(Worthy News) - The Republican-led House Intelligence Committee voted Monday to invoke an obscure congressional rule to force the release a classified memo written by Republicans that outlines what they say are abuses of federal surveillance authorities.
Ranking member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told reporters that the Republican majority voted Monday night to make the four-page GOP memo public, but voted against the idea of releasing a counter memo written by the Democratic minority.
