House Could (And Probably Will) Vote to #ReleaseTheMemo Today or Tonight

Good.

The president can veto a vote to release the memo (on national security grounds) but he's not expected to do so.

A key House committee is set to vote as early as Monday on whether to make public a classified memo that top congressional Republicans say details government surveillance abuses -- and has emerged at the center of a power struggle in Washington.

Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump "dossier" played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one President Trump associate.

While the White House seems to favor the memo's release, the Justice Department has pushed back hard. Sources told Fox News' Catherine Herridge that FBI Director Christopher Wray went to the Capitol on Sunday to view the four-page memo.

According to one source, Wray was asked to point out inaccuracies or other issues with the wording -- and said he would need "his people to take a look at it." The source said the review is ongoing.

But South Carolina GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy, who helped write the four-page memo, said Sunday he wants it made public.

He also suggested the memo indeed addresses whether the FBI relied at least in part on the dossier -- paid for partially by Democrats and the Clinton campaign during the 2016 presidential election -- to apply to a secret federal court to get a surveillance warrant, purportedly on then-Trump adviser Carter Page.

"Commenter," a rando who saw that interview and who probably has several forms of sexual dysfunction, said that Trey Gowdy essentially confirmed that yeah, Hillary's Oppo Dossier was used to get the FISA warrant.
