He said he expects the memo to be released because the House Intelligence Committee is dominated by Republicans, and President Trump has signaled that he will authorize its release.

It is ultimately up to Congress to release the memo.

Under an obscure committee rule to make the classified memo public, which has never been invoked in the panel's 40-plus-year history, the President would have five days following a vote to decide whether to allow the public release to move forward or object to it.

"I'm here to tell all of America tonight that I'm shocked to read exactly what has taken place", House Freedom Caucus Chairman (R-N.C.) said in a speech on the House floor.

In an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News, Gowdy said the memo was the distillation of "thousands of pages of documents provided to us by the [DOJ and FBI]".

"The constitutional process as laid out involves the house of representatives, the House Intelligence Committee and the White House and the President of the United States".
