Members of the House Intelligence Committee told the media that they had voted unanimously on whether to release the Democrat memo written to counter the narrative of the controversial FISA memo.

Here’s how they voted:

Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) said Monday that the committee voted unanimously to release the document.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) also addressed the media, and said that the Department of Justice and the FBI had already looked at the Democrat memo for several days, but he was concerned that the White House might redact portions of the memo in order to lessen its impact.

“The DOJ and FBI have had our memo for days, unlike the process the majority used. We want their feedback,” he explained. “It is our understanding and expectation that our memo will be going to the White House tonight. So as of tonight, that five-day clock is ticking.”

Schiff concluded that the allegations against President Donald Trump and his administration were serious and the investigation needed to continue.

“There are serious allegations that need investigation. It’s not enough just to bring people in for them to deny the facts,” he said. “That’s not how an investigation is conducted.”

President Trump now has five days to consider whether to approve or deny the release of the memo.
