Trump Blocks Release of Democrat Counter-Memo

After the release of the Republican memo by Rep. Devin Nunes, Democrats led by Rep. Adam Schiff insisted on releasing a counter-memo which contradicts the claims by Republicans.

Nunes and his fellow Republicans voted in favor of allowing the release of Schiff’s memo, but it required approval by the White House.

Late this week, President Trump gave Schiff the Heisman after DOJ officials cited sensitive intelligence details in the 10-page document.

So now Schiff is livid that he won’t get to call Nunes ‘liar-liar-pants-on-fire’.

But the FBI’s cover-up is already public record.

So, allow us to quote Schiff’s nominee for president: “At this point, what difference does it make?”

Here’s more from PJ Media…

A week after allowing the release of a memo from House Intelligence Committee GOP staff alleging FISA abuse in the surveillance of campaign advisor Carter Page, President Trump decided to block the declassification of a rebuttal memo from committee Democrats.

The¬†memo¬†prepared by aides for Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) states that October 2016 FISA application to the court, as well as “any of the renewals,” the memo continues, didn’t “disclose or reference the role of the DNC” or “any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were then known to senior DOJ and FBI officials.”

Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who has viewed the classified documents behind the memo along with Intelligence Committee member Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), countered afterward that “the FBI did include information about a potential political bias” and “did set out information about who had provided the support for Christopher Steele.”

But the Democrats saved their main fire for Nunes’ nearly four-page memo with their 10-page rebuttal memo.

The House Intelligence Committee committee unanimously voted Monday to release the Democrats’ rebuttal, sending that memo to the White House for a five-day review.
