This is another strategic, political game of chess. Which party can outsmart the voters??

Of course the RW is getting it's talking points from Fox and other RW news media. Their premise is that the Dems deliberately loaded their memo with sensitive material so they could CRY FOUL--because they knew Trump wouldn't release it. You'll love this brand of journalism, brought to you by Legal Insurrection: Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) is the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, and he appears to be playing a dangerous game with the Democrat rebuttal to Republican memo written by Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA). Released last week, the Nunes memo alleges that the FBI under Comey and Obama used questionable means to obtain FISA warrants on at least one member of then-candidate Trump’s campaign team.

The House Intelligence Committee voted to release the Nunes memo, and the White House insisted on redactions after consulting with the FBI and others in the intelligence community.

Meanwhile, back at Schiff's office.....

Democrats immediately wanted to issue a rebuttal memo, and Schiff set about constructing one. This should not have been an issue, as they have every right to rebut the Republican memo.

However, Schiff—who recently made the bizarre allegation that Russians are using the 2nd Amendment to “get Americans to kill each other”—appears to have purposefully loaded the Democrat rebuttal memo with sensitive materials in order to set the stage for undermining President Trump.

I have to admit it's a pretty smart strategy---IF IT IS TRUE. Think about it.
Trump would be damn'd if he did, and damn'd if he didn't... so he didn't, for now.

We can only imagine Trump (in the Oval Office) reading the Dem doc, thinking....what does this mean?? Naturally, he's too stupid to understand the ploy so he calls the smart guys into the room and says "I don't get it." They explain the strategy and of course, Trump is livid.

Obviously, the problem is this. BOTH parties voted to release BOTH memos. Hmmmm....but no worries, peeps. The memo will find it's way to the NYTimes or WAPO, don't ya think??
