Trump on Saturday tweeted that the Democrats knew their memo would have to be heavily redacted. The article doesn't live up to the headline.
The Democrats have prepared a document in response to the release of the GOP memo that shed a light on the FBI's and the Justice Department's bias against Donald Trump in the first stages of the investigation of the alleged Russian meddling into the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
"After promising to treat the Democratic response in precisely the same way, the White House now seeks to have the Democratic memo sent back to the committee and revised by the same Majority that produced the flawed Nunes document to begin with", Schiff said.
McGhan's letter, which is entirely reasonable, is here.
"Intelligence Committee Republicans encourage the minority to accept the DOJ's recommendations and make te appropriate technical changes and redactions so that no sources and methods are disclosed and their memo can be declassified as soone as possible", Nunes said. What is most notable about the AP's story is the pro-Democrat spin it applies to the facts.
In their memo, Republicans challenged how the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department used information from former British spy Christopher Steele in obtaining a secret warrant to monitor Carter Page, who advised the Trump campaign on foreign policy. Some Republicans likewise disagreed with the conclusions being drawn from that document. It is 10 pages, while the GOP memo is four pages.
Mueller has already indicted two officials including Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. But the AP is sticking to its story.
The AP's account is false. Those are not doubts about the memo's "accuracy".
Mr. Schiff disputed the notion that the memo was improperly drafted, but when asked Sunday whether it contained sensitive information, he declined to say.
The decision to block the Democratic memo is a political risk for Trump, who claimed that the Republican-written version vindicated him of unfair political influence in investigations at the Justice Department.
Democrats say the court was informed that a former British spy, Christopher Steele, who assembled the dossier, was politically motivated.
Once again, the AP's account is spun to help the Democrats. The intelligence services haven't confirmed whether the findings of the Clinton campaign-funded dossier were true.
In this case, by contrast, the White House wasn't almost so eager to commit to a memo's release and is now suggesting it is bowing to concerns from the very same federal law enforcement entities whose objections it disregarded last time.
"If Page was using one of his standard phones, it was probably picked up", Elizabeth Goitein, a former trial attorney at the Justice Department and co-director of the Brennan Center for Justice's Liberty and National Security Program, told Politico.
This, based on what has been reported, is simply wrong.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) implied in an interview with Fox News on February 7 that longtime Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal also provided information to Steele.
