[Ed. – As I said repeatedly. The Republicans were never blocking it. The Democrats’ memo just had to go through the same release process as the Republicans’, with prior review by the House’s full Democratic caucus. It has done so, and the Republicans on the Intelligence Committee have posed no objections to its release.]
The House intelligence committee voted without opposition on Monday to declassify a secret Democratic rebuttal to the once-secret Republican memo about alleged surveillance abuses that was unveiled on Friday.
The Democrats’ document now goes to the White House, where President Trump will decide whether it should become public.
White House spokesman Raj Shah told reporters traveling aboard Air Force One on Monday that the administration would review the countermemo by intelligence committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., as it did the first one by Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif.
