(Washington Examiner) – Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Tuesday that Democrats may have purposely included classified or sensitive information in their memo countering the one drafted by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and his staff.
"I think the Democrats are politically smart enough to put things in the memo that require either the [FBI] or the Department of Justice to say it needs to be redacted. Therefore, it creates this belief that there's something being hidden from the American people," Gowdy, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News.
"Unfortunately, we are in an environment where you would include material that you know has to be redacted and you know responsible people are going to redact just so that questions will be asked," Gowdy continued.
