Rep. Dave Joyce, a Republican from Ohio, declared Saturday that the House Intelligence Committee “plans to begin” the release of the memo that allegedly contains revelations about U.S. government surveillance abuses.
His tweet is promising for dozens of conservatives who have rallied in recent days for the four-page memo to be made available to the general public. They suggest it contains evidence that the Obama administration used FISA warrants to spy on both the Trump campaign and transition team — charges Obama officials have long denied.
“Great news! Our efforts to #ReleaseTheMemo have been effective and the HPSIC plans to begin the process to release the FBI/FISA/Russia memo,” Joyce announced.
He added that the process may take up to and beyond 19 congressional work days.
Great news! Our efforts to #ReleaseTheMemo have been effective and the HPSIC plans to begin the process to release the FBI/FISA/Russia memo. This may take up to 19+ Congressional work days but Americans deserve to know the truth.
