President Donald Trump is refusing to release the Democratic memo on the Deep State Wars.
Trump is not able to declassify some of the information in the memo prepared in part by Rep. Adam Schiff, which is intended to be a counterpoint to Rep. Devin Nunes’ memo confirming that anti-Trump conspirators used a phony dossier to obtain a FISA warrant to surveil Trump Tower.
Insiders accuse Schiff of putting classified information in the document so that Trump would be unable to release the memo without redactions. Then, Schiff could claim that Trump made redactions to his document.
Instead, Trump is playing the upper hand and refusing to release the redacted memo.

Schiff is routinely accused by insiders of leaking information from the House Intelligence Committee to the press.
Schiff is on a losing streak. Recently, the Democratic ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee fell for a prank that confirmed his anti-Trump bias.
Comedians Vovan and Lexus, posing as Ukrainian politicians, offered Schiff naked pictures of Trump, and spun a fable about Trump’s supposed interactions with Russian celebrities.
“Okay. And so Putin was made aware of the availability of the compromising material?” Schiff asked.
Schiff asked if information could be turned over to his committee and to the FBI that could corroborate the claims.
Schiff clearly fell for the subterfuge, pledging to “have my staff follow up to get spellings” of names and locations.
“Obviously we would welcome a chance to get copies of those recordings,” Schiff said.
“I’ll be in touch with the FBI about this,” Schiff added.
