Donald Trump Caught On Hot Mic Promising He'll '100% Release The Memo'
President promises Jeff Duncan he'll release FISA memo
Donald Trump has been caught on a hot mic promising a congressman that he will "100%" release the FISA memo that will expose the extreme deep state spying.
As Trump left the House chamber following his State of the Union address, he was filmed shaking hands with various members of Congress before Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC) said, "let's release the memo", to which the president replied: "Don't worry, 100%."
FBI Director Christopher Wray was reportedly "shocked to his core" after reading the four-page FISA memo Sunday night, just hours before ordering FBI Director Andrew McCabe to step down according to o journalist Sara Carter.
IBtimes reports: On Monday night (29 January) Republican lawmakers on the intelligence panel voted in favor of the memo to be released.
The contents of the four-page memo, headed up by the panel's chairman, Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is thought to contain details about abuses by the Justice Department and the FBI.
The document is thought to also specifically name the fired FBI director James Comey, the former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe and the current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
But as recently as Tuesday (30 January) the White House said that there were "no current plans" to release the report.
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "Contrary to a published report, there are no current plans to release the House Intelligence Committee's memo. The president has not seen or been briefed on the memo or reviewed its contents."
But Trump has signalled that he may order the memo's release, though the Justice Department and FBI can lobby the president against doing so.
Following the committee vote, Trump has five days to release the memo, that countdown began on Monday evening and would end on Saturday evening.
The House can overrule Trump should he decide not to release the memo himself.
