"If they really wanted to get it out they'd be down there all day yesterday redacting it and getting it back over to the White House so the public can know what's in it", Nunes said.
The Republicanmemo portrayed the Russian Federation investigation as a product of political bias at the FBI and Justice Department against Mr Trump.
The GOP memo attempts to make the case that surveillance warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) were authorized against former Trump campaign official Carter Page because of an unverified and politicized dossier about Donald Trump's alleged connections to Russian Federation, authored by former British spy Christopher Steele.
In a statement, Mr Nunes said: "It's no surprise that these agencies recommended against publishing the memo without redactions".
On Friday evening, the White House sent a letter to the committee saying the president was "unable" to declassify the Democrats' memo because it first must be revised to address Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice officials' objections about its "classified" and "sensitive" information. But, late last night, President Trumpannounced that he would not release the Democratic memo until changes were made, citing national security issues with the document. The Democrats' memo is a rebuttal to the GOP memo about surveillance of a former Trump campaign official is expected to be released soon.
According to White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah, the president consulted the Director of National Intelligence and the Justice Department to "assess the declassification request and provide him recommendations".

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein said: "One week after he released the misleading and incomplete Nunes memo, President Trump tonight blocked the release of the Schiff memo that sought to fill in the holes. All we can do is make criminal referrals", the California Republican said. It is said to indicate that the court was made aware of the political motivations behind the information provided by Steele, but that specific Democratic organizations were not identified. Rosenstein is now overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether there was any connection between Russians and Trump associates during the 2016 presidential campaign. "President Trump clearly doesn't want Americans to have access to the truth", Crowley said.
His decision - and defense - comes just a week after he approved the release of a Republican memo on the same subject matter that the Democratic memo contradicts.
Nunes agreed, saying the apparent intentional inclusion of sensitive methods by Schiff's team is "all about politics" and making the Trump administration look like it is hiding something.
Democrats say their 10-page memo corrects key mischaracterizations and crucial omissions in the Republican case.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) pulled no punches on Trump as he characterized the president's decision as the hypocritical act of a man who places his own personal interests above national security.
