A memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes concerning possible abuses in the surveillance system may be released “pretty quick,” according to one top White House staffer, but another report suggests it may have inaccuracies.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said Wednesday that he believes President Trump will release the memo, which the House Intelligence Committee voted Monday night in favor of doing.

“It will be released here pretty quick, I think, and the whole world can see it,” Mr. Kelly said on Fox News Radio.

But Bloomberg reported that FBI Director Christopher Wray told White House officials the memo “paints a false narrative.”

The document, which has been made available to the whole House, reportedly shows abuses in the intelligence community in order to obtain FISA warrants on Trump campaign aides. Democrats on the committee said the Republicans are misleading the situation and risking national security by publicly releasing the memo.

They drafted their own response to the document, which House Speaker Paul Ryan said is still being reviewed for classified information, but will also likely be released.
