Donald Trump Just Blamed Democrats For Him Not Releasing Their Memo

Donald Trump decided to block the release of the Democratic memo on Friday. The next day he decided to blame Democrats for his decision, saying that they knew their document would have to be heavily redacted.

Trump took to Twitter on Saturday morning where he said:

“The Democrats sent a very political and long response memo which they knew, because of sources and methods (and more), would have to be heavily redacted, whereupon they would blame the White House for lack of transparency. Told them to re-do and send back in proper form!”

Trump had no problem releasing the Republican memo last week. He even stated that the GOP memo “vindicates” him in the Russia investigation.

According to White House counsel Don McGahn, “although the president is inclined to declassify” the Democratic memo, the administration believes it would create “especially significant concerns” for “national security and law enforcement interests.”

Multiple lawmakers criticized Trump for not releasing the memo after The House Intelligence Committee had voted unanimously to release it. Lawmakers claimed that Trump is “hiding something.”
