Ron DeSantis Wants FISA Memo About Trump Dossier Released

Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., argued Friday that a top-secret memo detailing government surveillance practices should be released to the public.

DeSantis was asked about the memo, which some people suggest could clear up whether the infamous Trump dossier was used to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on members of the Trump campaign, during an appearance on "Fox and Friends."

"I'm reading it and it's a very succinct, straightforward memo, and there were a couple times as I'm reading this thing where I'm just like shaking my head. You've got to be kidding me. I can't believe they did that," DeSantis said.

"So I think it's something that is really significant. I think that the American people need to see it. There's growing support in the House to make this public so that the American people can see."

DeSantis noted that the memo is classified but does not contain anything that could expose intelligence-gathering sources and methods.

He noted the Trump dossier is "one of the central issues in the memo, and I definitely want all Americans to be able to read what actually happened in that respect."

Multiple committees in Congress are investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. A separate Department of Justice probe is doing the same thing.

President Donald Trump and many Republicans claim the investigation is a with hunt and will not produce any evidence of collusion.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted about the issue Friday, asking for lawmakers to make the memo public.
