President Donald Trump won't release the Democratic rebuttal to the Republican intelligence memo alleging FBI abuses of its surveillance authority at this time, and has sent it back to the House Intelligence Committee for changes.
US President Trump has said he won't declassify a memo written by Democrats refuting Republican claims the FBI was biased against Trump's 2016 campaign.
The White House on Friday said that President Donald Trump is "unable" to declassify a memo drafted by Democrats that counters GOP allegations about government surveillance abuse in the FBI's Russia probe.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday to lament "lives are being shattered" by a mere allegation in the wake of the resignations of former White House staff secretary Rob Porter and speechwriter David Sorensen following allegations of domestic abuse.
A classified memo by congressional Democrats related to investigations of Russian influence in the 2016 U.S. presidential election is "very political and long" and must be "heavily redacted" before it could be released, President Donald Trump said on Twitter on Saturday.
