Trump does not want this released. It will not prove what he wants it to. He knows this but he also knows if he makes a lot of noise about releasing it and gets everybody insinuating it's damaging when they vote not to release it he can say see the dems are hiding stuff and wont let this info out. It's all part of his showmanship. I'm willing to bet the memo never gets released. That way it maintains its mystique.

Sorry but i think the american people are still used to how Obama acted and Trump is nothing like him. POTUS and congress has to follow certain protocols to make the release totally legal. People would freak out and hold him accountable if he did anything wrong during this. It's nice to see the haters all pretending like there life depends on it but they can't fool me.
Are we talking about the same idiot who claimed on Twitter that Obama wiretapped him and that he would present the evidence but never did ?
Trump and the GOP would be all over this, but they aren't because the memo is pure bs.
Even if the memo held a bit of credibility no one would believe it other than brainwashed Trumpsters. You know why? Because Trump and his minions have spewed so many lies the past year. Hell if there was a recording of Hillary and the FBI planning to overthrow Trump people wouldn't care.
You could nominate a potato to run against Trump next time and the potato would win because people will be sick and tired of lies and all the glorification of Trump.
It took Obamas fanboys 7 years to make Obama unlikable, you guys did it with Trump in less than a year.

Without releasing the source material (which gives context) the memo is simply a cherry-picked false narrative with a specific agenda (by increasingly desperate people), similar to a college student picking passages to argue an obscure point in a paper.
Without seeing context, that's all it is.

I agree. It's a MEMO, not an actual document or publication.

You're right that we don't know if it's cherry-picked or false. Releasing the memo might make it obvious whether it's true or not, but probably we still won't know without the source material being released. Otherwise they could just release the sources straight away, if they don't contain anything more secret than memo itself.

Only those with something to hide could possibly be against its release.
I know many dems lawmakers are pitching a fit, but that's just Trump hate.
This should not be a partisan issue. The only way to protect our American freedoms is with transparency. If the DOJ/FBI are surveiling US citizens without proper cause, may they rot in prison. The patriot act is already going too far IMO. If they are going past those boundaries, fry em.

But Trump never campaigned on the platform he would be "transparent", that was your butty Obama. And his transparency is about to come to light, weather he likes it nor not.
I don't blame you folks, I'd be really nervous if I knew how badly I was about to look. The left is going down in flames. And I don't care how many from the right burn, as long as some of the "untouchables" get touched. I think it's time they learned they have recourse to their actions as well.
But if it makes you feel better, say something like "Trump lies", of you could pull out all the stops and say he's orange, but I'd save that one for the grand finale.

I was not aware that transparency was a platform. I though it was a given
Trump is like a caged animal, if not for the reasonable people around him, he would have self destructed long ago. He has a feral mind that needs to be released. It is cruel to keep him restrained by intelligence and reason.
Don't you think president Pence better?

they can release the memo,,, But what if. they don't come out with all of it. As always, they will hold back some information (Maybe the most important info) and show us (American citizens)what they want us to see. Remember we don't always get a full truth from our world leaders. We know this.
