When it comes to avoiding landmines, no one does it better than Mr. Trump.
House Intel Committee Democrats released a ‘memo’, supposedly in rebuttal of a GOP memo that shows Obama’s administration abused the FISA process to spy on Trump.
The Democrat memo was intentionally left full of sensitive information that would have to be redacted due to its nature – as soon as the Republicans did that, the landmine of ‘cover-up’ outrage Democrats would explode would’ve taken all the oxygen in the room.
But, this ain’t Mr. Trump’s first walk through a minefield. He knew the game, knew the players, and so he threw the memo back at them and told them to ‘do it right’…
…then tweeted “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!” (emphases added)
Well done, Mr. President.
And, if these Democrats on the House INTELLIGENCE Committee don’t understand a need to keep sensitive intelligence information secret, after all this time…
…we question what they’re doing on that committee…or in Congress?
(And, by the way folks, let’s recognize once again that, absent the President’s tweet, his reasons for sending the ‘memo’ back to be done right would have gone unreported. So those who complain about his tweets may want to re-think their objections…otherwise, it’s tantamount to admitting they would prefer media blackouts, rather than truth.)
