House Intel Committee Votes To Release Spy Memo

On his flight back to the U.S. from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, President Donald Trump erupted in anger at his staff after learning that Associate Attorney General Stephen Boyd had warned that it would be "extraordinarily reckless" to release a classified House Intelligence Committee memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes, according to Bloomberg.

The memo was written by Republican staff members led by Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes of California and member Trey Gowdy of SC.

Nunes, who drafted the memo along with the help of his staff, denied Burr's staff request for a copy of the document, CNN reported Wednesday, citing three sources familiar with the matter. Sessions was also at the White House Monday for an immigration meeting and for a discussion Tuesday of the department's goals for the coming months. "You didn't want us to find it in the first place". Democrats on the committees are contending they were not invited to the briefing.

The whole reason special counsel Robert Mueller is conducting an investigations is to determine if Russians attempted to influence the 2016 election, so it's the public right to know if the information they're receiving is "honest and appropriate" as they head to the polls to elect officials.

SpaceX sets launch date for Falcon Heavy test
Musk has repeatedly warned there's a good chance the new rocket could blow up, thus his own personal property will be aboard. SpaceX said on Twitter . "Aiming for the first flight of Falcon Heavy on Feb 6 from Apollo launchpad 39A at Cape Kennedy".

That's according to Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the ranking Democrat on the committee.

The House Intelligence Committee will meet on Monday to discuss the four-page memo - which some House Republicans have claimed contains "disturbing" information on how the FISA surveillance program was used to target the Trump campaign - and may vote to make it public.

"Frankly, what disturbs me is some of the discussion of what may or may not be in that memo", he said.

The renewal shows that the Justice Department under President Trump saw reason to believe that the associate, Carter Page, was acting as a Russian agent. The contents of that memo have not been made public, and the Republican-controlled committee blocked Democrats' attempt to release it Monday.

Indian economy boosted by reforms and export growth
India's recent slowdown has been blamed on several factors, including declining exports and falling private investment. Economic Survey 2018 states that there has been a large increase in registered indirect and direct taxpayers.

President Donald Trump erupted aboard Air Force One last week when he learned of the Justice Department's efforts to quash the release of a classified memo alleging abuses by Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department officials, a source familiar with the matter confirmed to CNN.

A senior administration official told The Post that Trump "is inclined to have that released just because it will shed light". This rule will allow the committee "to bypass the executive branch's declassification process" and if they do, then President Donald Trump has five days to decide to release it to the public or deny it.

Here's the thing, though: He won't let the staff of his counterparts in the Senate Intelligence Committee - which, like the House Intelligence Committee, is chaired by a Republican - see the memo.
