Trump tells Democrats to re-do 'political and long' memo

Former Hussein Obama State Department Official Got Intel Report on Trump Campaign

The House Intelligence Committee voted unanimously on Monday to publish the 10-page Democratic memorandum, and the rules of the commission gave Trump five days to decide whether to block or allow its release. "We believe that Congressman Schiff potentially put in there methods and sources that he knew would need to be redacted", he said.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway implored Democrats to be patient with the process.

The White House legislative director, Marc Short, countered that Democrats padded their memo with sensitive information, knowing Trump would stop its release, in an effort to make him look obstructionist. "Their memo is sitting at the House Intelligence Committee down at the bottom of the Capitol waiting to be redacted". Trump had no problem releasing that document, which many consider highly partisan. "We're going to be releasing a letter soon". There is no precedent for releasing such documents publicly.

President Donald Trump accused House Intelligence Committee Democrats Saturday with crafting their rebuttal memo about FBI and Justice Department officials' actions early in the Russian Federation election meddling investigation in a way that would back his White House into a corner. The Democratic memo was drawn from the same underlying documents as the Republican one.

Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer said it was a matter of "fundamental fairness" the memo be declassified, urging the president to demonstrate he was not trying to undermine the Russian Federation investigation.

The four-page GOP memo, released last week, argues that Federal Bureau of Investigation surveillance of former Trump campaign official Carter Page was authorized in part because of claims in the unverified Trump dossier authored by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.

They argued that the reliance on Steele's material amounted to an improper politicization of the government's surveillance powers.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has read the classified information both memos are based on. "Told them to re-do and send back in proper form!" We know that was his motive because he told us so, bragging that with the memo's release, he had somehow been vindicated.

"Lawyers have said that it contains sources and methods that could be very compromising". Earlier this week, White House officials said the Democratic memo would go through the same national security and legal review as the Republican document.

The White House has denied it is considering terminating Rosenstein. It claims that without the Steele dossier, no surveillance warrants would have been sought. But White House chief of staff John Kelly hinted at possible redactions, saying the Democratic version is "not as clean" as the GOP's.

President Trump himself has previously claimed the Nunes memo "totally vindicates" him in the ongoing probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 USA election.

The document in question was authored by Democrats on the intelligence panel.

The letter notes that due to the "public interest in transparency in these unprecedented circumstances", justice department officials would be made available to offer "technical assistance" to edit the memo for potential release. "Then we will brief the president on it, he'll have a decision to make", Kelly said. Lindsey Graham of SC.

SHAPIRO: The Nunes memo of course is from the Republican majority. The FBI vouched for Steele's credibility multiple times.
