Trump says to soon release letter on Democrats' Russia memo

Washington (dpa) - US President Donald Trump said Friday he will release a letter about a classified memo authored by Democrats to counter a Republican document that criticized the FBI in the Russian election meddling investigation.

Trump said at the White House that he will release the letter soon.

He received the memo on Monday after the House intelligence committee voted unanimously to release it. He was given five days to decide whether to declassify it.

Democrats argued that the Republican memo from the committee - declassified a week ago - was misleading and sought to undermine the investigation into meddling and alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

The Republican memo alleges mistakes by the FBI and the Justice Department in their investigation.

The committee is conducting one of three congressional investigations into Russia‘s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said this week that Trump met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to discuss differences between the two memos.

The two memos are "undergoing the exact same process," including a full legal and national security review, Sanders said.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said he instructed officials to complete an evaluation of the Democrats‘ memo by Thursday.

After that, Kelly said, "we‘ll brief the president on it and he will have a decision to make" on whether to declassify it entirely, or perhaps declassify it with some redactions.
