House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, and Democratic lawmakers slammed President Trump after he approved the release of a memo questioning surveillance methods by the FBI during the early stages of the Russia investigation, arguing that he gave up “his constitutional responsibility” by releasing it.

Pelosi also reiterated her call for Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to remove Nunes as chairman of the committee and repeated the FBI’s warning against releasing the memo, saying it would be an “extraordinarily reckless” action. Read moe at The Washington Examiner.
