After President Trump blocked the Democratic memo from being released, liberals immediately jumped to calling him a hypocrite. However, Nunes exposes how Democrats purposefully got their own memo blocked just so they could have that narrative.
“So this was after they had accused the Republicans of putting sources and methods into our memo, we actually did not, we just put in what the thought the American people needed to know. It was clear from the development of the Democratic memo from the very beginning that they packed it full of sources and methods,” explained Nunes in a Fox News interview.
“The White House did not deny the — the release of the Democrat memo — the Democrats’ memo. What they did is they said look, you need to make some redactions and some technical corrections here and we will get it out right away. Now, from that point, we’ve heard nothing but crickets,” said Nunes.
“If they really wanted to get it out, they’d be down there all day yesterday redacting it, getting it back over to the White House so that the public can know what’s in it. So this is — this is nothing but politics,” he explained.
“We actually want the Democratic memo out. We think it’s ridiculous on the face of it. We think it’s very political how about they attack myself, they attack Chairman Gowdy, they turn Carter Page into some super-secret Russian spy, they talk about how Christopher Steele is a really, really good source when we know that he lied to the FBI. So we want this out,” explained Nunes. Check out the interview below.
