Schiff: Democrats will not revise their FISA memo

2 min read

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, indicated Tuesday night that Democrats have decided not to make any revisions to their memo on FISA surveillance, in spite of the White House’s insistence that they do so. Instead, Schiff indicated, Democrats will ask the White House to redact any information they allege is necessary in order to protect national security.

According to The Hill, Schiff told reporters, “We’re not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. And obviously we’d like to keep those to a minimum. The White House has a different interest. I think their interest is in redacting anything that doesn’t reflect well on the White House.”

Schiff’s memo is in response to a memo drafted by House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (D-Calif.), which alleged abuses by various Department of Justice officials during the course of obtaining a FISA warrant on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page after Page left the Trump campaign. Nunes’ memo was released by the committee, with the support of the White House, on February 2nd. Schuff and other committee Democrats alleged even before the Nunes memo’s release that it was inaccurate and incomplete, and vowed to draft their own.
