Trump tells Democrats to refile Russian Federation probe memo

Trump meets with FBI, Justice officials on Democratic intelligence memo Trump to Democrats: 'No memo for you!'

A classified memo by congressional Democrats related to investigations of Russian influence in the 2016 United States presidential election is "very political and long" and must be "heavily redacted" before it could be released, President Donald Trump said on Twitter yesterday.

The president's rejection of the Democratic memo is in contrast to his enthusiastic embrace of releasing the Republican document, which he pledged before reading to make public.

Last week, Mr Trump defied warnings from the Federal Bureau of Investigation to release a Republican document that alleged the agency had abused its power by investigating a Trump adviser as part of its probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi accused the White House of politicising U.S. intelligence and national security after President Donald Trump blocked the release of a Democratic memo about the Russian Federation probe, saying that the President "has something to hide".

Trump called the memo "very political and long" and said he "told them to re-do and send back in proper form".

Democrats have criticised the President for failing to publish their new memo, claiming it showed a double-standard regarding transparency.

Schiff who has been feuding with Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, over the competing memos, said Trump is looking out for himself by blocking the Democrats' version.

"Got something to hide, Mr. President?"

Feinstein's statement Friday also said any changes that need to be made for the Schiff memo to be declassified should be made swiftly and the memo "should be released".

Democrats on the intelligence committee complained the Republicans' four-page memo cherry-picked facts and explained events out of context and was thus not accurate. "The White House ignored their concerns and approved the publication of the Republican memo with no redactions even though the action was described by the agencies as extraordinarily reckless and omitting material facts", he said.

Trump wrote on Twitter after the release that the memo "totally vindicates" him in the ongoing investigation into his campaign's alleged links to Russian Federation. "The bottom line is the Democrat memo does not undercut the essence of this scandal".

But the Democrats saved their main fire for Nunes' almost four-page memo with their 10-page rebuttal memo.

On Saturday, Trump defended his decision on the rebuttal, saying the memo is "very political" and "long".

Eisen, Fredrickson and Tribe pointed to reports indicating Nunes' memo may have been written as a justification for Trump to fire officials integral to the Trump-Russia investigation-including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
