President Trump cleared the way Thursday for the release of a classified memo on the Russia investigation prepared by Republican members of the House intelligence committee. The “Nunes memo,” so named for committee chairman Devin Nunes, reportedly suggests that the FBI and the Justice Department abused their authority when investigating the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia. House republicans are expected to release the memo Friday. We’ll discuss the memo and its implications.
