Democrats Set Trap With Memo That Counters Nunes Memo

I can never do it justice, so I’ll let Admiral Akbar do it for me:

The House Intelligence Committee just voted to release the Democrat-crafted FISA memo, which was written to discredit the memo written by Chairman Devin Nunes’s staff that outlined improper conduct by FBI officials when it came to spying on Trump campaign staff.

The memo now sits with the White House, where President Trump must decide whether or not to declassify it for the public. But, it seems, the Democrats may have a trick of their sleeves with this memo.

From Fox News:

The Democratic rebuttal to a highly publicized GOP memo alleging government surveillance abuse is filled with sensitive details, a source told Fox News – claiming this was done intentionally to pressure the White House to either block the memo’s release or significantly redact it.

The claim comes after the House Intelligence Committee voted Monday to approve the release of the Democratic document.

Why does this matter? Because if the White House is forced to redact parts of the memo, or refrain from releasing it due to it containing sensitive information, Democrats will accuse the White House of covering something up. If Trump does release it, he’ll be hammered for putting national security in jeopardy.

More from the Fox report:

The source who spoke to Fox News has read the Democrats’ rebuttal memo, and said it is filled with information on sources and methods taken from original documents.

While the source described this as a way to put the White House in a difficult spot, Schiff maintained publicly that he wants to make sure the White House “does not redact our memo for political purposes.” A Schiff aide referred Fox News back to those comments when asked about the claim that the memo intentionally contained sources and methods.

Something definitely stinks here. Democrats opposed the release of the Nunes despite saying they care about transparency. Now they’re trying to undermine its claims by deliberately pushing something that puts the White House in a really tough spot, from a national security point of view.

Democrats are playing games with the security of our nation to score political points. How shameful!
