Trump declines to release Democratic memo

The White House on Friday night declined to release the memo prepared by Democratic members on the House Intelligence Committee

In a letter transmitted to the committee late Friday, the White House counsel Donald McGahn said though President Trump was “inclined to declassify” he won’t be doing so because of national security reasons.

In the letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., McGahn said Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein were involved in the review of the 10-page memo.
