3. Trump's refusal to declassify will be a net positive in the long run.

Now everybody wants to know what's in it! We can play up the whole "what are they afraid of?" angle.

'cause one way or the other, it's coming out anyway and if not: it will become the fodder for CT's debasing Trump.

5. Agree

the best thing that came out of the Nunes memo for the right was the hype that was created around #releasethememo. If it doesnt look like he's hiding something, its just a bad look politically and further enrages a dem opposition that will be strong in the fall. I cant imagine the memo is that damning and by doing this he's creating an aura of curiosity that will cause people to wonder whats in it. Long run you're right, this is good for us.
