The most sensible Democrat at the House intelligence committee publicly accused the panel’s Republican chairman Wednesday night of secretly altering a labeled document that the committee had licensed for unlock.
In a letter to Chairman Devin Nunes of California that he later posted on Twitter, Rep. Adam Schiff of California stated that the panel’s Democrats had simply realized that night that the memo sent to the White House for Justice and national-security officers to overview used to be no longer the similar file the committee had voted on.
“It is clear that the [Republican] Majority made material changes to the version it sent to the White House, which Committee members were never apprised of,” Mr. Schiff’s letter stated.
“White House [is] therefore reviewing a document the Committee has not approved for release,” Mr. Schiff wrote on Twitter.
His tweet accused Mr. Nunes in my view of making the adjustments, despite the fact that his letter is much less explicit.
