    Exclamation Trump accuses Democrats of sending him Russia probe memo they knew he would reject

    Trump accuses Democrats of sending him Russia probe memo they knew he would reject
    By BENJAMIN SIEGEL, Alexander Mallin and MAIA DAVIS

    "Although Trump declassified the prior four-page memo by Republicans, which was then released publicly, the White House indicated Friday that he won't at this time declassify the 10-page document by Democrats due to national security concerns."
    "Schiff further commented on Twitter, "After ignoring urging of FBI & DOJ not to release misleading [Republican] memo because it omits material facts, @POTUS now expresses concerns over sharing precisely those facts with public and seeks to send it back to the same Majority that produced the flawed ... memo to begin with."
    "Democrats "take seriously the concerns of the DOJ and FBI, which is why we both urged the Majority against this course in the first place and why we provided our document" to the intelligence agencies for vetting, Schiff said in a statement on Twitter."





    ================================================== ==

    That's called playing an unfair game when Trump can declassify the Republican memo but not the one by Democrats which is rather hypocritical isn't it. There can be no doubt that the agencies charged with intelligence have thoroughly reviewed the Democratic memo and have found there to be no issue with regard to national concerns such as to delay Trump from declassifying it. Therefore, it can only boil down to partisan doings in order for Republicans to be able to have their cake and eat it too. So typical of them to take that route.

    BULLSHIT! It was run by the FBI last week. THEY MADE NO CHANGES as I understand it and sent it back to SCHIFF or the House. Now there are changes made by DOJ and TRUMP and I thinking TRUMP is blaming it on the FBI!

    Trump truly knows his base. They didn't look, they don't understand and THEY DON'T CARE. And many reside right here on this board.

    From the HILL yesterday...

    Schiff said Intelligence Committee Democrats had submitted the memo to the DOJ and FBI for vetting before the panel voted to release the document, and that minority members of the committee would review redactions recommended by the agencies.

    "We will be reviewing the recommended redactions from DOJ and FBI, which these agencies shared with the White House, and look forward to conferring with the agencies to determine how we can properly inform the American people about the misleading attack on law enforcement by the GOP and address any concerns over sources and methods," he said in a statement.

    Do you even read what you post?

    "We will be reviewing the recommended redactions from DOJ and FBI, which these agencies shared with the White House,"
    So which is it? They, the FBI and DOJ, reviewed it before it was sent to the president, and now all of a sudden they want major redactions? LMBO!

    Except for all of the Republicans on the intelligence committee, of course, who voted unanimously to release the Democratic memo without redaction.

    Perhaps the White House should've checked their narrative with them before trying this bullshit, what do you think?

    Everybody knew he would reject it if he was guilty. Not just the Democrats.
