The ranking Democratic on the House Judiciary Committee is calling for an emergency meeting between the FBI and Justice Department over a contentious GOP memo purportedly revealing FBI surveillance abuses.

In a tweet Thursday, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., posted his letter to chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., urging the sit-down so the bureau and Justice Department could "brief us about their concerns regarding" the memo authored by House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.

"It is imperative that we hear directly from these officials about the security and law enforcement implications of making this information public," Nadler wrote. "It is also important that we hear about any inaccuracies or key omissions from the Nunes document."

President Donald Trump plans to release the Nunes memo despite warnings from the FBI the document contains inaccurate statements and omissions of fact.

"The president is OK with it," a White House official told reporters traveling with Trump aboard Air Force One, The Hill reported. "I doubt there will be any redactions. It's in Congress' hands after that."
