Democrats in the House told the Times they're anxious Republicans may use the memo to show the DOJ was slanted against members of the Trump campaign.
Secret memo hints GOP could be targeting...
Rosenstein, after he was confirmed as the deputy attorney general in late April 2017, approved renewing the surveillance warrant, according to the Times.
President Donald Trump has recently echoed fellow Republicans in calling for a controversial memo House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes wrote about the Justice Department to be released - and we might now know why he's so eager.

President Rodrigo Duterte said he told Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to ignore human rights activists, describing them as a "noisy bunch". And in his resignation letter, Richardson accused members of being a "cheerleading squad" for the government.
According to the memo, Rosenstein extended the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) order on Page, a former Moscow-based investment banker whom a Russian Federation spy had tried to recruit, according to a 2013 investigation. The White House said Monday it plans to review the document.
Page told The Daily Caller last week that he "very much" hopes that the push to release the FISA memo will be successful. Much of that criticism was quieted after he named Robert S. Mueller III as a special counsel in May to oversee the Russian Federation probe.
"Based on numerous news reports, top officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation have engaged in conduct that shows bias against President Trump and bias for Hillary Clinton", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told the Times in a statement.
It has also been reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department obtained a FISA warrant against Page in 2014.
Rafael Nadal's two most meaningful matches in 2018
In his 14th quarter-finals in Melbourne , the Swiss will play Tomas Berdych, who left no chance to Fabio Fognini (6:1, 6:4, 6:4). You know, it is not the moment to say what's going on or what not going on because we really don't know.
But in their efforts to discredit the inquiry, Republicans could potentially use Rosenstein's decision to approve the renewal to suggest that he failed to properly vet a highly sensitive application for a warrant to spy on Page, who served as a Trump foreign policy adviser until September 2016. "While President Trump has the utmost respect and support for the rank-and-file members of the F.B.I., the anti-Trump bias at the top levels that appear to have existed is troubling".
Trump needs to get Rosenstein out of the way before he can fire Mueller.
Reuters could not contact Carter Page for comment.
"This short summary of the abuses seems to be the next best thing", he said, referring to the House Intelligence Committee memo. Page popped up on investigators' radar a year before after several Russian spies made contact with him in what may have been a recruitment attempt.
