The Democrats Just Released Their Own Memo About The Russia Investigation. Read It Here.

Democrats released a redacted memo on Saturday that they say rebuts Republican claims that the Justice Department and FBI abused their spying powers in the Russia investigation.

The document, a direct counterpart to a Republican memo released early this month, was written by members of the House Intelligence Committee.

The release comes after President Donald Trump told Democrats they would have to redact the document before it could be made public, delaying it by two weeks.

Democrats argued that they needed to release their 10-page memo to clarify what Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, called “many distortions and inaccuracies” in the Republican memo.
