The ‘trap’ memo, compiled by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, was not authorized for release by President Donald Trump because it revealed too much about sources and methods.
“The Democrats’ memo reveals serious national security information that could put untold American lives at risk and the President is not going to do that. This was purposely put in the memo in order to trap the President from one of many angles,” our source declared.
The memo was compiled in response to its Republican counterpart which alleges broad abuse of FISA authority by top officials in the Department of Justice and the FBI. Democrats say their memo will push back and add key context to the document released by Devin Nunes and other House Intel Republicans.
The Republican memo found that the FBI and the Department of Justice did not disclose the political origins of the Steele dossier in its FISA application on Trump campaign associate Carter Page and revealed previously undisclosed testimony from former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, in which he confirmed that an investigation into Page would not have occurred without the dossier.
The White House told Congress Friday Trump would not release the Democratic memo saying “although the President is inclined to declassify the February 5th [Democratic] Memorandum, because the Memorandum contains numerous properly classified and especially sensitive passages, he is unable to do so at this time.”
Luckily our President has keen eyes and a keen mind and is making the right decision in forcing the crooked Democrats to send an appropriately formatted document that can actually be declassified. “It’s truly sickening to know that no life is sacred to Democrats. They will use any means necessary to politicize and weaponize anything possible to attack and derail Trump and Republicans,” our source commented.
