Washington DC [United States] Feb 2 (ANI): The spy agencies in Britain reportedly run the risk of having their intelligence methods revealed, if United States President Donald Trump releases the controversial, Republican-crafted memo, alleging that FBI abused its surveillance tools.
The document has set up a standoff with Trump against both the FBI and Department of Justice.
Figures in America's Justice Department have also reportedly been warning that the UK-US intelligence sharing relationship could be harmed.
The memo links the FBI investigation back to a former British spy, Christopher Steele, whose research was paid for by Democrats, and who wrote a dossier on Trump that contains a series of controversial, though unverified, claims.
The White House on Friday is likely to give Congress approval to release a Republican-drafted memo, despite of a warning from the top US law enforcement agency. The FBI has voiced "grave concerns" about the release of the memo.(ANI)
