Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told reporters Monday that the panel voted unanimously to release the Democratic rebuttal memo to their chairman’s controversial document alleging abuse at the Justice Department and FBI.

NBC News producer Alex Moe was first to flag Himes’ comments about the Democrat memo pushed by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), which you can read below.

The committee voted last Monday to take the unusual step to release Nunes’ memo that had been touted by the GOP in right-wing media for weeks as a major exposée on bias within the FBI and DOJ, spawning the #ReleaseTheMemo campaign.

Before today’s vote, President Donald Trump blasted “Little Adam Schiff” on Twitter as House intelligence Democrats readied their memo.

Later in the day, he attacked Democrats as a whole as “treasonous” for not clapping during his State of the Union address.
