he was elected, and "we need to make sure that the documents are accessible to everyone so they can understand, whether it's President Trump or the everyday guy in the street. The Constitution applies to us all."
