WH: Dems' Memo Situation Shows 'Hypocrisy on the Left'

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

By    |   Monday, 12 February 2018 10:22 AM

It is "absolutely not true" President Donald Trump blocked a Democratic memo on the Russian probe because the White House has a lot to hide, and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., knows that, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Monday.

"[That is] absolutely not true; Adam Schiff knows this and knows it well," Gidley told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "Talk about the hypocrisy on the left on this particular issue."

At the outset, Democrats complained the memo released from Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, led by their chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., would be "devastating to nation security," but then when the GOP memo came out, they demanded their own memo be released, Gidley said.

"Which is it, hurting national security or not?" he said. "Also, they voted against the release of the Republican memo. It was a vote along party lines. The Republicans voted unanimously to release the Democrat memo."

Trump declassified the GOP memo, he added, because it did not release sources and methods, while the Democratic memo "does not keep American lives safe."

"It reveals serious national security information that could quite frankly put our lives at risk, and the president is not going to do that," Gidley said.

Meanwhile, the immigration debate will hit Capitol Hill on Monday, and Trump has been clear where he stands on that, as he has been trying to find a long-lasting solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Everything in the president's framework on immigration is laid out in the new Senate bill, Gidley said, not just a DACA solution, including building a border wall, ending chain migration, and ending the Visa lottery.

Gidley also Monday supported the president after he tweeted over the weekend his belief in due process concerning allegations made against staffers Rob Porter and David Sorenson, both accused of domestic violence by former wives.

"The president has been out against domestic violence for a long time," he said. "[He] thinks that domestic violence is grotesque. He has said that on multiple occasions. There is no place for it in this country and the White House and the president won't stand for it. "
