Trump is once again at odds with the Department of Justice: he wants the classified memo, written by Republican members of the House Intelligence committee, to be released to the public, Washington Post reports.

Why it matters: Trump has consistently tried to discredit Bob Mueller's Russia probe, even going so far as to considering firing both Mueller and Rod Rosenstein. Releasing this classified memo, which the DOJ said would be “extraordinarily reckless," would be another significant way Trump is interfering in the investigation.
