Republicans released a memo, largely drafted by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), detailing damning accusations against Democrats, Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the wiretapping of the Trump campaign and the Mueller investigation concerning the Trump dossier and the witch about Russia. The only defenses Democrats had was to try to claim the GOP memo was a lie and then to prepare their own memo, which is undoubtedly filled with lies.
The Democrat’s memo landed on the desk of President Donald Trump for his approval to be released, but against the advice of some of his attorneys, Trump refused to release the Dem’s memo and insisted that it be revised before he would release it.
(BBC) – US President Donald Trump has blocked the release of a Democratic rebuttal of a Republican memo alleging the FBI’s Russia inquiry is biased against him.
The White House said Mr Trump could not declassify the Democrats’ memo because of “sensitive passages” that created “concerns for national security”.
A congressional panel had voted unanimously to make it public.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi accused Mr Trump of trying to hide the truth about “the Trump-Russia scandal”.
Democrats say their memo corrects errors and omissions in the Republican memo, which Mr Trump approved.
He defied warnings from the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) when he allowed it to be released at the beginning of the month.
The document alleges the agency abused its power by investigating a Trump adviser as part of its inquiry into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election…
President Trump’s refusal to release the Dem’s memo is being viewed by many Democrats as his attempt to hide the truth, but others believe that Trump blocked the release in order to force the Democrats to be more truthful.
