The rest of the letter warns congressional Republicans against releasing the memo, starting off with an oblique reference to the document's allegedly classified nature.
According to reports, the memo alleges the Federal Bureau of Investigation misled a FISA court judge in seeking a surveillance warrant for Trump campaign adviser Carter Page by not informing the judge that one of its sources - ex-British spy Christopher Steele, author of the so-called dossier - was being paid by Democrats.
The Justice Department also stepped in on Wednesday, sending a letter to Nunes urging him to reconsider releasing the memo.

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, who has helped lead the committee's Russian Federation investigation, put out a statement over the weekend saying the panel is "seeking input from colleagues who have read the memo regarding its content and next steps, including potentially releasing the memo publicly".
"House Republicans are pressing for the memo's public release and are joining a "#ReleaseTheMemo" campaign on social media that Democrats say is being promoted by the Russian government to discredit the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.
The rebuke came as Democrats announced that they had drafted their own classified memo based on the same underlying materials to rebut Nunes.
People familiar with the memo told the Times that Nunes neglected to point out the FISA application "drew on other intelligence that the Republican memo misleadingly omits-but revealing that other information to rebut the memo would risk blowing other sources and methods of intelligence-gathering about Russian Federation". Recent news reports exposed the fact that two FBI agents, involved in the Trump-Russia investigation, sent tens of thousands of text messages deriding Trump during the 2016 campaign.
The House Intelligence Committee may vote on releasing the memo, which some House Republicans have claimed contains "disturbing" information on how the law was used to target the Trump campaign. Democrats say Republicans are trying to distract from the Russian Federation probe.

"We're more interested in the source documents than we are in an internal staff memo", he said, adding the committee is "trying to figure out what source documents that they actually drew from".
A House intelligence committee vote on whether to release the document publicly, Boyd said, would "require ... members to vote on a staff-drafted memorandum that purports to be based on classified source materials that neither you nor a lot of them have seen". Republican Congressman Mark Meadows of North Carolina stated that he wished that he hadn't read the FISA memo as it was shocking and very troubling that such a thing would have happened in the United States, a country that he calls home and loves so much.
Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have let the push in Congress to find out that information.
