Dem Rep. Nadler on Memo: 'The Whole Thing Is a Charade'

Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., suspects Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, worked with the White House to put together a memo that is said to contain allegations that the Justice Department abused surveillance.

"I don't know that, but I certainly suspect it," Nadler, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, told CNN's "New Day" program on Friday. 

"I suspect it because, obviously, of the prior history of Nunes working together with the White Housem, and because, when asked whether his staff had coordinated with the White House, he wouldn't answer the question.

"So I suspect, yes, that the White House had a hand in preparing this. The whole thing is a charade," Nadler added.

"What you have is the president and these members of Congress being complicit in overturning considerations of national security by revealing information that the FBI says shouldn't be revealed," Nadler said,noting the FBI on Wednesday issued a public statement saying the agency had "grave concerns" about the accuracy of the memo.

Trump on Friday agreed to declassify the memo.
