Trump Orders Revisions To Dems’ FISA Rebuttal Memo

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee were told to redraft their rebuttal to a controversial GOP memo alleging government surveillance abuse during the 2016 campaign, saying sensitive details need to be stripped before it can be made public. 

Democrats have been expected to use their memo to try to undermine Republican claims that the FBI and DOJ relied heavily on the anti-Trump dossier to get a warrant to spy on a Trump associate – and omitted key information about the document’s political funding. Democrats claim the GOP memo was misleading.

“We think this will help inform the public of the many distortions and inaccuracies in the majority memo,” California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the panel, said Monday.
