Rep. Wenstrup: Dems' Memo Needs Redacted of 'Personal Insults'

The Democrats' rebuttal to a GOP memo detailing FBI surveillance abuses needs to be vetted  and redacted extensively, as it includes a number of "personal insults" and comments that compromise investigation methods, Rep. Brad Wenstrup said Tuesday.

"I can tell you, the one we voted on to move forward to the White House certainly needs vetting and redaction of things that would compromise methods," the Ohio Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

"Also, there are personal insults in there and attacks that I don't think need to be in there."

Wenstrup, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said Democrats have complained that the GOP memo was not vetted before it was released, but it had been checked by the FBI and legal analysts.

But the Democratic memo attacks key figures on the Intelligence Committee, Wenstrup said, including Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who wrote the memo.

There is still a great deal of information that needs to come forward, said Wenstrup, and he expects "we are going to do everything we can to be the oversight for the American people and be as transparent as we can."

Further, he believes that new FBI Director Christopher Wray and "for that matter, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein" have a "great opportunity to lead their agencies to a better day by working with Congress and bringing forward everything that's involved."
