WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House Intelligence Committee plans on Monday to consider the Democratic rebuttal to a Republican memo alleging bias at the FBI and Justice Department against President Donald Trump, two sources told Reuters on Sunday.

The panel, which on Friday released the Republican document, will consider whether to declassify the Democratic memo, which Democrats say will highlight flaws and other shortcomings in the Republican account.

The meeting will take place at 5 p.m. EST (2200 GMT) on Monday, one of the sources said.
