Rep. Adam Schiff has been the ever-present thorn in the side of Rep. Devin Nunes and House Intelligence Committee Republicans.
Having argued everything from treason to blaming them for the Kennedy assassination, Schiff has been the ‘voice of one crying in the wilderness’ in defense of the DOJ and FBI’s ‘witch hunt’ for President Trump.
And he went so far as to craft a sort of anti-memo to counter the Nunes memo released last week, which demonstrated the FBI’s apparent collusion in using a DNC hit piece as evidence for a FISA warrant.
So late yesterday, the committee voted to allow Schiff to release his memo.
The question is whether it will be much ado about nothing or will it offer something substantive that may bolster the FBI’s case?
We shall see soon enough. Stay tuned.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
Three days after the release of the GOP staff memo alleging FISA abuses in the monitoring of Trump campaign adivsor Carter Page, the House Intelligence Committee memo unanimously voted to release a memo from committee Democrats rebutting the GOP document.
The memo now goes to the White House for a five-day review, a national security survey like that for the memo written by staff of Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.).
It’s not clear if President Trump, who lauded Nunes on Twitter today as “a man of tremendous courage and grit” who “may someday be recognized as a Great American Hero,” will OK the release of the Democratic memo.
“If that memo is voted out and it comes to the White House we will consider it on the same terms we considered the Nunes memo — which is to allow for a legal review, national security review led by the White House Counsel’s Office, and then within five days the president will make a decision about declassifying it,” White House spokesman Raj Shah told reporters.
