A top secret memo on alleged surveillance abuses that was made available to the entire House on Thursday is piquing interest of some Republicans in the Senate.
Still, at least 180 of nearly Republicans in the House have viewed the memo in recent days, the Washington Examiner's Byron York reported Sunday morning, signalling widespread interest at a time when the shutdown has taken center stage.
A request to a White House spokesperson about Trump's opinion on the memo went unanswered, but the source suggested that if Trump were to block the memo's unveiling to the public, then the entire House could still secure its release through a vote.
The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, called the memo "a profoundly misleading set of talking points drafted by Republican staff attacking the FBI and its handling of the investigation."
All Democratic members of the intelligence committee voted against opening access to the memo to all House members.
