The FISA Memo Fight may become one of the more notable events that ever takes place on Capitol Hill. The House FISA Memo is now the flag to be taken by many competitors. Right off the top, the American public rightly wants to know what is in it. The House did not generate this memo just to hide it under a basket. The Trump administration sees a win with its release.
