Other Republicans, however, defended the decision, saying the information needed to be released to the public in order to ensure full transparency.
Nunes has insisted that it is neither cherry-picked nor partisan, and House speaker Paul Ryan underlined that the memo is not part of a battle against law enforcement. Trump had five days to object to its release, but he declassified it on Friday.

He said the agency's special agents remain professional and focused on protecting the US from terrorists and criminals.
The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin - who presents herself as belonging to the right - described the memo as a "nothingburger", linking to a Friday-published op-ed of hers in which she advances the narrative of "Russian meddling in the 2016 election" as axiomatic.
