Adam Schiff Just Issued a Brutal Response To Trump’s Demand To Alter Democratic Memo

Published

Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) said Tuesday night that members of his party won’t revise their countermemo, despite President Donald Trump’s demand to do so.

“We’re not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. And obviously, we’d like to keep those to a minimum,” Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told reporters, according to CNN.

“The White House has a different interest. I think their interest is in redacting anything that doesn’t reflect well on the White House,” Schiff said.

President Trump last week blocked the release of the Democratic rebuttal to a GOP-crafted memo accusing the Justice Department and FBI of abusing a surveillance program, claiming “significant concerns” for “national security and law enforcement interests.” Trump said he would release it if Democrats are willing to revise and resubmit the document.

The committee previously voted to make the 10-page Democratic memo public after Trump declassified the Republicans’ four-page document.

Democrats have argued their memo will respond to and provide fuller context for the claims made in the Republican memo.

Schiff said during a Sunday interview on CBS’s “Face The Nation” that he believes Trump doesn’t want the Democratic memo to be made public because it will undermine his claim that the Republican document clears him in the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

‘I can’t In Good Countenance Continue To Show This’: Fox News Cut Away From Trump’s Press Sec. For Pushing Baseless Claims Of Election Fraud

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday cut away from a press briefing featuring Kayleigh McEnany, who is both the White House press secretary and a Trump campaign spokesperson, as she continued to push Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said as he cut off the press conference, pushing back on what he described as “explosive” charges from McEnany.

“Not so fast,” Cavuto added.

McEnany suggested, without evidence, that Democrats welcomed “fraud” and “illegal voting” in the 2020 election.

“We want every legal vote to be counted,” McEnany said, echoing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that votes for President-elect Joe Biden were illegal.

Though multiple major news outlets, including Fox News, have declared Biden the projected winner of the 2020 election, Trump has refused to concede and is rejecting the results, claiming that he won the election.

Meanwhile, a number of world leaders have congratulated Biden on his victory, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Even before the end of voting on November 3, the president repeatedly signaled he would claim the election was “rigged” against him if he lost, but there is no evidence to substantiate such claims.
