Liberal Rep. Adam Schiff said Wednesday that he believes the GOP intentionally tampered with the bombshell FISA memo expected to be released this week, adding that his Republican colleagues had made “material changes” to the document before it was sent to President Trump for review.
Rep. Schiff made his stunning accusations in a letter to House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes just days after the committee voted to release the four-page memo; urging the GOP leader to delay its publication should the President approve its disclosure.
“After reviewing both versions, it is clear that the Majority made material changes to the version it sent to the White House, which Committee members were never apprised of, never had the opportunity to review, and never approved,” Schiff wrote.
“It is now imperative that the Committee Majority immediately withdraw the document that it sent to the White House,” he added. “This is deeply troubling, because it means that the Committee Majority transmitted to the White House an altered version of its classified document that is materially different than the version on which the Committee voted.”
Schiff’s comments come on the heels of the FBI’s stark warning about releasing the controversial memo, saying the bureau had “grave concerns” over disclosing the information to the American people.
