Nunes and his staff compiled the memo from classified material provided by the DOJ and FBI. Numerous Republicans as well as the White House have been advocating its release, which may happen this week.

More fake news.
If this was a public statement, where is it?
Even the NYT plays this little trick with what they report...
F.B.I. Condemns Push to Release Secret Republican Memo
Christopher A. Wray, the F.B.I. director, clashed publicly with the president for the first time on Wednesday, condemning a push by House Republicans to release a secret memo that purports to show how the bureau and the Justice Department abused their authorities to obtain a warrant to spy on a former Trump campaign adviser.
And then continues to read:
Though Mr. Wray’s name was not attached to the statement...

Are we going to go through this same thing for every emailed statement from now on?
It was a statement from the FBI, emailed to media outlets. The reporter whose tweet that was happens to be a reporter for a right-leaning outlet.

Its not like the memo is an adjudicated decision or something. Its an allegation based on evidence. From there, it can be investigated, im sure.
Given what we know, why on Earth would anyone oppose investigating the FBI and DOJ?
Only hardline party Democrat's don't want it investigate because they don't want the truth out
Trump met with Lavrov and Kislyak in the Oval Office on May 10, the day after he fired James Comey as FBI director. Trump told the Russians that he had "faced great pressure" as a result of the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US election — and whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow — that Comey was leading, calling him "crazy" and "a real nut job."
Regardless, it’s clear that top officials used unverified information in a court document to fuel a counter-intelligence investigation during an American political campaign.
“Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies. The FBI is intimately familiar with ‘material omissions’ with respect to their presentations to both Congress and the courts, and they are welcome to make public, to the greatest extent possible, all the information they have on these abuses. Regardless, it’s clear that top officials used unverified information in a court document to fuel a counter-intelligence investigation during an American political campaign. Once the truth gets out, we can begin taking steps to ensure our intelligence agencies and courts are never misused like this again.”
