Pres. Trump: Republicans Want To Fix DACA Far More Than Democrats Do

President Donald Trump on Friday refused to allow public disclosure of a Democratic response to a contentious House Republican memo on the FBI's Russian Federation probe - which Trump approved for release last week.

The previously released Republican text alleges anti-Trump bias in the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election that brought Trump to power.

"The Democrats sent a very political and long response memo which they knew, because of sources and methods (and more), would have to be heavily redacted, whereupon they would blame the White House for lack of transparency", Trump tweeted.

McGahn's letter said Trump has directed the Justice Department to be available to House intelligence committee members should they wish to edit the memo to eliminate classified information.

He said Trump was still "inclined" to release the memo in the interest of transparency if revisions are made.

But the deeper question - one that has huge implications for the fate of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation - is whether Trump is using his power to thwart any attempt by Congress to hold him accountable.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-California, accused Democrats on his committee of not immediately taking action to redact the memo for political reasons. "I think they talk about DACA, but they don't want to help the DACA people", said the President.

Ticket prices increase at Disney World and Disneyland
A one-day adult ticket for Disneyland or California Adventure is $99 for the low-demand days, such as weekdays in May. During regular days, admission has been raised up 4 dollars more, coming to $119 for adults and $113 for children.

Mueller is also investigating whether Trump has committed obstruction of justice in trying to impede the Russian Federation probe. "This is an American disgrace!" the president tweeted February 3, one day after the Nunes memo was released.

"This is particularly disturbing given that just one week ago, President Trump released a partisan memo drafted by his Republican allies".

Trump, after overriding the FBI's rare public remonstration that the GOP memo contained "material omissions of fact", is now posing as a sober guardian of classified information.

On Friday, Trump refused to declassify the Democratic document. "What does the President have to hide?" she tweeted. Nonetheless, the Democrats on the committee will confer with the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to "determine how we can properly inform the American people about the misleading attack on law enforcement by the GOP and address any concerns over sources and methods". Ryan also said he thought the Democratic document should be released.

Mr. McGahn's letter included a document from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, raising concerns about passages in the Democratic response that involved "longstanding principles regarding the protection of intelligence sources and methods, ongoing investigations and other similarly sensitive information".

Democrats have countered that the GOP memo was inaccurate and a misleading collection of "cherry-picked" details.
