President Donald Trump signed off on an explosive FBI memo giving approval to Devin Nunes to release the document to the public on Friday. The memo was released Friday afternoon.
"A lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and MUCH WORSE than that," Trump tweeted on Friday.
Republicans say the FBI memo shows bias and deception within the nation's top law enforcement bureau and the U.S. Department of Justice.
Democrats were desperate to block the release of the memo. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called for the removal of Nunes as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
House Republicans on the Intelligence Committee voted to declassify the memo on Monday, giving Trump the leeway to either release the memo or object to its release.
But President Trump was eager to sign off on the memo so the American people could read it themselves.
