House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Wednesday accused Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) of “secretly [altering]” the anti-FBI memo before sending it to the White House.

“The White House is therefore reviewing a document the committee has not approved for release,” Schiff explained, demanding it be withdrawn and resubmitted for a vote before the House Intelligence Committee.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) issued a statement about Schiff’s claim, demanding Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) “end this charade once and for all.”
