On Saturday, House Democrats released a heavily redacted version of the memo that was created to counter Republican claims that top FBI and DOJ officials abused the FISA program to spy on a member of the Trump campaign.

The Democratic memo alleges that the Republicans’ memo was designed to undermine the FBI and DOJ as well as the Special Counsel, and Congress' investigations. The counter-memo claims that the Republican memo risked "public exposure of sensitive sources and methods for no legitimate purpose."

The Democratic memo claims that there were no abuses made in obtaining the FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign official Carter Page. The memo also notes that the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation began prior to the FBI receiving the Democrat-funded anti-Trump dossier — which the Republican memo already stated.

President Donald Trump slammed the memo on Twitter, writing: "The Democrat memo response on government surveillance abuses is a total political and legal BUST. Just confirms all of the terrible things that were done. SO ILLEGAL!​"
