Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after President Trump refused to approve of the public release of the House Intelligence Committee Democrats’ memo, following the Committee vote:
 
“President Trump’s refusal to release Intelligence Committee Democrats’ memo is a stunningly brazen attempt to cover up the truth about the Trump-Russia scandal from the American people.  The President’s decision to block the Democratic memo from release is part of a dangerous and desperate pattern of cover-up on the part of the President.  Clearly, the President has something to hide.
 
“The U.S. intelligence community has concluded, and members of Trump’s cabinet agree, that the Russians interfered in our election and plan to do so again.  America’s intelligence and national security are being politicized.  Why won’t the President put our country before his personal and political interests?”
