The mainstream media got all wee-weed up (to use a phrase from Barack Obama) about a 10-page memo penned by Democrats intended to rebut the blockbuster memo by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.
The GOP memo, written by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and released last week, clearly showed that Obama’s Justice Department and his hand-picked minions at the FBI abused a surveillance program in order to spy on President-elect Donald Trump. Democrats (and their minions in the MSM) went into overdrive to dispute the memo (not very effectively, by the way).
So, Democrats decided to put together their own memo, drafted by hyper partisan lawmaker Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). But they really didn’t care if the memo was released — in fact, they packed it with highly-classified information to make sure that it either wasn’t released or that it was heavily redacted. Their intent: Bash Trump and Republicans for lack of transparency.
Trump saw through their little reindeer games and nixed the whole thing . . .
The Democrats sent a very political and long response memo which they knew, because of sources and methods (and more), would have to be heavily redacted, whereupon they would blame the White House for lack of transparency. Told them to re-do and send back in proper form!

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who had no role whatsoever in the House memo, said: “The President’s double standard when it comes to transparency is appalling. The rationale for releasing the Nunes memo, transparency, vanishes when it could show information that’s harmful to him. Millions of Americans are asking one simple question: what is he hiding?” (Read more from “Trump Tweets out Real Reason He Refused to Release Democrats’ Rebuttal Memo” HERE)
