After a week of hyperpartisan madness that critics warn, the inescapable, once-secret spying memo wound up falling like a drop of rain into the Pacific Ocean.
"The committee has discovered serious violations of the public trust, and the American people have a right to know when officials in crucial institutions are abusing their authority for political purposes", Nunes said. One said the meeting would take place at 5 p.m. (2200 GMT) and that there would be a vote.
The president also has told allies that he believes the memo bolsters his claim that accusations of collusion between his campaign and Russian officials are false and part of a conspiracy to discredit his election.
Court papers show that Papadopoulos learned the Russians had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton in the form of "thousands of emails" prior to that information becoming public.
Gosar said he is "seeking criminal prosecution against these traitors to our nation".
But it is not Nunes alone who comes after the DOJ and Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who authorized the hiring of special counsel Robert Mueller, and comes after Mueller himself.
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI last year.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) issued a statement accusing Trump of playing into the hands of Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom the senator accused of being "engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy".
McCabe's full testimony remains classified, so it's impossible to independently judge the memo's accuracy.
The Trump administration concluded that the US should largely follow its predecessor's blueprint for modernising the nuclear arsenal, including new bomber aircraft, submarines and land-based missiles.
The memo says the FBI and the Justice Department didn't tell the FISA court enough about Steele's role in an opposition research effort.
Where did the memo come from?
Steele was commissioned by a Washington private intelligence company, Fusion GPS. Carter Page was a temporary Trump campaign official who had made some trips to Russia.
It's unclear how Page got connected with the Trump campaign.
"I think it's a disgrace what's happening in our country, " Trump told reporters Friday in the Oval Office.
Friday's memo complicates that picture.
There are still more questions that need answering that's for sure.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday - before Trump's comments - said Rosenstein represents "the kind of quality and leadership that we want in the department".
The FBI signers of the FISA applications/renewals were James Comey and Andy McCabe.
Another argument is that the FISA surveillance was of Carter Page, the eccentric low-level Trump-campaign foreign-policy aide who has obnoxiously pro-Kremlin views. The memo's release was opposed by Democrats, the FBI and Department of Justice, who have called it inaccurate and decried the decision to release it as "extraordinarily reckless".
Sohrab Ahmari, a senior writer at Commentary, a conservative magazine, said the "devastating" findings affirm what many critics of the FBI already believed.
Further confusing the matter is. It was initially released to members of the House on Jan. 18 and became the talk of the town in Washington since. The chief of the FBI's national security division did that as soon as NSA sounded the alarm over the not-so-incidental interception of Trump campaign officials' communications.
The GOP majority of the House intelligence committee released it. And the public dissection of the four-page, GOP-authored document began.
Devin Nunes' memo about supposed corruption and bias in the Justice Department is about as well-written as a ransom note..
The collusion case has always been broader than the dossier.
The US President said the inquiry had found nothing and "collusion was dead".

Trump approved the release of the formerly classified memo without redactions despite objections from the FBI. The dossier really has nothing to do with George Papadopoulos' meeting in Great Britain.
