WH Suggest 10-Page Democratic Memo Is ‘Too Lengthy’ For Trump To Read
Last Friday, House Republicans released their memo crafted by House Intel chairman Devin Nunes, which claims the FBI sought surveillance on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Democrats argued that the memo was filled with errors and holes, which caused them to come up with a rebuttal memo.
On Monday The House Intelligence Committee voted unanimously to release the Democratic memo to the public and so Democrats sent it to the White House for review.
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly was asked today if Donald Trump had read the memo. He hinted that it was “too lengthy” for Trump to read.
When asked if Trump read the entire memo, Kelly said “no,” but that “we’ll get some people to brief him on it” after.
It’s been reported in the past that Trump doesn’t like to read lengthy reports. According to the Huffington Post, memos prepared for Trump “must be no more than a single page. They must have bullet points but not more than nine per page.”
Trump himself admitted that he doesn’t read long reports.
“I like bullets or I like as little as possible. I don’t need, you know, 200-page reports on something that can be handled on a page. That I can tell you,” Trump told Axios last January.
