    Post Trump won't declassify Democratic memo on Russia probe

    WASHINGTON (AP) Citing national security concerns, the White House on Friday formally notified the House intelligence committee that President Donald Trump is "unable" to declassify a memo drafted by Democrats that counters GOP allegations about abuse of government surveillance powers in the FBI's Russia probe.

    They have been after Trump for over a year now and still have nothing.... I think it's time to give it up....

    But you know they won't. They may have to try to fix the country if they stop trying to destroy Trump and we all know they can't.

    This particular memo appears to be been a deliberate trap for President Trump though. If he had declassified it and allowed it to go out as is, it would have included information that should not be made public for which he would have been damned. If he redacts anything any it to remove the classified portions that should not be public, he is accused of a double standard since he didn't redact anything in the Nunes memo. If he sends it back and tells them to clean it up and resubmit it, he is accused of refusal to be transparent. There was no win-win option in that one.

    And of course the MSM is not explaining it as it should be explained but simply regurgitating the engineered Democratic talking points.

    He should have turned the memo over to the FBI and made the decision to release or not to release, the FBIs. Put the democrats in the position of arguing with the FBI.
    Life is more fun, if you do not take it too seriously.

    Except, they will not believe him. If he had openly said he was going to turn it over to the FBI and the decision was strictly up to the FBI, they would have to believe him.

    funny how they all argued against releasing the Nunses Memo as it was too classified to release, but AFTER it was released they all claim its a "nothing burger"
    so the dems made up a mermo that actually HAS classified info on it to set him up

    Yep. I think that is exactly what they did.

    There isn't a whiff of integrity or intellectual honesty in the lot of them.
