President Trump says Democratic intelligence memo will 'be released soon'

President Trump says Democratic intelligence memo will 'be released soon'

President Donald Trump explained on Twitter Saturday his decision not to declassify a memo written by Democrats in response to a shocking Republican memo.

"I'm not part of that decision", Rep. Mike Conaway of Texas, who took over the committee's Russian Federation probe after Nunes was accused of running interference for the White House, told the outlet.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi was less measured, saying the White House move is "part of a risky and desperate pattern of cover-up on the part of the president".

The House Republican leaders whose accusations of FBI surveillance abuses launched a partisan war of classified memos are pledging to continue their investigation, with one important difference: no more memos. "There is a Russian Federation investigation without a dossier", Rep. Trey Gowdy told CBS News' Face the Nation.

"We think this (Democratic memo) will help inform the public of the many distortions and inaccuracies in the (Republican) memo", Schiff told reporters after Monday's vote.

Schiff, who has traded bitter Twitter messages with the president after Trump called him one of "the biggest liars and leakers" in Washington, warned this week that Trump might call for "political edits" meant to erase embarrassing parts of the memo, not information related to national security.

"However, given the public interest in transparency in these unprecedented circumstances, the President has directed that Justice Department personnel be available to give technical assistance to the Committee, should the Committee wish to revise the February 5th Memorandum to mitigate the risks identified by the Department", McGahn wrote. "And now the Democrats are doing their memo, and we're in memo hell".

Back in Washington this week, lawmakers on the Intelligence panel voted unanimously to release the Democratic response, setting up another talking point for Republicans' claim that they simply were conducting oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, walks to a House Republican conference meeting on Tuesday. Unlike Committee Republicans, however, we will ask the relevant agencies to propose any necessary redactions to protect any sources and methods not already disclosed by Chairman Nunes' document.

"The executive branch stands ready to review any subsequent draft of the February 5 memorandum for declassification at the earliest opportunity", McGahn wrote to the committee.

Feinstein's statement Friday also said any changes that need to be made for the Schiff memo to be declassified should be made swiftly and the memo "should be released".

Spokesmen for the Justice Department did not respond Friday night to questions about the concerns that Rosenstein and Wray had reportedly expressed.

"It was not clear what the president meant by "(and more)".

Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intel committee, took issue with the administration's action.

Sen. Chuck Schumer of NY, the top Senate Democrat, said bluntly, "Millions of Americans are asking one simple question: What is he hiding?"

Grassley refused to condemn the House memos Thursday, saying "the people of this country have a right to know the public's business".

"This memo totally vindicates "Trump" in probe". They also noted that there was other evidence presented to the court besides Steele's information, though they have not provided details.

At the same time, the dispute over the fate of the Democrats' memo opens the door for a potential break between House Republicans and the White House - not such a bad thing these days. Or is your argument that even though the Republican memo hurt national security, the Democrats' response would not? Democrats say the court was informed that a former British spy, Christopher Steele, who assembled the dossier, was politically motivated. But Nunes said the disclosure still fell short.
