President Trump is losing no time in shaking up Washington.
The White House will quickly release the House’s classified FBI memo that allegedly shows bias against President Trump during the Bureau’s investigation of Russian election interference, Chief of Staff John Kelly said.
Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines on Monday to make the memo public.
The same night, the document was taken to the White House and the president was given five days to approve the release. If he does not take action during that time, the memo will be released automatically.
“It will be released here pretty quick, I think, and then the whole world can see it,” Kelly said during a Fox News Radio interview.
“This president has said from the beginning, ‘I want everything out. I want this thing. I want the American people to know the truth.”
Following the delivery of his State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Trump was overheard on hot mic telling a congressman he will “100 percent” release the memo.

“Let’s release the memo,” Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) said, prompting the president to reply “Oh yeah. Don’t worry, 100 percent.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said on CNN Wednesday that no final decision had been made.

“We are still going to complete the legal and national security review that has to take place before putting something out publicly,” Sanders told the network’s Chris Cuomo.
The memo reportedly details abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by the FBI and Department of Justice in order to spy on the Trump campaign, including using the salacious and largely unverified Steele dossier as evidence for securing a FISA warrant.
