Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., blasted Trump's decision, saying Friday that the president's "double standard when it comes to transparency is appalling".

Mueller is also investigating whether Trump has committed obstruction of justice in trying to impede the Russian Federation probe.

"Intelligence Committee Republicans encourage the minority to accept the [Justice Department's] recommendations and make the appropriate technical changes and redactions so that no sources and methods are disclosed and their memo can be declassified as soon as possible", Nunes said. "The meaning of the "(and more)" was not immediately clear.

"Told them to re-do and send back in proper form!" the president wrote.

President Trump on Saturday accused the Democrats of forcing his hand in blocking the release of a classified memo that rebuts Republican charges that law enforcement agencies abused their power in spying on a former Trump campaign aide. The president declassified the document last week, allowing its publication in full.

The Democrats slammed Trump for declining to give his consent to release the memo.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California said the move is "part of a unsafe and desperate pattern of cover-up on the part of the president".

Trump laments that 'mere allegation' of abuse can destroy lives
He did a very good job when he was in the White House and hopefully he will have a great career ahead of him", Trump said. The White House declined to comment Wednesday when asked about Kelly's knowledge of the allegations against Porter.

"Mr. President, what you call "political" are actually called facts, and your concern for sources and methods would be more convincing if you hadn't made a decision to release the GOP memo ("100%") before reading it and over the objections of the FBI", Schiff wrote.

The top Democrat on the committee is criticizing Trump for treating the two documents differently.

It also alleges that DOJ official did not disclose to the court that the dossier was funded in part by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and that the Page surveillance application contained information about Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos, which "triggered" the opening of the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign and allegations of ties to Russian Federation.

In a statement Friday, Feinstein, a Democrat from California, called the Republicans' memo "misleading" and said she had read the underlying intelligence documents on which both memos were based. The Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation had also warned against releasing the Republican memo, saying it could jeopardise USA intelligence collection methods.

On Saturday morning, Trump tweeted about the back-and-forth, implying Democrats purposefully filled their memo with details that would need redaction so they could then turn around and blame him when he declined to declassify and release it as originally drafted.

Republicans contend that senior law enforcement officials were - and still are - biased against Trump, something the president also says frequently. It is 10 pages, while the GOP memo is four pages. "We used to say the DACA children but they aren't really children anymore". The FBI expressed "grave concerns about material omissions of fact" in the Republic memo.
