The 10-page memo contains multiple redactions, but appears geared at countering Republican claims that the FBI improperly spied on the Trump campaign.

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have released a memo about FBI surveillance and the Trump campaign, with approval from the Justice Department.

A fair portion of the 10-page memo is redacted, but it appears aimed at justifying the FBI's surveillance of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

It's meant to counter a rival memo penned by Republicans on the committee, which suggested the FBI was improperly surveilling Page.

President Trump previously blocked the release of the Democratic memo, claiming it needed more redactions to protect intelligence sources and methods.
