Against Democratic opposition, the House Intelligence Committee decided to release the classified memo that allegedly exposes Deep State abuse.
Now that the House Intelligence Committee has voted, President Trump has five days from the date of the vote to object to it being made public. I cannot imagine why he would want to prevent the memo’s release. As much as I admire the Trump Administration, I think many conservatives are tired of watching embedded bureaucrats work to overthrow the election. It seems that releasing the memo would be a way to strike back at the Deep State.
Fox News reports, “House Intel votes to release controversial surveillance memo to the public.”
The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.
The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said.
President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.
Last week, a top Justice Department official urged House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes not to release the memo, saying it would be “extraordinarily reckless” and could harm national security and ongoing investigations.
The four-page memo has been described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.
Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump “dossier” played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.
