Capitol Report: Schiff memo released challenging Republican allegations of government overreach related to Mueller probe

The White House on Saturday agreed to let the House Intelligence Committee release a redacted version of a Democratic memo that rebuts Republican efforts to rein in the Mueller investigation into Russian election meddling.

This version, known as the Schiff memo for Rep. Adam Schiff of California, serves as a Democratic response to the Nunes memo, crafted under the direction of Rep. Devin Nunes, the California Republican. The latter alleged that the FBI and Department of Justice abused its power while surveilling Carter Page, a former adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, among other concerns. But Schiff contends his memo proves warrants were properly obtained.
