President Trump "erupted in anger" during his Air Force One flight to Davos at the news "Associate Attorney General Stephen Boyd warned [the House Intelligence Committee in a letter] that it would be 'extraordinarily reckless' to release a classified memo" written by House Republicans, Bloomberg reports. The memo alleges that the FBI used the Trump/Russia dossier to obtain FISA wiretaps against American citizens.

The backdrop, via Bloomberg: For Trump, the move was "another example of the Justice Department undermining him and stymieing Republican efforts to expose what the president sees as the politically motivated agenda behind Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe."
