The Left’s Reaction To The Democratic Memo Madness Is Completely Disingenuous

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 05: Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, answers brief questions from the media while boarding an elevator at the U.S. Capitol February 5, 2018 in Washington, DC. The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is scheduled to meet later today to vote on the release of the minority rebuttal of a memo released last week by their Republican counterparts relating the committeeÕs investigation of Russian influence in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The Democrats’ counter-memo will not be released. At least, not until Democrats revise it.

“Although the President is inclined to declassify the memorandum, because the memorandum contains numerous properly classified and especially sensitive passages, he is unable to do so at this time,” White House Counsel Don McGahn stated.

Predictably, Democrats are outraged.

Their reactions are completely disingenuous. Ready for the truth? We predicted this would happen.

This was by design. Democrats deliberately compromised sources and methods, because they wanted this reaction. They wanted Trump to ask them to rework the memo. That way they could say, “Wow! President Trump is a total hypocrite! What is he hiding?!” They did this to make Trump look shady and non-transparent. This was the plan all along. Schiff is a worm.

At the end of the day, I’m all for releasing this memo the RIGHT way. I’m not in the mood for the left’s game, and that’s exactly what this is to them. A game. They had to create this “Trump is hiding stuff” narrative first, because the actual memo is probably so lackluster, it’s embarrassing. Rep. DeSantis already confirmed that. He said the counter-memo is nothing more than a bunch of nonsense designed to confuse everyone. It doesn’t refute facts in the Nunes memo. Not one bit.

We’re dealing with disingenuous snakes. Remember that.
