Copies of former FBI Director James Comey's memos have been delivered to Congress, reports the Associated Press who has obtained and is reviewing 15 pages of the memo.

Why it matters: The memos are "believed to be central" to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe. Per Politico, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd said Congress would get two versions of the memos: an "unclassified version with sensitive information redacted and a classified unredacted version that would be transmitted through a secure channel on Friday."
