White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Wednesday said the controversial House intelligence FISA memo will get "released pretty quick."

Kelly made the comments to Fox News radio host Brian Kilmeade during an interview at the White House.

The contentious memo was authored by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, and it reportedly accuses the Justice Department — namely deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein — for abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and its application regarding Carter Page, whom the DOJ suspected of acting as a Russian agent.

"The memo came over, we've got our folks . . . our national security lawyers in the White House who work for me, work for the president; they're slicing and dicing it, looking at it so that we know what it means," Kelly told Kilmeade.

"It'll be released here pretty quick, I think, and the whole world can see it," said Kelly, adding he did see the memo.

President Donald Trump, however, has not seen the memo, the White House said.

Trump was caught on a hot mic vowing to release the memo, which has been the subject of a contentious debate and pitted Trump against his own Justice Department.

Kilmeade asked Kelly what will change the day after the memo comes out.

"I'll let all the experts decide that when it's released," Kelly said.

Kelly praised Trump for his transparency.

"This president has said from the beginning, certainly since I've been the chief of staff, I want everything out. I want the American people: A, to know the truth; and B, that the investigators have everything," Kelly told Kilmeade.

"It's really unique that we've leaned so far forward to get this out," Kelly said.
