>> With President Donald Trump's first State of the Union speech out of the way, the focus is back on whether the President will release a contentious classified memo written by Republicans alleging the FBI abused its surveillance tools. A conversation caught on camera Tuesday night as Trump departed the House Chamber, may very well reveal what Trump's next move may be.
00:00:25
>> Let's release the memo.>> Yeah, don't worry, 100%.>> And on Wednesday, the President's Chief of Staff also said in an interview on FoxNews Radio that the memo will "be released here pretty quick, I think, and then the whole world can see it." Those messages are at odds with the statement issued by White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders as recently as Tuesday when she said there are quote, no current plans to release the memo.

Adding, quote, the President has not seen or been briefed on the memo or reviewed its contents. The House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines Monday to publicly release the classified document commissioned by Representative Devin Nunes, which claims to show anti-Trump bias by the FBI and the Justice Department in seeking a warrant to conduct an intelligence operation.
00:01:17
>> There may have been malfeasance by people at the FBI.>> While House Speaker Paul Ryan defended the Republicans vote to release the memo, Democrats have criticized the document as highly misleading based on a selective use of classified materials and say it was intended to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his Russia investigation.
00:01:38
Trump now has until the weekend to decide whether to allow the public release of the memo.
