Trump meets with FBI, Justice officials on Democratic intelligence memo

That's because Trump just decided not to release a potentially damaging memo - written by Congressional Democrats - that rebuts a previous memo Congressional Republicans wrote alleging serious anti-Trump bias in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Democrats said that memo mischaracterised sensitive information and was meant to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of potential collusion between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation.

CNN reported Wednesday that Trump is expected to authorize the release of the Democratic memo after a review process, barring any threat to national security.

But White House chief counsel Don McGahn later said it could not be released in its current state "because the memorandum contains numerous properly classified and especially sensitive passages".

"The fact that the President is only interested in "transparency" when he thinks it "totally vindicates Trump" speaks volumes", said Sen.

The House Intelligence Committee voted unanimously on Monday to release the 10-page Democratic memo, and the committee rules gave Trump five days to decide whether to block or allow its release. The HIC chair Devin Nunes' Republical memo criticized the FBI's investigation into Trump's campaign adviser Carter Page.




Trump also seized on revelations in the Nunes memo that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved a warrant application for surveillance on Page, raising the specter that the president could fire him which would trigger a potential crisis in who would oversee Mueller's investigation, since Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the probe.

The Nunes memo was declassified and released without any redactions, and Trump saw the document as evidence that the investigation by DOJ special counsel Robert Mueller was politically motivated.

Still, Trump will have to withstand attacks from Democrats arguing he's a hypocrite.

The minority memo describes in greater detail why law enforcement officials wanted to conduct surveillance on Page beyond the information contained in the Steele dossier, according to sources familiar with the document.

Rosenstein met with Trump on Tuesday to talk about the countermemo and begin the declassification review. But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on. "Then we will brief the president on it, he'll have a decision to make", Kelly said.

"Russia tried to interfere with our election in 2016, with or without a dossier", said Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., a former prosecutor and member of the House intelligence panel who helped advise staff on the GOP memo.
