And the hypocrisy of this just kind of reaches out and grabs you by the throat.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-California, accused Democrats on his committee of not immediately taking action to redact the memo for political reasons.
On Friday, White House counsel Don McGahn informed the committee of the President's decision, writing in a letter that although Trump is "inclined to declassify" the memo spearheaded by the panel's ranking member, California Rep. Adam Schiff, "he is unable to do so at this time".
"And if we redacted it, then there would be an outcry that said the White House is trying to edit it", Mr.

But Democrats are unlikely to push for a vote in committee to override the White House's objections to releasing the memo until Schiff's meeting with the Federal Bureau of Investigation occurs, a source tells CNN.
In a tweet Saturday, Trump said the Democrats' memo was "very political and long" and would have to be rewritten before it could become public because it reveals too much sensitive information.
Schiff was responding to remarks from President Trump, who said he did not initially approve the Democrats' FISA memo because it disclosed secret sources and methods. Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe said the dossier was necessary to obtain the warrants on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page, according to the memo. "Now they claim when they release the Republican memo that this was in the interest of full transparency and all the White House people were saying full transparency".
In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Mr. Nunes said the White House should get it over with and allow the release of the "ridiculous" memo.
"We actually want the Democratic memo out".
"But look, this President has called for transparency and accountability".
