Schiff: We're not going to revise Democratic memo

Source: The Hill

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday night that members of his party wont revise their countermemo, despite requests from the White House to do so.

Were not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. And obviously wed like to keep those to a minimum, Schiff told reporters.

The White House has a different interest. I think their interest is in redacting anything that doesnt reflect well on the White House, Schiff added.

14. They will redact items of national security upon request of the intelligence agencies.

But they won't revise away things that Trump doesn't like.

22. But haven't the intelligence agencies already cleared it?

I STILL don't get why the WH is even consulted.

The IC has cleared it.

The committed - republicans AND Democrats - unanimously voted to release it.

They should tell the republican president to screw himself, and they should release it.

7. Didn't Chris Wray say

In the lead-up to Nunes memo, that he would publicly rebut it, point by point? Has this been mentioned again?

10. He did say that. Have not heard a follow up

but perhaps he will help Schiff release it with appropriate redactions.

8. Read the DEM rebuttal on the house floor..

Do we have a Gravel in the house...perhaps when the timing is right...

A United States Senator Mike Gravel Alaska..read to a subcommittee from classified documents (the Pentagon Papers), which he then placed in the public record. Early 70s..

9. Just keep pushing back Adam Schiff. Dems day will come for the release of

their memo. The longer drumpf stalls on releasing the Dems memo, the longer this memo story stays front and center!

13. Good...

They need to force the idiot to release it just like he did the GOP memo, everyone wants transparency until it implicates them, I say go for it.

15. why not release it already?? Shiff has the memo, you dont need approval

its pretty clear that rules no longer apply, dems are not gonna win following the ruels. A massive disinformation campaign sponsored by russia using wikileaks is gonna drop before midterms and it will be much much worse than 2016. Because it now has he support of WH. Can you image if the cards are reversed - no chance in hell reps would be waiting for an approval to release docs that american people have the right to know yesterday. Feinstein is the only one left with the guts??? IMO, Shiff should publicly release the memo and be done with it! The pathological weakness of dancing around this issue gets tired.

How about every day some Dem Senator gets in the news demanding release of the memo while repeating what Schiff just said about the White House's reasons?
