Utah Republican Rep. Chris Stewart did not stand a chance on Friday when facing a spitting mad Wolf Blitzer on CNN. The interview followed President Trump's decision to release a controversial memo that alleges his former campaign adviser, Carter Page, was improperly surveilled by the government. The FBI and Justice Department have expressed "grave concerns" about the memo's accuracy.

Blitzer furiously challenged Stewart — a member of the House Intelligence Committee, which used an obscure rule in order to declassify the memo — on the partisanship in of the process. "You voted in favor of releasing the Republican report right away," Blitzer said. "You didn't vote in favor of releasing the Democratic report right away."
