    Trump won't declassify Democratic memo

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Latest on investigations into connection between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia (all times local):

    7:45 p.m.

    Citing national security concerns, the White House is formally notifying the House intelligence committee that President Donald Trump is "unable" to declassify a memo drafted by Democrats that counters GOP allegations about abuse of government surveillance powers.

    White House counsel Don McGahn says in a letter to the committee that the memo contains "numerous properly classified and especially sensitive passages." He is asking the Democrats to revise the memo with the help of the Justice Department.
    McGahn says Trump is still "inclined" to release the memo in the interest of transparency if revisions are made.

    Democrats on the House panel drafted their memo to counter claims in a document released last week by Republicans, led by committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes of California.

    The White House says President Donald Trump is "weighing his options" as he decides whether to release a classified memo, drafted by Democrats, that counters GOP allegations that the FBI abused U.S. government surveillance powers in its Russia probe.

    White House spokesman Raj Shah says the president "will respond soon" with his decision to the House intelligence committee.

    Democrats on the panel drafted the memo to counter claims in a document released last week by Republicans, led by committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes of California.

    The GOP memo accused the FBI and Justice Department of abusing its surveillance powers in obtaining a secret warrant to monitor former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

    Page was monitored for nearly a year.

    The Democrats knowingly put specific classified info into the memo. The president had no choice.

    This is just one more thing that points to Trump's guilt. In spite of this I expect the Trump ass-kissing to be strong in this thread.

    Yes he does. He could choose to either declassify the memo like he did with the Nunes memo or choose to redact the classified parts.

    He does not what the real truth to come out. Even though the Nunes memo ended up being a big nothing.

    The real truth... Kept from you by democrats for ages. They want to release the truth but that monster trump won't let them lie some more using classified material they never should have obtained in the first place.

    You will notice that neither the DOJ nor the FBI have said they object to anything in the Schiff memo. It's just Trump that objects. I wonder why? Maybe because it exposes the truth and it doesn't fit Trump's theme that the FBI are corrupt or out to get him or whatever. This is a delay tactic by Trump trying not to have the Schiff memo out at all .If he does allow it out it will be edited to keep out anything worth reading.
