According to the Washington Examiner, the memo says:
The anti-Trump dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee formed an essential part of the initial and all three renewal surveillance applications against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page;
It will also say FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA court without the dossier;
The political origins of the dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials, but not included in applications to obtain the warrant;
Justice Department official Bruce Ohr met with dossier author Christopher Steele in the summer of 2016 and told the Justice Department that Steele had told Ohr that Steele was “desperate” that Trump not get elected president.
This is a developing story.
