Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement from the White House Friday following President Trump's declassification of the Devin Nunes memo. Trump's approval paved the way for Congress to release the document to the public, despite the FBI expressing it had "grave concerns" with such a decision.

"The memorandum raises serious concerns about the integrity of decisions made at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and the FBI to use the Government’s most intrusive surveillance tools against American citizens."
