Conway: Trump Will 'Probably Not' Release Memo Before SOTU

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

President Donald Trump will "probably not" release a controversial House Republicans' memo about the FBI before he takes the podium to deliver his first State of the Union address, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday.

However, she told Fox News' "Fox and Friends," Trump will review the memo, which Republicans say shows how the FBI misused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and its authority to get a secret surveillance order against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, during the day.

In addition, Trump has not included the memo in his upcoming speech, Conway said.

The GOP-lead Intelligence Committee Monday voted to release the four-page memo that accuses the Department of Justice and the FBI of missing their authority, according to Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who who announced the action at a news briefing.

Because of a House rule invoked by the committee, Trump now has five days to review the document and decide whether to try to block it from going public, but he is expected to release it.

Meanwhile, Conway said the president is busy today working on the speech, and she believes Americans will be "very uplifted" as it's a "very positive speech."

She said she also wants to focus on the guests who will be attending the address.

"The first lady has put together a wonderful group of guests tonight, and many of them will be mentioned as part of the president's address," said Conway.

Conway on Tuesday also criticized Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, for calling the tax bonuses being give to American workers "crumbs."

"That lady needs to realize it's dough and not crumbs," said Conway. "I was raised by a single mom. She did a great job and had a lot of support. I was raised in a house of all women, and $1,000 would have made a big difference."

Trump also will carry the theme of America being open for business, which he focused on in his speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, into his address Tuesday.

"He will also touch on immigration, on infrastructure, on national security," said Conway. "We simply are more prosperous, more safe and accountable and transparent because of Donald Trump."
