Republicans ‘just want to make this spin available to the public,’ he says
The explosive FISA memo that supposedly details wrongdoing by the Department of Justice against President Trump shouldn’t be released because the American people wouldn’t understand what it means, according to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).
Schiff, a top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was asked by CNN host Ana Cabrera if the FISA memo should be released to the public for them to draw their own conclusions.
“Well, because the American people unfortunately don’t have the underlying materials and therefore they can’t see how distorted and misleading this document is,” Schiff told her.
“The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller to circle the wagons for the White House. And that’s a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the bureau, but more than that, it’s a disservice to the country.”
