WH: Dems' FISA Memo Going Through 'Same Process' as GOP's

(C-SPAN)

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that the Democratic response "is going through the same process and procedure" that the Republican memo released last week alleging FBI and Justice Department surveillance abuses in the Russia investigation.

"The American people can expect the exact same process," Sanders told reporters at the daily briefing. "We're in the middle of that process."

The House Intelligence Committee voted unanimously Monday to release the Democratic memo, sending it to the White House for a legal and national security review.

Sanders told reporters that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein met with Trump to discuss the differences between the Democratic and Republican documents, but would not say if the president was for or against releasing the Democratic document.

President Trump has five days to decide whether to allow the memo's publication.

Republicans on the Intelligence Committee, chaired by Rep. Devin Nunes of California, released its document Friday after Trump's approval.

It alleged the warrant obtained by the FBI from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page was based on an unsubstantiated dossier of negative information on the Republican presidential candidate.

The dossier was prepared by former British agent Christopher Steele and was paid, in part, by the campaign of Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The Clinton data was never disclosed in the application for the FISA warrant, according to the GOP memo.

Trump has since tweeted the Nunes document "totally vindicates" him in the Moscow probe.
