A memo written by Democrats on the House intelligence committee as part of its investigation of Russian election interference was under review at the White House, where President Donald Trump will decide whether to allow the public to read it.
Trump last week declassified a document written by the committee’s Republican majority that criticized methods the FBI used to obtain a surveillance warrant on a onetime Trump campaign associate. Trump said the GOP memo showed the FBI and Justice Department conspired against him in the Russia probe.
President Trump declared that the GOP memo “totally vindicates” him.
The Democrat version is obviously fake news and should merit one of President’s vaunted awards.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the House panel voted unanimously to release the Democratic memo, sending it to the White House for a legal and national security review.
It should be entertaining to watch Adam Schiff try to defend the indefensible. It’s amazing that Democrats have let Schiff continue to be the point person on this issue. That’s great news for the Republicans.
