The Democratic counter-memo deserves to be read by Americans, "once the necessary redactions have been made," says Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.

President Donald Trump on Friday blocked the release of the the memo that rebuts the GOP memo released by the House Intelligence Committee alleging the FBI and Justice Department abused their authority to obtain a warrant to spy on a former Trump campaign adviser suspected of being an agent of Russia.

The same committee last week voted unanimously to release the Democratic memo, produced by Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California, but Trump cited concerns about classified information contained in the 10-page document.

"Although the president is inclined to declassify the Feb. 5 memo, because the memorandum contains numerous properly classified and especially sensitive passages, he is unable to do so at this time," White House counsel Don McGahn said in a letter sent along with the memo to the panel’s chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.

Biggs, a Trump supporter, also made comments on Fox News that if someone wanted to embarrass Trump, “you would quote extensively from classified documents & force a delayed release & redactions.”
