Rep. Himes: Dem. Memo Will Be Released Despite WH Resistance

(CNN)

Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., said Tuesday that the Democratic memo written in response to the one from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., will come out despite a lack of support from the White House.

Last week, Republicans released the memo about the investigation into the Trump campaign's connections to Russia, accusing the FBI of improperly obtaining a surveillance warrant on a member of the campaign team. Democrats contend that the memo leaves out important information, and they wrote a memo of their own that's intended to provide clarification, but has not been released.

"I guess I would bet against the White House saying what it said with the Republican memo, which was 100 percent, it's going out. I think we're going to see some noise. I think we're going to see some obstacles," Himes, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said on CNN.

He added that the actual facts may be irrelevant after the damage done to the Justice Department and its various institutions.

"It served it's purpose. Because now there's a meaningful percentage, it's not a huge percentage, but there's a meaningful percentage of the American people running around saying, 'Gosh, that FBI, I'm not too sure they're on the up and up,' " he said.

"It's a terrible, terrible thing because there was a time when people stood up for facts and what was true."
