@KevinWGlass I think it really depends on how tired you are. If you haven't slept in 30 hours a nap will definitely help. If you are just woozy because you only slept 6 hours last night, dubious
The relevant rule is Rule X, Clause 11(g) for you nerds  https://rules.house.gov/sites/republicans.rules.house.gov/files/115/PDF/House-Rules-115.pdf  If the committee approves release, it notifies POTUS. If after 5 days he hasn't objected, the cmte can release it. Otherwise the House votes on release over his objections  https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/955930778310934529 
@steven_metz I'm not sure the distinction in this case. Declassification is done through an executive branch process
As I understand it, if the House approves the release, the president has no say in the matter. So the point is moot  https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/955930778310934529
