Trump Uses Ridiculous Excuse To Blame Democrats For Not Releasing Their Memo

This Saturday morning, Trump defended his decision to block the release of a memo from Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, by blaming it entirely on Democrats and arguing that they knew their document would have to be heavily redacted.

“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!” Trump posted.

Does anyone seriously believe that Democrats would knowingly draft a memo they knew wouldn’t be released? Either Democrats were not smart enough to put together a memo that could be released, or Trump is lying.

Not to mention, but what does it matter if the memo needs to be heavily redacted? If it needs “heavy” redaction, then do that and release it. Using redaction as the reason you won’t release the memo, is an unfair excuse on its face. Trump is clearly playing games and stalling the release of this Democrat memo.
