The two men met to review the document on Sunday, after Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) lobbied Nunes to share the memo with Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to Politico. Rosenstein has not viewed the document.

The reported meeting came after several Republican lawmakers called for the FBI to view the memo.

The House Intelligence Committee is expected to vote to make the memo public on Monday night.

The document allegedly claims that the Department of Justice abused a surveillance program to spy on a Trump campaign adviser.

Some Republicans have said the memo proves a bias against Trump at the Justice Department and in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s election interference, while some Democrats have disputed that account.
