Devin Nunes just clarified why Trump White House won’t ‘release the memo’ from Democrats… yet


BPR: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has provided further clarification about why the Trump White House won’t release the memo drafted by top Democrat Adam Schiff (D-CA). At least not yet.

“Ranking Member Schiff pledged to seek the input of the Department of Justice and FBI regarding the memo’s public release, and it’s no surprise that these agencies recommended against publishing the memo without redactions,” Nunes said, as reported by The Hill.

Nunes recommended that Democrats on the committee make “the appropriate technical changes and redactions” to the memo corresponding to the advisement of the Justice Department, “so that no sources and methods are disclosed and their memo can be declassified as soon as possible.”

Nunes also echoed the assessment cited in the White House letter to Adam Schiff declining the immediate release of the Democrats’ response memo that “many sources and methods” stated in the document could jeopardize U.S. national security and law enforcement assets.

White House counsel Don McGahn laid out the reasons for declining the memo as it stood in a letter to Schiff.  read more

  1. I may be hopeful but a few comments by Democrat friends, etc tells me the average voter may be figuring out just how much they have been lied to over the years. Certainly not pro-Trump but have shown that Clinton-Obama may belong in the Political Hall of Stinkage.

  2. @Tom — The same thing happened to a lot of women voters who just couldn’t believe that Slick Willy — because he was president — could possibly be as bad as all that when it came to women….until his final lie about “not having sex with that woman!” I am hopeful, too.

  3. I love it how the Dems first defended the FBI/DoJ and cried how they were being attacked by Trump & Co., and NOW…
    …THEY have to attack FBI/DoJ for the redactions they are demanding from the Dems.

    Hypocrisy, thy name is BOO FRIGGIN’ HOO/PAMPERS.
