On Friday afternoon, Donald Trump officially declassified the controversial Nunes memo. Moments after the release, the president decided to speak out.

Trump on Nunes memo

The biggest political story over the last year has been the ongoing Russian investigation into whether or not Donald Trump's campaign was in cahoots with Russia during their hacking of the Democratic National Committee.

The FBI and Department of Justice have been working hard to get to the bottom of the truth, despite constant denial from the president who claims there was "no collusion" between himself and the Kremlin. In recent weeks, Republicans have been pushing for the release of a 4-page memo put together by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes claiming anti-Trump bias against the FBI. Despite warnings from Democrats and the FBI, Trump declassified the memo and gave his thoughts in the moments after, as reported by the Washington Examiner on February 2.

While sitting at the White House on Friday, Donald Trump spoke out about the release of the Nunes memo.

"It's terrible. You wanna know the truth? I think it's a disgrace," Trump said, before adding, "What's going on in this country, I think it's a disgrace."

"The memo was sent to Congress and was declassified. Congress will do whatever they're gonna do. I think it's a disgrace what is happening in our country," Donald Trump went on to add.

"When you see that and a lot of what is going on. A lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and much worse than that," the president said, while concluding, "lets see what happens."

Dems backlash

In opposition to releasing the Nunes memo, Democrats, as well as the FBI and DOJ, have accused Nunes of cherry picking information as part of their own anti-FBI bias in an attempt to discredit the bureau in part of a larger defense of Donald Trump over the Russian investigation.

Inside look

According to the Washington Examiner, the Nunes memo reveals that former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought without information obtained from the now infamous Steele "pee tape" dossier. In addition, the memo claims that Steele had a political bias against Trump, which were allegedly well-known by the Justice Department and FBI, but not made public when filling out FISA applications. As of press time, it's unknown what other information has been released through Trump's declassification.
