House GOP to Continue Dossier Probe Without Memos

House Intelligence Committee Republicans are planning to build a physical wall to separate Democrat and Republican staffers, according to committee sources who spoke with CBS News.

Bipartisanship "is gone. It's gone from that committee", Rooney told CBS. Monday, the intel committee voted unanimously to release that memo after Democrats pressured Republicans on the issue of transparency.

Another Republican member who spoke with CBS suggested the idea may have been spurred on by House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA). Adam Schiff, who also represents a district in California, have been publicly exchanging jabs over the release of dueling memos about the F.B.I. and Justice Department decision to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. "And now the Democrats are doing their memo, and we're in memo hell".

"We do support our troops, but I think most troops would tell you they would rather be taken care of than march to the president's tune down Pennsylvania Avenue", Swalwell said.

"I said from the beginning that neither of these memos should have been written", said Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.), a moderate Republican who is retiring at the end of his term. "While we have more than our share of difficulties, the important oversight work of the committee continues with our staff working together irrespective of party".

The report about the wall comes amid the increasingly volatile environment over the released GOP surveillance memo and the still unreleased Democratic countermemo.

The GOP memo, released publicly earlier this month, alleges surveillance abuses in the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department, accusing them of anti-Trump bias. "This would be a very destructive decision".

The site says it is paid for by Nunes' campaign committee, and the congressman has shared some CARepublican posts on his Facebook page.

The toxic atmosphere within the committee has always been apparent.

"I don't like partisan memos", said Sen. But Graham and Grassley have refrained from drafting anything resembling a memo in the Senate, instead waiting for law enforcement officials to approve redacted versions of their referral before releasing them.

The White House is now reviewing the Democratic countermemo, which reportedly offers evidence disputing claims in the GOP memo and will decide by the end of the week whether to block its release.
