Asked about the issue on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday, Marc Short, the White House's head of legislative affairs, said that if the memo outlined serious concerns, "the American people should know that". "Let's start with four pages", Mr. Davis, Illinois Republican, said on CNN. The release of the memo would come based on a seldom-used House rule that allows a vote to consider declassification of sensitive material.

Trump and his Republican allies have placed special emphasis on the classified memo, which was written by staff for House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and suggests that the FBI may have relied on politically motivated or questionable sources to justify its request for a secret surveillance warrant in the investigation's early phase.

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has said he opposes making the memo public and is pushing for a vote to make available to House members a secondary memo prepared by Democrats on the committee that is said to attest to the impartiality of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DoJ.

Trump "has always been mistrustful" of Rosenstein, and is reportedly telling associates he is frustrated with the deputy attorney general, the Times reports. That dossier was financed in part by the Democratic National Committee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. In a letter to the Intelligence Committee last week, Stephen E. Boyd, an assistant attorney general, warned that, absent an official review, releasing the memo would be "extraordinarily reckless" and posed a "risk of harm to national security and to ongoing investigations".

Because the memo is classified, a final decision on its release would fall to President Trump, who would have five days to make a decision. The committee has 13 Republicans and 9 Democrats, making it highly likely that the committee would vote to release the memo.

Now a group of Republicans are calling for the secret report to be made public alleging it shows bias against Trump and his administration.

Idsinga said Lisowick was an occupant of the shelter system who had not been reported missing. The ensuing investigation has required an "unprecedented" number of resources, police said.

Trump is now again telling associates that he is frustrated with Rosenstein, according to one official familiar with the conversations.

Trump's reported attempts to pressure senior law enforcement officials through firings or other means has now become one of the main focuses of the investigation - including an order last summer to fire special counsel Robert Mueller that prompted White House counsel Don McGahn to threaten to quit before Trump backed down. Top White House aides have strongly indicated Trump would approve releasing the memo.

To justify the surveillance the USA security service reportedly sighted the Steele Dossier which includes the notorious allegations that Trump was filmed in a Russian Federation hotel room.
