Trump Blames Dems For “Very Political” Memo

The Associated Press reports:

President Donald Trump on Saturday morning offered an explanation for his decision not to release a Democratic rebuttal of the Republican memo that made the case the F.B.I. abused its powers and was politically motivated in the spying on of Carter Page.

Democrats have been angling for the declassification of their memo, which they claim outlines selective omissions made by Representative Devin Nunes, who authored the GOP document the Trump administration cleared for release last week.

Trump tweeted Saturday morning the Democratic memo was a “very political and long response.” The president said the Democrats knew, because of the sensitivity of the information they included in their memo, that it would need to be heavily redacted.
