This is an outrage I never thought I’d see. Having been a lawyer working for two different House committees, I have never seen such naked partisanship — ever. The actions of the majority are, in my view, near treasonous. At the least, they show a reckless disregard for the truth and for Congress’s constitutional mandate to be a check on the Executive. Instead, they seek to help the Executive hide whatever it is he is obviously and desperately trying to hide. The staff propaganda “memo” should not be released. If it is, it should have classified material redacted and the redacted minority memo should be released simultaneously. That is the way it was done when I was counsel to House committees. And there is good reason for it.
