Kelly told Wray and Rosenstein that Trump was still inclined to publicly release the document, but would first have the National Security Council and the White House counsel review it, an examination could take several days.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, also expressed outrage after Republicans on his committee voted to release Nunes' memo, but not an opposing memo written by Democrats.
The document was commissioned by Representative Devin Nunes, the House committee's Republican chairman who had recused himself from the panel's Russian Federation probe.
So far, the official said, the Justice Department is the only agency opposing its release.

Manchin, who described himself as a "very independent" member of his caucus, said he was also happy to hear Mr. Trump cover issues like nation's dwindling infrastructure, the opioid crisis and clean coal during his speech to the joint session of Congress.
The White House says it's unlikely that a classified memo on the Russian Federation investigation written by the House intelligence committee will be released Tuesday. Releasing the memo could result in "maximum damage with the minimum possible public education". Are you glad the committee voted?

Assistant Attorney-General Stephen Boyd wrote to Congress last week, warning lawmakers that releasing the memo without giving the Justice Department and the FBI an opportunity to review it "would be extraordinarily reckless", as doing so could harm national security and ongoing investigations. "I'll let you read the memo and you will see for yourself that it's not necessary", Conaway said. As sources told Axios, Trump "believes [the memo's contents] will solidify in the public's mind that there's a Deep State out to get him", and sees its release as "vindication, despite Justice Department resistance". Not surprisingly, the committee hasn't agreed to release a dueling Democratic memo.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan called for a "cleansing" at the FBI Tuesday morning, saying the House Intelligence Committee should release a bombshell report that outlines systemic abuse by the Department of Justice in surveilling American citizens.

President Trump has five days to decide whether to block the release of a classified memo that's critical of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice.
"Given a lot of stuff that's already public about Page and about past known attempts to recruit him, it certainly seems like they could well have plenty to go on without the dossier", Sanchez said. "Oh, don't worry. 100%", Trump said, adding "Can you imagine that?" The Republican-led committee blocked the release of a competing memo compiled by its Democratic members.
Ahead of President Donald Trump's first State of the Union address on Tuesday night, the political bitterness between the Republicans and the Democrats has deepened, this time over the FBI's alleged surveillance abuses.
