Schiff: Dems Won't Revise FISA Memo Response

"Adam came down from Mount Ego. As he came down from the mountain with the two tablets of the FISA memo in his hand, Adam did not know that he was still bug-eyed after consulting with his puppetmaster.”

Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, said yesrday panel Democrats will not make any revisions to their response to the Republican memo alleging surveillance abuses by the FBI and DOJ in the Russia probe.
"We are not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. Obviously, we'd like to keep those to a minimum. The White House has a different interest," Schiff added. "Their interest is in redacting anything that doesn't reflect well in the White House."
Democrats say their 10-page memo provides more context to the GOP memo, which details how the FBI and DOJ applied for warrants from the FISA court to gather information on Carter Page which the President refused to declassify citing “significant concerns for national security and law enforcement interests.
The Steele dossier was paid for by Hillary, a fact that was never disclosed in the application for the warrant, according to the Devin Nunes memo.
While the President can be overridden by parliamentary procedures in the House, it is unclear how the Democrats’ decision not to revise their memo will impact his decision to allow its release to the public.
The Democrats deliberately booby trapped it.
