President Donald Trump believes that a memo by a House of Representatives committee alleging that the FBI abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) should be released because "we certainly support full transparency," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday.

"As we've side many times before on a number of different issues, we certainly support that transparency," she told reporters at the daily briefing.

"It sounds like there's some members in the House that have some real concerns with what is in that memo and feel strongly that the American public should be privy to see it."

Rep. Devin Nunes, the California Republican who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, and GOP staff members prepared the memo, according to news reports Monday.

The document focuses on the FBI's use of a dossier on Trump and Russia by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, alleging that the FISA judge who signed off on the dossier was not given full information about it, including that Democratic sources later paid for it.

Sanders said that she was not aware of whether President Trump had seen the House memo and that he would not have to sign off on it should the committee release it.

"We support full transparency on the matter."
