Outgoing Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy expressed his ongoing confidence in the Justice Department and the special counsel despite "serious concerns with the FISA process."

The House Oversight chairman, who Wednesday announced he would retire at the end of his current term, also tweeted he remains "100 percent confident in special counsel Robert Mueller."

Gowdy was reacting to the memo released by the House Intelligence Committee that outlined what it called abuses of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications regarding surveillance on former campaign aide Carter Page.

Democrats, meanwhile, see the memo's release as a "charade" that will be used by President Donald Trump to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and oversees his work in the Russia investigation.

"The president is looking for a reason to fire Bob Mueller; the president is looking for a reason to fire Rod Rosenstein," House intel ranking Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff said. "The White House knows it would face a firestorm if it fired Bob Mueller. What's more effective is to fire Bob Mueller's boss. Now, why is that more effective? Rod Rosenstein decides the scope of Bob Mueller's investigation."
