Secret memo hints at a new Republican target: the deputy attorney general

Ex-FBI agent debunks 'misleading' GOP memo: Judge confirmed 'valuable intel' came from tapping Carter Page

Report: Rod Rosenstein approved surveillance of Trump associate Carter Page

But a trip Page took to Russian Federation in July 2016 while working on Trump's campaign caught the bureau's attention again, and US law enforcement officials began conducting surveillance on him in the fall of 2016, shortly after he left the campaign.

The House Intelligence Committee could vote as early as Monday on whether to declassify the memo and make it public. Trump would have five days to try to block their effort, potentially setting up a high-stakes standoff between the president and his Justice Department, which opposes its immediate release. The memo was reportedly shared with many Republican members of Congress, but has not been turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Department of Justice.

Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd has said the memo draws on classified information and it would be "extraordinarily reckless" to release it.

The memo in question was authored by Rep. Devin Nunes' (R-CA) staffers, and it reportedly contains classified information about the conduct of senior Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, that allegedly proves Republicans' claims of the Justice Department's bias against President Donald Trump. Democrats have been blasting the memo for weeks as a political effort to undermine the Russian probe.

It is expected to show that Federal Bureau of Investigation and DOJ officials did not explain to the secret court granting spy warrants that the dossier was politically fueled opposition research.

The new report shows that the government had a warrant against Page much more recently than previously known.

Page, who was a Trump campaign foreign policy adviser until September 2016, was never charged with wrongdoing.

Page has vehemently denied the dossier's allegations and has claimed he is the victim of a witch hunt.

And he denied reports that he had been mistreated by the Saudi authorities during his stay at the Ritz-Carlton. Early last week, the attorney general said merely that "most" detainees had agreed to settlements.

Page, a former Moscow-based investment banker who later founded an investment company in NY, had been on the FBI's radar for years.

According to The New York Times, the memo singles out Rosenstein for approving the application to continue surveillance of former Trump adviser Carter Page, who is suspected of cooperating with the Russians. When Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey in May, Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller to lead a special counsel.

Trump "has always been mistrustful" of Rosenstein, and is reportedly telling associates he is frustrated with the deputy attorney general, the Times reports.
