WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republicans on the House intelligence committee have voted to release a classified memo that purports to show improper use of surveillance by the FBI and Justice Department in the Russia investigation.

The memo has become a political flashpoint. President Donald Trump and many Republicans have been pushing for its release and suggesting that some in the Justice Department and FBI have conspired against the president.

How or when the memo will be released remains unclear.

The memo was written by Republicans on the committee, led by chairman Devin Nunes of California, a close Trump ally. Democrats have called it a selectively edited group of GOP talking points that attempt to distract from the committee's own investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
